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.

If you're depressed, listen to this book!!!
I was in the worst mood for the past week, having many problems with my grown son who is living with me at the moment. I thought nothing could cheer me up until I started listening to Andy.
He's hilarious! My favorite part was his letters to his mother when he was a little boy away at camp. The way he describes his mother - and the way he voices her part - is just hysterical. Not only is it funny, it's endearing and it makes you wish you could meet her.
I really recommend this book if you are in the doldrums - it will get you right out of them. Highly recommended!

Any additional comments?
A must listen for any Bravo/Housewives fan. Andy's narration is fun and light and made my 8 hour drive fly by.
