Andy Cohen Receives Seven Figures for Memoir

Originally posted 08/09/2011 09:20AM

Bravo host and behind-the-scenes executive Andy Cohen has signed a "low seven-figure" deal for his forthcoming memoir, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Cohen, 43, the network's executive vice president and host of Watch What Happens: Live says of the book: "It'll be a memoir, of sorts, about my intersections with pop culture over the years, from growing up in front of the TV as a kid in St. Louis to my years at CBS News, all the way up to today. The stories I've been saving up are funny and improbable and really define who I am today."

The book, due next summer from the New York publisher Henry Holt, so far has no title, and Cohen is asking for suggestions.

"The media doesn't tell the whole truth," the The Real Housewives of Orange County star, 49, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night. "There's a lot that hasn't been told."

Her relationship with Brooks Ayers has raised eyebrows since reports broke of his stints in jail for DUI and for not paying child support from a previous marriage. "I knew everything," she said of the reports. "There wasn't any secrets and lies."

Gretchen Rossi Is Not Rushing to the Altar with Slade Smiley

There will be no wedding bells just yet for Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley – and she's fine with that.

And although Rossi is head over heels for Smiley, 37, the fear of failure is keeping the blonde beauty from tying the knot for a second time.

"When I first got married, I thought I was going to be married for life," she said. "I thought that was it and it was really hard to fail at that marriage."
