Kathy Griffin Told Anderson Cooper Their Friendship is Over

KATHY GRIFFIN  INSTAGRAM Kathy Griffin posed for this

It was the scandal of the summer when Kathy Griffin released a photo of herself holding what appeared to be President Donald Trump's severed, bleeding head. The two, who had been long-time friends and colleagues at CNN, have drifted further and further apart.

Adding to her woes, the Secret Service launched an investigation into the post while Griffin beared the brunt of an aggressive public campaign launched against her by the Trump family. "It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate", he said. Cooper, however, told a different story on "Watch What Happens Live" last month when asked for a status update on their friendship. Ali tweeted a screenshot of the email Griffin received from CBS Corporation's Arnold Kopelson, who wrote the kind of "Dear Leader" letter you'd expect to read in something like V For Vendetta, further signaling our descent into a dystopia. I understand how it offends people.

Griffin claimed that she was upset by Cooper's excoriation of her photo shoot, where he took to Twitter to condemn the atrocity. Griffin tells the outlet that Cooper eventually reached out to her in a a series of text messages, and that's when she told him their friendship was over for good.

Griffin and Cooper were friends for 17 years prior to their falling out over the photo shoot.

"President Trump just pardoned Joe Arpaio, who was essentially running a concentration camp in the Arizona desert", she said. "It wasn't amusing, I get it", she said in a video, saying that she would take down the image. According to Griffin, Amy Schumer personally sent her a amusing video and former Today show host Billy Bush - who was notoriously caught up in his own Trump-related scandal - reportedly suggested in a note that Griffin stay quiet for a while and take up meditation. "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".

During her conference, Griffin said, "What's happening to me has never happened - ever - in the history of this great country, which is that a sitting president of the United States and his grown children, and the first lady, are personally - I feel - personally trying to ruin my life forever".

The comedian worked with Anderson on the New Year's Eve special for CNN for many years and they have known each other even longer than that.
