One of the best parts of saying goodbye to 2023 was watching Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper together once again to host CNN’s New Year’s Eve special. In addition to getting his “juice” and chatting with John Mayer as the singer called in from a cat café, Andy stunned viewers by taking time to call out Ryan Seacrest, who hosts Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.

As many know, the Bravo personality is known to be, um, candid during these NYE broadcasts. In fact, back in 2021, Andy uttered that ABC audiences were watching “Ryan Seacrest’s group of losers” perform at the time. After receiving backlash for the unexpected comment, CNN confirmed to People they spoke with Andy about what happened, and he later expressed his remorse for the incident. Then last year, Ryan publicly said that he waved at Andy during the show, but that Andy didn’t wave back, to which Andy replied that he didn’t see him.

After all that, Andy wanted to make it very clear with his audience that there were no hard feelings between him and Ryan.

“I just want to point out I made a big effort,” he told Anderson during the broadcast per The Hollywood Reporter. “We waved at Seacrest. He saw us waving, so he cannot go around saying that I dissed him.”

“Don’t start it. Don’t even mention it,” Anderson chimed in.

“I’m just keeping it real clean. We have waved … connection has been made — all good,” Andy replied.

Anderson then mentioned that he and Andy complimented Ryan on the iconic formal attire he wears every year for ABC’s broadcast.

“We complimented his outfit,” Anderson said. “He looked great. He’s in a very nice tux.”

“Just keeping it clean,” Andy responded. “I’m keeping my side of the street clean this year.”

Despite the unforeseen shade Andy threw Ryan’s way, it’s important to note the two are all good with one another. In fact, when Andy stopped by Ryan’s On Air radio show back in January 2023, the duo insisted they weren’t actually feuding at all.

“I didn’t know where we stood, Ryan!” he said at the time. “I got to tell you something, I like watching people fight. I don’t like fighting with people.”

“Well we’re not [fighting],” Ryan remarked. “That’s the funny thing — we are not.”

Well, here’s to that!
