Kathy Griffin, Anderson Cooper

CNN

New Year's countdown cohorts Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper are getting so close they're almost like family.

Griffin has even met Mr. Silver Fox's mom, jill-of-all-trades socialite Gloria Vanderbilt

"The best part this year was like at 12:31, as soon as we finished, his mom called and wanted to meet me," Griffin told me yesterday at the Grammys. "I went to the house for lunch—just me and Gloria freakin' Vanderbilt."

Griffin pooh-poohed the rumors that she's now been blacklisted by the news network because of her potty mouth.

"I'm not banned," she insisted. "They normally don't call me for that gig until November anyway.

"I love that job," she continued. "I love the Anderson Cooper. I know you do, too. Everybody wants him."

If only we could hear what they say to each other when the cameras aren't rolling. Griffin said, "During the commercial breaks, we just turn around and watch—and talk about things like J.Lo's outfit."

Anderson Cooper for Fashion Police, anyone?
