Andy Cohen Secretly Engaged To Former NHL Star Sean Avery?
So basically someone close to Sean Avery spilled the business about Andy and Sean's relationship and alluded the two are secretly engaged and spending Labor Day weekend together in the Southamptons. What I want to know is who do you all think is the top and bottom in that relationship.
And I always thought Sean Avery claimed heterosexual and just had gay friends. What do you guys think?
Sean Avery had the worse attitude when he played in the NHL.
I only know Sean Avery bc of DL, he kept claiming he was str8 then DL would show him with purses.
But apparently he was hiding in plain site, I suspect like James Franco.
Uh, he is just a straight bro hanging with his gay bro.
Because he was a big ol' flaming dramaqueen r1
If true, I say good for them both. Sean is a fun guy, love Andy, great couple!
They still won't invite you to the wedding, R5.
Mama Elsa said Andy can't love or something like that.
R3 no straight man takes pics like that with a gay man looking through his sunglasses saying I look best in Sean Averys shades. #GAY
[quote] And I always thought Sean Avery claimed heterosexual and just had gay friends.
It's a slippery slope.
Sean Avery should just twirl out the closet and talk about how gone with the wind fabously gay he is.
Sean Avery interned at Vogue. Of course he's gay!
what straight man would hang out with Andy Cohen of all people?
All of the photos in that linked article are at least 6 months old. Andy's been in Sag Harbor all week and has been seen around town either alone or with Kelly & Mark. While he may have been dating Sean (on the downlow), they are no longer a couple, let alone engaged.
Is Mark fucking Andy on the side?
R13 welcome to datalounge Sean. You can come out the closet, it's ok. The LGBT can defend you against the "internal NHL backlash. You will be fine.
R14, What I heard is that there's no fucking but Kelly is ok with a once in awhile no reciprocation BJ, because it takes some of the strain of having to always empty those nuts off of her.
The Southamptons are my favorite Hamptons.
They're just bros in a bromance having brosex with each other.
If Cohen ever had a lover it would more likely be someone shallow and vacuous. Trust me, I worked with the guy. There is no there there.
The man is vile.
Andy Cohen had started wearing a ring on his hand during that last week before WWHL went on hiaatus. He never mentioned it or explained the significance.
I don't necessarily believe that Sean Avery is the man, but it's possible he's committed to somebody.
Andy Cohen is very private about his OWN relatioships, he never says anything about who he dates, he's just like Anderson before everything came out on him.
I've seen him with that guy a lot or heard that he was with him often so it wouldn't surprise me. If it's true, Avery should just come out and be done with it.
Gross me out the door and down the road to Kmart...
I hope its true. It's good for the gays.
I wouldn't even be surprised if Andy was the top and Sean likes getting his prostates tickled.
I can believe that Avery is gay but I cannot fathom him dating Andy Cohen. Cohen is well connected but so fucking GROSS and beneath Avery who could have any gay man he wanted. Why would he date googly-eyed, pudgy Andy? Makes no sense.
What are Avery's financial prospects, really?
Husband to a wealthy, popular TV personality - who in all likelihood would, or will have no objection to 3-ways, is winning life's lottery.
It's good for "the gays", R27?
Fuck off. Sean Avery is universally despised, he is the lastt NHL player I want to see coming out.
Bring on Sidney Crosby and then we'll talk.
R26: Marry me!
I thought it was common knowledge on this site that Andy and Sean either are or at east were dating? Avery appeared on both Fashion Police and Watch What Happens Live. He seemed to be flirting with Andy the whole time as if they were together.
If Avery is "universally despised" (and in what universe?) why would he be worried about coming out?
R33 Common knowledge they are dating, but not common knowledge they are engaged.
Sean Avery is with Andy for the money. A retired hockey player with no job prospects will run out of money in no time.
It's the same with Anderson and his trashy boyfriend. You don't really think that Ben is with Andy because he's into pasty albinos, do you?
Does Andy wear Spanx on WWHL? He's really fat in those vacation pics. He doesn't look so pudgy on the show.
R36 is a fugly, pathetic troll desperately trying and failing to control her extreme jealousy of AC and Ben, it's not working for you honey.
W&W, R26. Q: Is it sad that I'd love for Anderson Cooper and Andy to be a couple?
Old pics. Andy has a full beard now. Posted on Twitter today.
Anderson says Andy is not his type. I guess they tried to date once in the past.
Anderson likes exotic men, Andy is too white bread for him.
[quote]Does Andy wear Spanx on WWHL? He's really fat in those vacation pics. He doesn't look so pudgy on the show.
Maybe he wears Bing Crosby's girdle - but that's from another thread.
[quote]Does Andy wear Spanx on WWHL? He's really fat in those vacation pics. He doesn't look so pudgy on the show.
He borrowed my special cameras.
Bleeech! Only a fag stag could stomach Andy Cohen. I'm sorry my dears but ALL of us could do better than Andy. No way this guy is gay.
All of us could do better than Andy sans the money and success. Those dollars act like magic mirrors.
Anyway, I'm in the minority but I like Andy.
[r42] are Jewish men white bread?
what's her name [r40]?
I stand corrected. I guess if it's just about the money I could do it -- but only if Cohen has a 'mute' button somewhere.
Jewish men are wry bread!
Once upon a time there was real gossip on DL.
Avery has basically taken over Lipman Advertising. He lives in the advertising/PR world.
So do many gay men.
Deal with it.
Andy's big gut overshadowed anything else the story was trying to tell. He's brave to show that belly in public.
What`s with all this faggotry on this site?
Andy apparently responded on twitter and didn't deny the enagement rumors so whoever said they are not together is wrong. Andy usually uses his twitter to deny a rumor. But this time he seems to be putting it in Sean Avery's lap to come out the closet.
PR....doesn't his show premiere soon in an hour long format?
Andy Cohen's response when asked if he was engaged: "ask @Imseanavery"
Sounds like someone didn't get that proper proposal yet. Andy's looking for his Orlando Cruz facebook proposal moment.
Andy's twitter response seems kind of bitchy -- not the kind of response somebody in love and newly engaged would do -- passing the buck, as it were, to the other person. Feels more like the move of somebody who had been jilted in a relationship.
Andy has been wearing that new ring since the day DOMA was struck down. He was wearing it on his right finger but everyone was speculating it was an engagement ring. If it's true that Sean Avery is in the closet, maybe Andy's just frustrated with that and the delay between getting engaged and announcing it. He's probably the type who'd want to brag to the whole world about his engagement.
Maybe Avery is a cover for some other guy Andy is engaged to.
I've always herd that sean was bi
And how does that work, R60? Who else would C(o)untess Cross-Eyed be betrothed to?
r31 - He might have been hated by hockey fans, but who really cares besides hockey fans? How many other athletes have been so pro-LGBT, particularly from a macho team sport? Fuck Sidney Crosby. He's a total corporate shill. He wouldn't come out about his favourite colour if it wasn't sponsored by Reebok.
(But no way is Avery engaged to AC.)
R62, I don't know, I'm just not sure this is true, but if it is, he was able to keep it private for a fairly long time.
Is Andy Cohen even capable of having a monogamous relationship? He's not like Anderson Cooper who seems to be a one man man.
Andy Cohen is super gross!!! Is this obnoxious phony flaming queen a bottom or top?
He sure doesn't strike me as a top.
Andy is all bottom.
Of course Andy is all bottom...
I'm gay and wouldn't want to hang out with Andy Cohen.
If Avery is gay, he was bearding with a female model some time ago. I think it was Hillary Rhoda. Page 6 had them as an on-again off again couple.
It would be cool if he were gay and came out.
I think Andy would be fine as a friend but sexually I'm not attracted to him. Sometimes he can look handsome but I just never view him in a sexual way.
I just think from the way I've seen Andy and Sean interact on WWHL and from the pics they have taken together, it seems like something is up. It would be so random for them to be simply friends who hang out sometimes.
For what it's worth, Andy told Wendy that he likes to spoon after romance, and he's the outside spoon.
[quote]For what it's worth, Andy told Wendy that he likes to spoon after romance, and he's the outside spoon.
Considering the source, it's not worth anything.
Why would he lie about something like that?
Sean not responding to any of this makes me think more he is gay and engaged to Andy Cohen. I believe Andy is a top though and Sean probably like laying on his back legs spread. Look at the pics Andy appears to be the dominant aggressor in that relationship.
[quote]Why would he lie about something like that?
There are rumors that some insecure bottoms try to make people think they're a macho top, though other bottoms are proud of their abilities. With the social-climbing Cohen, he obviously has a need to push the idea that he's a top.
R63 Good point about Sidney Crosby, I will concede that point. I just find him physically appealing, I agree that he is a corporate shill. He is basically a robot with a nice ass.
Avery may be pro-GLBTQ, but that is his only redeeming quality IMO. He certainly didn't hesitate to use racist slurs on the ice, even as he was calling out homophobia. Ask Georges Laraque (Avery called him a monkey) And yeah Avery denied it, but Laraques played for 10+ years and said he never encountered racism at the professional level, other than the Avery incident. Laraques himself is pro-GLBTQ, vegan and very active in the Green Party.
And yeah, I'm Canadian and I follow hockey. The You Can Play initiative is fairly progressive, considering.
Sean Avery has responded to the question about being engaged to Andy Cohen. He posted #busted along with a picture of he and Andy on Instagram
I hope Sean Avery is not engaged to that fucking Jew named Andy Cohen.
As a minority,these fucking Jews are all over the place!!!
I didn't know Jesse Jackson posted on Datalounge.
The DL has come out with several rumors that turned out to be true. For example the whole story of Cheyenne Jackson tattoos and divorce was on DL first before blogs like Queerty started picking it up.
Maybe Sean Avery is engaged to Andy Cohen. If he wanted to stop the spreading of the story he could have easily said it was a joke.
Sounds like Avery is aware of how ridiculous it is to think he proposed to Cohen and he is secure enough in his sexuality not to give a damn what people think. Besides, Avery is a fine piece of meat and can do so much better than Cohen.
Isn't Andy Cohen pushing 50? Also, has an executive, is it wise for him to walk around shirtless with that body of his? You don't see Rupert Murdoch walking around naked and they are of the same generation.
In a bathing suit rather...not naked. And, they are both hundreds of years old.
Why shouldn't he walk around shirtless at the beach or on vacation? He always appears very secure and happy to me.
He can walk around in a bathing suit, sure. Not sure if it's a wise business decision. He is selling Bravo after all. But, he is interested in being famous, so...
Lots of ageists on here. If it's hot enough people take off their shirts. No one has to cover up so as not to offend your delicate sensibilities. People get older--if they're lucky. No need to hide that fact.
I'm not an ageist. HIs personality though is very immature. If this whole thing is a joke, I will never watch Bravo again, and hope other gay people never follow his shit again too. Also, he had a giant smirk the entire time he did his It Get's Better video.
He always has a smirk on his face. Part of his charm.
What is going on this is becoming confusing. Andy and Sean dancing around the engagement rumor.
Now Andy puts it on his facebook. I think there is some truth to them being a couple. This is like 2 days straight both have addressed this rumor.
The DL does it again!!!
Why do y'all care so much? Avery is the epitome of a douchebag and he always looks like someone just punched him in the face.
What do the people at Queerty have against Andy Cohen? I'm not hip to the news I'm new, but that write-up was so unnecassary. Calling him Ms. Cohen I would expect that from the comment section not the blog author, not good journalism in my opinion.
I love that they mocked gay marriage. "Gay" is hilarious.
R107, the Andy Cohen hatred here on DL is ridiculous.
Of course, DL hates every openly gay person in entertainment.
If/when it turns out that Sean Avery is not gay would this little game he and Cohen are playing be considered making a mockery of gay marriage and of gay people coming out? I've seen some comments from some people, including young gay people, who're genuinely happy that he's 'come out.'
Are Sean and Cohen being very mean spirited by letting this play out or are they doing the right thing by playing along with this rumor?
I don't understand why they can't just say yes or no and be done with it?
If Sean Avery is not gay than the two are assholes, and I will never watch Bravo or support anything Andy Cohen ever again. They would be mocking gay people and mocking gay marriage. But, nobody sees this because well, laughing at gays is so ingrained in American culture - well, any culture really that laughing and shock is a "normal" reaction when it comes to anything "gay".
If Sean Avery is gay, good for him.
I think Sean not denying it after all this makes him gay in my book and the story true. Heres why 1. Sean and Andy have been friends since 2010. I remember when Andy had a blog on bravotv website in 2010 and spoke about his crush on Sean. 2. On the fame driven site they have a pic with Andy Cohen saying he and Sean are celebrating their one year anniversary and that pic was taken in March 2013. Which means they've been friends for three years dating for 1 year. Their dating at the very least.
They are probably just messing with people for attention. It's what famewhores do.
nice detective work,r116.
I live in NYC. Manhattan is a crazy city. Seems as if everyone is bisexual. I asked around and this is what I heard. My NHL buddies tell me that Avery is straight. My producer buddies that work at NBCUniversal tell me that Andy is single and has a bromance with Avery. I'm still shocked that the two are so close because Avery is a complete and total douche. Do I think that they've hooked up before? Probably.Never been in the same room with Avery but have with Andy. The girl is always looking for a guy and dates around but for some reason is single. He is a top but let's be real if the guy had a steady boyfriend he would bottom. He also still goes out for dates with one of his ex-boyfriends. His persona on TV is the same in real life and he is much better looking in person but he is definitely not 5'9. Sorry for the lack of gossip but that's all the info I was given.
I concur with R119. I met Mr. Avery several years ago through a mutual acquaintance, and he was absolutely a douche. Maybe he has matured somewhat since then (who knows), but when I met him he was incredibly arrogant. He thought he was a real wit, too, but his sense of humour was actually quite childish. Don't know if he is gay or bi. He didn't come off as straight to me, but who knows. Also, he isn't as good looking as he appears in pictures. He has a broad, hard body, but his face is flat and covered in scars.
Thank you for the info R119 and R120 this makes Andy Cohen look desperate and pathetic to drag this all out like that if they are not dating, but I'm still inclined to believe something non-heterosexual is going on in their "bromance" it's just something not right in the ice tea.
Bromance with benefits?
Avery is heteroflexible.
If a guy takes another mans dick and puts it in his mouth, butt, ear or anywhere on his body. He's gay! No heteroflexible, bi-curious, bromance etc... Just gay! If another mans erect penis makes another guy erect, their both gay. If Sean Avery's seen Andy Cohen's dick or he's shown Andy Cohen his dick (erect) he's gay. CASE CLOSED!
We will see if Andy tries to prolong this and wear an engagement ring on tonights Watch What Happens Live. That will be the real tell tale.
r125, He had a ring on.....
Anyway according to an article that came out today,a source close to Andy clarifies that the rumors are false and they are just friends so there you have it.Nothing to see here folks!
So that means that Andy really doesn't want to settle down and have a LTR with someone after all.
"Gay" is so shocking and hysterical, so I can see why they did it.
I'm just an asshole, never mind me
Andy organized/hosted a Friends for Benefit gala that was honoring Sarah Jessica Parker and Sean sat at their table with other important people of jessica and Andys so he must be very close to him..
Pics of the event
I was disappointed that he didn't mention the story one way or the other on his show last night. It meant I wasted a horrible 30 minutes of listening to some prostitution whore from New Jersey talking.
Is is possible the show was pre-taped? He didn't take any viewer calls which could be a sign that it wasn't live. But I think he said he would talk calls during the aftershow. I didn't watch it so I don't know if that happened, or if he said anything about the engagement rumor during it.
He's not the type to NOT acknowledge a story like that, so I was surprised that he didn't bring it up in some regard.
And for the record, I'm not one that believes those 2 fools are engaged. I don't have a strong opinion either way on whether Avery's sexuality (nothing he claims would surprise me), but I do believe that his association with Andy Cohen is largely for the attention and the possibility of having a show created for him on Bravo.
His ultimate goal is to get Madonna on his show and be friends with her - he got Oprah, He got Cher, He has Gaga scheduled. Avery gets him an in at Vogue.
The Danielle appearance was lackluster, IMO. The only interesting part was when she confronted Andy and made him uncomfortable. If she knows things spill it or stop hinting/bragging about what you know but won't tell.
Andy Cohen already is friends with Madonna, she was at his and Anderson's birthday party back in May at AC's firehouse.
Sean hasn't tweeted for 4 days...scared?
I watched him on that crappy show the other night ,which I rarely watch because I can't stand him. He was wearing a band on his right hand ,and I noticed fairies these days tend to wear bands in the opposite hand of the traditional left wedding hand. Has anyone notice that? I see many gay men wear bands on their right hands like Andy. Does that mean anything? like two fags are married?
First week of boycotting Andy Cohen after his mocking and laughing at the thought that he and Sean Avery were engaged. Just because this asshole is gay means nothing to me, he mocked gay marriage and gay people and I'm actually better off not watching his shit anymore.
My IQ has jumped 20 points since Bravo has been removed from my channel listing.
LOL @ Andy being
A> a top - he is not, I know guys that have topped him, he likes a well built well hung man.
B> Friends with Madonna. Madonna was at Anderson's B-day, that it happened to be Andy's as well..is not the reason she was there. Madonna is friendly with Anderson, I would not say friends.
C> Andy being anything over 5'5" on a good day. He is short, and it is a sore spot with him. He took great offense to being called a pocket gay once. He had Luis from Million Dollar Listing NY and referenced his size, but when they stood up to do a shotski he was the same size as luis lol. He forgot his lifts that day (yes he wears lifts in his shoes, I know people who do his wardrobe. If he wears a shorter heel, he will put in lifts.)
D>looking for love. That is a crock. He goes through so many of his "bartenders" he is running out of men to get that way. His MO is to meet, models, or dancers or just good looking guys at clubs - and offer for them to be bartenders on his show..the old "i can get you on TV." You notice they have cut WAAAY down on that on his show. I guess the brass caught on to him.
Anderson's bf Benjamin went to Madonna's MDNA movie premiere by himself and AC and Ben have attended her VIP after-concert parties, so they must be VERY friendly with her.

You type like a 90-year-old.
R141, nah - he types like a "bro" on who posts on Datalounge.
BLIND ITEM ...
What openly gay TV host was furious when a staffer of his spilled the beans that he got engaged to his younger boyfriend, a not-so-closeted athlete on Fire Island during Pride Week?
He's doing massive damage control, even telling his boyfriend to beard up with a model for the Fashion Week red carpets and after parties, even though the engaged couple got into a huge fight at one after party. The athlete plans on coming out soon anyway. Andy Cohen/Sean Avery
Please, this is just an easy way for the blog to get more traffic.
R145,so I guessed its not true if it came from there.

If true, all the more reason to boycott Andy Cohen and Bravo. What a homophobic piece of shit. Beard up? Fuck those assholes.
What? Cross-eyes is furious because he's gotten more publicity in the past month than his entire career?
I don't think so. He lives for validation.
You do wonder if it's true. I know that on Twitter a lot of the people posting now thinks Sean Avery is gay and Sean Avery has done very little to correct that impression. And weren't they right about Cheyenne Jackson.
Now it's on Radar Online with Andy's father denying it.
After watching NeNe Leakes, Tamra Barney, Kim Zolciak and more of his employees tie the knot on-screen, could Andy Cohen be the next Bravo-lebrity to walk down the aisle?
Rumors have been running wild all week ever since an obscure gossip site posted a report claiming the Watch What Happens Live host was set to wed ex-NHL hockey player Sean Avery.
Cohen and Avery were coy on Twitter, refusing to confirm or deny the speculation in jokey tweets. But now, Andy’s dad, Louis Cohen, is speaking out to RadarOnline.com to put a stop to the speculation.
“That is not accurate information,” Louis tells Radar exclusively. “He is not engaged.”
PHOTOS: Couples We’d Like To See!
Louis and his wife Evelyn, Andy’s mom, just returned to their Missouri home on Tuesday from a trip to New York City to visit Andy and Louis says his son addressed the gossip during their stay.
“Andy told me all these rumors are floating around, but he said it’s not true,” Louis insists.
Although, he does admit that his son’s been known to be good at keeping big secrets.
“Unless he’s keeping something from me,” Louis says. “But there really is no validity to [engagement] rumors.”
PHOTOS: Stars Who Have Come Out As Gay
In fact, Louis insists, Andy and Sean are nothing more than friends. Asked if they were dating, he said, “That’s not necessarily true either. I’ve never even met Sean. Andy’s not dating anyone, to my knowledge. He’s just so busy.”
Nevertheless, Louis says that he can’t wait for Andy to be the star of his own Bravo wedding special.
“For his own benefit, I’d really like to see him end up with somebody,” Louis says. “But that’s not really my call!”
Now I'm really starting to think there's something to this.
Sean was in the mens room kneeling by the urinals with his mouth open. Men were pissing in his mouth and he swallowed it all.
I don't think I've ever seen a TV executive desire fame as much as this guy. I still can't believe he's a tv executive.
Interesting. Sean Avery and Variety just started following thefamedriven blog on twitter.....they were responsible for bringing the Andy n Sean engagement to the public...hmmmmm
Sean Avery's hair plugs...obvious or not? He shaved his head and you could see where they took the hair follicles to transplant them to the stop of his head. He looked ridiculous.
I think they are obvious and unnatural as is all hair plugs.
His hairline is not natural. I would say obvious too.
He was really thinning out, especially at the front and the hairline a few years back and now all of a sudden he has hair.
It's not a very good plug job. Natural looking hair plugs are difficult to achieve. It doesn't matter how much you spend or who does it.
Andy denied it last week on his @askandy web series, he denied it on his WWHL show a tew days ago and now his's doing th same on TMZ. His answers are basically the same that Sean is straight and that's about it.
When they get caught kissing or holding hands there's going to be a lot off egg their faces. Unless they broke up because of Sean isn't ready to come out.
Sean Avery posted a picture of he and Hillary Rhoda (or whatever) on Instagram.
His hair plugs looked awesome. Do you think Andy has accidently ripped out Sean's hair plugs during sex? I wonder, those things are delicate.
I don't get the Blind item..why would an openly gay men want to closet his boyfriend? Sean is already retired from hockey so what's the purpose on hiding?
IF there was an engagement, you can bet Sean Avery called it off as soon as Shorty started leaking it to every news maven in NYC. Now the creep is pretending a member of his staff leaked the news. He's the biggest phoney in the business.
That's what they get for joking about gay marriage...
Sean Avery has extreme gay face, how on earth do you people believe he's straight?
Everything about this man is a lie...his hair, his sexuality, etc.
R165 you forgot no base in his voice either.
He denied it on the Wendy Williams show with same "he's straight" line this is his 5th time he has done this...
He had Steve Grand on his show as a bartender recently. I wonder if he fucked him like he does with most of his bartenders.
R168, he has sex with his bartenders on his show?!! EWWWWW, those bartenders are repulsive to have sex with Andy!!! YUCK!
Did any of you see an old movie called Magic?
When he moves and talks, Cohen reminds me of some sort of malevolent puppet, or Chucky doll.
No base in his voice?
If you see a hot guy on his show as a bartender - who is an unknown or s semi known then yeah Andy has sex with them. He has a few bartenders from gay bars he promotes once in a while - and uses the same staple of male models to do "slutty abe lincoln" or "slutty sigmond freud"
It's nice for a straight guy like Sean to have pics of 2 guys kissing on his wall.
R167 that's because this is the one time Andy has been talked or noticed in the media regarding himself and not just associated with the Housewives franchise or BRAVO's network. That is why he keeps bringing it up. He likes the attention aside from the normal questions he gets about BRAVO shows and housewives.
