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?

She wasn’t about to let her live television appearance scoot by without causing some controversy! For the second year in a row, Kathy Griffin brought us all into another annum with vulgarity. During a CNN shoot with Anderson Cooper, she opted to pronounce Balloon Boy Falcon Heane’s name as “Fuckin.” It’s at around the 0:55 mark in this clip. Anderson Cooper just mutters “you’re terrible” and moves on.
The network said in a statement Friday that it “regrets that profanity was used during our New Year’s Eve coverage.”
As for Kathy? This is her statement: “Like every other serious reporter covering the now infamous balloon boy hoax, I struggled to pronounce his name ‘Falcon’ correctly and have gotten a kick out of how many ways I’ve heard it pronounced by other serious reporters. Just add me to that list and happy new year!”
You gotta hand it to this woman, she knows how to stay relevant. She’s like Paris Hilton but with a talent.
My friends and I ushered in the new year with fondue and a house party. Of course, I took lots of pics and made a little video. You can check them all out on my personal blog if you’d like.

Kathy Griffin was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and shared a clip of a skit she did that spoofs the Gosselin family. Oh, and she’s got just the most perfect actor on the universe to portray Jon.
“Wah, wah, wah. Here, drink the tears of fame.” She cracks me up!

While filming a sketch for Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kathy Griffin hit up the uber hip and swank pool at the Roosevelt Hotel dressed up as one of our regular targets here at EvilBeet, Ms Kate Gosselin. Hilarious. I actually nearly spit Diet Coke all over my screen when I saw her get up, complete with c-section scar. Apparently the clueless hipsters, rich kids and elderly people that frequent the pool were just as taken aback as well, except they actually thought Griffin WAS Gosselin. “Kate who? Just call me Kathy Gosselin. All I need now is a sexy bodyguard,” People Magazine quoted the funny lady as saying.
