After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus. 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. I want to thank all the medical professionals who are working tirelessly for all of us, and urge everybody to stay home and take care of themselves.
As NewNowNext reported last week, Cohen tested positive for COVID-19 after “a few days of self-quarantining and not feeling great.” The 51-year-old Bravo mogul took to Instagram on March 20 to share his diagnosis and announce a temporary pause on new WWHL episodes.
He’s not the only New York-based celebrity to fall ill amid the pandemic. Last week COVID-19 claimed the lives of accomplished playwright Terrence McNally and beloved drag performer Nashom Wooden, a.k.a. Mona Foot.
Luckily, Cohen is officially on the mend—and ready to bring back WWHL from his NYC apartment. New episodes of his fan-favorite late-night chatfest will begin airing this Monday, March 30 at 11pm ET.
The quarantine-friendly updated format will include virtual appearances from “Bravolebrity and celebrity guests,” at-home show-and-tells, and other surprises.
Tonight’s guests are Nene Leakes, Lisa Rinna, and Jerry O’Connell, all of whom will call in via video chats. Other celebs slated to appear this week include Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, Jax Taylor, John Mayer, Kyle Richards, Ramona Singer, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga.
“Happy to report I’m feeling better and am returning to @radioandysxm this morning, and will try to end your day with a smile when we begin WWHL@Home tonight,” Cohen wrote on Instagram Monday. “Thank you to everyone on the front lines of COVID-19!”
