Andy Cohen’s new book; Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries comes out Tuesday and there’s no shortage of juicy gossip about The Real Housewives in it.
“The Housewives are getting copies before the book comes out and, honestly, I don’t know who will be mad,” he told The Daily Dish.
Cohen shared that it’s his revelations with his relationship with RHONJ star Teresa Giudice that may stand out to some fans. “I printed a lot of emails that Teresa and I sent to each other in prison,” he said. “Sometimes my recollections of the emails are a little tongue in cheek, so I hope she takes them in that way.”
Andy also wrote about a secret meeting he had with Giudice before she reported to FCI Danbury. “I also wrote about a top-secret lunch that Teresa and I had right before she went to jail where we got a lot off of our chest. She told me how hurt she had been by me sometimes on episodes of Watch What Happens Live, she had left the show feeling like I had made fun of her or I had hurt her feelings,” he said, before recalling, “I had made a joke about her about how she might look in an orange jumpsuit. We didn’t wind up using that in the one-on-one that I did because it was inappropriate and I apologized to her.”
“I wanted to have lunch with her because I didn’t know if I would ever see her again, frankly,” he said. “I didn’t know if she would be coming back to the show , if we would be waiting to do the show until she came out.”
“I think she’s more vulnerable than people realize and I think she’s also stronger than people realize,” he said. “So it’s a weird juxtaposition, which is what makes her interesting. I was amazed by her spirit when she was in jail. She was very upbeat and she wasn’t feeling sorry for herself, which is more than I could maybe say for myself if the roles were reversed.”
