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.”
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.”
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!”
