Andy Cohen has feelings about CNN NYE’s no-drinking rule. This year’s live New Year’s Eve show is going to be a lot different since none of the network personalities are allowed to drink on TV. Last year, Andy caught heat for his rant about former New York City Bill de Blasio. He was intoxicated when he went off on the outgoing mayor.

Andy blamed his behavior on the alcohol. However, fans think he was under the influence of something stronger. As a result, CNN wants to move forward with its plans not to allow their hosts to get drunk on New Year’s Eve. Andy Cohen sounded off on that new rule.

What does Andy Cohen think of not getting drunk on NYE?

In an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Andy Cohen shared his honest feelings about not getting drunk on New Year’s Eve. Last week, news broke that the new CNN chief, Chris Licht, wants to promote sobriety. This includes not allowing the hosts to drink during the televised event. The new CNN head honcho is more conservative than the ones before him.

When the news came out, Andy Cohen vowed to “party harder” than ever before. He took to Twitter to share a clip of himself toasting on the telecast and saying, “Sayonara!” Andy doesn’t want to join the sobriety pact. The Bravo head honcho said that the new CNN head doesn’t want him to change his ways.

“What [Christ Licht] said was that he didn’t want the correspondents out there drinking, but that he wanted Andy [Cooper] and I to do our thing,” Andy Cohen explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “So I’m happy to do our thing. My only directive for years on CNN has been to have fun on New Year’s Eve, and that’s absolutely what I plan to do.”

Rule only applies to CNN reporters?

However, it appears that the new rules only apply to CNN reporters. It doesn’t affect Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen, who is stationed in Times Square for the ball drop. Even though Anderson is technically a reporter, he still can drink if he wants on television.

That might not be the case for fellow reporter Don Lemon, who often trends on Twitter after having too much to drink. During last Wednesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cooper admitted that he and Anderson are “going to party harder than we have ever partied before on New Year’s Eve.” This one is going to be a lit one for the BFFs and co-hosts of the annual event.

What are your thoughts on Andy Cohen’s feelings about CNN NYE’s no-drinking rule? Do you think the rule should just apply to only reporters? Or, do you think the hosts shouldn’t drink as well? Sound off below in the comment section.
