Mazel, Mazel, Mazel! This past Friday, Jewish St. Louis native and Bravo TV star Andy Cohen was inducted into the St. Louis Walk of Fame located in the Loop area of University City along Delmar.

The ceremony honoring Cohen took place outside the Moonrise Hotel where Cohen talked about his years growing up in St. Louis and specifically remembering his time spent on Delmar.

“I grew up coming to the Loop, we went to Street side Records, we went to Vintage Vinyl, we still go to Vintage Vinyl,” Cohen said.

Andy Cohen’s St. Louis Walk of Fame plaque reads:

St. Louis native Andy Cohen, best known as the host and executive producer of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Bravo TV’s live late night talk show, also executive produced “The Real Housewives” franchise and hosted its reunion specials. In his many years running programming at Bravo, he oversaw smash reality hits like Project Runway and Top Chef, for which he won an Emmy. He and CNN’s Anderson Cooper co-hosted the network’s highly-rated New Year’s Eve shows and toured the country together. Andy Cohen created two SiriusXM radio channels, and his sense of humor and refreshingly authentic personality vaulted his multiple books onto the bestseller list.

“We’re thrilled to add the amazing Andy Cohen’s star to the St. Louis Walk of Fame,” said Founder Joe Edwards. “He’s gone on from St. Louis to entertain the entire country and make his hometown proud.”

Cohen’s star will join other notables including musicians Chuck Berry and Scott Joplin, actors Vincent Price and John Goodman, writers Maya Angelou and T.S. Eliot, sports greats Yogi Berra and Lou Brock and a host of others in the arts, science, sports, music and more.
