Andy Cohen Has Tested Positive for Coronavirus

The New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) database confirms that Weinstein has been at the Wende facility since March 18th; although Weinstein is to serve his sentence at Fishkill Correctional Facility, the Wende facility San Antonio News serves as an intake center for new prisoners, the Niagara Gazette writes.

A spokesperson for Weinstein told the Daily Beast of the COVID-19 report, “Our team… has not heard anything like that yet.

Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in a New York state prison on March 11th. The former movie mogul was found guilty of two charges in his sexual assault trial. Weinstein faced between five to 29 years following his conviction on charges of a felony sex crime and third-degree rape; the former charge carried the five-to-25 year sentence, while the latter charge was punishable by a maximum four-year sentence.

Prior to his sentencing, Weinstein’s lawyers asked the judge for the minimum five-year sentence, citing the producer’s philanthropic efforts, his contributions to film and his age; at 67 years old, his legal team told the judge, “the grave reality is that Mr Weinstein may not even outlive that term.”

“Watch What Happens Live” shut down last week when television Press Release Distribution Services  In San Antonio productions were closing down because of the growing coronavirus pandemic. Its last episode was shot on March 12. As a talk show host, Cohen has an unusual amount of contact with other famous people — guests this month have included Hillary Clinton, Padma Lakshmi and Seth Meyers, among many stars of Bravo shows. Cohen also recently shot the revival of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, in which celebrities play for charity. Anderson Cooper and Kaitlin Olson are also on that program, set to return to ABC on April 8.

The Bravo star now joins Idris Elba, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Daniel Dae Kim and “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood in the dystopian new category of celebrities who have gone public with their diagnoses.
