In 2013, Cohen declined to co-host the Miss Universe pageant in Russia due to the country’s stance on anti-gay laws. Previously, he hosted Miss USA 2011, 2012, and 2013 and Miss Universe 2011 and 2012.
In November 2014, Cohen published his second memoir, The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year, inspired by the similarly titled The Andy Warhol Diaries.

Cohen and Anderson Cooper announced that they would be going on a national tour to perform their conversational stage show AC2 beginning in March 2015.
The tour opened in Boston, followed by Miami Beach, Chicago and Atlanta. The idea for the show came about after Cooper interviewed Cohen about his then-latest book, The Andy Cohen Diaries, at an event at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.

On December 31, 2015, Cohen hosted a one-off live edition of Hollywood Game Night (New Year’s Eve Game Night), and co-hosted New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly, for NBC.
