Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Narration by the Author or Authors, 2013

The man behind the Real Housewives writes about his lifelong love affair with pop culture that brought him from the suburbs of St. Louis to his own television show.

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. The journey begins with Andy interviewing his all-time idol Susan Lucci for his college newspaper and ends with him in a job where he has a hand in creating today's celebrity icons. In the witty, no-holds-barred style of his show Watch What Happens: Live, Cohen tells tales of absurd network-news mishaps, hilarious encounters with the heroines of his youth, and the real stories behind the Real Housewives.

Dishy, funny, and full of heart, Most Talkative provides a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the world of television, from a fan who grew up watching the screen and is now inside the TV, both making shows and hosting his own.

Terrible book as much as I read!

Would you try another book from Andy Cohen and/or Andy Cohen?

I have always loved Andy and still do, however this book was ridiculous. How could anyone who was listening to this (Audible) ever keep up with all of the people, initials, names etc. I tried to listen and re-listen but it would take me years to figure who was who, so I finally returned it to audible that is the best part of having this version. The book means nothing without knowing who and what he is talking about not to mention he speaks so fast you can't ever keep up without replaying it every few sentences.

Has Most Talkative turned you off from other books in this genre?

No just this one, I liked the other one!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andy Cohen?

No one but he needs to slow down and also pronounce the names clearly

What character would you cut from Most Talkative?

All of them that we don't know who they are!

Any additional comments?

Too fast and too many people that we don't know who they are! Write a book with all of the names!

So much fun!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Really fun listen! I was sad when it was over.

What does Andy Cohen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

his impressions of his parents and Blouse (character in the book) are amazing.

Not Literature, But A Lot of Fun.

Any additional comments?

This carefree, and at times heartfelt, book is not going down in history as great writing, but it helped me get my mind off of a hard time in my life. I feel life Andy is my fabulous, gossipy friend. This book is fun escapism.

Cohen uncensored & sensational

I loved the stories--all connected in an amalgamation of LOL moments from Cohen at his funniest, disarmingly charming self.
