However, in discussion with Andy Cohen during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Cooper stated he was still friends with the disgraced comic following her forced resignation. CNN says Cooper will co-host its New Year's Eve celebration teamed with Cohen.
'Andy is the life of the party wherever he goes, and what bigger party is there than New Year's Eve? "We found what she did disgusting and offensive", the network said in a statement at the time. "We've traveled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with 'AC2, ' and it's all led to this one huge night!"
Now it looks like Cooper's bestie Andy Cohen is taking her place. Griffin and Cooper had co-hosted CNN's New Year's Eve coverage since 2007.
In August, she said she's "no longer sorry" for the bloody Trump effigy, adding the "whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody". He executive produced several of her stand-up specials that premiered on the NBCUniversal cabler in the early 2000s. Additionally, Cohen shared the news of his position during the New Years Eve broadcast on social media.
Cohen and Cooper have appeared on one another's shows constantly over the years.
