Kathy Griffin goes after Andy Cohen and TMZ’s Harvey Levin in SEARING YouTube video

“Let me tell you a little bit about Andy Cohen. He was a miserable boss for all those years. I mean — I think in the six seasons that we did My Lif on the D List, I think Bravo visited the set twice. Eight Emmy nominations, two wins… The whole time I was working there, I didn’t know that Andy Cohen, like, wanted to be me. For example: I hosted this awards show one time called the A-List Awards… I didn’t know that Andy Cohen was on the red carpet, like trying to be funny, asking questions on I didn’t know that when they ended the D List and I desperately wanted to do a talk show, Andy Cohen would be the first television executive in the history of television to give himself a talk show. It seems to get picked up every season.

I’ve actually done Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen twice in the 10 years it’s been on. And, um — I’ve never said this before obviously — but both times I did the show, right before we went live, Andy Cohen privately asked me in an office in Embassy Row, which is the production company that does that sh*t show, if I wanted to do blow. Alright, I’ve never had a drink in my life — you guys know I’m no prude but I’m like, kind of a straight edge. I thought he was kidding the first time. Just so you know — Jimmy Kimmel or Seth Meyers has never asked me to do blow before going on their show. Noone from The View has ever asked me to do blow before a show.

Second time I did the show — same thing. So once again we’re alone in an office and he’s like, “You wanna do some coke?” He’s going to say he was kidding, but no, he was asking me to do cocaine with him. That made me very uncomfortable… That’s why I don’t do that show, and I don’t know why he gets away with that.”
