Kathy Griffin Sounds Off On Bestie Anderson Cooper: 'I'm His Personal War Zone'

They've had us in stitches for past eight New Year's Eves, and it looks like the fun won't be stopping anytime soon.

The fiery Kathy Griffin told HuffPost Live on Wednesday that CNN has extended her and Anderson Cooper's NYE contracts, and she'll continue to stop at nothing to get the silver fox fired.

"I'm trying. I'm really trying," she said, and there's no question she's put forth a concerted effort. Between the comedienne taking her shirt off, grabbing AC's crotch and handcuffing herself to him, it's surprising that the straight-laced TV anchor has thus far only elicited a nervous giggle.

"He's terrified," Griffin continued. "He says that he sweats more with me on New Years on those risers in the middle of Times Square -- where one year I believe it was 13 degrees -- than he does in any war zone. And I take pride in that. I am his personal war zone."

But we all know the "Look At My Butt Crack" comedienne is just kidding, as she admitted her much beloved pal is "one of a kind."

"We've just been texting, actually" she said. "He's in Ferguson right now, so our dinner plans are ruined."
