Andy Cohen’s "Most Talkative" tells of his ascent in the television world. He now presides over Bravo’s reality-TV empire, and started as an overly talkative pop-culture obsessive, devoted to "Charlie’s Angels" and "All My Children" — and to his mother. In retrospect, it’s hard to believe that everyone didn’t know that Andy was gay. Still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television. The journey begins with Andy interviewing his all-time idol Susan Lucci for his college newspaper and ends with him in at a job where he has a hand in creating today’s celebrity icons. His show "Watch What Happens: Live," has him telling of absurd network-news mishaps, encounters with the heroines of his youth and the alleged real stories behind the "Real Housewives." 8 p.m. Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables.
