Andy Cohen Literally Doesn’t Have Time for Self-Doubt


    Andy Cohen Literally Doesn’t Have Time for Self-Doubt

    Even people who don’t consider themselves Bravo fans know that Andy Cohen is one of the hardest-working names in show business. In addition to hosting his nightly talk show Watch What Happens Live, Cohen has a pop-culture channel on Sirius XM called Radio Andy, serves as an executive producer for the Real Housewives franchise (you might have heard of it), has an eponymous book publishing imprint, and recently authored his fourth book, Glitter Every Day: 365 Quotes From Women I Love.

    “Women have totally shaped by life, starting with my mom to women in entertainment that I’ve loved to mentors and bosses that I’ve had,” he says about the book, which is now available for purchase. “And, of course, the Housewives are a huge part of my life. I thought, There’s no question in my mind I want it to be all women. This book is very me—it’s high and low.”

    “Glitter Every Day: 365 Quotes From Women I Love” by Andy Cohen



    In it, readers will take in words of wisdom from everyone from Madonna to Malala Yousafzai to the O.G. of OC Vicki Gunvalson. Or as Cohen says, “Where else are you going to find Ruth Bader Ginsburg and [Real Housewives of New York’s] Dorinda Medley in the same book?” 

    The book offers 365 days’ worth of advice from women on how they get it done…but how does Andy Cohen himself get it done? For Glamour’s Doing the Work column, we dug into everything from his morning routine to his biggest at-work challenge.

    Glamour: Do you have a morning routine? 

    Andy Cohen: My morning routine is built around feeding [my two-year-old son] Ben and getting him ready for whatever he is doing for the day. On weekends, I love a big breakfast, but during the week I just have a piece of toast and tea.  

    What was your first childhood dream job? 

    My childhood dream job was being myself on TV. It looks like I got my job!

    And what was your first actual job? 

    I delivered newspapers starting when I was in fourth grade, then spent every summer working at my family’s food company. I had part-time jobs every year of my life until I graduated and got full-time work at CBS News. 

    How do you deal with rejection at work? 

    I try to move on to whatever I have to do next and not get stuck in the moment of defeat.

    Is there a specific moment or a scenario when something just clicked and you realized, Hey, I might actually be successful at my job?

    I’m not someone who has ever lacked confidence, so I walked in the door thinking I was going to kill it. 

    What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve received? 

    To shut my mouth more and listen. I didn’t always take this advice.

    Your book offers advice from a number of powerhouse women. How did you choose which women to feature?
