Andy Cohen's Childhood Camp Letters Show He Always Had a Flair for the Dramatic
The #WWHL host showed Stephen Colbert how adorably over-the-top he was as a kid.
Andy Cohen is usually an enthralled spectator to much of the drama between Bravolebs on Watch What Happens Live and during the various series reunions. But when Andy was a kid, he could actually give these Bravolebs a run for their money.
Andy was a guest on Tuesday night's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and he revealed that he developed his flair for the dramatic at an early age through a passionate reading of the letters he sent his parents from camp as a youngster. "I don't like this camp so much, but I've only been here four hours," Andy read from one letter describing his first impression of Camp Nebagamon in Wisconsin.
Believe it or not, Andy's feelings about the camp seemed to quickly go even further downhill in subsequent letters. "I'm about to kill this camp! I flunked the canoeing test four times, and I'm afraid to death to do it. You have to row out and tip the canoe over your head. I am frozen now," Andy read from another letter. "The canoe guy says I have to come back tomorrow, and I'm really scared. Please send me stamps and comics. I'm scared about tomorrow."
One of Andy's letters even seemed like something from an episode of The Real Housewives. "I just got back from Ted's cabin. I am steaming mad," Andy wrote. "Either you or one of the Arkins told Mrs. K or Nancy that I told you that Teddy was homesick. Teddy told me that his mom wrote him a letter that said Andy told the Cohens that you were homesick. He showed me the letter himself. I was red! I had to deny saying that. Do you know how hard that is? Keep your mouth shut."
But when someone doesn't understand the merits of your favorite movie-musical, it can understandably be frustrating. "See Grease for crying out loud!" Andy wrote to his parents. "See it! Grease is a good movie, so see it!"
