Andy Cohen is the host of Bravo’s late-night show, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Cohen has a long-standing relationship with Bravo, and he served as executive vice president of Development and Talent for the company until 2013. He was the executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning show, Top Chef, and he currently serves as an executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise.
There has always been a lot of interest in Andy Cohen’s love life ever since he publicly came out as gay. However, he has managed to keep the public eye away from his relationships. We can confirm that Andy Cohen is single.
Any potential partner for Andy must meet the approval of his son Benjamin
When Andy came out to his parents in 1988, gay men weren’t raising families and getting married. Although his mother accepted his decision, she told him that she mourned the fact that he wouldn’t get married and have a family. Now times have changed, and Andy has a son named Benjamin, who came into the world on 4th February 2019.
Ideally, Andy would have wanted to raise Benjamin with a partner, but he couldn’t wait any longer. He told People:
“It’s not something in your mind – ‘Oh, I want to do this alone.’ But I like being alone. I didn’t want to wait. To me it would have to be a very special person to say, ‘Let’s do this together.’ And I would love that, and that person could be having down the street at this moment and I’ll meet him soon.”
Andy has to consider his son when looking for a potential partner. He continued, “I’ll be looking for guys you want to bring home to Mom or bring home to your son.”
Andy Cohen has ruled out dating his longtime friend Anderson Cooper
It’s unlikely that Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper will ever date, despite their close bond. Howard Stern asked Andy in early January why he and Anderson haven’t dated.
“I just think it’s not what our relationship is based on,” Cohen said. “We’re just friends; that’s not a part of it. I think, at this point, we know each other too well. We’re not attracted to each other in that way.”
Cohen conceded that Anderson is handsome but insisted that he considers him a great friend.
The duo’s sons, Ben and Wyatt, enjoy regular playdates, but it took a while for the boys to warm up to each other. In a November 2020 appearance on Cohen’s show, Cooper recalled the moment that his son, Wyatt, and Ben bonded:
“Yeah it was sweet ’cause I was playing with them both and Ben kissed Wyatt on the cheek and hugged him and it was so cute and he did that a couple times. And my heart kind of melted.”
He was involved with a mystery man who was reportedly 19 years his junior
In October 2016, Andy Cohen told The Daily Dish that he was taken. He stated, “I met him with Anderson Cooper on the opening night of my tour with Anderson. And Anderson has loved this guy from the moment I met him.”
Radar Online claimed that this mystery man was Harvard Ph.D. student Clifton Dassuncao, but Andy didn’t confirm the rumors.
In March 2018, Cohen told Entertainment Tonight that he was single. He didn’t give a reason for the breakup, but he described his ideal partner. He said, “Someone who’s very independent, someone who has their own thing going on. Maybe someone who’s never seen The Real Housewives.”
Andy Cohen and actor John Hill dated many years ago
Andy Cohen and John Hill dated many years ago, and they recently addressed their relationship during John Hill’s show The Feels Live. Radio host Michelle Collins asked the pair several scandalous questions, and their replies gave us an insight into their relationship.
Cohen revealed that he once asked John to do a three-way, which he declined, and that there’s probably a sex tape of the couple on the internet. He also stated that the pair broke up because they were in different places in their lives.
John and Andy work closely together, but there is little chance that they will rekindle their relationship. Hill has a boyfriend, and Andy is happy for him. Andy said, “I think he’s great. I’m very into it. I love what he brings out in John. My life is easier when John has love.”
