So much for a band-aid baby! According to an OK! insider, Kathy Griffin had high hopes that the February arrival of Anderson Cooper's second child would help them reconnect and end their feud — however, no hatchets have been buried between the two.

"Anderson holds a grudge like no other. Once you upset him, it’s for life. There is no going back," the source exclusively tells OK!. "He isn’t rude and he’s not vindictive, but he is very cold and has zero interest in ever being friends with Kathy ever again."

The stars were once thick as thieves, but the silver fox, 55, distanced himself after the comedian, 61, posted the infamous image of herself holding what resembled Donald Trump's bloody decapitated head. Her antics also caused her to get the boot from their New Year's Eve cohosting gig.

While Cooper's busy with work and his two tots, Griffin has been down on her luck since being diagnosed with lung cancer last summer.

Shortly after, she took to Twitter to reveal she was experiencing random new symptoms, writing, "Ok, #CancerTwitter. Last night, an hour after dinner, I vomited about a dozen times over the next 3 hours. This did not happen prior to my half lung being removed last August."

Fortunately, Griffin got the answers she was looking for when she met a new doctor. "I'm returning home from an appointment with a female oncologist," shared the star. "I actually burst into tears because she listened to me, she had a scribe take notes, and she set me up with three other female specialists in my network."
