Kathy Griffin is known for bringing the jokes, but this time, she’s making some pretty serious accusations against Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen.

In a lengthy video posted to YouTube, Griffin accused the TV exec of offering her drugs. “Both times I did the show, right before we went live, Andy Cohen privately asked me in an office if I wanted to do blow,” Griffin said. “I’ve never had a drink in my life. You guys know I’m not prude, but I’m kind of like a straightedge, I thought he was kidding the first time,” she added.
The comedian, who worked under Cohen for 10 years, continued, “I was hoping he was kidding, the second time I do the show, same thing. So once again we’re alone in an office and he’s like, ‘Wanna do some coke?’ And I’m thinking, ‘He’s serious!’ Trust me, he’s going to say he’s kidding and everything, no. He was asking me to do cocaine with him, that made me very uncomfortable.”
Once news of Kathy Griffin’s accusations went viral, Cohen quickly hopped on Twitter denying the claims.
I am completely stunned by this story. It is 100% false and totally made up.

According to Us Magazine, Cohen denying knowing Griffin during an appearance on TMZ ignited her rant. It’s also worth noting that Cohen was hired to replace Griffin on CNN’s New Year’s Eve special after the comedian was fired for releasing a picture of her holding Donald Trump’s severed head earlier this year.
Andy Cohen wasn’t the only target in Kathy Griffin’s rant. She also called out TMZ’s Harvey Levin as well as her former publicist and attorney Lisa Bloom for attempting to sabotage her following the backlash from the Trump pic.
