ANDY Cohen has revealed he gained back all the weight he lost as he battled coronavirus – and a little extra.
The Bravo TV personality confirmed his diagnosis to fans in mid-March and a source close to the 51-year-old exclusively told The Sun at the time that he was "stressing out" about his shock diagnosis and was "scared" his loved ones could get the virus too.
Andy has now recovered and is back working on Watch What Happens Live and his Real Housewives reunion shows, but has now opened up on his ongoing medical issues.
He told Extra: "I lost a ton of weight and I gained it all back- and more."
The dad-of-one also revealed he still has "cloudiness" in the lung but doctors are not overly concerned right now.
He said: "I had a chest X-ray a few weeks ago and there was a little cloudiness in the lung. They said that’s commensurate for someone who is recovering. Otherwise I feel pretty good."
Andy was originally refused for a test in March despite his symptoms, but as things got worse he was able to get tested.
Sharing a downcast selfie on Instagram, Andy wrote: "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."
He added: "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."
In the US, cases continue to rise as CDC director Redfield told Americans "to wear face coverings when we're in public," echoing Dr Anthony Fauci's advice earlier this week.
However, Vice President Mike Pence has declined to order Americans to wear a mask, while President Trump has also been seen flouting recommendations to wear a mask at his own rallies and public appearances.
