Kathy Griffin Hits Andy Cohen 5 Years After He Replaced Her On CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live” Broadcast: “I don’t know her”

There is no holding back. Kathy Griffin criticized Andy Cohen and stated that she will not be watching CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live special to ring in 2023.

“Ugh. Every year around New Year’s Eve, someone sends me this clip,” Griffin, 62, posted on Instagram on Saturday, December 31, alongside a video of Cohen speaking to TMZ in 2017.

The Watch What Happens Life With Andy Cohen host, 54, was approached about replacing Griffin on CNN’s year-end special but pretended he didn’t know the comic in the video. “Who?” he asked. “I don’t know her.”

In her post on Saturday, Griffin added: “This guy was my boss for years. Decided whether or not I worked at Bravo. Can you imagine seeing your ex-boss on TMZ like…this? Ouch! Anyway, I can’t wait to watch Miley [Cyrus] and Dolly [Parton] tonight. 🔥🔥⚡️.”

She included the hashtag “misogynist” as well.

For nine years, the My Life on the D-List alum co-hosted the cable news network with Anderson Cooper. Griffin was fired by CNN in May 2017, only days after she posed in a photo session with a bloody severed head designed to resemble President Donald Trump. “We found what she did disgusting and offensive,” the network said in a statement at the time. “We are pleased to see she has apologized and asked that the photos be taken down.”

Cooper criticized the photo in a statement at the time but insisted he was still friends with Griffin. On WWHL in July 2017, the journalist was questioned about their relationship. “Yeah, we’re still friends, and look I said what I said about — I didn’t think what she said was appropriate, but I wish her the best and I hope she bounces back,” he told Cohen at the time.

Griffin subsequently told New York Magazine that he didn’t contact her until August of the following year, three months after the original scandal. At that time, she ended their friendship.

Earlier this month, she recalled how her life has changed since the photo controversy in an op-ed for Newsweek. “I learned that my old friends weren’t coming back. Anderson Cooper calling my photo ‘disgusting’ still hurts because I really adored him,” she wrote. “Andy Cohen saying ‘I don’t know her” ‘after it all went down was, and is, painful because I really enjoyed my time at Bravo.”

Cohen and Griffin have been fighting for years. Griffin takes another jab at Cohen on Good Day New York in July 2019.

“If he has a skill set, I’d like to know what that is,” the comic said of Cohen at the time. “It’s hard to name one.”

Weeks later, the Real Housewives executive producer told USA Today that Griffin lies about him. “She’s made up a lot of stuff about me in the past few years that have just been untrue and sad,” Cohen claimed. “I hope she finds some peace.”
