Andy Cohen With Long Hair

By now, you've probably seen the (incredible) photo of Andy Cohen from back in the day with his Fabio-esque long, curly hair -- and the fine folks over at CBS News remembered it too, and they busted out some old footage while Andy was there this morning.

During his interview promoting his new book Most Talkative, Andy was chatting with the CBS crew, who at the end of the segment cut into old footage from 1994 when Andy got a bit of a makeover on air. "I had long hair, that's my makeover!" Andy gushed as they started to show the footage. "I had my ponytail cut off on the morning show. I had had this ponytail for so long," Andy said as a stylist snips away, ultimately resulting in a nice swirly 'do.

Watch it below:


Cohen was back home in a way, as he began his television career at CBS. "I was here for 10 years ... I started as an intern in '89. I was at CBS News for 10 years, 8 of them spent in the morning ... I was so happy," Andy said during the interview.

During his time there, he was behind-the-scenes and never really focused on becoming on-air talent because someone told him his wandering eye would keep him behind the camera. "It wasn't until 18 years later that I wound up on the air in a very organic, cool way," he said.
