I Have 'More Qualifications Than Andy Cohen': Kathy Griffin Slams Ex-BFF After Fallout

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Kathy Griffin is living her best life after her controversial Donald Trump scandal.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about her infamous "bad joke," the comedian said: "I didn't commit a crime. I didn't rape anybody. I didn't assault anybody. I didn't get a DUI. I mean, my God, there are celebrities that f***ing kill people."

She claimed that one of the worst things that came out of her career-ending prank was her falling out with longtime pal Anderson Cooper. She said that she "really loved him," but hadn't spoken to him since he tweeted his disdain for her beheaded Trump joke.

As readers know, Griffin, 57, shared a photo of her holding what seemed to be a decapitated Donald Trump, 71, bleeding out. While she claimed it was just dark comedy, most of the internet disagreed, as did her bosses, family members and many of her pals.

She was fired from her NYE gig at CNN, which she used to host with Cooper, 50, and Andy Cohen was hired as her replacement.

Since the news was announced, Cohen, 49, clearly voiced his disapproval of Griffin, as did she of him.

Andy Cohen

The spunky redhead told her THR interviewer: "I am a 57-year-old woman who should command respect. I have the hardware. I certainly have more qualifications than Andy Cohen!"

Despite having basically ruined her career in the United States, Kathy Griffin is still doing comedy tours abroad, and enjoying her secluded life inside her $10.5 million Bel Air mansion. Sorry Cohen!
