If your Golden Globes viewing experience seemed a bit empty you have one man and one man only to blame: Ryan Seacrest. Sure you still had the incoherent, drunken Joan to watch, but you know, deep down, you longed for the original Claymate herself, Kathy Griffin. So who really got our dear Kathy off the red carpet?
Hot Stuff has learned that Ryan Seacrest, 31, got comic Kathy Griffin, 44, axed from her hosting gig on E! Says a source, “Kathy has been awful to him” in her stand-up act, so when Seacrest finalized a new deal with the network (worth $21 million over three years), he made sure Griffin got the boot. Her red-carpet replacement? Seacrest, natch!
Even though we know you’re secretly one of us (a Kathy Griffin fan! What did you think we meant?), you’re now on our shit list, Mr. Highlights. But don’t worry about us, we’re peaceful people. Griffin, on the other hand, will probably beat the crap out of you next time she runs into you at the tanning salon.
In all seriousness, this will only supply her with an entire episode’s worth of material for the next season of My Life on the D-list. We can’t wait.
