In hosting an interview with his parents on Sunday, National Coming Out Day, Andy Cohen discussed how he came out to them.

Cohen, who is best known for hosting Bravo's nightly talk show Watch What Happens: Live, spoke with his parents on his exclusive SiriusXM radio channel, Radio Andy.

Ev Cohen said that she suspected her son was gay when she saw him “prancing around” in a high school musical and later that day found gay porn magazines stashed under his bed.

Before her son left for college, she confronted him about a letter she found in which he wrote to a friend about his struggle to come out.

“And then we had that very awkward dinner,” Andy recalled.

Ev said that she asked her son if he had something he wanted to tell her, and he answered that she already knew. But she told him that he had to say it.

“Why did you want me to say it to you, instead of just having it being inferred?”

“Because that made it real,” Ev answered, adding that she told him at the time that she “never would have liked his wife anyway.”

Andy's father, Lou Cohen, responded to his son's coming out by reassuring him that he loved him.
