The thing I loved about his book was the candid way he talked about his own life and his own experience growing up and coming out as a gay man. I did find it interesting that Andy seems to write of his coming out as part of his life, but not the defining feature of his life. In coming out, his family seemed to embrace him and move on with life, so the person he speaks of with greatest fear was his good friend and college roommate. I was so moved by his expression of fear and concern over telling his friend and really could start to appreciate how that must have felt for him. In the end, his roommate embraced his coming out and the two are still good friends today.
There seems to be an integral connection between Andy's pop-culture obsession and his current job, all fueled by healthy doses of all that is uniquely Andy. His memoir talks about his early days on national, morning television--including stories about Oprah Winfrey, various CBS news anchors, and other celebrities that made this a real page turner. Just the stories behind the Housewives franchise (which really is a pretty small portion of the book), make it a must read for fans.
I really enjoyed Andy's story. There is such a nice mix of happy and serious, to really echo what we see with the real Andy Cohen on his show. His anecdotes and memories are funny, fast-paced, and engaging. Now I will just hope that he writes another book, with more great "behind the scenes" stories for us in a few years down the road!
I didn't give it 5 stars only because I suspect, if you are not familiar with Andy Cohen, if you don't appreciate the Bravo network and its shows, you will not enjoy the book at all. If you are a fan, you will truly enjoy this read!
