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. The network says that instead, Anderson Cooper will co-host the celebration teamed with Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live".

In the interview, Griffin also revealed that she is no longer friends with her longtime CNN New Year's Eve Live co-host Cooper, who publicly criticized the photo shoot.

"I've been friends with Anderson for twenty-five years", Cohen stated.

Cohen will replace comedian Kathy Griffin at Cooper's side. "We've traveled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with "AC2" and it's all led to this one huge night!" Cooper said in a statement. Most recently, Cohen appeared Monday on Anderson Cooper 360 to dissect the president's recent tweets. It came as the result of the backlash a photo shoot of hers received, depicting her holding the severed (fake) head of Donald Trump.

Soon after Cooper's comments, however, Griffin told The Cut that her friendship with Cooper was over, as she was "hurt deeply" by him declaring they were still friends without checking in with her first.

During a press conference, Griffin said the "termination was hurtful" even though her photo was immoral.
