Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Did Andy Cohen Create Bravo?

If you’ve ever wondered what lovable TV personality Andy Cohen’s deal is, we’ve got all the details. He didn’t exactly create Bravo, since the network launched in 1980 — putting the man behind the Real Housewives reunion shows at all of 12 years old!

Andy started working at Bravo in 2005. Currently, he is the Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development for Bravo. (Try saying that three times fast!) That important role extends over a giant range of TV shows that he has helped produce, including: Bethenny Getting Married?, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, The Millionaire Matchmaker, Project Runway, Flipping Out, The Rachel Zoe Project, Top Chef, and of course, the Real Housewives franchise.

That’s not all! Andy is also the Executive Producer and fab host of his talk show Watch What Happens Live.

Before hitting a major home run with Bravo, A.C. spent 10 years at CBS as the Senior Producer for The Early Show and 48 Hours. We wonder if he ever thought he’d be mediating catfights....

Talk about one savvy man!
