A fantastic mix of wit, warmth, charm and smarts, she had me from the first moment we met, and I’ve been a fan ever since!”

“Andrea’s story is a journey toward self-empowerment and healing. Live Your Playlist is funny, revealing, and poignant. Her writing style is distinctive, her words are witty, and I believe in her heartfelt message.”


Olympic Gold Medalist & New York Times Bestselling Author

“Andrea’s “Playlist” is music to my ears!  I have trudged through this business-of-show myself and I know that, at times, it can be as disenchanting as it is empowering to us girls.  No matter what genre of shit life throws at you, she shows you the path to help you boogie your way out of it.  Andrea polishes her vulnerability like a pair of red patent leather dancing shoes so that we, her new friends, can find our own groove.  I am proud to call her my DJ!”


Host of "Bravo After Hours," Author of Everybody Curses, Celebrity Apprentice Contestant

“Andrea is a blast to watch on TV! Always fun and engaging with her guests and a very cool person to boot!”
