Since revealing he had coronavirus (COVID-19) last month, Andy Cohen has been in recovery mode in his Manhattan home. The Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host recently chatted with The Hollywood Reporter, revealing what life — and work — is like from inside his gorgeous West Village townhouse.
Like most people who are social distancing at the moment, the hardest part for Andy was having his life come to a complete halt. “I respond to a busy schedule and having a lot of work, so being laid up in my bed for two weeks was a new experience,” he said. Now that he’s recovered from the disease, Andy said the bright side is getting in a whole lot more time with his son, Benjamin. “I've really responded well to my office becoming a home studio,” he said. “I get to wake up with my son in the morning. I do radio for a couple hours, I take a break, I focus on Watch What Happens Live and then I'm with my son for the rest of the day.”
While Andy is loving filming from home, his office does lack some of the conveniences offered in a studio. “Anderson Cooper was asking me, ‘How are you finding doing your show from home?’ And I said, ‘You know, it's challenging. I have no prompter!’” Andy said.
As for food, Andy admitted he’s been getting most of his meals from a catering place in his neighborhood, but he also gave his favorite restaurant a shout-out. “I live right by Corner Bistro, which has the best burger in the city,” he said, adding, “I'd suggest anyone get on their bike and go down there because they're doing carryout.”
So, is his home studio going to be a permanent thing once this pandemic has blown over? Not a chance, according to Andy.
“I want to go dancing, eat at Via Carota and get back to filming in my studio,” he said. “I love my clubhouse, I love my team and I love the audience that comes to the show.”
