‘RHOA’ Season 12 Reunion Spoilers: 10 Explosive Bombshells From the Taping

The ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta finally reunited to talk about all the drama from season 12. This year, the peaches had to go virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. To keep the cast safe, Andy Cohen hosted the reunion from his apartment in New York City while the girls were in Atlanta.

“We want to be in the same room, but we cannot risk the health and safety of the Housewives or the incredible crew in Georgia,” Cohen said on his SiriusXM show. “[RHOA] is regarded by many as the Super Bowl of reunion shows, and it is truly one of my favorite reunions to shoot, I look forward to it, and the fact of the matter is it’s either we do it this way or there’s no Super Bowl this year.”

Fans pushed back on the notion that the reunion was not going to have the RHOA cast actually reunited. Despite the backlash, Cohen explained it was the best decision to finally wrap season 12 for good.

“If we wait for this pandemic to be over for when we all are in the same room, it’s gonna delay everything,” Cohen explained. “We need to move forward, we need to live in reality right now, and the reality is if we’re going to do this, we’re going to do this right now.”

On the day of the taping, Cohen celebrated by showing off his outfit for the big event.

“Normally, I start this day at a hotel in Atlanta, with a full breakfast. Instead, I’m home,” Cohen said. “I will be wearing a suit… but I think I’ll wear a suit and sweats or just boxers, because who is going to see? That’s my plan. I’d love to just stay in this comfy robe, if you want to know the truth.”
