The E! television network has made the sinful decision to fire Kathy Griffin from her role as red-carpet lookeyloo at The Golden Globes. And whatâ€™s worse, they didnâ€™t even have the decency to tell her to her lineless face. Her lawyer had to hear about it when he called E! Prez Ted Harbert to ask whatâ€™s going on with the show.
When Griffinâ€™s people called Harbert, â€œApparently Ted told my reps that the E! red carpet is a puzzle and I am a piece of the puzzle, which is a wonderful puzzle piece, but I donâ€™t fit this particular puzzle and that when I see the puzzle, I will get it. I am a piece that doesnâ€™t understand only because they canâ€™t tell me who will take over.
â€œThey kept saying, â€˜When you see the new puzzle, you will know it is not a personal insult.â€™ I was like, are you kidding? I got canned, bottom line. I canâ€™t even be like Star Jones and be like, â€˜Oh, I have a book tour coming up!â€™
Look, E! you canâ€™t survive without the gay audience and the gay audience canâ€™t survive without Kathy Griffin and Renee Zellwegger going toe-to-toe. Bring back Kathy and pronto! Someone whoâ€™s not lazy like us should start a petition.
