Pop Culture . . . whatever

Kathy Griffin managed to get herself in the headlines TWICE last week!!

Way to go Kathy!

Ok. I forgive you for your temporary attachment to Kate Gosselin and I assume your stand-up proves that you were kissing-up for material. Mean, Kathy, so mean. Kate Gosselin is a single mother of 8, count ’em, 8 children. You have to know when she laughed at your spoof she was burning up inside. You had lunch with Kate and “the bodyguard she’s banging” and, I imagine that Kate didn’t think that was funny one bit.
You are forgiven, as if you care.

Kathy used Levi Johnston for a publicity stunt. She first took him to the Teen Choice awards (after all, he’s still a teenager) and he was on her show this season. Now that Levi and Bristol are re-united, Kathy gets the chance to show her heartbreak. Poor Kathy.

In other Griffiin news, Kathy said that Scott Brown’s daughters, you know, the ones that he tried to pimp out at his victory speech, were prostitutes. So, the man is “speaking out” and making it a bigger deal than he had to. Now Kathy tweeted this last night:

haha,Scott Brown is the Spencer Pratt of the US Senate.THIS is a great time 2 come c me live. OF COURSE I’m lovin all the publicity LOVIN IT

. . . . . oh how I wish I could see her live.

Today on the View Elisabeth Hasselbeck is blowing a gasket. She called Kathy “Scum.” Smart move, Hasselbeck. Smart move. I don’t think you can have a battle of wits with Kathy. Good luck with that.

With a borrowed hairstyle and bikini-ready body, comedienne Kathy Griffin was a dead ringer for the famous mom of multiples at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood while taping an upcoming skit for Jimmy Kimmel Live.

She was walking around the hotel and people actually thought she was Kate,” says an observer.

Who played Jon in the skit (set to air next week)? Original Star Trek fleet member George Takei.

Kate who? Just call me Kathy Gosselin,” Griffin tells PEOPLE. “All I need now is a sexy bodyguard.”

Then I went looking further and I found this on

Paula Dean and Kathy Griffin

“My Life on the D List” was hysterical tonight. It started with Kathy not winning the Grammy. She knew she wouldn’t win. She looked great in her blue dress but it was very non-eventful.

Kathy and team Griffin go to Savanna, Georgia to spend the day (and night) with Paula Dean. It was so fun to watch. Paula Dean, whom I don’t watch much, seems so friendly and down-to-earth.

Kathy wanted to rape her son. That was awkward. Kathy can try to make drama/funny in any situation and I think she just teased the single son because she can. Paula’s gay assistant, Brandon? F-U-N-N-Y!! He was smashed drunk and just a riot. He would jump at Paula’s bellow, not unlike Kathy yells at her team, and he was saying that Tom is creepy.

They looked like such a great group of people to hang with. I was having fun watching. Paula had Kathy and her team work in her very busy restaurant. The best line of the show was when sweet southern woman, Paula Dean, said, “Watching yo’all tryin’ to work out there is like watching a circle jerk!” Circle Jerk from a sweet lady. Funny as hell.

Not all reality TV is trashy. Some is just good fun!

My only question is why did Kathy and Michael McDonald share a room? Are Tiffany and Tom a couple now? I would think that Tiffany and Kathy would share but I guess since she’s an “employee,” Kathy would rather stay with her friend.

Kathy, Chelsea, Letterman, Carlin . . . Paul McCartney

I love Kathy Griffin. I’ve loved her since she was on “Suddenly Susan” with Brook Sheilds. She may be offensive to some but she has never offended me.

Chelsea Handler, one of my favorite comics, has offended me in the past but I get over it if it’s not constant and repetitive (the whole Fat baby thing bugs me and she said something else that recently made me wince). I’m also over David Letterman making stupid jokes. I swear, this guy is practically on his knees saying he’s sorry. Let’s move on already! Boycotts? Get him fired? Pickets?

He made a mistake and read an inappropriate joke. Should he fire the writer? Maybe, but if he does he’s not taking responsibility. He’s not taken responsibility, quite a few times, somehow, I don’t think Mrs. Palin is done trying to “destroy” David Letterman. Good luck, Lady.

Kathy’s Show, “My Life on the D List” is anything but! Who else gets the list of all the Grammy voters phone numbers and gets to call them and ask for their support? Also, she spends quality time with stars like Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin  . . . hardly D list. I know it’s her “shtick” but some people really dislike her and don’t understand that she’s really “made it” and the D list reference is a JOKE.

Predictably, Kathy didn’t win the Grammy for best comedy album (“what’s an album, mommy?”) George Carlin. Really? Did she ever think she had a chance? We all know that George Carlin IS THE BEST STAND UP in the world. It was a no brainer (oh, and he died last year, that too).

It still was fun to watch Kathy and her “team” groval for votes. THAT’S good reality TV. Of course it’s “scripted” to a point but she’s fun to watch and I would see her live if I had the chance (or money to go, a babysitter, and a friend who wanted to go with me.)

I wanted an excuse to post this picture. 🙂

Chelsea Handler is playing here next weekend. I would go see that too but, same crap. Bla bla bla. The last concert I went to was Paul McCartney. I bought my friend a ticket and her teenage daughter babysat. Very expensive night but I wasn’t going to miss Paul McCartney. He waved at ME!! Really, just me. I know it because he was looking at me. 

On “Chelsea Lately” tonight they, once again, discussed the Gosselins. They showed the watergate clip and Josh Wolf was the only one to “get it.” Chelsea was quiet. She hates kids so she didn’t say squat.
