Kathy Griffin Didn’t Go To the White House With Dan Choi To, Uh, Protect Her Image

Last night’s My Life On The D-List, the Bravo show where Kathy Griffin pretends she’s still slumming it, sure made it look like she and Lt. Dan Choi got along at the HRC rally in D.C.! Well, until Dan decided to go to the White House.

But how does Kathy explain not actually joining Dan at the White House on that March afternoon? Where he chained himself to the fence? Because if she went, then we’d all claim she did it for the publicity. AS IF.

In the meantime, today Choi and Cap. Jim Pietrangelo, who plead not guilty, have their first day in court.

    So she’ll tell Jesus to suck it, but she is worried about her image??

  • asa1973

    I think she meant her presence would have taken away from the strength and intent of the message. I kind of agree…

  • rf

    she did a pretty good job of showing hrc to be a bunch of aholes. intended or not. so she gets points from me for that.

  • Brandon

    @asa1973: I agree with this. In terms of symbolism, it doesn’t make much sense for her to be there. She could’a plugged it or lent her publicity but her being there was not appropriate.

    Celebrity hosts a protest march in our favor, Queerty finds something to bitch about.

  • Cam


    How did she do that? I missed her show last night!

  • Rob

    @Cam: They followed her to her meetings with congressmen to monitor her language, stood there in silence at every one of her jokes, and threw a fit when she called Jim Clyburn a “queen” and forced her to apologize.

    Nice way to discourage any celeb from ever helping.

    Cheap shot, Queerty. I watched “D-List” last night too and this isn’t what she said.

    Maybe a Davey-Wavey fix will get the editors focused and off the rag.

  • Timothy

    Ummm… actually it was to protect THEIR image. It wouldn’t be taken as seriously if some comedian came along.

  • Clint

    She did the right thing.

  • San Francisco Treat

    Yeah – she didn’t want to delegitimize the event… that’s a good move.

    Wait a sec, the way I saw it go down was he was asking her to attend but she had to host the rally and was uncomfortable because she said she would go in front of the crowd and knew she couldn’t, she had to host the rally. THEN she said it was better anyway, everyone would say she did it for publicity.

    By the way, I do not consider myself “one of her gays” and took some offense in this episode when she called herself an “expert” on gays. You are no expert on me, dear.
