Outrageous gives way to outrageous: Kathy Griffin's replacement as Anderson Cooper's sidekick on New Year's Eve will be Andy Cohen, CNN announced Wednesday.

Griffin, who had co-hosted New Year's Eve with Cooper since 2007, was sacked from the gig in May after her controversial photo shoot in which she posed with a bloodied replica of President Donald Trump's head. "It is going to be a blast!" he said in the press release.

"I've been friends with Anderson for 25 years", Cohen said.

Donald and Melania Trump lambasted her for the photo. Cooper said in a statement.
