The face of Bravo, Andy Cohen, is about to get his star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has released its list of honorees, which includes some of the biggest names from film, television, radio, music, theater, and sports. Cohen is one of the television stars to have been selected.
Recipients are chosen by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Walk of Fame selection panel, which is composed of actual Walk of Famers. Cohen will receive the 2,711th star. “Andy Cohen is one of the most entertaining guys in show business and always keeps all his guests on their toes,” said Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in a press release. “There’s never a dull moment with Andy and we’re looking forward to seeing that in action at his star ceremony.”
It was originally announced in 2019. Cohen reacted to the news on Twitter back then, sharing that he was “kind of in shock” and grateful to be receiving the star.
The out TV personality celebrates his 10th anniversary as the host of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen this year. He also cohosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live alongside Anderson Cooper (very memorably this year) and has two channels on SiriusXM, Radio Andy and Andy Cohen’s Kiki Lounge. He’s also a four-time New York Times best-selling author.
His fellow television honorees for 2022 include Byron Allen, Greg Berlanti, Ricky Gervais, Peter Krause, Bob Odenkirk, Holly Robinson Peete, Norman Reedus, Tracee Ellis Ross, Jean Smart, Ming-Na Wen, and Kenan Thompson.
The unveiling ceremony is planned for this Friday at 11:30 a.m. Pacific time. Joining emcee Nicole Mihalka for the event are Garcelle Beauvais, John Mayer, and Lisa Rinna. The event is being streamed live on WalkOfFame.com for those who can’t attend and want to see Cohen’s big moment.
