St. Louis native Andy Cohen had what many of us would describe as a good week.

To lead off, the Clayton High School grad, celebrated his son Ben’s 3rd birthday, while receiving a special honor himself. Cohen, the host of “Watch What Happens Live,” and producer of the “The Real Housewives” franchise was joined by friends, family, and Ben as he received his Hollywood Walk of Fame star last Friday. And apparently, it was Ben who stole the show.

After sharing his gratitude with colleagues and family, Cohen gave a shout-out to his son.

“It’s your birthday, we’ve got cookies waiting for you man!” Cohen said, thanking guests for being there for the father-son duo.

Then, as Cohen posed with his new plaque, Ben called out from the crowd, “Daddy, don’t touch the star!” Cohen laughed and called back out to his son without even breaking his smile for the cameras. Ben joined his dad, bouncing around the newly unveiled star while his dad tickled his side. The two snuggled in for a photo op, and then the birthday boy hopped away.

Cohen was joined by “Real Housewives” stars Garcelle Beauvais and Lisa Rinna and B.J. Novak, actor and writer on “The Office.”

Singer John Mayer, a good friend of the host, also shared a touching speech. Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez even brought cookies for Ben.

Late last year we told you that Cohen has his own ice cream flavor. In partnership with Clementine’s Naughty and Nice Creamery, sales of “Peppermint Andy,” were to be donated to the local non-profit organization DOORWAYS.

“My Mom has been heavily involved with DOORWAYS since I came out of the closet in 1989, and I love supporting them any chance I can get,” explained Cohen.

Well, people really liked that flavor, because this week it was announced the total amount raised from the Peppermint Andy ice cream fundraiser for DOORWAYS reached $12,498 from sales of the peppermint pints over the holidays.

“Andy Cohen has been a steadfast DOORWAYS supporter and friend for many, many years,” said Opal Jones, president, and CEO of DOORWAYS. “It’s was wonderful to see Clementine’s honor him with this new ice cream. Peppermint is known as both a remedy and a delightful essence—two characteristics among Andy’s many traits. He helps improve the lives of people in need—such as our DOORWAYS clients—through his generous and kind spirit.”

“We are honored to partner with Andy and DOORWAYS on this special flavor,” added Tamara Keefe, CEO and flavor temptress for Clementine’s Creamery. “What a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season with a delicious new ice cream that will also benefit a most worthy organization in our community.”
