Andy Cohen denies he did cocaine amid beef with Kathy Griffin

First, she was at war with Donald Trump after posting a photo of her holding a replica of his bloody, decapitated head.

Then old pal Anderson Cooper, who did not come to her defense after being attacked mercilessly (she called the journalist a “spineless heiress”).

Then her former lawyer Lisa Bloom, whom Griffin called a “fame whore.”

Now Andy Cohen is on the receiving end of Kathy Griffin’s wrath. And it’s not a pretty place to be.

OK, so maybe the Bravo boss shouldn’t have dissed her to TMZ. Asked about replacing Griffin on CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live this year, Cohen told the gossip site’s reporter that he didn’t know who she was.

On Saturday, Griffin released a 17-minute long video titled Kathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story telling followers that not only was Cohen a horrible boss while she worked under him doing “My Life on the D List,” but that when she appeared on his chat show “Watch What Happens Live,” the host offered her cocaine.

“Both times I did the show, right before we went live, Andy Cohen privately asked me in an office if I wanted to do blow,” she alleged. “I’ve never had a drink in my life. You guys know I’m no prude but I’m kind of like a straightedge, I thought he was kidding the first time.”

The comedian added that being offered drugs made her “very uncomfortable.”

Cohen tweeted a few hours later: “I am completely stunned by this story. It is 100% false and totally made up.”

In the comments section, some followers said they believed the former “Fashion Police” host.

Cohen continues to defend himself: “Have said many times it’s not my thing. I am a pot guy. Listen to my Howard interviews I am v specific.”

Others were disturbed that Cohen had turned on his former employee:
