Happy Birthday to Andy Cohen!

The well-known "Real Housewives" producer and host of "Watch What Happens Live" host turned 52 on Tuesday, and although he is likely working on this celebratory day, fans wouldn't be shocked to see him living it up at a later date. After all, he can definitely afford to.

According to E! News, Andy rakes in a cool $2 million a year just as a host for Bravo's "WWHL." That's not including his credits as a producer, radio host, blogger, and more. So how much is the birthday boy really worth? That would be a whopping $50 million, per Celebrity Net Worth's calculations. Here's how he earned it.

There is no doubt that Cohen is rolling in the dough, and based on Forbes' account, it was all well earned. He could even be considered one definition of Drake's song "Started From The Bottom."

Starting his career out as an intern, he worked his way up the corporate ladder until landing a producer role at Bravo. He would eventually go on to become an executive producer for "The Real Housewives" franchise, which is what helped him to gain notoriety among the masses. This is also likely a nice source of income for the father of one, especially when considering how much the talent was paid for the show.

Vicki Gunvalson of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" dished on an episode of her podcast, "Whoop It Up With Vicki" that she was very well-paid for her role as a full-time housewife.

"When I finished the 14th season I was in a seven-figure income," she said. A salary which paled in comparison to Season 1, when she was unpaid, and her Season 2 salary of just $35,000.

From there he has expanded his empire with his own production company, Most Talkative, his own channel on SiriusXM called Radio Andy, and has even written a few books, "Most Talkative," "The Andy Cohen Diaries" and "Superficial." He'll launch his own imprint under publishing house Henry Holt later this year for nonfiction books, including Mariah Carey's forthcoming memoir.
