Andy Cohen only has one regret following his drunken antics on New Year’s Eve.

As we previously reported, Andy got quite tipsy while hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live – so much so that he called out competing broadcast — Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve hosted by Ryan Seacrest.

“If you look behind me, you’ll see Ryan Seacrest’s group of losers performing,” he said of Seacrest and ABC’s NYE broadcast. “I’m sorry, but if you’re watching ABC, you’re watching nothing.”

Now days later, Andy admits he regrets calling out Ryan.

“The only thing that I regret saying, the only thing is that I slammed the ABC broadcast,” Andy said on Monday’s Radio Andy. “And I really like Ryan Seacrest, and he’s a great guy, and I really regret saying that, and I was just stupid and drunk and feeling it.” 

“I was continuing the Journey rant, and I just kept talking, and I shouldn’t have, and I felt bad about that, so that is the only thing,” he added.

Meanwhile, on Monday, reports began to surface that CNN wasn’t planning on inviting Andy back to host their NYE program next year.

“We claim to be the most trusted network in news, and yet CNN hires Andy Cohen to make a fool out of all of us with his New Year’s performance?” a top insider told Radar Online. “Andy doesn’t even work for CNN, and yet he has been the face of our network for the past 48 hours. It is embarrassing, and real CNN staffers are very angry.”

“Andy went too far. I think we can agree that it is CNN who look like losers,” added another top CNN source. “Nothing has been made official yet, but internally we have been told that Andy will not be invited back next year. Embarrassing himself is one thing, but embarrassing Anderson Cooper is another. It was already known that Anderson doesn’t want to host next year’s special; he would rather ring the new year in with his son. And without Anderson, thankfully, there will be no Andy Cohen.”

CNN quickly shut down this report telling E! News, “Andy said something he shouldn’t have on live tv. We’ve addressed it with him and look forward to having him back again next year.”
