Lotta drama over alotta nothin’!
After Anderson Cooper failed to defend Kathy Griffin for holding up a bloodied head of President Trump, CNN fired her from her gig as the co-host of its yearly New Year’s Eve bash, replacing her with another friend of Cooper’s, comedian and Bravo host Andy Cohen. In a recent interview, referring to the fact Cooper is both a member of the wealthy Vanderbilt family and gay, she called him the spineless heiress.
Shortly thereafter, a TMZ reporter stopped Cohen to ask if he had discussed taking the gig with Griffin, who he would be replacing. He indicated he had no idea who she was.
He and Griffin worked together for years at Bravo.
Then Griffin replies with an explosive allegation that Cohen asked her to do cocaine before appearing on his Bravo show, Watch What Happens Live: “Both times I did the show, right before we went live, Andy Cohen privately asked me in an office if I wanted to do blow.”
Of the video where he pretended not to know who she was, Griffin said, “Deeply misogynistic.”
Cohen, for his part, denied the cocaine allegation to People magazine, saying, “I am completely stunned by this story. It is 100% false and totally made up.”
