Ryan Seacrest Accuses Andy Cohen of Ignoring Him; Cohen Responds
Meanwhile, Seacrest accused Andy Cohen of ignoring him when they hosted their respective New Year’s Eve specials over the weekend.
“It was funny because my big stage was right in front of Anderson [Cooper] and Andy,” he told his co-host, Kelly Ripa, during the Tuesday episode of Live with Ryan and Kelly. “When I was not working, I was trying to get their attention.”
He then revealed that Cooper waved at him and mouthed “have a good show,” while Cohen just ignored him.
“And Anderson, the best. He turns around, and he says, ‘Have a good show.’ Very nice. Andy did not turn around,” he continued.
Cohen, alternatively, broke his silence about it and defended himself.
“Ryan, I don’t know,” he said on Radio Andy Wednesday, per News.com.au. “He’s got a bug up about me – two weeks in a row.”
