Andy Cohen, the celebrity producer behind the wildly popular “Real Housewives” reality TV franchise, is teaming up with Henry Holt to launch Andy Cohen Books, a new imprint that will release three nonfiction titles in 2020.
Andy Cohen Books’ inaugural list will feature an as-yet untitled memoir by superstar pop singer Mariah Carey about her career and rise to pop prominence; Jackie Walter’s The Queen V, a book focused on vaginal health; and Bevy Smith’s Bodacious Dreams and Bevelations, a memoir about her transformation from business women into a national motivational personality.
Cohen is best known as the executive producer (and an Emmy Award-winner) of a host of hit reality TV franchises: among them the aforementioned Real Houswives in addition to Project Runway, Top Chef, and Queer Eye. He is also host and executive producer of the live talk show, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and also curates Andy Cohen Live, a Sirius XM radio channel that features a lineup of entertainment and media celebrities.
The partnership with Henry Holt further cements Cohen's ties to the publisher. Cohen is also a bestselling author and Holt is the publisher of Cohen’s three books, which include, Most Talkative, The Andy Cohen Diaries and Superficial.
