Andy Cohen spills so much tea about his famous social circle in his new book Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries, you might need a mop after reading it. Of course, one of his most famous and dearest friends, Sarah Jessica Parker, pops up throughout the book, but there's one mention that she made sure to clear up during her conversation with Andy at the 92nd Street Y in New York Thursday night.
In the book, Andy gives an anecdote about Sarah Jessica's twin daughters, Marion and Tabitha Broderick, and their lemonade stand. Andy and his and Sarah Jessica's mutual friend, John Benjamin Hickey, stopped by to see the business and found out that the girls were keeping the profits for themselves instead of donating the money to charity, as one might expect of the children of celebrities. "But I want you to know we did one for the elephants the next week," Sarah Jessica clarified at the event.
She then playfully said that she took issue with the fact that Andy had written that her daughters "were gonna do it for elephants or something the next week," as the Watch What Happens Live host put it during their 92nd Street Y talk. The Sex and the City star said that it seemed like Andy was in "total disbelief" of their philanthropic intentions and it was like he was "dubious" about it. "You are bringing your own stuff," Andy retorted.
Sarah Jessica explained that the lemonade stand was supposed to be a learning experience for her kids. "There is an art to you becoming a philanthropic business that donates," she said. "You can only do that when you are sustainable."
Andy has teased that he might make some of his well-known pals angry with his no-holds-barred approach to his new book in previous interviews, and it looks like he's already sensing some backlash. "The moral of the story is that I am f***ed with my friends," he said.
But actually, Sarah Jessica said she felt some pressure to not screw up her friendship with Andy when she sat down to interview him at the 92nd Street Y since she's normally the one answering the questions, not asking them. "Under normal circumstances, it would be a daunting endeavor, but a friendship hangs in the balance, an actual, real friendship, somebody I care about, who I hope I spend lots of time with in the future," she opened their conversation. "So nonetheless, I'm going to proceed."
Longtime friends of Andy's like Sarah Jessica may also be surprised by some of the intimate details the WWHL host reveals about himself in Superficial, which is ironically incredibly deep. Sarah Jessica told Andy that she found the book "surprisingly personal." "I expose my vulnerabilities, and it is in ways that I certainly never have to co-workers who are here, to family members who are here, to friends," Andy said of one of the things that's so scary about the book for him. "It just felt like if I was gonna do it again, it had to be bigger in every way. It had to be funnier. I had to go there in terms of naming names or saying what I think or really putting the stories in but also going there with myself. And I did."
Sarah Jessica also asked Andy if he wanted to discuss in depth one of the more intimate moments of the book where he revealed that he is considering becoming a parent since it was only briefly mentioned in the tome. "I want to be a parent, and I think that I am freaked out about completely changing my life," he said.
Being the good friend that she is, Sarah Jessica, who is the mother of three, consoled Andy in a way that only a bestie could. "You understand that is how everybody feels when contemplating parenthood. You are not special or unique," she said, dryly. "I just don't want you to linger on the stuff that freaks you out. By the way, I'm not saying you should have a child. We can discuss this more afterwards."
If you didn't know that Andy and Sarah Jessica had such a close relationship before, that was definitely clear to see during their conversation at the 92nd Street Y. Sarah Jessica lovingly poked fun at Andy throughout the talk, such as when she sarcastically joked that "we all benefit" from reading about Andy's love for massages in great detail in Superficial.
Andy and Sarah Jessica had such a great rapport during the night that it even sparked a brilliant idea for the WWHL host. "I will say thanks to the 92nd Street Y because Anderson [Cooper] interviewed me for my last book right here and because it was so wonderful, we decided to go on the road," Andy said of their AC2 live shows. "So maybe you and I will go on the road."
We can't think of anything more amazing.
