After testing positive for the virus at the center of an ongoing global pandemic a few weeks ago, Andy Cohen is back in action! The most important thing: reuniting with his son.
On March 20, Cohen, the mega-producer behind popular Real Housewives franchise, announced to his followers and the world that he indeed was one of many to test positive for the virus.
"After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive," he wrote to Instagram. "As much as I felt like I could push through whatever I was feeling to do #WWHL from home, we’re putting a pin in that for now so I can focus on getting better. I want to thank all the medical professionals who are working tirelessly for all of us, and urge everybody to stay home and take care of themselves."
And quarantine he did: Cohen took a break from even Instagram as he seemingly imposed a digital quarantine on himself as well. But only days ago, he made his return.
"Happy to report I'm feeling better and am returning to [Radio Andy on Sirius XM] this morning, and will try to end your day with a smile when we begin [email protected] tonight featuring [Nene Leakes, Lisa Rinna, and Jerry O'Connell,]" he wrote in a new post. And though getting back together with his celebrity friends was probably a welcome reprieve from solitude, there was one reunion that was more sentimental than them all.
"I've hosted reunions for years, but yesterday's was the best one yet," he wrote as a caption to a photo featuring himself and his son Benjamin. The pair had been separated in order to ensure that the child didn't contract the virus as well. Benjamin is just over a year old.
Yes, that's a tear.
With everything settled, Watch What Happens Live @ Home, the previously announced quarantine iteration of Cohen's popular talk show is officially back in business. Tonight, the show will host John Mayer and later in the week fans can expect Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer, and Melissa and Joe Gorga.
