Andy Cohen opens up about dating and finding love now that he has found fame in Attitude’s October issue.

Cohen became a household name after becoming the first openly gay host on a US chat show, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, as well as bringing the Real Housewives franchise to our screens.

But although he is one of the most sought after hosts – as well as being easy on the eyes – he admits he isn’t conscious whether his fame has impact his love life.

In an exclusive interview in the October issue of Attitude – available to download and to order globally now – Cohen says: “I’m not conscious of it, but that might be the case for the person dating me.

“I think it’s harder for other people to sit down with me and have a date because they have preconceived notions. 

“If I had never dated myself or I didn’t know me and it was just based on TV, I don’t know what I would think. I have no idea.”

Although single, Cohen – who is set to host the Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards 2018, powered by Jaguar in London next month – says he has been on dating apps but says it was less complicated hooking up with someone before he was famous but will still find time to hook-up.

“I have been, kind of on-and-off because it’s challenging. It’s weird,” he continues. “It was probably more uncomplicated hooking up before I became famous. 

“I still hook up. I mean, a guy’s gotta eat!”
