Cohen, Cooper and CNN

While the New Year rang in on CNN, gays from hither and yon were debating whether Andy Cohen was a jocular gent or a loveable louse.  “I will not be shamed for having fun on New Year’s Eve – that’s why I’m there,” said Cohen.  No one debated having fun on NYE – it’s having it on CNN that was the issue.  After much speculation, the network brass weighed in.  “Andy said something he shouldn’t have on live TV.  We’ve addressed it with him and look forward to having him back again next year.”  What Cohen said was, “Ryan Seacrest’s group of losers that are performing behind us.  I mean, with all due…if you’ve been watching ABC tonight, you’ve seen nothing.  I’m sorry.”  The next morning, Cohen felt differently: “The only thing that I regret saying, the only thing is that I slammed the ABC broadcast, and I really like Ryan Seacrest and he’s a great guy.  And I really regret saying that, and I was just stupid and drunk and feeling it.”  The issue is the close friendship Cohen and Cooper have with Kelly Ripa – who co-hosts her daytime show with Ryan.  Andy’s crack puts Ripa in the middle – not helped by the fact that both Cohen and Cooper coveted Seacrest’s seat (so to speak).  It surely makes for an awkward Sunday funday.
