Bravo's Andy Cohen Drops AIDS Bombshell In New Diary Book 'Superficial'

Amanda Katherine

Bravo's Andy Cohen made a very honest admission about his sexual health in his new diary book Superficial. The Watch What Happens Live host opened up about a frightening AIDS test in his past.

"Twenty-five years after I came out of the closet, sitting in a doctor's office waiting for the results of an AIDS test hasn't gotten any easier. How can that be?"

Andy Cohen is currently dating a 28-year-old Brazillian student at Harvard named Clifton Dassuncao.

The Bravo executive wrote that he had practiced safe sex all his life, but he still couldn't shake the "what if" terror he was feeling.

"Every scenario runs through my head and all roads lead to the inevitable moment where everything changes. That didn't happen today, and I breathed yet another sigh of relief."

The What What Happens Live host has supported AIDS research and prevention for a long time now.

"I was a gay 22-year-old taking advantage of everything the city had to offer and I was always terrified. I was really terrified that I was going to get sick and die."

"Gay men everywhere were dying in droves. It seemed like a forgone conclusion. What's different 25 years later is that we have powerful drugs that are keeping people alive, allowing people with HIV to live a relatively normal lifespan. But what hasn't changed is that today, gay men are still disproportionately affected by HIV."

At the beginning of this month, Andy Cohen and Padma Lakshmi spent a glamorous evening with Sir Elton John at his charity gala for AIDS.

According to Bravo, Cohen hosted the Elton John AIDS Foundation's 15th Annual An Enduring Vision Benefit.

Not too much is known about Andy Cohen's current relationship with boyfriend, Clifton Dassuncao. Andy Cohen told ET in an exclusive interview that he had met his current boyfriend while he was writing Superficial.

"This was an exciting, interesting, and different opportunity for me. I love an opportunity, and I took it, and I wrote about it."

Andy Cohen loves a good story, and his new diary book series Superficial: More Adventures from Andy Cohen is full of them. The Bravo host's book is available in stores and online.
