In “Kathy Griffin: 50 & Not Pregnant,” the comedienne discussed the “Palin Army” that has invaded her life (via social media) with threats following her many jokes at the Palin family’s expense.
One Sarah Palin supporter wrote, “literally, ‘I’m coming to your house tomorrow to murder you,’” said Griffin during the stand-up special.
But she noted, “The Palin Army probably could never really survive against the Gay Army. Because we don’t need guns. We have sarcasm and we have snark and we have our verbal [beep] rapier wit and, dammit, that’s how we conquer.” Read more… Keep reading »
“You know, Kathy Griffin can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she’s kind of this… She’s a 50-year-old adult bully is really what she is… She’s kind of a has-been comedian and she can do those things to me. I would just ask for respect of my children. As she had stated on CNN that her New Year’s resolution was to destroy my 16-year-old daughter, that takes it a little too far. Kathy, come up to Alaska and pick on me, but leave my kids alone.”

Kathy Griffin, who maybe sort of had a fling or flirtation or something with Bristol Palin‘s ex, Levi Johnston, had some unkind words about Bristol during VH1 Divas Salute the Troops monologue this weekend.
“She’s the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight … She gained like 30 pounds a week, I swear to God. It was fantastic. She’s like the white ‘Precious.’”

This weekend at VH1′s Divas Salute The Troops concert, Kathy Griffin gave the troops an eyeful in a camo bikini, a machine gun ammo belt, and black lace-up boots. The comedienne is 50 years old, so there’s probably a lot of people who think it’s a great accomplishment she’s got a body to rival Hugh Hefner’s barely-out-of-high-school girlfriends. However, earlier this year at the Grammys, she told TV host Giuliana Rancic how she got her “slammin’” body: “It’s frustration and starvation. I’m cranky all the time and I’m hungry all the time.” (And Rancic replied, “You look good! That’s all that matters!” Facepalm.) While that may be a bit of hyperbole (she is Kathy Griffin after all), I’m inclined to believe a 50-year-old does not have a body like that without there being
some a lot of truth to her statement. Keep reading »
