Andy Cohen Will Replace Kathy Griffin to Host New Year’s Eve With Anderson Cooper

 

Andy Cohen, the gay host of Watch What Happens Live!, is replacing Kathy Griffin as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve festivities, Vulture reports.

Griffin had previously hosted the live event in Times Square, but had her contract nullified in May after doing a photoshoot with a decapitated Donald Trump head.

“Andy is the life of the party wherever he goes, and what bigger party is there than New Year’s Eve?” Cooper said in a statement. “It is going to be a blast!”

The pair are longtime pals, performing in standup/discussion shows across the globe.

“I’ve been friends with Anderson for twenty-five years,” Cohen stated. “We’ve traveled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with ‘AC2’ and it’s all led to this one huge night!”

Here’s a foreshadowing of what’s to come, a strange moment in which Anderson Cooper’s blue eyes remain striking but his face seems to have witnessed something life-altering.
