Andy Cohen said he has tested positive for the coronavirus and has decided to postpone the return of “Watch What Happens Live” just hours after announcing plans to shoot an at-home version of the talk show from his New York City apartment.“After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus,” Cohen said in an Instagram post Friday. “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.”The plan for the home-based series, “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home,” was to do interviews with Bravo-lebrities and personal friends via video chat.Also Read: Did Disney's 'Tangled' Predict the Coronavirus Quarantine Back in 2010?Reps for Bravo did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment about the postponement.“Just when we thought our show couldn’t get any more low-tech, we’re all homebound. I’m not sure how this will play out, but I know it’ll be fun,” Cohen said earlier Friday.In a statement to Variety, who broke the news Friday, Cohen added: “Our show is arguably the most lo-tech show in late night in its current form. So the idea of taking it down even further a few notches is just ironic and hilarious. I mean, we’re the show that I still can’t believe gets a live signal out of a very small clubhouse in Soho. So we will now be from my own clubhouse in the West Village. My show has always been something of a little coffee klatch, party-line type show. And this seemed like a very natural extension of not only the show, but obviously the times that we’re in right now.”Sunday night’s show was set to feature guests including Jerry O’Connell, Nene Leakes and Ramona Singer.Also Read: Martin McDonagh's 'Hangmen' With Dan Stevens Will Not Reopen on Broadway (Video)Monday night’s guest was going to be John Mayer, a friend of Cohen’s who also has his own psuedo-talk show called “Current Mood” that airs Sunday nights on Instagram Live. Cohen called Mayer a “real calming influence on people over the last 10 days since people have been self-quarantining.”Tuesday’s guests were set to be Stassi Schroeder, Jax Taylor, and Brittany Cartwright-Taylor from “Vanderpump Rules.”View this post on Instagram After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus.

During a chat with Andy Cohen on Wednesday’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Meghan McCain criticized media coverage of inter-host drama on “The View,” and called Whoopi Goldberg her “anchor” at the show.“It’s really cruel,” she said of the way she sees the media handling her “very small fight” with former co-host Abby Huntsman, who stepped down from the show a few weeks ago. McCain insisted the two are very good friends to this day and that she found it “bizarre” to see a single fight, which she admitted did happen, blown up publicly and “weaponized” by the media.McCain also downplayed the fight with Huntsman, a fellow conservative, and the reports that she was going to leave the show before Huntsman did. McCain assured Cohen if she had plans to leave the ABC show, she wouldn’t be cryptic about it, so Cohen moved on to the next headline-making fight she had on the show: The time Goldberg said to her in December, “Girl, please stop talking.”Also Read: Watch Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain Make Nice After 'The View' Spat: 'Things Get Heated on This Show'“It was rough and I will say that she was having a bad day and we talked about it that night and the next day. It’s live TV and it’s really intense, stressful times for everyone. I adore her. She apologized off-air. She apologized on-air. We all f–k up on the show. It’s live. It’s everyday. I forgive her and I love her,” McCain explained.“If she leaves, I go. Like, Whoopi is the anchor of the show and my life there and she always picks us up if we’re down,” she added.Read original story Meghan McCain Lashes Out at ‘Cruel’ Coverage of ‘The View’ Drama: ‘We All F– Up on the Show’ At TheWrap
Mary Poppins and Martin Scorsese aren't necessarily a natural fit, but nonetheless, Julie Andrews was all set to appear in the Goodfellas director's last movie The Wolf of Wall Street.
Cohen also shared his disappointment about Vanderpump failing to the show up for the 'RHOBH' season nine reunion taping.
The reality star posted the Instagram message following a tense reunion episode.
