Nicki Minaj Teases Hosting Gig With Appearance On 'RHOP' Reunion
Nicki Minaj came in with a Bang Bang when she crashed The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion special.
The 38-year-old surprised the reality stars on Thursday, October 7, at their taping for the Season 6 reunion — and took to Instagram to share photos from her appearance. Alongside snaps of the "Bang Bang" songstress posing next to Bravo host Andy Cohen, the rapper wrote: “GUESS WHO BTCHS?!!!!! #Andiconda #RHOP COMING SOON ON @BRAVOTV @bravoandy #Moment4Life yall better binge watch this season chile."
Several of the RHOP stars gushed over the Grammy nominee joining the ladies, with Gizelle Bryant taking to the comment section to write: “Nikki [sic] I absolutely love you!”
“We can’t thank you enough,” Robyn Dixon commented with three yellow heart emojis, while Dr. Wendy Osefo chimed in: "You were amazing! Love you Queen,” with a crown emoji.
Tamar Braxton simply commented three fire emojis, as Shai Jackson wrote, “Omg you really did it,” with crying laughing emojis.
Cohen also took to his respective Instagram to share a photo from the day. “It’s the Reunion I could never get away with! At the end of ours, tonight @nickiminaj surprised the #RHOP and did her own thing! #AndyConda," the 53-year-old captioned his snap of him and the mother-of-one on set.
OK! reported the "Tusa" rapper first hinted at her interest in replacing Cohen as host for the reunion in July, with her writing via Instagram: “I’ll be hosting the reunion. 🥳,” alongside a teaser for the smash hit reality series. “lmk what y’all want me to ask chile🥴.”

The long-time host made it clear he supported Minaj taking over, as he commented: “I want to see this!”
The recent occasion marked the "Moment 4 Life" artist's first public appearance in quite some time, given that she canceled her scheduled 20021 MTV VMA's performance last month and skipped the Met Gala.
At the time of the VMA's, she coyly tweeted: “I just pulled out. I’ll explain why another day. But I love those guys at MTV. … Next year we there baby."
She also revealed she skipped the Met Gala because of the COVID-19 vaccination mandate. “if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now," Minaj declared in a series of controversial tweets.
Minaj later claimed her cousin's friend in Trinidad got the double jab and "became impotent," a declaration that was deemed false by Trinidadian authorities.
