Andy Cohen recounts his latest trip to St. Tropez.

on Jul 14, 2011

 

I am back from St. Tropez with a little jetlag and a little tan and no bags under my eyes. We're popping bubbly at Bravo today, celebrating our five Emmy nominations including nods for Top Chef and Kathy Griffin. My timing for a return seemed to be good! 

I was only gone for five days, but putting my Blackberry away helped make it feel like a proper vacation. I ran into a bunch of random people at lunch on Tuesday at Club 55 ,including Lisa Vanderpump's stepson and Hoda and Kathie Lee's sidekick, Sarah. 

I read Sally Bedell Smith's The Life of William S. Paley: In All His Glory which is an exhaustive look at the CBS founder, featuring many details about the founding of the networks and the inner working of his superchic wife, Babe. I can't imagine that Paley would've been too thrilled with the book, which characterizes him as, among other things, a self-hating Jew who aspired to the WASP lifestyle and a credit-grabber. It was a good read. 

I am so excited for tonight's Watch What Happens: Live featuring Jeff Lewis and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Susie Essman. Jay Mohr did a great job the other night -- didn't you think??
