Andy Cohen has now confirmed he will replace Kathy Griffin as Anderson Cooper's co-host on CNN's annual New Year's Eve special.

From ET:

Cooper and Cohen have been friends for years, with Cooper appearing on WWHL after Griffin was fired from CNN's New Year's Eve special.

"We're still friends," Cooper told Cohen of Griffin in July.  "And look, I said what I said about -- I didn’t think what she said was appropriate, but I wish her the best and I hope she bounces back."

Citing the CNN host's hurtful comments, Griffin, has said that her friendship with Cooper is over
