Where is Kathy Griffin? CNN's New Year's Eve Now Co-Hosted By Andy Cohen

Kathy Griffin was the longtime co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve special with Anderson Cooper, but she was let go from the show back in May of 2017.

Earlier in the year, Kathy took part in a photo shoot where she beheaded a figure with the likeness of Donald Trump. CNN promptly let Kathy go after the extreme backlash.

Bravo’s Andy Cohen was announced as Kathy‘s replacement back in October, and he will be joining Anderson tonight.

Anderson and Andy will be hosting live on CNN beginning at 8 p.m. ET in New York City’s Times Square.

Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen Dish On Their Failed Blind Date

Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen did a hilarious interview together on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday night (December 22) in New York City.

The longtime best friends will be co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve special next week and they opened up about their failed blind date many years ago.

“We were actually set up on a blind date,” Anderson said about how he met Andy. “You know when straight people know two gay guys, they’re like, ‘Oh you guys should meet.’ We had a phone call to set up the date, I was a young reporter at NBC, he was at CBS. And I knew within 45 seconds, I was never going on a date with Andy Cohen.”

“I imagined him on a Bluetooth headset and gesticulating. He was all excited. And he violated my cardinal rule, which is he asked me about my mom within the first minute of talking to me,” Anderson added.

Andy replied, “I wanted to date the Vanderbilt boy! I was excited!”

Anderson Cooper Says His Twitter Was Hacked, Did Not Tweet 'Pathetic Loser' at Trump

Anderson Cooper says his Twitter account was compromised overnight and he did not send any tweets out during that time.

Someone on the 50-year-old TV correspondent’s account had tweeted a reply to Donald Trump‘s tweet about endorsing Luther Strange.

“Oh Really? You endorsed him too! Pathetic loser,” the tweet from Anderson‘s account read, before being deleted.

This morning, Anderson wrote, “just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account. i have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.”
