Andy Cohen Reveals He Was Once Diagnosed With Melanoma


Andy Cohen appeared on Live with Kelly Ripa on November 25th and revealed some news that shocked viewers. He shared that he once had melanoma and thanked Kelly Ripa for being the person that was so diligent about having him get it checked out by a doctor.

“I have to shout you out for something that you don’t know I’m going to shout you out for,” Cohen began. Andy recalled back in April how Ripa pointed out a “black dot on his bottom lip” that looked concerning.


“Well I had never seen it before, and I pay attention to people,” she said.

Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos pressured Cohen for weeks afterwards about going to a dermatologist appointment.

“Finally, I did, and it was melanoma and they removed it and the whole thing, and I just want to thank you because you were so dogmatic,” Andy revealed. “I am tanorexic. I love the sun, I really do, but be careful. And I, of course, never thought that that kind of thing would happen to me and it will change my relationship to the sun.” Ripa added, “It’s the third time I’ve picked out skin cancer on my friends.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
