“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,” the television host wrote.

Cohen’s announcement came just hours after he expressed his intention to continue working from home. He revealed then that he would be filming his show at home and aptly titled it, “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen @ Home.”

He told Variety that he would shoot the show himself in order to continue entertaining viewers who are obligated to stay home due to the threat of the Coronavirus. He intended to interview stars via FaceTime.

Cohen, 51, had been working from home for his SiriusXM radio show in response to the call for social distancing. He even shared photos of his office wear consisting of sweatpants and a t-shirt.

At one point, he showed up to his workspace in just a robe. At another time, he proudly showed off his son, Ben who had begun to take his first steps.
