TV presenter Andy Cohen has joined a growing group of celebrities who have tested positive for the coronavirus. The 51-year-old owner of the nocturnal Bravo Watch show, which will be broadcast live on Instagram and Twitter Friday afternoon, said he had also tested positive and would not broadcast the show from home as planned.
After a few days of self quarantine and a bad feeling, I tested positive for the coronavirus. Even though I feel like I can get everything out of the house to do the #WWHL, we always put a pin in it so I can concentrate on my recovery. I want to thank all the health workers who work tirelessly for all of us and encourage everyone to stay at home and take care of themselves, Cohen wrote about Instagram.
He had already twittered that his show would be aired again this weekend with episodes from his homeland. He tweeted: #WWHL is back on Sunday with special episodes @ home! NeLeakes, Kramonasinger and Mr. JerryOC are joining me in a video chat! Tell me Q is for her now!
