Currently, we are in the midst of the Zoom era in reality television. TV shows are employing do-it-yourself confessional shoots (with terrible audio quality), video chat interviews, after shows that are filmed from home. It’s the new normal, but, apparently, the Real Housewives of New York cast is going to film the upcoming reunion in person.
Reunion host Andy Cohen does live in New York, so that’s not exactly surprising, but how is this going to work. Are they going to yell at each other through face masks? Will there be separate seating for each person (six feet apart) instead of the usual reunion couches? What about the cast members who have been traveling and catching flack for their (perceived) lack of precaution? Are they going to quarantine before the taping and get fresh corona tests? There are so many relevant questions to ask in this new era.
Page Six reported that the cast will get together next week to film the reunion in Long Island, New York. Of course, Andy will be in attendance. But, it’s unclear which cast members will be there. Friend of the Housewives Elyse Slaine recently confirmed that she won’t be in attendance. Tinsley Mortimer left the show in the middle of the season to live in Chicago with her man. Will she fly in for the taping? Or will she video chat in from Scott Kluth’s high rise apartment? Will she even appear at all?

Inside sources said the production team is still working on the logistics of the reunion taping, but they will plan to follow CDC guidelines, obviously. This includes utilizing a smaller crew and wearing face masks.
