In a gossipy report in the New York Post’s Page Six, sources say that comedian and CNN’s New Year’s Eve co-host Kathy Griffin feels “betrayed” by Anderson Cooper’s condemnation of her photoshoot with a bloodied, severed head of Donald Trump, which ultimately got her fired from CNN.
Cooper said, “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”
The Post’s source said, “Kathy totally misjudged this. She truly believed that Anderson would stick up for her,” and that she “feels somehow betrayed.”
The source said of Cooper’s other friend, Bravo host Andy Cohen, “Anderson wants Andy to co-host with him. They are already doing a multi-city tour together, they are besties and have a great rapport.”
But sources caution Cohen “may have some contractual problems to overcome” from Bravo before he could appear on CNN.
