Andy Cohen to Host 'Watch What Happens Live' from Home despite Coronavirus Diagnosis

Andy Cohen is set to return with an adapted version of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" amid the coronavirus pandemic. Having tested positive himself, Andy will host brand new episodes from his apartment in New York City.

The 51-year-old talk show host first shared news of his diagnosis on March 21 with a post to social media. Alongside a picture of Andy, he wrote that "not feeling great" after days in self-isolation led him to get tested and ultimately to his positive results.

Besides thanking "all the medical professionals," Andy also said that they temporarily put "a pin in" the live streaming of "What What Happens Live @ Home" until he recovered from the disease.

Now, Andy is ready to get his show back up and running. Even though everything will be put together remotely, not much about the show will change.

Show-and-tells, unique games, and nightly surprises will take place as it always had, except for the guests who would be live streaming from their homes.


Returning to television screens on Monday, Andy's celebrity guests for the evening are said to include "Real Housewives" stars Lisa Rinna, and Nene Leakes joined by a superfan of the show, Jerry O'Connell.

Tuesday night will be dedicated to "Vanderpump Rules" stars Brittany Cartwright, Stassi Schroeder, and Jax Taylor, while Andy has a one-on-one with John Mayer reportedly scheduled on Wednesday.

To end the first week of shows, Joe and Melissa Gorga from "Real Housewives," along with Ramona Singer and Kyle Richards from the reality show franchise, will all have a chat with Andy.


Last Wednesday, Stephen Colbert announced his return to CBS with new episodes of his show starting Monday.

"The Late Show" halted production amid the coronavirus outbreak, and joining a growing list of show hosts, Stephen Colbert will be able to stream from home with the help of "amazing work" from his staff.


Keeping the laughter going on Comedy Central, Trevor Noah became the first late-night television show host to return with full new episodes after he rebranded the title "The Daily Social Distancing Show."

Waving the flag for ABC's "The View," Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg started video chats from their homes after the studio shut down filming.

When Whoopi and Joy announced their intention of taking an unspecified amount of time off work due to the coronavirus outbreak, Whoopi made sure her followers understood why she made the choice.

Advocating for social distancing, Whoopi felt it necessary to lead by example, but also because she falls into a more vulnerable age category.
