As if picturing a young Andy Cohen's first celebrity encounter isn't adorable enough, wait until you read about where it took place: a Mexican food restaurant!
Cohen, who released his first memoir this week, Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture, shared an excerpt from the book and tells how he first met Susan Lucci, his idol at the time. For a homework assignment at Boston University, Cohen scored an interview with Lucci and her publicist; the kicker? It was at a Mexican restaurant, Lucci's choice. He writes, "In fact, I hate Mexican food. I have a lifelong aversion to beans, and I wanted to see the studio. On the other hand: Susan Lucci and I are going to lunch? On a date? Me gusta!"
