Andy Cohen is FINALLY addressing Jennie Nguyen’s controversial 2020 Facebook posts which resurfaced last week.
The Watch What Happens Live host called Jennie’s posts “disgusting” and “upsetting.”
“The posts were very upsetting … and disgusting,” Andy said on the January 24th episode of his SiriusXM show, “Radio Andy.”
Andy noted that he and Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Lisa Barlow only briefly addressed the scandal on Sunday’s WWHL because it was taped last week only hours after Jennie’s posts began making waves online.
“People were very upset about the lack of discussion on last night’s episode relating to Jennie’s disgusting and upsetting posts, and I’ve also seen all the tweets wanting to know what’s being done about those posts,” he explained.
“I just want to say, in case anyone doesn’t realize it, that there are many serious discussions happening right now about everything — about everything,” he added. “And I can’t address the situation right now, but it will be addressed very soon, and thank you for your patience.”

Meanwhile, a source tells Entertainment Tonight that Jennie has NOT been fired from RHOSLC however her future on the show hangs in the balance.
ET’s Brice Sander tweeted: “No one’s been fired, Jen is actively filming season 3 and the cast is taking the Jennie posts very seriously — we will see it addressed on the show (in season 3) and likely sooner. The only person not filming is Mary, who effectively quit.”
A report from ET later explained that the Salt Lake City Housewives are “outraged” over Jennie’s post. The source went on to reveal that the RHOSLC cast plans to “hit [Nguyen] hard” on camera about the posts while filming season 3, which started filming last week.
“It’s raw, but warranted,” the source adds, noting that the RHOSLC cast is taking a “we won’t tolerate racism” stance.
Another source later revealed that there’s still a big question mark hanging around Jennie’s fate on the show.
“It’s still very early on. Who knows what’s going to happen with Jennie? She may not stick around for the whole season,” the source said, adding that Bravo has yet to finalize the season 3 cast.
The source explained that the network is currently testing out new women that could become snowflake holders or friends of the Housewives.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
