Kathy Griffin says that her former boss, Andy Cohen, treated her badly.

Griffin told People Now in an interview Tuesday that “[he] treated [her] like a dog.”

“He was, like, one of the worst bosses I ever had,” she said. “He decides the entire slate at Bravo and yet he gave himself a talk show at Bravo that magically gets renewed every year,” she continued.

The comedian starred in the reality series My Life on the D-List from 2005 to 2010 on Bravo and eventually got her own talk show on the network, Kathy from 2012 to 2013. Griffin noted that the show’s cancelation had something to do with Cohen.


“I had a talk show at Bravo for two years,” said Griffin. “And it got canceled and I thought, ‘Yeah, it’s like in a way it’s like competition for Andy.”

She also talked about her former CNN New Year’s Eve co-host, Anderson Cooper. Griffin was replaced by Cohen in 2017 after she was fired for posing with a fake, bloody decapitated head that resembled President Donald Trump.

The image went viral and Cooper spoke about it on Twitter.

“For the record, I am appalled by photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in,” Cooper said. “It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.

Griffin was then asked if she thought Cooper would ever reach out for reconciliation.

“I don’t think he has really any interest in it. And I’m, like I said, after going through something like this, I’m, like, done chasing people,” she said. “I’m down to three friends on a good day, and so I just kind of want to go where I can make people laugh.”
