His net worth was probably also elevated during his association with Cohen, who has an estimated net worth in $15 million. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
While little is known about Clifton’s childhood and his inspiration to pursue career in academics, it is known that he grew up in Queens, New York City, of at least part-Brazilian descent, though no details about his parents or family have been shared. He attended the prestigious Jesuit Loyola School, where he became a part of the basketball team. He also played soccer and was involved in track and field too.
Clifton showcased his prowess in academics, and in addition to studies, was a member of the science and math clubs. After matriculating, he studied environmental engineering with a minor in math for his bachelor’s degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2009. Before continuing his studies, Clifton worked as an analyst at the consulting service firm Cadman, then went on to study for a master’s degree in environmental health at Harvard University, and would later continue on to study for his doctorate, while working for which he was also a researcher at the university.
Relationship with Andy Cohen
Andy is best known for being the host of the Bravo series “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen”; he was the first openly gay host of an American late-night talk show. Prior to his stint as a host, he was also the head of production and development at Bravo for over a decade, but has since left his post, although still serves as an executive producer of the “Real Housewives” franchise. He’s also appeared in other popular television series, including “Love Connection”, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”, and “Riverdale”. He is now the co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve Coverage alongside Anderson Cooper.
Cohen had been dating Danssuncao for a couple of years before their relationship was made public by the paparazzi. The two had initially wanted their relationship to be private, but the media eventually caught up to them – they were seen together in numerous luxurious vacations in various hotspots around the world, including being spotted in the Caribbean and at St. Barts, and were often together at the beachside. Both men have dogs that also apparently got along well, and Cohen’s co-host Cooper also got along well with Dassuncao. He was also featured during a “Santa in Speedos” run event in which participants only ran in Speedos and a santa hat.
In early 2018, Cohen confirmed through Entertainment Tonight that he was single again. The reason for the split was not disclosed, continuing the couple’s desire to keep their relationship away from the cameras. However, he then revealed more about their relationship, stating that they had met during the opening night of the AC2 Tour, and were first seen together on the $150 million yacht Eos by Barry Diller as they headed to two Caribbean vacations for three months.
Cohen has written about Clifton in his memoir entitled “Superficial: More Adventures From the Andy Cohen Diaries”. Cohen later stated that his ideal partner would be someone who’s very independent and someone who’s maybe never seen “The Real Housewives”. Clifton has been known to be friends with several of Cohen’s famous friends, including Kelly Ripa, Mark Consuelos, Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg. They had a huge age gap of 20 years, but Andy had actually considered starting a family with Clifton due to how well they got along, which all came to nothing as they broke up.
Is Clifton Dassuncao on Social Media?
One of the reasons there is very little information on Dassuncao is due to the lack of any social media accounts online – he does not have any accounts associated with Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The only profile of him available is through Harvard’s online website, which states that he is a postdoctoral fellow associated with the Harvard School of Public Health and the School in Engineering and Applied Sciences. His ex-boyfriend on the other hand remains active in the three major social media websites as is typical with television personalities. The two seem to have moved past their relationship, and are focusing on other endeavors.
