After announcing last month that The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 reunion had been postponed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Andy Cohen confirmed that this season's reunion will move forward and be filmed virtually.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Andy kicked off his SiriusXM show Andy Cohen Live on Monday, April 6 by setting the record straight on rumors about the reunion that circulated over the weekend following an Instagram Live with Kandi Burruss. "We are going to be shooting the Housewives of Atlanta Reunion virtually," Andy confirmed. "This is obviously not how we prefer to do it, but life is not how we prefer it right now."

Andy noted that although he loves going down to Georgia to film the RHOA reunions, that is not possible during the current coronavirus outbreak. "We want to be in the same room, but we cannot risk the health and safety of the Housewives or the incredible crew in Georgia," he said. "[RHOA] is regarded by many as the Super Bowl of reunion shows, and it is truly one of my favorite reunions to shoot, I look forward to it, and the fact of the matter is it's either we do it this way or there's no Super Bowl this year."

He also explained why waiting until they can safely film the reunion in person isn't a viable option. "If we wait for this pandemic to be over for when we all are in the same room, it's gonna delay everything," Andy said. "We need to move forward, we need to live in reality right now, and the reality is if we're going to do this, we're going to do this right now."

Andy added, "We're obviously wrapped on this season, and we want to reset the table so that when we can, we want to start shooting next season."
