After Kathy Griffin was unceremoniously booted from the gig, Anderson Cooper's New Year's Eve companion will be his longtime pal Andy Cohen, CNN announced on Wednesday.

Oh hell yeah can't wait to party through the tiny, confetti-strewn hours when 2017 is dead and 2018 has yet to prove disastrous. "It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate". "We are pleased to see she has apologized and asked that the photos be taken down".

Cohen is a long-time friend of the news anchor, and the two men posted to Instagram about holidaying together this summer. It will be the 11th year of CNN's hosting of the New Years Eve show.

In fact, the comic now says he didn't contact her for months following the incident.

"I've been friends with Anderson for twenty-five years", he said in a statement.

During a press conference, Griffin said the "termination was hurtful" even though her photo was immoral. The comedian admitted that she has "crossed the line" and acknowledged that her act has caused an outrage among the public.

Her controversial representation of the US president has forced the huge network to terminate their contract with the female host.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump and the First Family slammed Kathy Griffin over the "disturbing" photo. "He is a bully", she said at the time.

"You guys know him, he's not going to stop".
