I feel like every Anderson Cooper appearance on Watch What Happens Live these days may as well just get billed as “Take THAT, Kathy Griffin!” But they also usually come out with some totally non-rehearsed bit of tea that’s certainly not to gin up ratings for Andy Cohen’s new role co-hosting New Year’s Eve on CNN with Anderson.
There is nothing Andy Cohen loves more than good ol’ fashioned shit-stirring, so when he was asked about Kathy Griffin, the gal who used to host CNN’s New Year’s Eve with Anderson Cooper, he stole an original Mariah Carey line. Time to hire Taylor Swift’s trademark attorneys, Mimi! Continue reading
When Kathy Griffin posted a photo of her holding what looked like a severed Donald Trump head, Squatty Potty shit on her contract fast and pulled the plug on their endorsement deal with her. So did other companies including CNN. They dropped her from co-hosting their annual New Year’s Eve show with her former gay BFF Anderson Cooper. Well, CNN has found her replacement in the form of Anderson’s shit-stirring sidekick Andy Cohen. Continue reading
Along with civil rights, rational discourse, and everybody’s ability to get through the night without waking up covered in flop sweat, chalk up the friendship between Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper as yet another thing ruined by Donald J. Trump. In a recent interview with The Cut, Kathy confirms that her long friendship with Coop is officially over.
I was watching Anderson Cooper interview Bernie Sanders the other night, and I was all, “Praise the LAWD we can vote that orangutan out of the White House next year.” Unfortunately, I was reminded that it has only been eight months of the Trump presidency, and I immediately tried to see if I could find someone to drive me to Taco Bell and not judge while I stress ate a gordita. UGH. It’s been a total shit storm of an eight months, and one of the casualties in the wake of Prez Cheeto (along with what was left of our national dignity) is Kathy Griffin. As you may recall, she did a photo shoot with a bloody mask that looked like she was holding up his severed head, and, well, that didn’t exactly play well.
Thanks To That Bloody Trump Mask Pic, The Dynamic New Year’s Eve Duo Of Kathy Griffin And Anderson Cooper Is No More
It hasn’t even been 24 hours since Kathy Griffin caused everyone to lose their heads (I see you eye-rolling at my very original pun) over her holding a repurposed Michael Myers mask covered with grenadine syrup in the name of art, and she’s already on her way to joining Billy Bush in the section marked: Tricks Who Get Punished As An Untouched Trump Gleefully Coqueefs Along.
Kathy ended up apologizing for the stunt and said that she knows she fucked up. But it wasn’t enough. Kathy lost an extremely lucrative deal to continue to hawk the shit-aiding toilet ottoman known as Squatty Potty. (You know you really shit the bed when a poop tool product doesn’t even want to be associated with you.) And now CNN has dropped Kathy as co-host of their New Year’s Eve special.
