Fahion Police on hiatus; Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen butt heads over Kathy Griffin’s departure
After much controversy and suspicion, E! has announced that it is putting “Fashion Police” on hiatus.
Just last week, co-host Kathy Griffin left the show after seven episodes, saying her style did not blend in with her co-hosts.
And it’s safe to say that Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper do not see eye to eye about Griffin’s departure from the show.
Cohen and Copper, both longtime pals, argued over the controversy surrounding the show during the after show of Watch What Happens Live last night.
Cooper told a caller that he sent Griffin a text after she announced she was leaving the show. “I’m a huge Kathy Griffin fan. I want nothing but the best for Kathy. And I think she’s going to go on to bigger and better things.”
Cohen, on the other hand, had a different take. “I think it’s like the pot calling the kettle black,” he interjected. “She’s like, ‘Oh, I don’t want to make fun of anyone.’ This show’s about making fun of people. And the reason everyone loves Kathy Griffin is she makes fun of people constantly… I mean I love Kathy Griffin too! And I love her humor. But if it wasn’t working, then say it wasn’t working. I didn’t think it was working but don’t make it about the body shaming.”
