“A remarkable book . . . It's an important text when it comes to understanding what it is to be a gay man today.” ―Time
“Cable TV's dishiest guy at his dishy best. . . a glamorous, goofy look at 365 days of a charmed showbiz life.” ―Kirkus
“[Cohen's] writing style is conversational and tight, infused with snarky and self-deprecating humor . . . He owns the name-dropping and navel-gazing, but has the honesty, wit and confidence to pull it off, striking a balance between being self-involved and self-aware.” ―The Associated Press
“A wild, starry ride.” ―Us Weekly
“After reading this funny, intimate, candid, honest diary of a year in Andy's life, I couldn't help but wonder, 'Is Andy Cohen...Carrie Bradshaw?'” ―Sarah Jessica Parker
“The funniest thing I've done all year is read Andy Cohen's Diaries. He has more genuinely funny and surprising encounters with celebrities and sublebrities in a day than I do all year. Then my name popped up. Now I just want to sue him.” ―Anderson Cooper
“I am not, nor have I ever been, engaged to Andy Cohen. But his book is really funny.” ―Sean Avery
“Andy Cohen keeps the oddest hours of anyone in the building. he comes, he goes, he comes back (in the middle of the night.) Now, I finally found out where he's going. If you ask me, nobody should be allowed to have this much fun.” ―Surfin Percy, Andy's Doorman
“Andy Cohen's diaries are the literary equivalent of a Fresca and tequila.” ―Jimmy Fallon

Watching Andy's talk show and reunion shows in the past, I often admired the way that he handled the shenanigans of the Real Housewives. I thought his ability to mediate those disputes but still ask tough questions was quite remarkable. That hasn't changed.
I also thought that he seemed like a funny, normal, down-to-earth guy.
However, this book showed a side of Andy in which I was truly disappointed. I have been disillusioned by Hollywood and the people who clamor for it for a long time now. His friendships with Anderson Cooper, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, etc., just aren't that impressive to me. I doubt that I would ever want to know people who have been in the Hollywood machine for any length of time.
For someone who produces reality TV (and yes, I get that there truly is no such thing), his reality is quite different from mine. I'm not talking about the money (though of course, how many of us could afford to buy the apartment above us to turn it into a duplex and also have a house in the Hamptons?) I'm talking about the idea that doing drugs is okay - he openly shares his pothead status on WWHL and in the book. As someone who is LEGALLY taking ADD drugs, I was offended by him taking half of one when it was offered to him. Gee, thanks! People like you are the ones that make it so that I have to visit my ADD doc every 8 weeks to get refills on my prescriptions and my insurance has to approve the drug for me every year.
Andy also shares that he has a guy who comes to his home and gives him 2 hour massages on a regular basis. Who doesn't?
For someone who criticizes the 1% so much, he sure seems to live exactly like them.
Were there parts of the book I devoured? Yes, there were. It wasn't a terribly written book, though I've noticed some reviewers thought so. It was just that the man behind the curtain was revealed. And not in an attractive manner.

It is, as it says, totally shallow! It's totally written/read in diary style... each entry starts with the day & date. Each CD has 11 tracks and the tracks are an average of 8 minutes long... and there are 11 Cds in total.
He doesn't go into extensive detail about any celebrities, or any of the situations, it totally sticks to a diary entry type style, which I really enjoyed. He gives enough information about each story so I'm able to imagine exactly what he's talking about, but then he moves onto to another story that is just as fun, and entertaining. Also, if you are a regular WWHL viewer, you will totally recall some of the shows & guests he's talking about... he's already cleared up a question I had about Terrance Howard's appearance. It's definitely a fun listen!
I'm only 3 discs in, but already, Andy is one of my best friends (in my mind) and I would LOVE to spend a weekend hanging out with this guy... he knows how to have fun, Fun, FUN!!
