A month later, and we finally have comedian and fired CNN contributor Kathy Griffin‘s thoughts on CNN’s New Year’s Eve special, which she wasn’t hosting this year.
Griffin didn’t plan on watching — in fact, reports Us Weekly, she spent the evening “making love” to her boyfriend — but when she and her boyfriend received nonstop texts about the broadcast, led by her (former) friend Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen, calling it a “trainwreck,” they tuned in.
“Kathy said, ‘I want to watch,’ ” her boyfriend, Randy Bick recalled. “I said, ‘Are you sure? It could be painful.’ But we turned it on, and she was like, ‘This is a dumpster fire.’”
“I didn’t commit a crime,” Griffin explained. “I didn’t rape anybody. I didn’t assault anybody. I didn’t get a DUI. I mean, my God, there are celebrities that f–king kill people.”
The special came in first place in the ratings, despite Griffin’s absence.
