Kathy Griffin Shuts Down Reconciliation Hope With Anderson Cooper

Kathy and her former co-host for CNN's annual New Year's Eve broadcast fell out after she was slammed for her controversial photo of her holding a fake severed head of President Donald Trump in 2017.

AceShowbiz - If you think Kathy Griffin is planning to mend broken fences with former BFF Anderson Cooper, you may be disappointed. The comedian reveals in a new interview with PEOPLE that she has yet to reach out to her former New Years Eve co-host following their fallout in 2017.

When asked if she had spoken to Anderson after his mother passed away in June, the 57-year-old said that Cooper was "not really wired that way." She explained, "I don't think he's that kind of guy. I just don't think he's wired that way."

"Jeff Zucker, he was my boss at NBC and then when I was at CNN. I didn't work at CNN. That’s another thing, the Trumpers go, 'Kathy Griffin = CNN = ISIS,' and I'm going, 'Wait a minute, one night a year. I'm not a reporter!' I just think Jeff and Anderson aren't those type of guys," she added.

The comedian went on saying, "I just don't think he has really any interest in [making up]. Like I said, after going through something like this, I'm done chasing people. I'm down to three friends on a good day. I just kind of want to go where I can make people laugh."

During the interview, Kathy also threw a shade at her old boss Andy Cohen. Not holding back, Kathy shared that "Andy Cohen treated me like a dog," in addition to calling the Bravo executive "one of the worst bosses I've ever had." She continued, "The guy decides the entire slate at Bravo and he gave himself a talk show that magically gets renewed every year."

Kathy and Anderson fell out after the former landed on hot water for her controversial photo of her holding a fake severed head of President Donald Trump in 2017. Anderson, who has been co-hosting CNN's annual New Year's Eve broadcast with Kathy since 2007, appeared to be distancing himself from Kathy as he tweeted, "For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate."

The backlash eventually cost Kathy her hosting gig as she was fired. Andy later was tapped to take over her duty alongside Anderson.
