The rumor mill has been abuzz lately that Bravo head honcho Andy Cohen is secretly engaged to his hunky pro-athlete boyfriend. So is it true?

A gossip site, The Fame Driven, reported last week that Andy is not only dating former NHL star Sean Avery, but that the two are secretly engaged. Say what?! However, it appears that Andy's dad, Louis Cohen, has a few words to say on the subject.

“That is not accurate information,” Louis tells Radar Online about Andy. “He is not engaged.”

Indeed, Louis should probably know the truth, given that Louis and wife Evelyn, Andy's mom, recently returned from visiting with Andy in NYC over the weekend. "Andy told me all these rumors are floating around, but he said it’s not true,” Louis continues.

Then again, Andy could just be pulling a fast one on his folks. “Unless he’s keeping something from me,” he points out. “But there really is no validity to [engagement] rumors.”

So does this mean that Andy is dating Sean, but that the two just aren't engaged? "That’s not necessarily true either," Louis says. "I’ve never even met Sean. Andy’s not dating anyone, to my knowledge. He’s just so busy." Uh, that's not exactly a denial. Just sayin'.

You may remember Sean's name popping up in the gossip columns over the years. Quite a while back, he dated 24 star Elisha Cuthbert — yes, a woman — for two years. Interestingly, he announced his retirement from hockey last year while on Watch What Happens Live. So he gave Andy the exclusive. Hmmm.

All that said, Louis is hoping Andy can find some time in his schedule to let in a little love. “For his own benefit, I’d really like to see him end up with somebody,” his dad adorably says. “But that’s not really my call!” 

Okay, so apparently Andy is not currently engaged. At least, we don't think. We'll keep you posted.
