When asked if there was any sort of relationship left between the pair, Kathy was quick to answer ‘no’ and admitted they’re just two different people.

‘I am apparently not her cup of tea, but I think she is great,’ she replied. ‘I am not a comedy snob.’

Their feud began years ago after comedy legend Joan Rivers died in 2014 and Kathy reportedly pleaded with Ellen to do a tribute for the icon.

DeGeneres thought Rivers’ style was ‘mean’ and refused to do anything for Joan, which set Kathy off, according to Variety.

‘I’m vulgar, but I think it’s great there’s clean comedians and prop comedians and topical comedians and observational comedians,’ she explained.

‘I’m just happy whenever a female — especially a female over 50 — is still in the game.’

When asked if she had put her feud to rest with Bravo patriarch Andy Cohen, Kathy was quick to respond.

‘No. Nope. Why? If he has a skill set, I’d like to know what it is,’ she said. 

She continued her conflict with Anderson Cooper while on a press tour for her upcoming documentary/comedy special Kathy Griffin: A Hell of a Story.

Griffin discusses in the movie how hard it was to lose her relationship with Cooper, but when asked if she has spoken to Cooper since then, she seemingly shaded Cooper by saying she knew his mother better than he did.  

When asked if she had spoken to Cooper since his mother passed away at the age of 95 in June, she said Cooper is, ‘not really wired that way.’ 

‘Anderson Cooper and Jeff Zucker are cut from the same cloth … a lot of these older white guys hate me, and they’ve hated me for years, because I’ve been a ballsy chick my whole career and I’ve never learned my lesson.’ 

Griffin and Cooper were friends for many years, but that abruptly ended, after Cooper publicly bashed Griffin for her 2017 photo of her holding a fake decapitated head of Donald Trump.
