Andy Cohen Confirms He Filmed ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season 8 Reunion Virtually; Says “It Was A Great Reunion”

Andy Cohen confirmed he hosted a virtual reunion with the season eight cast of Vanderpump Rules. “I taped the Vanderpump Rules reunion on Thursday,” Cohen dished on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy on Monday, May 4.

While Cohen admitted he was distracted toward the end of the taping as he knew his close pal Anderson Cooper was set to announce the birth of son Wyatt on CNN on Thursday, April 30, he assured listeners that the virtual taping went well, according to Us Weekly.

“It was a great reunion,” he said. “Really good.”

Late last month, sources revealed that the reunion for Pump Rules was going to be filmed online, just like RHOA.

“It really is looking that way with a decision coming down any minute,” a source told HollywoodLife. “Nobody knows when they’ll be able to film and they know they need to get it done. Everyone’s health and safety is the biggest concern and they won’t take any chances.”

The insider shared that “they will wait as long as they possibly can to be able to do it in person, but it’s looking less and less likely with each day that passes due to the Coronavirus.”

“Of course, everyone will be bummed out to not do it in person,” the insider continued. “They really do not want to have to shoot the reunion virtually as the cast is so large and there’s so much to say and that needs to be addressed,” the source added.

The outlet claimed producers were also looking to create additional episodes and specials with the amount of unused footage they currently have to possibly extend the season. “Vanderpump Rules has so much footage since they shoot for so long that they are working on putting together enhanced episodes like a secrets revealed and fun facts type of episodes,” the source told HollywoodLife, also adding that “the show shoots longer than most other shows on the network so there is always a lot of footage.”
