Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Jennifer Aydin just revealed that she has tested positive for coronavirus. She is not the first Bravolebrity to face this struggle. Andy Cohen tested positive, but has recovered and is reunited with his son Ben. Jim Edmonds tested positive for both coronavirus and pneumonia.
She got access to a test through her husband Bill Aydin, who is a plastic surgeon. She opened up about her experience after her social media followers kept asking her why she wasn’t posting as much as she normally did.
On Instagram, Jennifer wrote, “Why I’ve been MIA: I’ve been sick for the past 10 days and Monday is when my test came back positive. But today is the first day that I’m finally starting to feel better.”
In a video that she posted Jennifer said, “I’ve been staying away from the kids. I’ve been quarantined in my room. Bill’s really stepped up the plate. I mean, he’s staying far, far away from me, but he’s helping out with the kids, which I’m grateful for.” She also shared, “Keeping my kids away has been the hardest and I’m grateful that I have no breathing issues.”

The Housewife shared, “My days haven’t been so bad, aside from a lot of fatigue and sleeping. At night is when it’s the worst for me because of the mix of sweating and chills. I’m taking my vitamins and drinking hot liquids. We’ll all get through this. #staypositive #stayinside.”
In her video, Jennifer elaborated on the situation. She told her followers, “My symptoms started last week on Monday, where I felt extreme fatigue, no fever. I was asking Bill to bring home a test for me, but he was reluctant because I didn’t have a fever or a heavy cough.” A couple days later, Bill came through and conducted the test himself.
Jennifer also revealed that she has lost her sense of taste and her sense of smell. She concluded her video by encouraging everyone to stay at home.
