Andy Cohen is ready fo everyone to read his book, Most Talkative.

on May 7, 20120

 

I'm so excited that this week has finally come! My book, Most Talkative, comes out tomorrow and I can't wait for you to read it. My publishers call it a memoir, but I say it's a collection of funny stories from my life, from my childhood through today. I was voted Most Talkative in high school (as well as Biggest Gossip) and my mouth has gotten me in all sorts of trouble over the years (lying to Oprah Winfrey to get an interview, and getting busted) and also come in handy (hosting a talk show).I write about meeting a lot of my idols over the years and share stories that you wont believe, oh and I do share what goes on at Bravo, and take you inside the Housewives franchise. I hope you get some good dish from that.

Saturday night Anderson Cooper hosted a phenomenal book party for me at his home in Manhattan and it was the perfect beginning to what is going to be a fun week. In addition to some special stuff on WWHL all week (my mom will be bartending), I'm appearing this morning on TODAY and tonight on The Colbert Report, and tomorrow morning on Howard Stern (can't wait.) Later in the week watch for me on Charlie Rose, Anderson Cooper, Wendy Williams, and Morning Joe. 

I would love to meet you and I'll keep you up to speed on book signings as they come up. Here's where I'll be the rest of this week:

Hiya, Happy New Year. New to this. Just a question or 2:)

Just watched Real Housewives for the first time and watched New Jersey, am not sure who is who but there is a lady with a strange hairline and crazy eyes and she flipped a table? I gather that these people are consenting adults, but is not morally corrupt of you to make money of their shortcomings?

Thanks.

Andy, you need to get a handle on this hate the republicans thing...Carole R. made a super snide remark in tonight's (7/2/12) episode!  You guys and the media in great numbers like to bash republicans..why? Make you feel good...half the country is made of republicans politically and that is a lot of people.  If gays were being bashed "No8" like republicans I bet you would take a stand!  No hate if fine if it goes YOUR way but you accept it if it doesn't. THIS is the biggest hipocrisy of all!

Hello, Mr. Light of My LIfe! My son gave me your book for Mother's Day, and I'll treasure it always! I laughed so hard that I had to take little breaks! I dreaded coming to the end of it so much, that I'd stop and "save it!!!" The next book you write MUST be at least as long as War and Peace! I have to say this, I think Kathy Griffin is a riot, and even bought her mother's book, and loved it. Unfortunately, her show is meh. I think she's not warm enough or something to host a talk show. An hour of in your face shock treatment and fear is too much. YOU should move to that time slot! Oh, while waiting for my daughter in the orthodontist's office, I saw a woman reading your book, and we had a mini book club meeting right there! It was awesome! Love you! Allison

Hi Andy! Just wanted to find somewhere to drop you a note (that maybe you won't even see, but hopefully so!)..I wanted to thank you for having such amazing energy in all your shows. I try hard to stay awake till 10 each night to watch your show (working crazy hours owning my own biz makes that tough) but I've just recently started watching your after show videos in the morning to get my day going. I was in a funk this morning and watching your Dan Rather/John Mayer videos really got me energized & smiling and I think it's amazing when 1 person can make another person change their mood just by doing what they do best. So thanks! Now off to download your audiobook since so many people have been raving about it :-)

My Darling Andrew, Last night was amazing! Dan Rather is such a gentleman and the questions you presented to him were quite wild but he handled them Rather well! I'd love to see you interview him again. He's quite a good sport and you are an excellent interviewer. Seeing the three of you do the, Fallon Shot Ski, at the end was classic! You will have to do another book called, Nights with Andy, and have all the great photos of you with these wonderful American Icons acting BRAVO-LIKE. It's so great how people let their professional guard down and get in the Andy groove and have fun with everyone. You have a great gift of getting people to relax! It makes the viewer appreciate and love these icons even more! Have a nice Memorial Weekend and enjoy Fleet Week!

Your book was hilarious. I especially loved the "tain't" story!!! My sister has no idea who you are (gasp) but I convinced her to buy your book. She'll be hooked on Real Housewives by next week.

Andy, congrats on the book. As I have said before on previous blogs...it is so clear you are a fan of TV. It really shows on YOUR show! Last night with Mathew and Jerry could have been titled "Two and a Half Jews" -Mathew looks like an honary member of the tribe. You made these two big stars feel comfortable and wanting to be there. You're a total natural.

Hey Andy..

I love you and your show WWHL and cannot wait to read your book! I was wondering if you are going on another book tour -- maybeeee one that would stop in Boston ?! Also, does WWHL have a public audience -- how do I try for tickets!

Thanks !

Andy...love you and every franchise you've touched at Bravo. You dominate my DVR! Finished your book this weekend. What a fun read! I, too, saw Andy Warhol on my first day ever in NYC. He was talking to Yoko Ono outside the Dakota. We were hoping to see John Lennon (I'm a teensy bit older than you), but thought that pairing was a good substitute. Next celeb sighting that day was a trio of AMC stars in Times Square. Are we twins of different mothers?

Love the show tonight with Kathy, Rosie and Rich. However, I totally didnt' agree with the percentage that took Jac and Caroline's side. I totally think they were way out of line. I am sorry but as insane as you think Teresa is she makes the show for me. Kathy is now growing on me but Caroline and Jac need to go. I don't like Melissa either but I would rather watch her than the other two. Caroline is the bully and needs to stay out of it. She doesn't even stop her own boys from pushing it too far with Lauren. It is a sensitive matter and they could ease up. Caroline doesn't get it. I can't even stand to watch when her mug comes across the screen! Love, Love, Love you Andy. I agree with everyone else please more Bethanney!

Congrat's on your book! Loved Rosie, Rich and Kathy tonight on live! Please, please, please sign Bethenny for a season 4! Love that BRAVO show~You have a gem in her!

Andy, don't you think it is time to tell Teresa of RHWONJ, to get LOST!!! She makes crazy people look sane!!! If she is back next year, I know of one whole community that will not be watching. We get together and have a party when the show is on/ We LOVE Caroline, she is the only one that is sane!!!

Andy, your book was witty, hilarious & touching. I loved that you can poke fun at yourself and highlight all your bumps in the road and embarassing moments. I had no idea how you got your start and it was enlightening. I couldnt put your book down and I read it within 24 hours! I am with everyone else when I say I fell in love with your mother! She is a trip! It was also great finding out little unknown tidbits about you (like your familarity with the "Chen Bot!") ....MAZEL to you! Love you!! HUGE fan of you and your show! :)

Congratulations on your book! Love your show, watch it every night. Sunday was so hard to watch on HWNJ. Please Please give her a spin off. The fans will go nuts for Melania alone! Believe me it will get more ratings than Kathy Griffen. Cannot not imagine how that show will make it.

Love you Andy

Got your book as a birthday present today--loved it !! Your mom is a hoot--she chose some great home movies to show on WWHL.

Finished the book, Andy. Absolutely loved it! I'm in love with your parents. Your years at CBS & TRIO reminded me of one of Bethenny's rules from "A Place of Yes". "All roads lead to Rome." Without that experience, you might very well not have been ready for Bravo and all you've accomplished there. The book was such a fun read! You did a great job!

Hi Andy! I adore u on WWHL! I'm totally gonna buy ur book later dis afternoon... I was just reading d blog of RHONJ... It's true it's kinda weird for us viewers how u kinda bashed on Teresa last reunion. I get it, u were hurt when Joe G., made a comment but I guess T's answer was right dat her hubby is an adult she can't tell him what to do or not to do. But anyways, I still

Oh...one more thing... Your parents are lovely. Of all the mothers...I love Slade's mother. Happy Mother's Day. You are so funny. You are like Greg Kenner (when he had his show) and (I can't remember his name...the host of Family Fued). Your expresion is funnier than what you say. Love it.

Oh...one more thing. You are the funniest. You are like Greg Kinnear when he had his show, and (i can't think of his name...he wrote Think like a man, act like a woman). Your expressions are funnier than what you say. Love it.

Andy, Andy, Andy what can I say? You are really starting to grown on me. You had yet ANOTHER conservative on your show AND you love her like I do - Susan Lucci. I thought you were so cute with her on the show and it showed that you are her number 2 fan, me being number 1 of course.

Great show with Ryan, Fredrik and Michael as well. Glad to see they will be coming back as it is a very interesting show.

Best of luck with the book.

PS - Was Kelly Ripa a little tipsy the other night? Seemed like she was hitting on Anderson.

Andy,

I agree with you about N.C. Just curious about Alexis sitting on your set and how she feels about same sex marriages. I bet she just tolerates you and others to further her career. I imagine she and Jim have big opinions about the subject! Was she sweating with you too when you brought up the subject! LOL

Big congrats on the book, Andy! I love the example you set of working hard to attain your goals while also getting the most out of life and maintaining great friendships.

P.S. When is Rosie (NJ) going to get her own show?! I think she probably has a beautiful and fun story to tell. I envision more of a true docu-style rather than the crazy Housewives (not that I mind that) style. I'm riveted just looking at her "through the years photos"...

Congrats on your book! You are a very talented individual. I was thinking... Ever thought of reading some viewer comments from the blogs whenever those guests are on? It would be good to see what their on-air response would be... Just thinking on paper... Andy-You Rock!

Last night's WWHL show was so much fun! It was really nice to see something on Bravo that doesn't involve women tearing down/berating/complaining about other women!!!!! Bravo needs shows with more POSITIVE women who are DOING something USEFUL or at least INTERESTING...
