Whether it’s playing referee to the Real Houswives’ drama or knocking back cocktails with his Watch What Happens Live guests, Andy Cohen has a knack for knowing just what to say or ask to make for an interesting televised moment. “He’s a pop culture enthusiast and has been from day one,” pal Anderson Cooper tells EW of Cohen. “If you read his letters from camp when he was a kid, they’re all about Grease and Princess Di and Susan Lucci.” 

Speaking of the soap opera queen, Lucci is featured in one of Cohen’s all-time favorite moments to watch on YouTube. Here are his other must-watch clips:
