Kathy Griffin says Andy Cohen 'Treated Me Like a Dog': 'One of the Worst Bosses I Ever Had.'
Griffin and Cohen's long-running disputes date back to October 2017 when Andy Cohen jested he didn’t know who Kathy Griffin was.
And as of recent, it seems the conflict between Kathy Griffin and her former boss Andy Cohen is still on the air.
Almost two years subsequent to drama between the pair first began, Griffin, talked it down with PEOPLE Now on Tuesday, where she explained about her broken friendship and past accounts with Cohen.
The comedian and the Watch What Happens Live host have been engaged in a rift since Oct. 2017, but things heightened when Cohen was chosen to run CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live alongside Anderson Cooper after Griffin was fired for giving a pose with a mask of President Donald Trump‘s head soaked on blood. She told Andy Cohen treated her like a dog and that he was, like, one of the worst bosses she ever had.
Griffin went on to suggest Cohen had something to do with the fact that her reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List, was taken off Bravo in 2010. Griffin said the guy often decided the entire slate at Bravo, and also gave himself a talk show that “magically” got renewed every year. She said she had a talk show at Bravo for two years that got canceled and claimed Andy had not been that kind.
A rep for Cohen did not immediately respond to tabloid’s request for comment.
Griffin has made relative reactions about Cohen’s purported treatment in the past.
In October 2017, Cohen joked to TMZ that he didn’t know who Griffin was when asked how he expected the comedian would perceive the news about the NYE substitution.
Griffin fired back on Twitter, saying the stars have known each other for years. As such her reality show aired for six seasons from 2005 to 10 on Bravo, where Cohen was formerly the head of development.
“Even when it’s on tape, there are doubters? He is NOT kidding w paps,” Griffin said. She had likewise added how “deeply misogynistic” his boss was for those ten years.
The following day, Griffin uploaded a 17-minute long YouTube video titled Kathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story and asserted Cohen lives “to take women down.”
At the end of the month, Cohen shared about the occurrence on an episode of his SiriusXM radio show, Andy Cohen Live, and said he had no idea his stunt would misfire the way it did.
Cohen explained he was loomed by TMZ as he was about to have lunch with Watch What Happens Live writer and radio co-host John Hill. In order to “avoid getting involved” with the TMZ paparazzi, Cohen said he had chosen to quote the great Mariah Carey, which was funny in his mind and stupid too.
‘Something that is so innocuous and dumb, so it’s the classic ‘I don’t know her.’
Cohen admitted to failing at his Mariah impression. Most recently, the 51-year-old spoke about their vendetta in an interview with Howard Stern and explained that he had moved on.
In May 2018, Cohen told Stern that he had gotten the job on CNN. He also promised to be a disgusting guy should people wanted him to be. He claimed he wasn’t going to take it on and was just not going to take all for that he has always been on peace.
