“Cohen has so altered and redeemed the pop culture landscape — which had been suffering for years from snide snark and pseudo-hip cynicism — that he should be acknowledged as a genuine auteur, like maverick film directors.” —Camille Paglia

Award-winning television host and producer Andy Cohen is best known for Watch What Happens Live, Bravo’s late-night interactive talk show, and as executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise. His new memoir, The Daddy Diaries: The Year I Grew Up, details his experience as a glamorous but ultimately human father. Late-night parties are replaced by early mornings, Housewives drama is no match for what happens on the playground, and Cohen finds meaning in the most important job of his life.
