Andy Cohen recently opened up about his experience shooting scenes of the "Real Housewives of New York City" show amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Andy Cohen just revealed some of the challenges of filming the "Real Housewives of New York City" amid the novel coronavirus pandemic ravaging the country.

Since the pandemic took hold across the states, filming has gotten more difficult as the rules and regulations regarding social distancing always have to be considered. As reality TV enthusiasts are aware, the recent reunions hosted for the different "Real Housewives" shows have been unusual at best.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing regulations left Cohen with no choice but to virtually host the unique segments from the safety of his home for months, making it impossible to meet the show's stars in person. 

However, he finally got to see some of them in the flesh at the beginning of August at the recent "Real Housewives of New York City" reunion. Cohen had this to say about the reunion:

"It was great! I mean, it was really odd on one level, but it was also amazing to be doing it and in person..."


The famous host added that the experience was quite dramatic and exciting and that he had never been happier to wear a suit. 

Meanwhile, "The Real Housewives of New York City" (RHONY) season 12 is wrapping up, and Cohen is excited  about what season 13 will bring. 

Luann de Lesseps also gave the impression that the show may be moving in a never-before-seen direction.

In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Cohen revealed that the next season is already in the works, and there's a lot planned for the show. 

Cohen's statement came shortly after RHONY star Leah McSweeney requested that more diversity be featured on the critically acclaimed TV show. 


She stated that she would like to see more diversity not only concerning race but also when it comes to what a person's interests are or where a person lives. 

Earlier this month, another RHONY cast member, Luann de Lesseps, also gave the impression that the show may be moving in a never-before-seen direction with the addition of a few new housewives. 

Cohen first announced that the "Real Housewives of New York City" season 12 reunion would be filmed in person back in July over his radio channel. 

By all accounts, it was a successful endeavor making it the first reunion filmed in person, for the year 2020.
