Why Andy Cohen Blames Anderson Cooper For The Ryan Seacrest Feud Rumors


After publicly dissing Ryan Seacrest’s ABC special in 2021, Andy Cohen took to his SiriusXM show, “Radio Andy,” to clear the air. In fact, Cohen profusely apologized to Seacrest, clarifying, “I really like Ryan Seacrest, and he’s a great guy.” The Bravo star continued, “I was just stupid and drunk and feeling it,” (via The Independent). At the time, Seacrest didn’t publicly address the drama but he did seemingly fire back at Cohen almost a year later.

In December 2022, Seacrest spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming New Year’s Eve coverage, touching upon CNN’s decision to have their hosts, Cohen and Anderson Cooper, cut back on drinking while hosting live. The former E! News host reasoned, “I don’t advocate drinking when one is on the air. I don’t know how that started as a tradition, but it’s probably a good idea [to scale back], CNN.” 

Seacrest understood that Cohen’s comments were influenced by alcohol, so there seemed to be no hard feelings. However, during the 2022 New Year’s Eve festivities, the Cohen-Seacrest feud apparently got ugly. Days after both hosts were present at Times Square for their respective specials, Seacrest claimed on “Live! with Kelly and Ryan” that he tried to get Cohen’s attention but Cohen ignored him, adding a new layer of drama to the story.
