Andy Cohen's new book may be called Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries, but within its pages, the Watch What Happens Live host gets deep. In one part of the tome, Andy talks about loneliness and wanting more out of life writing, "I know there's something deeper for me in my future. I need there to be."
Andy explained those existential words during an interview with Matt Lauer on The TODAY Show Monday (clip above). "I think it was a moment of my life, and we all have moments of extreme happiness and loneliness a lot, and that was a moment I was having," he said. "I am the least introspective person typically, but the course of writing this diary, actually, for three years has made me think about things in a totally different way."
He went on to say that means he's considering "opening myself up to love and a relationship and maybe a kid. I think I'm closer to that spot than I ever was."
And raising a child is something Andy said he could see doing whether or not he's in a lasting relationship. "I feel like I can just do it," he told Matt.
But of course, Andy does currently have a boyfriend, and he said "everything's great" in his relationship these days. "I put the pen down in May of this year because I'm sitting there writing at Memorial Day, and I was looking at this guy," Andy said. "I started to get emotionally exhausted reporting on my life kind of, and I said, 'I have to go live it. I've got to go do this. There's this great guy here.'"
