Kathy Griffin got social media buzzing Saturday when she said Andy Cohen offered her cocaine before getting in front of the cameras for his Bravo show, “Watch What Happens Live.”
“I am completely stunned by this story. It is 100% false and totally made up,” Cohen tweeted.
A Bravo spokesperson followed that up, saying, “This is completely false and we are not going to credit it with any more attention.”

The controversial comedian has appeared on the Cohen-hosted and -produced late-night talk show twice in the 10 years it’s been on Bravo and, Griffin said, both times he asked her if she wanted to “do blow” with him.
“Right before we went live, Andy Cohen privately asked me in an office in Embassy Row — which is the production company that does that s— show — if I wanted to do blow,” Griffin said in a lengthy Twitter video which bashes both Cohen and TMZ founder Harvey Levin.
“You guys know I’m no prude but I’m like, kind of a straight edge — I thought he was kidding the first time,” she went on. “Just so you know, Jimmy Kimmel or Seth Meyers never asked me to do blow before going on their show. No one from ‘The View’ has ever asked me to do blow before a show.”
And, according to Griffin, she got the same invitation the second time she did his show.
“Same thing,” she said. “That’s why I don’t do that show, and I don’t know why he gets away with that.”
Embassy Row did not respond immediately to TheWrap’s request for comment.
In addition to executive-producing an episode of Griffin’s “My Life on the D-List,” Cohen also executiveproduced a number of Griffin’s comedy specials.
