Andy Cohen Laments The Death Of Real Housewives Editor Peter Gamba
Coronavirus has taken another life. Andy Cohen commemorated a lifelong editor who worked on one of his series, The Real Housewives of New York City. USA Today reported on a statement from Cohen earlier today in which the television show host revealed the editor had died from COVID-19.
Cohen described the 63-year-old editor, Peter Gamba, as one of the most important parts of its production. During an appearence on his television show, Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen , broadcasted from Andy's home, the host explained that they had lost someone "very special" to the Real Housewives franchise.
Cohen explained that as nearly everyone in the audience knows, the editing is "vital" to the success of the programs. According to the Bravo TV host, Peter edited the very first episode of New York Housewives during the first season.
Coincidentally, or perhaps not so, Cohen was diagnosed with coronavirus this past month. During the same portion of his show, Cohen recalled some of the more enjoyable moments working with the editor over the last twelve years.
Gamba left behind his wife and two daughters, Julia and Michelle. He was married to Jeanne for years. At the start of the month, two of Gamba's co-workers started a GoFundMe page for Gamba's family. Thus far, the page has raised more than $65,000.
Gamba isn't the only entertainment industry worker to get hit by the coronavirus. In addition to Andy Cohen; Idris Elba, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Colton Underwood, Rachel Matthews, and Scarface from the Getoboys contracted the virus.
Initially, many in the general public thought of the virus as just being a slightly more severe version of regular influenza, however, additional reports have come out stating that the experience can be a lot more excruciating due to its effects on the respiratory system.
For instance, The Bachelor alum, Colton Underwood, said the worst part of the coronavirus was its effect on his breathing. Underwood, who used to play football, said he was a very fit and healthy person but the virus was still taking its toll on him. Moreover, Underwood is in his late 20s.
