Kathy Griffin Crapped All Over Joan Rivers’ Legacy, Says Melissa Rivers

Kathy+Griffin+Joan+Rivers+Comedy+Central+Roast+vueQ996zaXJlMy biggest complaint was the feeling that she kind of shit all over my mother’s legacy in her statement on leaving. And I know that was not an intentional reading of it, but that’s how I felt. …By calling the comedy and the style of it old fashioned.
