According to Hollywood Life, filming of the upcoming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season will be paused because of safety concerns around the coronavirus. “RHOBH was shut down due to COVID. Everyone thinks it’s a crew member that tested positive and the ladies and production were informed this morning,” a source told Hollywood Life on November 25. The source also spilled that the cast and crew have been told to quarantine for 14 days, but they haven’t been given much other direction. This perhaps isn’t what first-timers Crystal Kung Minkoff and Kathy Hilton had expected when they signed on to do the show.
The same situation happened with The Real Housewives of Atlanta where a crew member reportedly contracted the virus. Understandably, the cast members with young children were particularly affected — Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams were reportedly vocal about their concerns about exposure.
All in all, we’re happy to hear that everyone’s health and safety is top of mind. As much as we want our reali-tea, we’re going to need all the cast members in full health for that.
