This has been a tumultuous year and Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen – like many of us – are looking forward to saying goodbye and good riddance to 2020.
In a recent interview for “Anderson Cooper Full Circle” previewing Thursday’s CNN New Year’s Eve Live, the “Watch What Happens Live” host told Cooper that he can’t wait to co-host for the fourth straight year.
“I really am excited to hang out and get drunk with you for five hours in New York City,” said Cohen. “Like that to me is a super fun New Year’s Eve plan. So I’m psyched to hang out with you, and we’re just going to turn this sh*t show around.”
This year’s show will feature some of the biggest stars of the year, including Leslie Jordan, Sarah Cooper, Desus and Mero, and John Mayer.
The last three years have produced some memorable moments, which they reviewed during the interview. Most notable is probably Cooper reacting unfavorably, to say the least, to shots they’ve taken together. Cohen said the alcohol of choice this year is tequila.
And Cooper wouldn’t let Cohen off the show without questioning him about his hair, which Cohen has grown out this year.
“When friends, you know, care about one another, they, you know, feel it’s OK to just bring something up,” said Cooper. “So I just want to talk about your hair just a little bit. Look, what is going on with your hair, sweetie?”
Cohen responded by saying that it’s “the year of Covid” and lots of people are growing their hair out, but he will be getting it cut in January.
Catch all of the fun starting Thursday at 8 pm ET on CNN. Unlike prior years, which had large crowds of revelers, this year’s event will be closed to the public because of the pandemic.
