“I will not be shamed for having fun on New Year’s Eve. That’s why I’m there.” he explained on Tuesday, January 4. “It’s a four-and-a-half-hour show. The booze started kicking in around 11:30…I kicked into high gear with 45 minutes left.”

Andy Cohen, defending his drunken NYE on-air rant while yelling about Mayor Bill de Blasio for doing the “crappiest job” as the mayor of New York. The Bravo host also slammed ABC’s Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, calling the performers a “group of losers.”

!! OMG, WATCH: Waitress goes viral for clapping back at pervy homophobic customer !!

SONDRA!! We are fans, hunnie!!

Don’t mess with a waitress from Long Island! A couple of Tik Toks showing a waitress (and our new hero) at the Massapequa Diner in Long Island kicking out a creepy customer after he allegedly tried hitting on a group of underage girls then made homophobic and sexist remarks are going viral.

“You’re not wanted here,” the waitress, identified as Sondra Albert, is heard telling the man after accusing him of making offensive comments about LGBTQ people.

“You’re a pedophile and freak and you deserve to be locked up in Bellevue. And that’s all I gotta say and I’m asking you nicely.”

Speaking to the New York Post, Albert explains,

“I’ve been a waitress for 15 years. You get your occasional drunk people, but nothing like this man. It’s a different kind of abuse and I’ve never exploded like that before.”

She adds,

“He’s not a person we want in the diner. If he comes back the cops will come. He’s a danger.”

!! OMG, VICE presents: Did the CIA actually sell crack in the ’80s? !!

The rumors have circulated for decades. Did the CIA flood the inner cities of the US with crack cocaine in the 1980s? Was the American government actually responsible for the crack epidemic?

Often dismissed as a conspiracy theory, but passionately believed by huge sections of the population – the idea that US intelligence agencies knowingly protected drug traffickers and played a role in bringing cocaine into the US is one of the most often repeated stories of the War on Drugs.

But what is the truth to these allegations? It turns out the real story is perhaps even stranger than the street-level gossip.

This is how one reporter exposed a web of CIA cover-ups, and how the rest of the media destroyed him for doing so.

Shed some more light on the history of the war on drugs with VICE above! Have YOU bought crack from the CIA, OMG?
