Andy Cohen chimes in on Anderson Cooper-Kathy Griffin feud with shady remark

The Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin feud just got worse, thanks to Cooper’s BFF Andy Cohen chiming in.

Here’s some backstory first.

Everything started with Griffin’s controversial photoshoot, depicting her posing with Donald Trump’s decapitated head. The dominoes then started falling.

First, CNN anchor and Griffin’s New Year’s Eve co-host Cooper responded to the photoshoot, calling it ‘appalling’. Then CNN dropped Griffin from the New Year’s Eve show.

The network tapped the aforementioned Cohen as the new co-host. Through all this, Cooper maintained he still considers Griffin a friend.

Okay, all caught up? Great.

New slew of burns

Earlier this week, Griffin threw a nasty comment Cooper’s way, calling him a ‘spineless heiress‘. The comment was a reference to Cooper’s status as a Vanderbilt. His mother is the designer and socialite Gloria Vanderbilt.

In a new TMZ clip, a reporter asked Cohen about whether or not he ran the NYE gig past Griffin.

In response, Cohen pulled a page out of Mariah Carey’s book, saying: “Who? Who? I don’t know her.”

Of course, he does.

They worked for the same network and Griffin appeared on Cohen’s talk show a handful of times. But it looks like insulting his best friend went too far for Cohen.

Still, Griffin didn’t let the moment pass her by. This morning (27 October), she tweeted about the exchange, calling Cohen ‘deeply misogynistic’. She also claimed he treated her ‘like a dog’ the 10 years he was her boss.

Talk about bad blood…
