Kathy Griffin slams ex-buddy Anderson Cooper: “Cooper and Jeff Zucker are cut from the same cloth”

Former cohost of CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast Kathy Griffin took another opportunity to slam her former BFF and cohost, Anderson Cooper.

Referencing his recently deceased mother, Griffin said, “I was really in love with Anderson’s mom, the great Gloria Vanderbilt. She let me call her ‘Glo-Vandy.’ She gave me so many life lessons… I actually knew her better than Anderson in a way,” RadarOnline reported.

Slamming Cooper and his boss, CNN Worldwide chief Jeff Zucker, she said, “Anderson Cooper and Jeff Zucker are cut from the same cloth. I’ve known Jeff for a long time, but a lot of these older white guys hate me, and they’ve hated me for years, because I’ve been a ballsy chick my whole career and I’ve never learned my lesson.”

Griffin went on, “Misogyny and sexism is a big part of my message, and as I get older I don’t have a fuck left to give… So I don’t really worry about the Jeff Zuckers and the old dinosaurs anymore — the ‘check-signers’ I call them — because they’re still the same old white guys who told me 20 years ago I was going to be nothing, and that I was never going to make a living.”

In May 2017, CNN fired Griffin from her co-hosting duties after she tweeted out a picture of a decapitated President Donald Trump head.
