“If CNN dares to pull me live, I’ll be walking right over to New Year’s Rockin’ Eve to give Dick Clark a lap dance. It’s up to you America.”
-Kathy Griffin, explaining to The Hollywood Reporter what she will do if CNN pulls her off of their New Years Eve broadcast for swearing.
I’m not exactly sure how this is “up to America”, but I can’t imagine any better way to ring in 2011 than by watching my favorite loudmouthed female straddle an octogenarian on live TV. Fingers crossed she blows it by 8:15 so I can call it an early night.

I told y’alls about the It Gets Better Project over the weekend. So many people, especially celebs, are reaching out in support of Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project and Kathy Griffin contributed with this vlog over the weekend.
In it she talks about bullying, gay teens she’s met and how there’s life after high school and small-town, small-minded living.
Have you made a video for It Gets Better yet?

I never really followed Griffin too much, but this was way too good to pass up. I love her (clearly staged) reaction to finding out that Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin, daughter of “hopey-changey” Sarah Palin, are back to knockin’ boots.
Hey — at least she’s legal now, right?

If there is one “celebrity” that makes my skin crawl, it’s that little goody two-shoes, stick-up-her-ass, wet blanket Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Not only does this woman give Republicans a bad name, but she’s inarticulate, passive-aggressive and generally childish. Exhibit A: Her reaction to Kathy Griffin on this morning’s episode of The View.
Now, it’s no secret that Kathy has dished on Elisabeth in her stand up and that the two have radically different political views, but while most people are able to put politics aside and see the humor in Kathy’s roast-like stand up act, Elisabeth just broke down. Throughout the entirety of Kathy’s interview, Elisabeth stayed silent only piping up to ask loaded questions about her stance on Obama and the state of the White House. At one point, Kathy is talking about the work she’s done to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and Elisabeth absentmindedly stares at her fingernails. She also paused at one point to stretch and yawn. During an interview on a televised talk show. If that doesn’t qualify someone as a bitch, then I don’t know what does.
Toward the end of the second segment (check it out after the jump), Elisabeth tries to defend herself to Kathy, asking her if she’s uncomfortable being around the people that she’s bashed in her act. Kathy came back with a “I live for it, bitch!” and Elisabeth quickly backed down, but it was clear that she didn’t “get it”. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is her own worst enemy because she’s ignorant. She cannot see outside of her tiny world. In a way, we need someone as thick-headed as her on television to use an example of how dangerous stupidity can be.

Kathy Griffin has gone from being considered one of the most annoying, unsuccessful people in Hollywood to one of the most mildly-annoying but wildly successful people in Hollywood. I have to admit, even in the moments where I can’t stand her, I am always tuning into her show My Life on The D-List. There’s something about that lady! She sticks to her bit and she makes it work for her. Even if you don’t think she’s funny, you have to respect her business model, you know?
Her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live was as funny as ever last night. You can watch all three clips here, but in the clip above, listen to Kathy’s theory on how to win any Twitter war in an instant using that “fierce bitch” Justin Bieber’s loyal fans.

You’ve probably heard the buzz that Kathy Griffin’s going to be appearing on an upcoming episode of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, and you’ve probably even heard that she locks lips with Mariska Hargitay, but until now we didn’t know what it would look like. The video’s been leaked online. It’s just a short clip, but you get to see the kiss and that Kathy Griffin’s acting has seemingly improved.
It’s quite obviously a move to get the ratings back up (as almost all girl-on-girl action is on television) after their ratings took a huge hit due to a time slot change, but SVU is one of my favorite shows and so if resorting to cheap tactics to keep in on the air is what they have to do, it’s fine by me. Are you going to be tuning in?
