Andy Cohen, the popular host of the Bravo series, “Watch What Happens Live, ” author of a memoir, “Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Line of Popular Culture, ” and the first openly-gay host of the late-night talk circuit, has done it again. He has written a second memoir, “The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year.” He spoke with Glamour magazine about his second foray into the world of confessional lit.
He told Glamour that when an interview just doesn’t go well, that “it was only my experience. It is never as intense for anyone as it was for you.” Cohen says he was never starstruck. He would go right up to celebrities and say , “I want to interview you … having belief in your abilities makes others feel good about choosing you.” Through his managing “Housewives of New York, ” he learned to be upfront, telling the stars about ratings, success or lack thereof. He says having mentors like Sarah Jessica Parker and Bethenny Frankel have helped tremendously. In addition, his parents’ 55 year marriage has taught him about relationships. “They are exhausting, but they are great together. Don’t overanlayze a relationship.”
