Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen get in a bit of a disagreement over Kathy Griffin‘s Fashion Police exit while on Watch What Happens Live! on Wednesday evening (March 18) in New York City.
“I’m a huge Kathy Griffin fan. I want nothing but the best for Kathy,” Anderson, 47, said of Kathy, who he has often hosted his New Year’s special with for several years. “And I think she’s going to go on to bigger and better things.”
“I think it’s like the pot calling the kettle black,” Andy said. “She’s like, ‘Oh, I don’t want to make fun of anyone.’ This show’s about making fun of people. And the reason everyone loves Kathy Griffin is she makes fun of people constantly… I mean I love Kathy Griffin too! And I love her humor. But if it wasn’t working, then say it wasn’t working. I didn’t think it was working but don’t make it about the body shaming.”
“To be completely honest, I don’t understand some of the other folks who are on that show,” Anderson said. “I would watch that show for Kathy Griffin. Some of the other people, I was like: I don’t get why this person is on television.” He also added, “You love to stir it up.”
