Maybe it’s because in high school I had a pair of mustard yellow tights and every time I wore them my dad would point and yell, “JAUNDICE!,” but I always feel a bit hesitant about yellow and orange hosiery. Really, that’s the only thing keeping me from giving Kathy Griffin an enthusiastic “Well Played” for this ensemble. I love the red coat, the oxblood pencil skirt, and even the fun, festive gold heels (she’d just hosted CNN’s New Year’s telecast the night before), and I think it all works together nicely, but the orange-y yellow hose are tripping me up a bit. What say you?
First of all, Happy New Year, you guys! Did you kiss anyone special when the clock hit midnight? Sadly, I was smoochless, but even that’s preferable to the kissing Kathy Griffin and Jenny McCarthy engaged in on New Year’s Eve. Griffin was, as usual, hosting CNN’s New Year’s coverage with Anderson Cooper and thought the ball dropping was the appropriate opportunity for her to drop to her knees – to kiss Anderson’s crotch and simulate oral sex on him, live on camera. (First video above.) Multiple times. As he uncomfortably giggled and covered his manly bits with his hands, pushing her away. Nothing says “2013 is going to be a great year!” like sexual harassment, amiright?
Meanwhile, the makeout session between Jenny McCarthy and a soldier (second video above) was far more consensual — the comedienne has a tradition of picking a random New Year’s reveller to lock lips with. After they were done playing tonsil hockey, Jenny interviewed the lucky fellow — and it became painfully clear to everyone watching that something was going on above his upper lip. Something red and inflamed and … sore looking. Lipstick? Possibly. But many on Twitter thought the dude was rocking a herpes outbreak on his mug. Yikes. [Hyper Vocal]
If you’re a celeb or model posing topless on the cover of a “respectable” magazine, you’ve got to find a way to cover the naughty bits. Behold, one of the more popular magazine cover poses — the breast cupping. It’s a pose that says, “I’m topless! But you still can’t see my nipples! Mysterious.” Kathy Griffin had Jesse Tyler Ferguson do the honors on the cover of the latest issue of Out Magazine. Of course, she is paying homage to Janet Jackson’s 1983 cover or Rolling Stone. Here are 12 more celebs who’ve done the pose proud. [ONTD]
Sometimes I think Kathy Griffin would not have any material if it weren’t for the Palin family. But I don’t necessarily mind because, like she says here in a clip from her “Kathy Griffin: Gurrl Down” comedy special, the Palin family is really effing funny. Here Kathy talks about how she went to Wasilla, Alaska, with Levi Johnston to knock on the Palins’ front door … and could not see one inch of Russia. What the…? [AOL TV] Continue reading
Kathy Griffin is up the Palin’s collective butt again: in this clip from her Bravo comedy special “Gurrl Down,” which airs Thursday night, she has something to say about Bristol Palin‘s “corrective jaw surgery” and alleged nose/eye job. Personally, I think Kathy goes too far saying Bristol’s new chin makes her look like Jay Leno. That’s just mean-ass snarking, especially since Bristol’s new face actually looks pretty. But she got really funny when she read aloud from Bristol’s statement about how her new face was 100 percent medically necessary:
“That’s true because when I had my first face lift it was because I was fighting scurvy. And when I had my eye job it was because I had rickets.”
