Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen’ Holds ‘The Golden Robes’ Awards Before Returning To the Studio
Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen returns to the Clubhouse studio on Sun., October 11 at 10 p.m. But before host Andy Cohen makes a triumphant return he is planning to host a special awards ceremony honoring the last few months of the online show.
“Before heading back in studio, Andy will say goodbye to production at home with ‘The Golden Robes,'” Bravo shared in an email statement. The virtual awards ceremony will celebrate the best and worst moments the show had from the virtual space.
The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, Oct. 7 at 10:30 and will mark the last WWHL show to be held virtually. “We feel so fortunate to have kept the show going remotely, but there’s no place like our clubhouse,” Cohen shared. ‘I cannot wait to come home to my tchotchkes and elbow my crew.”
