Andy Cohen does GQ!

Andy Cohen

I think Andy Cohen is the type of person you either totally love or he just annoys the hell out of you. I happen to adore Andy, I watch his late-night Bravo talk show, Watch What Happens Live, pretty much every evening it’s on. He’s being featured in the February issue of GQ magazine, looking totally sharp and sexy, check out a few choice quotes below (he claims Jenny McCarthy is the one woman who could possibly turn him straight!), and head over to the magazine’s website for the full interview.

Andy Cohen on straight men watching his show, Watch What Happens Live:
“Yesterday, for example, I volunteered at Cantor Fitzgerald, did this 9/11 charity day. And I walked onto the trading floor, which is like being in the locker room of a football team or something—there’s a lot of testosterone. And every one of those guys knew who I was and had watched my show. I said this the other night on the show; I basically spoke directly to the straight men. ‘I know you’re watching. I met you on my book tour. You come up to me everywhere I go. And I’ve figured out why you like me: I show a bunch of boobs and asses and good-looking women. I get your wives and girlfriends playing drinking games. I get ’em wound up, I get ’em drunk, and just when they’re at the point where… I’m off the air.’ ”

…on his relationship with the “Bravolebrities” and his audience: 
“I feel a weird kinship with them, ’cause I actually feel responsible,” he says. On-air, Andy is skilled at maintaining a legit allegiance to his Housewives—and all guests, more generally—while simultaneously winking at the audience. “I think on my show or at the reunions, I can sense if the camera’s on me, and if they’re getting my response. And I feel like through my expressions, it’s fairly clear what I’m thinking. But at the end of the day, first and foremost, I’m always an enthusiast.”

…on the one woman that could turn him straight:
“Jenny McCarthy was the one I thought could turn me straight. I thought that if I could just get my shot with her, it could happen.”
