Andy Cohen, the openly gay Bravo exec, says the cable network is bi, not gay.

Cohen works behind the cameras at the network in the enviable position of senior VP of original programming and development, but is increasingly being seen in front of the camera. At first hosting the various Real Housewives reunion specials and then as star of his own chat show for the network, Watch What Happens, which takes a revealing look at the stars that populate the Bravo universe.

That would include a bevy of openly gay and gay-friendly celebrities such as gay icon Kathy Griffin, the star of Kathy Griffin's My Life On The D List, and the cuddlesome Tom Colicchio, celebrity chef of Top Chef.

Yet Cohen insists Bravo, which was built on the gay-tag-team makeover series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, is not a gay network.

I'm always saying we're bi, but I think it's kind of how I view myself being gay – it's just one of the things that I am,” Cohen told most likely bi monthy glossy BlackBook. “So Bravo may or may not be gay, but I think there's a lot of other things going on. I think for the gay people on Bravo, it's one of the things that they are – they're not on Bravo because they're gay. The people that are gay on Bravo, like Brad on Rachel Zoe or Jeff on Flipping Out, they're gay but they're also great at what they do and that's why they're on Bravo and that's important.”
