Andy Cohen really wants to be able to see his son again! The Watch What Happens Live host appeared on a radio interview for SiriusXM on Tuesday, where he opened up about his life since finding out he was positive for COVID-19, otherwise known as coronavirus.
Cohen first shared the news with fans on Saturday via his Instagram, saying that his diagnosis has led to putting plans to film an at-home version of Watch What Happens Live on pause. "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," Cohen admitted in the post.

After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus. 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.
Cohen calls not being able to see son "the very worst part"
Cohen's radio interview with SiriusXM allowed him to openly talk about how he's been handling his positive COVID-19 diagnosis. As Entertainment Tonight reports, when the interviewer asked him about his son, 13-month-old Benjamin, Cohen revealed a sad piece of information. He shared that since testing positive for the virus, he has only been able to watch Benjamin from a remote distance through video screens, instead of getting to spend time with his son in person.
"I’ll tell you what I know from the nanny cam and from video because I can’t see him, which is the very worst part," Cohen said. "But he's great and his [nanny] tested negative".
Cohen talks loss of appetite, says he "can't wait to eat pizza"
Cohen also mentioned during the interview that one of the symptoms he's been experiencing as a result of his positive diagnosis for COVID-19 is a loss of appetite. He shared with the host how finding himself unable to eat much has affected his current perception of his body image... and shared the food he can't wait to eat when he's healthy again!
"Two days ago, before I went to bed, I took a shower and I was walking into the shower and I looked at myself and said, ‘Holy s**t, you look great,'" Cohen recounted. "I saw a picture of a pizza yesterday; I thought, I can’t wait to eat pizza". He then joked that when his appetite returns, he'll be packing on the pounds. "When I get better, I'm going to gain so much weight," Cohen said. "It's bound to happen".
