Andy Cohen Says He's Not 'Bangin' Sean Avery: VIDEO


A paparazzo from TMZ goaded Bravo's Andy Cohen outside Highline Stages in NYC last night about a gossip site's claims he's engaged to NHL star and LGBT ally Sean Avery.

Replied Cohen:

"Dude, Sean Avery is straight. Do you understand that? So a gay guy and a straight guy should be able to be friends without you asking me if we're engaged, right? Very, very straight. Listen, I'd be happy if Sean and I were bangin ... but it's not [happening]."


The questioning has arisen following the publication of a pictorial narrative pieced together by gossip site The Fame Driven in early September, which posited that close friends Cohen and Avery were secretly engaged.

In related news, Cohen appears with another famous friend to whom he's not engaged, Sarah Jessica Parker, on the forthcoming premiere issue of the new quarterly glossy FourTwoNine, which hits newsstands on October 1st.

The new publication is edited by Kevin Sessums, a good friend of ours here at Towleroad and our former theatre critic.

The launch issue will feature articles by Salman Rushdie, Michael Cunningham, Amy Fine Collins, Carrie Rickey, Brendan Lemon, Steven Thrasher, Henry Alford, Mark Jacobs and Helen Eisenbach, along with three new poems by Mark Doty. Other contributors are photographers Ruven Afanador, Christian Witkin, Torkil Gudnason, and Stewart Shining as well as illustrator Robert Risko. Also appearing in the issue are artist David Hockney and artist and model Casey Legler.

We wish Sessums, who moved out to San Francisco to helm the magazine, the best of luck with it.

  1. Psssh, you say that now but in 4 months when he comes out what then?

    It's perfectly fine to assume or ask if someone is gay, because there isn't anything wrong with being gay.

  6. Don't you love photoshop so extreme that you expect the subject to peel off the mask. Yes you SJP.

  8. BARF. I do not want to hear or think of Andy Cohen along with the word "banging."

  11. If there is a more banal, silly, dunder-pated gay man than Andy Cohen, please notify me immediately.

  12. I think Bravo Andy is quite hot in a salt-n-pepper hairy wonky eye'd way and I would take one of him in a minute over the prissy muscly-muscly hairless "trainer" who did the Wrecking Ball parody and who would most likely trample you should you come between him and his mirror.

  15. I like him. Gawd, but the gays hate other successful gays worse than anything.

  16. So you are saying Sean is banging you?
