 Janine from Circulation suggests Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture by Andy Cohen

Most Talkative book coverAndy Cohen is the mastermind behind the Real Housewives franchise, and in his book Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture, he fills readers in on the road that led him to Bravo. Cohen is candid, and doesn’t hold back in terms of embarrassing moments or behind-the-scenes stories about the Housewives or other guests from his nightly Bravo talk show, Watch What Happens Live. Cohen’s story is full of humor as he details his rise through show business, leading ultimately to his job as an Executive on the Bravo network. He’s not afraid to talk about his own celebrity obsessions and character faults, making for a fun read that’s even more enjoyable in the audio version, which is narrated by Cohen himself.

If you’re already familiar with Andy Cohen or just enjoy celebrity gossip, Most Talkative won’t disappoint.
