Bravo talk show host Andy Cohen has confirmed that he will be Anderson Cooper‘s new partner and co-host for the CNN New Years Eve Show.
The news is out! I’m co-hosting New Year’s Eve on CNN with @andersoncooper and I could not be more excited!

Cohen will replace Kathy Griffin, whom CNN cut ties with earlier this year. The comedienne lost her New Years hosting slot amidst the blowback for a controversial photoshoot where she held up a bloody likeness of President Trump‘s severed head.
Earlier this week, Cohen appeared on CNN to comment on the recent “first lady” spat between Melania Trump and Ivana Trump. Cohen might’ve been offering a subtle preview of today’s news since he said at the time that he’d “love” to co-host a show with Cooper.
