LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Being “The Real Housewives” guru appears to have its perks!
Andy Cohen, Bravo Executive Vice President and host of “Watch What Happens Live” – along with hosting every “Housewives” reunion special – has landed a seven-figure advance for his upcoming memoir, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“It’ll be a memoir, of sorts, about my intersections with pop culture over the years, from growing up in front of the TV as a kid in St. Louis to my years at CBS News, all the way up to today,” Andy wrote on his blog about the upcoming book. “The stories I’ve been saving up are funny and improbable and really define who I am today.”
A THR source close to the negotiations said publisher Henry Holt believes the book will connect with “housewives who think Andy is their gay best friend.”
The book, which is due next summer, does not have a title yet, but Andy did offer up a few names that will not be used.
Titles you won’t see on the cover of his book include, “A Million Little Mazels,” “Curlytop!” and “Stories Sarah Jessica Told Me.”
