The two Today stars moderated the "Ask Andy" panel during Bravo's three-day fan convention in New York. The event made its highly anticipated return on 14 October, and it is the first time it returns to New York City following a two-year hiatus due to pandemic related restrictions.

The network previously announced that the event, which in 2019 sold out in under a minute, will feature "various cast and executive producer panels, interactive photo opportunities and exclusive sneak-peek screenings of upcoming highly anticipated series".
