Nicki Minaj has taken over Andy Cohen’s hosting duties on the “Real Housewives of Potomac.”

On Thursday, the rapper graced the set of the show to host the reunion special, doing exactly what she said when she joked she was ready to trade her rap skills to showcase her hosting abilities in July.

To celebrate the moment, Minaj shared a slideshow of photos of her and Cohen, showing her wearing a black outfit matched with a pair of black stilettos and pearl accessories. “GUESS WHO BTCHS?!!!!,” she captioned the post, before adding “#Andiconda #RHOP COMING SOON ON @BRAVOTV #Moment4Life,” and tagging Cohen.

Cohen also shared a pic with Minaj, captioning his post, “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.”

Minaj first teased her appearance in the reunion special in July, when she posted a promo for the show featuring a “Potomac”-themed version of her track “Moment for Life.”

“I’ll be hosting the reunion,” she IMK what y’all want me to ask chile,” she wrote.

After her joke, her publicist, Joe, informed Minaj that Cohen would “gladly give up his seat to have you host the Potomac reunion.” Joe shared the screenshot of his conversation with the rapper at the time, telling her taping would get underway around October.

Cohen also previously told ET he would love to find a way to work with Minaj, saying, “I would love to figure out a way to work her into the reunion and I would love to be able to bring her out and see what she has to say and wants to ask the women. ... It could be a fun little new segment. The answer is I’m totally receptive to figuring out how to work her into what we’re doing.”

Reality star Candiace Dillard Bassett also said in August she would love to have Minaj onboard to deliver eight bars on a remix to her song “Drive Back” in exchange for responding to her questions about “Real Housewives of Potomac.
