Parnassus Books is thrilled to welcome Andy Cohen as he signs Superficial: More Adventures From the Andy Cohen Diaries.
The mega popular host of Watch What Happens: Live and executive producer of The Real Housewives franchise is back, better than ever, and telling stories that will keep his publicist up at night.
Since the publication of his last book, Andy has toured the country with his sidekick Anderson Cooper, hit the radio waves with his own Sirius station, Radio Andy, appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher despite his mother’s conviction he was not intellectually prepared, hosted NBC’s Primetime New Year’s Eve special, guest edited Entertainment Weekly, starred in Bravo’s Then & Now with Andy Cohen, offended celebrities with his ongoing case of foot-in-mouth disease, and welcomed home Teresa “Namaste” Giudice, from a brief stint in jail. Hopping from the Hamptons to the Manhattan dating world, the dog park to the red carpet, Cardinals superfan and mama’s boy Andy Cohen, with Wacha in tow, is the kind of star that fans are dying to be friends with. This book gives them that chance.
Andy Cohen is the host and Executive Producer of “Watch What Happens Live,“ Bravo’s late night, interactive talk show. The series is the only live show in Late Night, and features everyone from “Bravolebrities” to big names in pop culture, including Oprah, Cher, Lady Gaga, Meryl Streep, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson, Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Fallon, Anderson Cooper, Kelly Ripa, and many many Real Housewives. He also serves as Executive Producer of “The Real Housewives” franchise and hosts the network’s highly rated reunion specials.
In May 2013, Cohen became a New York Times best-selling author for the second time with the release of the paperback version of his book, Most Talkative: Stories from the Frontlines of Pop Culture published by St Martin's Press. The hardcover, published by Henry Holt, also achieved similar success back in June 2012, spending 13 weeks on the list.
Most recently, Cohen served as Bravo’s Executive Vice President of Development and Talent from November 2011 to present. He was responsible for creating original content, developing innovative formats and identifying new talent. He also served as Executive Producer on Emmy and James Beard award-winning “Top Chef.”
Born in St. Louis, Cohen is a graduate of Boston University where he received a B.A. degree in broadcast journalism. He’s won an Emmy and two Peabody Awards for his work, and he lives in New York City with his dog, Wacha.
