Andy Cohen Won't Apologize For Getting Drunk On NYE Broadcast

Andy Cohen says he is not ashamed of his drunken antics during the CNN NYE live broadcast.

"I will not be shamed for having fun on New Year's Eve. That's why I'm there. That's why they bring me there," he told Howard Stern.

"It's a four-and-a-half-hour show. The booze started kicking in around 11:30. So everyone's focusing on kind of the last 45 minutes or hour we were on the air. It kicked into high gear with 45 minutes left. We'd done 15 interviews before that point. And I won't be shamed for it."

Cohen added, "I had a blast. Anderson had a blast. We left and we were like 'That was fun! What a fun New Year's Eve.' There will be no apologies for drinking on New Year's Eve. None."

At the beginning of the week, Cohen did say that he regretted throwing shade at Ryan Seacrest.

"The only thing that I regret saying, the only thing is that I slammed the ABC broadcast, and I really like Ryan Seacrest and he's a great guy," Cohen said. "And I really regret saying that, and I was just stupid and drunk and feeling it."
