Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Congrats to Kathy Griffin!

My personal idol — well, okay, she’s kind of tied with Chelsea Handler right now — Kathy Griffin, won an Emmy for the second year in a row for her now-inappropriately named My Life on the D-List. I don’t care what anyone else says about you, Kathy — I think you’re a genius and a role model, and so do the Emmy voters. The vid above is of Kathy being a riot in the press room after winning. You’ll recall that last year, in her acceptance speech, Kathy told Jesus to suck it (around here, we just think He’s a sexy bitch). This year, she thought better of it: “I thank you so much,” she said onstage, “I’m not going to tell anybody to suck it.”

Another female comedic genius and barrier-destroyer, Sarah Silverman, took home the award for original music and lyrics for her “I’m Fucking Matt Damon” song, thanking ex-boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel in her speech. “And to the person for whom this was made, Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart … oops … I mean, who will always have a place in my heart,” she said.

Next year, I plan to win in the music and lyrics category, for my in-progress ditty about my naughty pool-repair fantasies titled “I Want Michael Phelps’s Caulk.”

Cynthia Nixon won for guest actress in a drama for her stint as a woman with multiple personalities on Law & Order: SVU, although she didn’t show up to receive her award. The Simpsons took home their 10th Emmy for half-hour animated series and South Park won for hour-long animated series.

  • Where is the story of Lohan punching a photographer in the face? Do I have to get all the juicy stories elsewhere while Beet runs the 100th story about monkey face Phelps?

  • wild.. Im watching her Chicago show right now with her talking about the incident… and surfing your site. I love her! HILARIOUS!

  • Remember that bit KG use to do about how she thought she was cool with Lindsay Lohan until she was dissed at a club? Then she started making fun of LL being the celebrity DJ at some party and she would scratch the turntables and different music was coming out of the speakers.. I know you love that bit Beet. You just can’t help it
