Andy went on Instagram Live on Sunday, March 15 to chat one on one with his followers. The WWHL host accepted Instagram Live requests from people all over the United States, from California to Texas to Connecticut to Virginia — and even someone living in London, England — to check in on how they're doing during the coronavirus outbreak, as well as to just chat about their lives.
One new mom introduced Andy to his son Ben's "future best friend." Another fan was so excited to talk to Andy, she exclaimed, "This made my whole night!" One couple even called in from their wedding night in Palm Springs.
Andy also caught up with a couple of familiar faces: Brittany Cartwright and Kristen Doute. The Vanderpump Rules ladies were both hanging out at Brittany and Jax Taylor's Los Angeles home and (what else?) doing some shots to pass the time. They all expressed how sad they were that they wouldn't be seeing each other in New York City this week while production on WWHL is suspended.
This Instagram Live sesh was as much a bright spot in Andy's day as it was for his followers. "I will do another one of these sometime soon. That was a super fun hangout," Andy said as he ended the Instagram Live. "I really feel like I'm in a better mood than when I started."
Earlier in the day, Andy shared an update with his Instagram followers about how he's holding up amid the coronavirus outbreak. "I hope you're doing well. We are home hunkered down, taking this all seriously, as you should. No visitors here," Andy said in a video in his Instagram Story. "Check in with anyone you know that is elderly or might need some food and see that they have what they need. We've all got to take care of each other, especially the elderly."
WWHL announced on Friday, March 13 that it would be suspending production with "no new episodes for the time being."
"As a precautionary measure, starting Friday, March 13, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen will suspend production," the late night talk show shared in a message to its viewers on social media last week. "With the exception of an already recorded episode airing on 3/19, there will be no new episodes for the time being. The situation is being monitored and we will notify our audience when we resume live production."
However, Andy's SiriusXM radio show, Andy Cohen Live, went ahead as scheduled on Monday, March 16, with the host broadcasting from his NYC home.
