Andy Cohen is clapping back at Kathy Griffin after she called him “one of the worst bosses” she’s ever had.
Previously, the comedian slammed the Watch What Happens Live host him on Twitter. Kathy exposed that he had treated her “like a dog,” he was her boss for the two years when she starred in the reality series “My Life on the D-List” and her talk show, “Kathy,” from 2012-2013.
“Andy Cohen treated me like a dog. He was one of the worst bosses I’ve ever had,” she said. “The guy decides the entire slate at Bravo and he gave himself a talk show that magically gets renewed every year.”
On Tuesday, July 23, Cohen, 51, told USA Today that he wasn’t pleased by the comments.
“She’s made up a lot of stuff about me in the past few years that has just been untrue and sad,” Cohen told USA TODAY. “I hope she finds some peace.”
Their feud began when Andy Cohen took Kathy’s New Year’s Eve hosting gig with pal Anderson Cooper. Shortly after, Griffin claimed Cohen had been her boss for 10 years, treated her horribly and was “deeply misogynistic.”
Kathy noted that she had a talk show on the network for two years before it was canceled and theorized that she was posing a competition to Cohen, leading to her ousting.
“She’s made up a lot of stuff about me in the past few years that has just been untrue and sad,” Cohen told USA Today Tuesday. “I hope she finds some peace.” He continued: “She said something that I found incredibly vile about (Cooper) last week that I think says more about her than anything else.”
Their fall out stemmed from Andy’s reaction to her now-infamous 2017 photo in which she posed with a fake, bloody head of Donald Trump. After she was fired as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast over the image, Cohen took over.
