During a recent appearance on the Everything Iconic podcast with Danny Pellegrino, Bravo host Andy Cohen revealed how he really felt about Zoom reunions and that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion made him “upset.”
During the podcast, Cohen revealed that he didn’t enjoy doing Zoom reunions on the network. Cohen began hosting Zoom reunion specials during the coronavirus pandemic and has held virtual reunions for shows like Shahs of Sunset, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Below Deck Mediterranean. According to Reality Blurb, Cohen revealed to podcast host Pellegrino, “The Zoom reunions have been especially tiring. That [RHOBH] reunion this year, I was really upset after.”
Cohen continued, “I was doing these Zoom reunions in a room alone and then going to my house alone. It was not satisfying of a decompress.” Though many of the recent virtual reunions have been dramatic and high-tension, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 10 reunion was especially difficult to watch for many fans. Many of the women feuded with each other, especially stars Denise Richards and Lisa Rinna, who have since ended their 20-year friendship.

I was kind of annoyed. I was, of course, the only one on the East Coast,” Cohen said on Radio Andy on July 20, according to Us Weekly. “So we wrapped at about 11:15 or 11:30 on the East Coast and I was, like, done. I came home and poured myself a big cup of tequila, just straight tequila.”
However, not all fun seemed to be lost on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion. On July 17, Cohen posted a photo to Instagram of him posing alongside lifesize cut-outs of the RHOBH cast. In the caption, Cohen wrote, “#RHOBH Reunion Cosplay… I miss them!”
