The star-studded and sidesplitting follow up to The Andy Cohen Diaries.
The megapopular host of Watch What Happens: Live and executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise is back, better than ever, and telling stories that will keep his publicist up at night.
Since the publication of his last book, Andy has toured the country with his sidekick, Anderson Cooper; hit the radio waves with his own Sirius station, Radio Andy; appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher despite his mother's conviction he was not intellectually prepared; hosted NBC's primetime New Year's Eve special; guest edited Entertainment Weekly; starred in Bravo's Then & Now with Andy Cohen; offended celebrities with his ongoing case of foot-in-mouth disease; and welcomed home Teresa "Namaste" Giudice from a brief stint in jail.
Hopping from the Hamptons to the Manhattan dating world, the dog park to the red carpet, Cardinals superfan and mama's boy Andy Cohen, with Wacha in tow, is the kind of star fans are dying to be friends with. This book gives them that chance.
If The Andy Cohen Diaries was deemed "the literary equivalent of a Fresca and tequila" by Jimmy Fallon, Superficial is a double: dishier, juicier, and friskier. In this account of his escapades - personal, professional, and behind-the-scenes - Andy tells us not only what goes down but exactly what he thinks of it.

Having loved the previous book this was a chore to get through. I was so disappointed that my appreciation for Andy greatly reduced. He seems so overtaken by his role that he's become aggressively vapid. Also his relationship with his dog is insanely co-dependent and I can't stand hearing how many small attacks this dog has made with him brushing it off as oh the dog was abused. Just zero heart.
"Wanted to love it...but"
First let me say I took other reviewers advice and listened at 1.25. Also, I love everything Bravo so I was going in a fan and wanted to love it. But it was a little overhyped and if Andy wasn't over himself by the end - I was. It becomes whiny in places where no one can possibly be empathetic. (Sorry, not sorry Andy that your closet is palatial)?
I kept expecting tales of fun escapades or crazy housewives adventures. Doesn't happen. It's a daily diary of who he saw & where - but nothing salacious like I thought. It's good if you enjoy Bravo & Andy but it's not everything I expected. I wanted to badly to love, but came away with like.
"Was so excited but disappointed"
I was sooo excited for this book.
I was disappointed.
Andy was entertaining and I love his enthusiasm when he reads but I expected a lot more stories / substance.
This book seems true to its title: "Superficial".
Meaning even when he describes more than just what he did that day...has an anecdote...he seems to just breeze over it ...lightly brushing on it so much so that you sometimes almost miss it.
I feel like this was an over promise under deliver situation. Total bummer.
"Gossipy and at times ..............flat"
He does what he does - so don't get to bothered when he over-acts. No, i would not listen to it again -- this is like a gossip newspaper - you just peruse and throw it away - that is the purpose of it all, and NOT a Churchill Biography....LOL
I was looking forward to Andy's third book. The first two had been outstanding, this one was a disappointment for me. This did not feel like a look into his life but more a lame attempt to follow up a truly great second book. I am an Andy fan but this book needed something more or less don't really know!
"Andy is always hysterical!!"
Andy delivers non stop fun and hijjnks. Great fun!!! Listen only if you are ready to laugh out loud!
This book is golden!! Love listening to it on my way to and from work each day it's like I got to live a Hollywood life in the comfort of my own car!
"Audio book is the way to go, Andy is hilarious"
Andy's voice and narration is great to listen to. His asides are often quite funny and he definitely delivers. The story is more of the same, which is great for me but I can understand why some people might think one diary is enough. Overall I enjoyed it and couldn't stop listening.
"What a fun ride! Put me in a good mood daily!"
This book is like a visit with your best friend in the world where you talk about everything and nothing and all the stuff in between. Loved Andy and his mom the most.
"Maybe I shouldn't have.."
I'm embarrassed to say I watch the housewives. It makes me feel better about myself since these people on the shows prove that they will do anything to be a celebrity, and no amount of money or dignity will compete with faux fame.
I've always viewed Andy as someone that was just excited to be a part of it but still a good guy and tried to show people on his watch what happens live show as normal, fun loving people. Well after listening to his book I've changed on him and now have a strong dislike for him. It would be fine if he was just superficial but he's not he's now conceited and seems to sexualize every single person telling us how hot every guy he comes across is. He has now just become a dirty old man with a big head.
**If you are thinking about buying this book just be prepared to not hear any good gossip but instead you will hear about all the men he finds hot. He did do a good job reading his story (after he informs us he hates doing the audio recording)
"Lovely and entertaining"
Such a fun read/ listen. Andy Cohen's stories are so engaging and fun, you can't help but relax and enjoy the ride!
