From a young age, Andy Cohen knew two things: He was gay, and he loved television. Now presiding over Bravo's reality-TV empire, he started out as an overly talkative pop-culture obsessive, devoted to Charlie's Angels and All My Children - and to his mother, who received daily letters from him while he was at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. In retrospect, it's hard to believe that everyone didn't know that Andy was gay; still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television.

Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

I enjoyed listening to this book and had no problem with the reader. In fact when it comes to the French language I love how the words sound. The story was interesting almost a back story to Ernest. Now, I'm listening to his books.

Insipid and uninspiring and BORING. I'm not even sure why I listened to the entire book. I guess I kept hoping for improvement.
