Another day, another report of the coronavirus sashaying its way into the headlines. This time, the COVID-19 bitch has apparently smacked down Andy Cohen, executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, host of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, father of a one-year-old son, and all-round messy queen. Andy shared the news with the world on Instagram.
According to People, 51-year-old Andy is the latest celebrity to test positive––and, as a result, he’s urging everyone to stay indoors. But that’s not all: he also managed to put on his best Garbo pout and serious face and take a selfie.

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.
Andy’s post has not exactly brought in as many floral arrangements and warm wishes as he had probably hoped. Instead, people are taking the opportunity to openly question how and why the rich and famous are able to get their hand$$$$ on coronavirus testing so easily, while regular folk are being told to stay away from hospitals and medical centers and self-isolate if they experience flu-like symptoms.
Watch What Happens Live will be going on an immediate hiatus while Andy recovers. In the meantime, you’ve probably been watching Housewives for a week straight. And, if so, you probably haven’t even put a dent in it. So keep streaming your favorite messy franchise so that Andy’s messy ass can afford his treatment.
