Anthony Bourdain

Anderson Cooper won't be having Kathy Griffin by his side this New Year's Eve, but for fans of Andy Cohen, that's going to be A-OK! Andy Cohen, a Cooper friend who hosts "Watch What Happens Live" on Bravo, will team up with the anchor for the next end-of-year telecast.

CNN canned Griffin in May after the controversial comedian posted a photo of herself holding an effigy resembling the severed head of President Donald Trump. 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.
