In a new interview for Attitude, Andy Cohen describes is “pretty uncensored.”
“I talk about poppers and about bottoms on my show. That’s the thing, I’m really open about who I am and am unapologetic, so I think there’s something freeing in that.
I think it’s harder for other people to sit down with me and have a date because they have preconceived notions.
If I had never dated myself or I didn’t know me and it was just based on TV, I don’t know what I would think. I have no idea.”
It wasn’t always like that. Cohen was recently the subject of a homophobic story in the National Enquirer that said when he first came out, sex “scared” him.
“I came out in 1988, at the height of the [AIDS] epidemic. I was so scared to have sex. And it’s why I’m alive today, because I was really scared.
It was a scary time to be gay, it was a scary time to be sexual… It’s always kind of there in one way or another. It’s not something you can erase from your experience.”
As for hook up apps now, Andy says he uses them. Hooking up was easier before he was on TV every night.
“I have been, kind of on-and-off because it’s challenging. It’s weird. It was probably more uncomplicated hooking up before I became famous.
I still hook up. I mean, a guy’s gotta eat!”
