Anderson Cooper hates women. The openly gay CNN anchor's hatred for females stems from his dysfunctional childhood growing up in the shadow of his domineering single mom, fashion designer Gloria Vanderbilt.
Who can forget the pained expressions on Cooper's face when he was forced to share the spotlight with comedienne Kathy Griffin on previous CNN NYE shows.
When Griffin was booted from the NYE specials -- with Cooper's blessing -- he jumped at the chance to pitch openly gay TV personality Andy Cohen as his sidekick for CNN's NYE 2018 show.
But fans were unimpressed with their silly banter and jokes that missed the mark by a mile. Some even called for CNN to bring back Griffin, who is blackballed from TV for all time.
Did you watch CNN's NYE show?

Anderson Cooper is missing Kathy Griffin in the worst way. CNN New Years Eve Live is NOT working.#AndersonCooper

Unfortunately the coverage was terrible....realize it was sub zero, but really! Blubbering throughout the entire broadcast was so unprofessional
