Kathy Griffin's anti-Trump joke cost her jobs, endorsements, and friendships. But she called it quits with her bestie Anderson Cooper — after 17 years.
In June, Griffin risked her career by posing for a photo that shows her holding a mask that's covered in fake blood and resembles Donald Trump. The fallout was bigger than the annual New Year's Eve ball drop, and caused CNN to ditch the comedian from future co-hosting duties with Cooper.
It turns out Cooper didn't reach out to Griffin during the aftermath of the photo backlash. She didn't hear from him until August 10.
