Television journalist Anderson Cooper visited his friend Andy Cohen on a bike while he rode past the talk show host's window. Anderson's visit came after Cohen's recovery from COVID-19.


Following Andy Cohen's recovery from the novel coronavirus, he was visited by his friend, Anderson Cooper, from a distance. In an Instagram post by Cohen, Cooper was seen looking up to the camera from a bike across the road. He was dressed in an all-black outfit.

In his caption, Andy explained that the visit through the window was the closest he would be getting to Anderson. He also stated that he took the photo by zooming in on the lens ten times.

The two friends have since joined other Americans who have been self-isolating in their different homes to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, which Cohen was diagnosed with last month.

Last Monday, the "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" host stepped out for the first time since he recovered from the novel coronavirus. 

Andy was seen taking a walk on the streets while wearing a protective face mask and gloves. He was dressed in a long-sleeved sweater with slacks and a yellow and black face mask.


Earlier on Monday, Cohen mentioned that he looked forward to going out for an errand later in the day. He added that he had been indoors during his entire quarantine except for a trip he made to the ATM and pharmacy.

He also explained that his errand would be to gather some supplies which he could use to celebrate the Passover celebration with his family.

Andy began his television career as an intern at "CBS News." He went on to work with the network for another ten years.


The 51-year old broke the news of his diagnosis on March 20. After taking several weeks to recover, he returned to hosting both "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" and his "SiriusXM" radio show from his home.

Cohen also recently spoke about the reunion with his 1-year-old son Benjamin Allen, whom he had to be separated from for 12 days while recovering from the virus.


While sharing an image where he and Benjamin were pictured smiling at each other, he captioned,

"I've hosted reunions for years, but yesterday's was the best one yet."

On the "Today" show, Andy further described it as a delightful experience. Cohen welcomed Allen in 2019 via a surrogate. At his birth, the infant weighed nine lbs., 2 ounces, and was measured as 20 inches long.


Andy began his television career as an intern at "CBS News." He went on to work with the network for another ten years, during which he served as a producer for "The Early Show," "48 Hours," and "CBS This Morning."

In 2000, Cohen joined the Television Network, "Trio." Four years later, he became the Vice President of original programming at "Bravo" after the network purchased " Trio."
