Longtime friends and foxy silver-haired hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen — one an Emmy-winning CNN news anchor and one the Emmy-winning face of Bravo's Watch What Happens: Live/executive producer of the Real Housewives series — make a stop at the Aronoff Center during their AC2 tour, subtitled "An Evening with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen: Deep Talk and Shallow Tales."

Hopefully more unscripted than a Housewives episode, with just as much drama and plenty of Cooper's giggle fits, the guys will be dishing as they interview each other onstage in an "unscripted, uncensored and unforgettable night of conversation," according to a press release. "It's a live, interactive look behind the scenes of pop culture and world events."

Journalist Cooper, also a correspondent for CBS' 60 Minutes, has covered news events here and around the world for the past two decades and written the New York Times bestselling memoir Dispatches from the Edge. Fun fact: He's also the son of fashion designer Gloria Vanderbilt (yes, of those Vanderbilts). 

Cohen, who just welcomed his first child via surrogate, is host of the late-night pop culture gossip party Watch What Happens: Live and has also written several of his own bestellers: Most Talkative: Stories from the Frontlines of Pop Culture and The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year. He's also the man to thank for introducing you to household Housewives names like (former) Countess Luann de Lesseps, Erika Jayne, Ramona Singer, Dorit Kemsley and more. 

The show is 8 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Aronoff. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. June 7 via CincinnatiArts.org and AC2live.com.
