Andy Cohen clapped back at Ryan Seacrest. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Ryan shared his thoughts on CNN’s no-boozing rule. He feels that all of their hosts should follow that rule on New Year’s Eve, including hosts Andy and Anderson Cooper. CNN’s correspondents aren’t allowed to drink during the live televised event.
However, the rules don’t apply to Andy and Anderson. They’re free to drink as much as they want. CNN just doesn’t want any of its other employees to abuse the rule. Andy is clapping back at Ryan who advised him to cool it with the drinking. He explicitly shared the details of his “booze plan.”
Andy Cohen still plans to party hard on New Year’s Eve
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Andy Cohen shooed away Ryan Seacrest’s comments about not drinking. The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host said that he prefers to keep it professional while he’s on the air in Times Square. As for Andy, he plans to party hard on New Year’s Eve. He clapped back at Ryan’s criticism over drinking live on the air.
“CNN said the ‘correspondents’ will not be drinking,” Andy Cohen explained to Rolling Stone. “Anderson [Cooper] and I will be the people partying on CNN. Though we will be partying responsibly. If the correspondents are not drinking this year, I will be partying even harder on their behalf.”
Last year, Andy and Anderson took shots of tequila while they were live on air during the New Year’s Eve special. The Bravo executive had a little too much to drink. He went into a spat about the outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio. He also blasted Ryan’s show Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, which was right behind them. This comes after Ryan shared his thoughts on CNN’s decision to end on-air boozing.
Ryan Seacrest supports the move
In his interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ryan Seacrest slammed Andy Cohen. He supports the decision and that everyone should follow the no-drinking rule, regardless of whether they’re CNN employees or not. Ryan doesn’t “advocate drinking when one is on the air.” He tries to keep it buttoned up and professional during the NYE festivities.
“I don’t know how that started as a tradition but it’s probably a good idea [to scale back],” Ryan shared before mentioning CNN’s broadcast. “There’s some pretty respectable people or at least one, right?”
He also feels that it’s “probably a good idea” for everyone to follow that rule. Ryan referred to the time when Andy Cohen made fun of his New Year’s Eve special. Whose side are you on? Ryan Seacrest or Andy Cohen? Sound off below in the comment section.
