Andy Cohen Will Be Your “Quintessential Daddy”


I didn’t know that I was the quintessential daddy. I will take that as an absolute compliment. I feel great. I will be your daddy, whoever wants me to be their daddy.

Andy Cohen talked about embracing his newfound daddy-dom at SXSW.

Listen to the rest of the interview and to what the Bravo exec-turned-host had to say about Lady Gaga’s forthcoming music video with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and his new TV production company.

    You forgot wonky-eyed.

    Wonky-eyed daddy.

    Is a daddy allowed to have gayface?

  • viveutvivas

    Hmm, he’s too much of a people-pleaser to be a convincing daddy.

    I didn’t realize that a “Daddy” spends his days liking the feet of the Real Housewives.

  • QJ201

    bottom daddy, maybe

  • dougmc92

    yep- agree with all above- he’s hairy and beefy- but not what I thi nk of personality wise when I think Daddy!

  • NG22

    @QJ201: Actually, Andy said on Howard Stern’s show that he’s a top.

  • TerrenM

    @NG22: That makes it true…

  • mrsbuela

    He’s a bottom feeder, so guess that counts as being a “top”, but seriously, a Daddy????

  • balehead

    He wishes….just another delusional queen….

  • balehead

    Way too gay-faced to ever be a Daddy….

  • Pistolo

    I love Andy Cohen but I heard his interview and I do not like him falling into Gaga’s trap. Gaga is a user. And isn’t he a huge, huge, huge Madonna fan? Anyways, he’s dead sexy, what I wouldn’t give for one night.

    Please post on here more often. I think that this site is sadly lacking in comments from bitchy drag queens. :)

  • Fang

    I think he’s great! Really sexy, super fun personality…the nasty comments are definitely not warranted. I’d let him be my daddy!

    The “Daddy” thing freaks me out, and makes me think you guys need therapy. Maybe I was lucky. I had a real daddy. The guy who screwed my mom and made me. The guy who taught me to throw a ball and to behave well. I love masculine men, and I love sex, but I don’t need my “daddy”. And it’s creepy. Do straight guys say that they want to screw their mommies?

  • AnitaMann

    @Fitz: Actually, they do. Many straight men call their women “mommy” or some version. If you’re going to be a troll, at least have your facts correct. Jesus.

    It is way more complicated than that. I had “Daddy” issues growing up. My dad was very supportive of me when I came out, but my dad was not the touchy feel affectionate type. I know he loved me but he never played ball with me and never hugged me or told me he loved me. I know he did, but he expressed it through material possessions. I never wanted for anything and was spoiled beyond belief, but that closeness never existed until I got older and I definitely think that had a lot to do with the fact that when I was in college and into my 20s a lot of the men I was romatically involved with were much older than me. I wasn’t thinking of my father when I was with them, but there was definitely a psychological component to why I was attracted to older men. Also, I was always very mature for my age and guys my age in college and in my 20s lacked substance and were not as cerebral as I needed them to be. I was very attracted to a nice seasoned, worldly man who had LIVED and could teach me some “thangs”.

    Some guys may need therapy for it because it follows them through life. My partner now is a few years younger than I and while I still am attracted to older men, I don’t consider myself to still have “daddy” issues, particularly given the fact that my father and I are closer and I have told him how his lack of affection affected me in my late teens and through my 20s. Oh if you could have seen the look on my father’s face when I was explaining “daddy” issues to him. He looked so confused lol.

    @Mdterp01: Thank you for a thoughtful reply. It seems like what you have been through is very different than what I was sort of reacting to– liking older men, even being aware of “daddy issues” is one thing. (my own husband of 30 years is 5 older than me)..I just don’t like the whole “Whose your daddy” kind of thing. It’s yucky to me. We all get a range of things that we want and need in our relationships– both our sexual and non sexual relationships. I see phrases like “hot mamma”, but somehow it feels different than “I’ll be your daddy, boy”. And yes– in some cultures, including 1/2 of my own, mom’s get called “mom” or “Mamma” by their husbands, and the other way around.. but it’s about the familial role, not about a sexual one. Perhaps you could have taped that convo with father, and played it for me. :)

  • viveutvivas

    @Fitz, “daddy” is just shorthand for a guy with a certain look. You can date a “daddy” or DILF who is younger than you.

    Straight guys are majorly into “cougars” and MILFs, by the way.

    Ok I think I understand what you mean. I definitely was not into the whole “yes daddy, give it to me daddy, seed me daddy” thing when I was having sex with these older men. To each his own when it comes to sexual behaviors. We all have fetishes and things that get us off, but the last thing I want to think about while I’m getting my freak on is my father, and I can’t imagine how I would not think about him if I’m all “daddy this and daddy that” in bed with another man.

    So yeah that is just not my cup of tea.

  • Desert Boy

    Pass. In any case, Andy Cohen screams “bottom”. Daddy? More like Mommy.
