For Andy Cohen, working at home means something a little different than logging onto WiFi and firing up Zoom for the occasional meeting. The Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen host — who also hosts Radio Andy on SiriusXM — is doing both his shows from home, which means that his West Village Duplex has become a temporary production studio.
Andy gave Bravo Insider an exclusive tour of his temporary setup in the video above, just as his son starting piping up in the background. "I'm in my studio here, where I'm generating a lot of radio and TV content, and my son is screaming downstairs," he says. "Perfect! It's dinnertime, folks, what can I tell you?"
Moving toward his desk, Andy explains that he starts his day using a — well, he's not sure what it's called exactly. Let's just call it a "portable... radio machine." Andy uses the device to connect to a studio in Washington, D.C., and to hear his cohost in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, his producers connect with him via computer chats.
Later in the day, it's time to film WWHL. "I turn on my Cadillac, Seville light, and I fire it up ... I grab my iPhone and shoot some cold opens around my apartment; usually we feature the disco ball." Then, Andy shows off the note-strewn desk where he conducts his interviews — but not wearing his typical suits.
"Usually I'm wearing a sweater and boxer shorts, or a sweater and sweatpants," he says. "So I'm dressed from the top up." He's also got a teeny makeup department: There's a compact of anti-shine on Andy's desk.
"We're just hanging on by Scotch tape, basically," Andy says, shrugging. "That's how we do it!" Watch the video above to get the complete home studio tour. And to see more highlights of Andy's swanky New York home, click here and here.
