Good Riddance, Anderson Cooper
In the following days, Griffin says four of Cooper’s CNN colleagues reached out repeatedly to Griffin to check on her and offer private support (I independently confirmed this). But Cooper didn’t contact Griffin until August 10, CNN confirmed to me.
On July 26, when asked about Griffin on Andy Cohen’s talk show, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Cooper claimed that Griffin was still a friend. “Yeah, we’re still friends, and look I said what I said about — I didn’t think what she said was appropriate, but I wish her the best and I hope she bounces back,” he told Cohen.
The fact that Cooper was telling people publicly they were friends, while not checking in with her, hurt Griffin deeply. When he finally reached out to her in a series of text messages, she told him their friendship was over.
This Kathy Griffin story, from The Cut, is from Sunday night, but I was just thinking about it this morning and got angry. So. Send me to jail if you don’t want me to talk about it on Tuesday morning. I’ll go! I don’t care! Send Anderson Cooper there, too. I’ll go to bad blogger jail, he’ll go to bad friend jail! Good riddance to him! He sucks! Fuck him! “When he finally reached out to her in a series of text messages”! Never read thirteen words I hated more (about my formerly favorite New Year’s Eve duo)! How dare you, Anderson Cooper! SHE WAS YOUR FRIEND!
NOT to Anderson Cooper,
