After her whole Trump decapitated head kerfuffle, Kathy Griffin’s world basically turned upside-down.
Was it fair? Hell no.
Did she lose her gig as Anderson Cooper‘s New Years Eve cohost on CNN? Yes, she sure did.
Her (frankly undeserved) firing left a vacuum in the high-stakes world of news network new year’s hosting, but who would step into this coveted role and become a freshly minted god of counting down from 10?
Who would have the chops? The forced banter? The ability to fake enthusiasm that 2018 is going to be any better than 2017?
None other than Anderson’s bestie, Watch What Happens Live host and Bravo mascot Andy Cohen.
The news is out! I'm co-hosting New Year's Eve on CNN with @andersoncooper and I could not be more excited!

Yeah, still not going to be watching CNN on New Year’s Eve. We’d just as soon watch Air Bud on Halloween night.
