Bravo's Andy Cohen to publish memoir

Fans of Bravo's Andy Cohen will not be surprised to learn that in high school he was voted "most talkative and biggest gossip."

So the title of his new memoir – really a book of stories from his life, he says – is a no-brainer: Most Talkative: Stories From the Front Lines of Pop Culture.

Cohen, the chatty host of Watch What Happens: Live and various Bravo reality reunion shows, gave a very funny dramatic reading from his new book at a promotional lunch in New York Wednesday. Most Talkative is due from Henry Holt on May 8.

He read excerpts that included a childhood car trip from hell (as far as his relatives were concerned, since he didn't shut up for 48 straight hours) and the time a few little lies got in him in hot water with his idol Oprah Winfrey.

Cohen, who grew up gay and loving TV, says his book "begins and ends with Susan Lucci." And he covers his days as a "Jewish go-go dancer," and of course, The Real Housewives franchise.

It's assumed that there will be material from Watch What Happens: Live, where it's fair to say you never know what might happen.
