Bravo viewers always look forward to the Andy Cohen-hosted reunion episodes. There’s just nothing like that level of drama. However, many television productions have halted in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The scheduled reunion for Real Housewives of Atlanta was supposed to happen in March, but it got postponed. Recently, Stassi Schroeder confirmed that the Vanderpump Rules Season 8 reunion was scheduled to film in April, but was also officially postponed. While the viewers can’t help looking forward to those reunions, Andy just had the one reunion he was most excited for (by far): the reunion with his son Benjamin. Following Andy’s positive diagnosis for coronavirus, Andy and Benjamin had been living separately, with Andy watching his son via nanny cam.
Most live talk shows are on a hiatus in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. However, there are some that have just switched things up by filming separately at home via video chat. After a bit of a break, Watch What Happens Live returns tonight. And, yes, Andy Cohen will still be hosting, despite his own Coronavirus diagnosis.
Watch What Happens Live will be taped from the privacy of Andy’s apartment. But he will still have some guests on the episode, also taping remotely from wherever they are quarantining.
Coronavirus does not discriminate. Even the rich and famous can fall victim to the virus. Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen just announced that he tested positive for Coronavirus.
Currently, Vanderpump Rules have been suffering because this entire season has revolved around Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding festivities. We get it: a wedding is a special life milestone. However, pretty much every episode this season has been about the wedding and we still haven’t seen any footage of the actual wedding. Hopefully, we will all be put out of our misery this week. But, something tells me, it will somehow continue into next week’s new episode. Ugh.
Lala Kent’s wedding is coming up in April. Well, hopefully, it is. With the Coronavirus outbreak, many big events have been postponed or canceled. For instance, the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion has been postponed due to Coronavirus. However, Lala thinks she would never get the virus unless God wants to give her “a little publicity for the wedding.” Yes, she actually said that. And, she’s not the only one with Corona-related wedding worries on Vanderpump Rules. Recently, Tom Schwartz expressed concerns about the impact of Coronavirus on Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark’s upcoming wedding in Rome, Italy. It should be noted that their wedding isn’t scheduled until Fall 2020.
Hopefully, all of this Coronavirus madness is resolved way before that. (But, again, we want to emphasize that we understand there are more important things to worry about than weddings and reality TV during this tough time. We are just reporting the news and trying to satiate the craving for reality TV content that our readers may have).
Who would have thought that we’d see the day when Katie Maloney is on better terms with James Kennedy than she is with Kristen Doute. Well, here we are. It’s not quite clear how we got to this point, but it’s happening.
After James body shamed Katie (multiple times) and she got him fired from SUR, these two are actually friends. Wow. Hopefully, we see this on Vanderpump Rules after the never-ending wedddddin’ finally passes.
Despite being one of my favorite Housewives franchises, I have to admit that Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a little lackluster for me this season. Of course, they haven’t even had their big cast trip yet (I don’t even count the snooze fest that was Toronto) but the drama just seems kind of stale. NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore still hate each other, even with NeNe’s
fake attempts to mend fences. Same with Porsha Williams. It looks like those two will finally make amends at some point but is it for real this time? Now I did thoroughly enjoy Kenya bringing a whole marching band to Marlo Hampton’s wig event but that just wasn’t enough to sustain me over the next few episodes. Give me more interrupting marching bands or I don’t want it!
I think part of what is boring me is all the baby and pregnancy stuff. I find them almost as insufferable as weddings. I know, I know, fans love it but I personally think it’s a distraction from the REAL storylines. Those storylines are supposed to be well, the relationships between the women on the show. Sure, their lives are being featured but I personally don’t care to watch Eva Marcille eating ice chips and having false labor pains. Does that make me a bad person? Don’t answer that.
Real Housewives of Atlanta hasn’t shown NeNe Leakes very much this season until recently. Now we have seen her try to make amends with former bestie Cynthia Bailey. Awkward! I wasn’t sure how genuine the emotion was from NeNe. Kenya Moore said that NeNe doesn’t have any friends on RHOA, and only apologized because she had no other choice.
The person that NeNe had the most conflict with this season is, of course, Kenya. Now it looks like Kandi Burruss can add her name to that unfortunate list.
The last time we saw NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak together on Real Housewives of Atlanta, they were battling it out on the Season 10 reunion. Things were so bad that NeNe and Kenya Moore were actually on the same side during that taping.
However, things have changed since then. NeNe and Kim shared that they reconnected during Gregg Leakes‘ cancer battle and that they texted here and there. It seems like these two only get along when they’re not filming, but I am always down for a Housewife comeback. Maybe Kim will show up to an event next season. She always brings the drama. I’m here for it. And so is NeNe.
