Andy Cohen has been tapped to co-host CNN's New Year's Eve telecast alongside Anderson Cooper after Griffin was sacked by the news network earlier this year. 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. Noting that he's known Cooper for 25 years, Cohen has publicly announced his excitement to co-host the New Year's Eve special with him. Cooper said in a statement.

Awful canned quotes aside, the two men have a great rapport, as recently evidenced when Cohen was a guest on Cooper's primetime CNN show, offering to produce a Real Housewives-ish reunion show for CNN in which The Wives Of Donald Trump could thrash out their differences, literally. We've traveled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with "AC2" and it's all led to this one huge night!' She said in August in an interview with The Cut that her friendship with Cooper was over. During that time, Griffin also headlined her own Bravo reality series, My Life on the D List, which ran for six seasons before it ended in 2010.

Cohen and Cooper regularly tour together, hosting a night of conversation in various cities throughout the country.

Cohen and Cooper have appeared on one another's shows constantly over the years.

Cohen tweeted after the announcement that he "could not be more excited".

The pair have been friends for decades, performing in standup/discussion shows across the globe.
