Andy Cohen Forced to Lose Umbrella in Rainy Times Square on New Year's Eve

Andy Cohen got upset on New Year’s Eve night when authorities in Times Square forced him to stop using an umbrella during his CNN special with co-host Anderson Cooper.

The 50-year-old talk show host had been holding a clear umbrella to keep him and Anderson, 51, dry for the first 80 minutes of the broadcast.

“It’s more than drizzling in Times Square,” Andy said (via Deadline). “I’m not putting a damper on anything, but I will say this: I had this umbrella. The lady from the Times Square Alliance came over said, ‘You have to get rid of the umbrella’!”

“I said I won’t do it,” Andy said after Anderson revealed this had been going on for an hour and a half. “I said, ‘Get the paddy wagon, cause that’s what it’s going to take.’ But now they are threatening to pull CNN’s spot from the credentials from Times Square for next year!”

Andy eventually agreed to stop using the umbrella. He said, “This umbrella is such a threat to the Times Square Alliance?! And what does the Times Square Alliance do besides F with my New Year’s Eve?! So, fine!”

He continued, “I really hope the Times Square Alliance is thrilled that I am now completely soaked. I’ve ruined this coat. it’s like a joke. What do they care about an umbrella. I was so happy before.”
