One of Andy Cohen's most momentous years starts off with a hangover the morning after an epic New Year's Eve broadcast. But Andy doesn't have time to dwell on the drama, as his role as media mogul is now matched with the responsibilities, joys, and growing pains of parenthood. With a three-year-old son, Ben, and a daughter, Lucy, born in May, stories of late-night parties are replaced by early mornings with Ben, drama at the play-ground, and the musings of a single dad trying to navigate having it all. All this is set against the backdrop of constant Housewives drama, hijinks behind the scenes at Watch What Happens Live, a revolving door of famous faces, and a worried mother (and newly minted grandmother) in St. Louis.
The book shines in its descriptions of Cohen’s tender moments with his children ... It’s satisfying to witness his growth as he makes good on his goals for self-improvement and putting his family first.
The author displays the relatable wit and honesty that have made him a TV star ... Refreshingly, there is very little cynicism or exclusivity in this book. Cohen names his favorite restaurants and dearest friends, and he is unabashedly delighted at getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For a book that is all celebrity and (first) name-dropping, readers feel like they are part of the action.
