Kathy Griffin‘s past cocaine claims against Andy Cohen are resurfacing in the wake of Leah McSweeney‘s bombshell lawsuit against him and Bravo.

After the Real Housewives of New York City alum, 41, accused Andy of snorting cocaine with his favorite Real Housewives cast members, a video shared by the 63-year-old comedian in 2017 resurfaced on social media, in which Kathy accused Andy, 55, of offering her cocaine ahead of two separate appearances on his late-night talk show, Watch What Happens Live.

“I’ve done Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen twice in the, I think, 10 years it’s been on. And I’ve never said this before, obviously, but both times I did the show, right before we went live, Andy Cohen privately asked me in an office in Embassy Row, which is the production company that does that sh*t show, if I wanted to do blow,” Kathy alleged in the 2017 clip. “Alright, I’ve never had a drink in my life. You guys know I’m no prude but I’m like, kind of a straight edge. I thought he was kidding the first time.”

“He’s like, ‘Do you want to do some coke?’ I’m thinking, ‘He’s serious!’ He was asking me to do cocaine with him. That made me very uncomfortable … I thought that was weird. I don’t know why he gets away with that,” Kathy continued.

Kathy also suggested that Andy “harassed” her and “treated [her] poorly,” which Andy responded to on Twitter.

“I am completely stunned by this story. It is 100% false and totally made up,” he insisted.

As fans may recall, Kathy’s claims against Andy were made after he replaced her as Anderson Cooper‘s New Year’s Eve co-host after she was fired for sharing an image of then-president Donald Trump beheaded.

After Page Six shared the 2017 clip from Kathy on its Instagram page on February 28, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, 42, of Shahs of Sunset, and Chanel Ayan, 45, of The Real Housewives of Dubai, weighed in, coming to Andy’s defense.

“I’ve done WWHL about a dozen times and I must admit I’m jealous I was never offered anything stronger than a good wholesome time. Leave Andy alone!” GG wrote.

“We are in a place where you can’t trust to be friends with anyone coz they be snitching on you even when it’s not reality or truth,” Chanel added.

Following the filing of Leah’s lawsuit, Andy’s rep vehemently denied the claims against him.

“The claims against Andy are completely false,” the rep told Page Six.
