Andy Cohen responded to Kathy Griffin’s claims by saying he was “completely stunned” by how false and deleterious her allegations are. In a seventeen-minute long video titled, Kathy Griffin: A Hell Of A Story, the comedienne claimed Andy asked her if she wanted to do cocaine before an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.
In her video, Kathy said Andy asked her to do cocaine in his office on two separate occasions. She stated, “you guys know I’m no prude, but I’m kind of like a straightedge, I thought he was kidding the first time.”
In a tweet which you can see below, Cohen said her story is “100% false and entirely made up.” Additionally, she claimed it all made her “very uncomfortable” and on top of his alleged substance use; Andy was a “miserable boss.”
Kathy also stated Andy is the only television executive to “give himself a television talk show.” The news comes after Andy Cohen pretended that he didn’t know Kathy Griffin.
I am completely stunned by this story. It is 100% false and totally made up.

Cohen said to TMZ, “Who? I don’t know her.” According to Us Weekly, Cohen’s insult is a reference to Mariah Carey’s infamous declaration that she didn’t know Jennifer Lopez.
Coincidentally, Cohen, 49, is taking Griffin’s old job at CNN where he will broadcast alongside Anderson Cooper. As you may already know, Kathy Griffin posed for a photograph with a decapitated head in her hand to resemble that of Donald Trump.
A media firestorm ensued after she released the photo, and many people were quick to condemn the artist. Is it possible Kathy is just jealous of Andy and is looking to smear his reputation? Kathy also attacked Harvey Levin, the creator of TMZ, whom she claims took part in trying to ruin her career. She said “people like Harvey Levin and Andy Cohen” live to take women down.”
