In the interview, Griffin also revealed that she is no longer friends with her longtime CNN New Year's Eve Live co-host Cooper, who publicly criticized the photo shoot. Cooper said in a statement. "We've traveled the world together and performed in 30 plus cities with 'AC2, ' and it's all led to this one huge night!" However, in August, Griffin told NY magazine that their friendship had ended in the wake of the scandal. It will be the 11th year of CNN's hosting of the New Years Eve show.
