The Real Housewives of Orange County
reunion on Bravo featured an appearance by a surprise guest – a bird that flew into the studio.
During the taping earlier this month, Andy Cohen
was in the middle of asking Tamra Barney a question about her fiancé, Eddie Judge
, and costar Vicki Gunvalson's boyfriend, Brooks Ayers, when the bird grazed by his head, drawing shrieks from the Housewives and prompting a flustered Cohen and some of the women to leap out of their chairs.
"Oh my God," Cohen said, shaking himself off after he had collected himself.
As for the feathered visitor? It landed on a fruit basket, looking calm as could be.
"This gives a whole new meaning to the word 'Tweet'," Heather Dubrow
deadpanned after the incident.
A day after the taping, Cohen Tweeted
: "That's a wrap on Epic #RHOC. I got attacked."
Part one of the reunion airs July 10 on Bravo.
