During the program, the Bravo scion threw back shots, scorched former New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and didn't mince words about ABC's competing New Year's broadcast. On Jan. 3, with a few days to reflect on the evening/early morning, Andy now regrets one thing from the evening, and it was calling Ryan Seacrest and the ABC broadcast a "group of losers."
"The only thing that I regret saying, the only thing is that I slammed the ABC broadcast 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," he said on his SiriusXM show Andy Cohen Live show. "And it was, it was, 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. It's the only thing."
In one of the more viral moments from the evening, which Andy alluded to, he laid into the band Journey, who performed for the ABC broadcast.
"I just got doused with confetti from the fake Journey appearing on ABC," he angrily said before brining up Journey's original singer, who left he band in 1987. "If it's not Steve Perry it doesn't count… It's propaganda, it's propaganda!" Anderson tried to calm his pal, saying, "things change."
Prior to that, smoke came from the ABC stage, which was behind CNN's designated area.
"There's smoke coming from Ryan Seacrest's group of losers that are performing behind us," Andy said. "If you've been watching ABC tonight, you've seen nothing. I'm sorry."
Still, Andy insisted that he wasn't really bashing Ryan Seacrest, whom he respects.
"The headlines about Ryan Seacrest are all like I trashed Ryan Seacrest," Andy said on Monday. "I'm like, I really, I hope he hears the clip. You know what I mean? Anyway …"
