Andy Cohen Denies Ignoring Ryan Seacrest During NYE Special

Da gorls are fighting, as two of the biggest media whores in television are revealing different accounts as to what happened during their tired ass New Years Eve specials.

So Ryan Seacrest revealed on the long running Live! With Kelly and Ryan that he felt he was snubbed by Kelly Ripa's problematic BFF Andy Cohen.

“It was funny because my big stage was right in front of Anderson [Cooper] and Andy,” Seacrest, 48, told Kelly Ripa during Tuesday’s episode of “Live With Ryan and Kelly.”

“When I was not working, I was trying to get their attention.”

The “American Idol” host, 48, then showed Ripa, 52, how he waved to Cooper and Cohen, who were hosting CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live.”

“I thought maybe I was in the shot. I just wanted to wave and say hi. They have a great show,” Seacrest explained.

“And Anderson, the best. He turns around and he says, ‘Have a good show.’ Very nice. Andy did not turn around.”

Ripa, however, refuted her co-host’s claims and alleged that Cohen, 54, did try to say hello to Seacrest.

“That’s not true. He said he was trying to get your attention,” the “Live Wire” author said.

On Wednesday, Cohen addressed Seacrest's allegations on "Radio Andy".

“Ryan, I don’t know. He’s got a bug up about me — two weeks in a row.”

Cohen, 54, then played the audio of Seacrest speaking about the snub on Tuesday’s episode of “Live With Ryan and Kelly.”

“I don’t even know,” the “Real Housewives” producer responded after hearing the audio. “I didn’t see Anderson turn around and wave. Usually what Anderson will do — and I should call him back and ask him about this frankly — if he’s waving at Ryan, he’ll say to me, ‘Hey, there’s Ryan’ and then I’ll turn around and wave. But he didn’t do that.”

Cohen then got Cooper on the line, who seemed to be a bit annoyed with Cohen for dragging him into his mess.

“Oh, you’re gonna get me involved in a thing with Seacrest?” Cooper, 55, asked his friend.

“Yeah, this is a you and I thing because he said on the show that you very politely turned around and waved to him and mouthed to him have a good show and that I didn’t turn around,” Cohen responded.

The “Watch What Happens Live” host continued, “What the point I was just making on the show was usually if one of us sees Ryan and turns around and waves, we’ll say to the other, ‘Oh, there’s Seacrest.’ So I’m saying, you didn’t say that to me this year.”

Cooper then explained that he “just happened to turn” and he saw Seacrest and they both waved at each other.

“It all happened so fast, it wasn’t a big deal,” the CNN political commentator said, adding that he “assumed’ Cohen had spoken to Seacrest earlier that night.

After ending the call with Cooper, Cohen clarified that he didn’t purposely ignore Seacrest, declaring, “I didn’t see him.”

I don't believe a word of it, because everybody knows with Andy's wonky eye it can do a 360 in his head.

All jokes aside, I truly believe that Andy is salty because CNN has forbidden their employees from drinking during their NYE live broadcast, and was probably upset with Ryan saying in the press that he thought it was a good idea.

Let's not forget that Andy, who clearly is a messy drunk (or just plain messy whether drunk or sober) started this first when he called the production team over at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 'a bunch of losers.'

Regardless of the drama (and it's cute you got the blogs talking), both your NYE shows are boring. I watched Miley's instead, and until you do right by Kathy Griffin, every year this show is on is gonna fail!
