In response, Cohen tweeted that Griffin's accusations were "100% false."

I am completely stunned by this story. It is 100% false and totally made up.

In addition, a Bravo spokesperson told BuzzFeed, "This is completely false and we are not going to credit it with any more attention."


Griffin's video seems to be a direct response to a video from TMZ, in which Cohen pulls an "I don't know her" when asked about taking over Griffin's job on CNN's New Year's Eve coverage.

Griffin tweeted in direct response to the video as well, calling Cohen "deeply misogynistic."

Cohen later tweeted that his "I don't know her" was just an attempt to deflect, and not a dig at Griffin.

@derbydonnalea @yashar it was a joke to deflect the question. It wasn't anything deep.

Griffin also took time in the video to rant about TMZ and its founder, Harvey Levin, playing a voicemail she received from Levin himself that included his phone number., Frederick M. Brown / Getty Images

Griffin accused TMZ of misogyny and ageism in their coverage of women, including herself and Ashley Judd. She qualified her decision to release Levin's phone number by citing the death threats that she and her family received after TMZ's coverage of her photoshoot with a prop severed head resembling Donald Trump. (It was this controversy that cost her the gig hosting at CNN).

(By the way, the number is indeed Levin's extension. The voicemail box at the number is currently not accepting messages.)

There's a lot more to unpack in Griffin's 17-minute video, including her take on Anderson Cooper and Jeff Zucker. However, since it directly doxxes Levin, it might not stay up on YouTube for long.
