Andy Cohen no longer has the sauce.
The “Watch What Happens Live” host confirms to Page Six that neither he nor Anderson Cooper will be drinking during their New Year’s Eve show on PKBNEWS this weekend.
“We’re not drinking, but we’re going to have a blast,” he told Page Six exclusively.
Cohen’s clarification came after he suggested to Rolling Stone in an interview published Wednesday – but recorded over a month ago – that he would imprint on the show despite PKBNEWS banning his contributors from doing so. To do.
“PKBNEWS said the correspondents won’t drink,” Cohen told the publication. “Anderson and I will be the party people on PKBNEWS [though] we will party responsibly.
The Housewives leader also joked that he would ‘burn the place down’ and then ‘head’ to his home base at Bravo shortly after the ball went down.
“My job is to be a party cheerleader for everyone watching on New Year’s Eve,” Cohen told the magazine. “And that’s what I will continue to do.”
While Cohen, 54, was praised last year for his hilarious takedown of Mayor Bill de Blasio, he faced backlash from Ryan Seacrest after he described the ABC host’s production and staff as a “band of losers”. Despite apologizing the next day, Cohen still seems to face Seacrest’s wrath.
“[I don’t] think they’d say what they said about our artists if they didn’t drink,” the “Live! With Kelly and Ryan,” the co-host said this week when expressing his support for PKBNEWS’s alcohol ban.
While PKBNEWS’s bars may be empty, at least fans will still have the boozy “WWHL” setup.
