Andy Cohen Will Host Show on SiriusXM
NEW YORK (AP) - Andy Cohen loves pop culture about as much as he loves to talk. Now he’ll be talking pop culture even more for a five-week run on SiriusXM.
Cohen, who currently hosts the Bravo talk show, "Watch What Happens Live," says the new satellite radio show will cover more than "The Real Housewives" franchise.
"There will be some ’Housewives’ talk, I hope," Cohen said in a telephone interview on Monday. "I want to talk to Caroline (Manzo, "The Real Housewives of New Jersey") about a story that I tell in my book about when they were cast and how that casting went down."
Then he added: "But it’s not the ’Housewives’ radio show."
He wants the show to pick up where his book, "Most Talkative: Stories From The Front Lines Of Pop Culture," left off. Among the topics he brings up is his love for television, which he says began with it "two inches from my face."
Being passionate about television as a kid, Cohen says one of his favorite shows was the "Battle of the Network Stars," a reality series that pitted stars from the three major networks against one another.
