In addition to all of its other consequences, coronavirus has also derailed some of our favorite reality TV shows. Yes, we are all well-aware that this isn’t the most critical result of the virus, but this is a reality TV website, after all. Additionally, there are many people whose livelihoods depend on filming those shows. There are lots of crew members, hair and makeup artists, the restaurants that cater events. And, of course, there are the viewers who just want to watch their favorite (and least favorite) cast members in action.
In March, Andy Cohen confirmed that the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 reunion was postponed due to coronavirus concerns. He has emphasized many times over that it was “postponed,” not canceled. After that, Andy tested positive for coronavirus. Understandably, he took some time to rest and recuperate. Additionally, Andy said that it just wouldn’t be the same to film the show via video chat. However, this pandemic is still happening. Businesses are shut down. People are isolated at home. We don’t truly know how long this will last. Could it be time to switch up the format and just give in to the video chat? Apparently, we will be getting the RHOA reunion sooner rather than later.
Page Six reported that Kandi Burruss spilled some RHOA reunion scoop on a recent Instagram Live session. Apparently, Kandi shared, “They let us know the other day that we are going to be … we’re going to have to do, I guess, an online type of reunion situation.”
She also dished on the cast group chat. She reportedly said, “Some of the girls was going back and forth, you would’ve thought it had been a reunion on the text messages. I said, ‘damn! Can ya’ll save all this for the actual reunion? We don’t get paid for your text messages to be all out of pocket,’ you know what I mean? It’s a mess!” Oh, Kandi, always thinking about her coins.

In her Instagram Live session last night (Yes, I actually watched. It’s quarantine. Let me live), NeNe Leakes claimed that she had no idea about the online reunion when a fan asked her about it.
Was she being coy? Did she just not read her emails (i.e. the likely scenario)? Or is Kandi’s information false?

We will find out for sure soon enough.
