WATCH: Kathy Griffin Is Sorry She’s Not Sorry About Anderson Cooper Faux-Job

Kathy Griffin, in her typical (read: classy) way, addressed the “backlash” over her simulated blow job on America’s favorite silver fox, Anderson Cooper, during their joint New Year’s Eve hosting gig while on The Late Show with David Letterman last night.

Needless to say, the controversial comedienne is not apologizing for it, even though, as she told Letterman, “People are tweeting things like, ‘I didn’t even watch the show, but now I have to explain to my children what you did.’”

Well, that should be easy enough, it’s called comedy, kids. Take a note.

    Why would she be unhappy? It got her booked on Letterman for the first time in a while.

  • Spike

    @Cam: Exactly, she’s no longer funny, just desperate to be shocking. Letterman would have had no interest in booking her had she not initiated such nonsense on NYE on CNN.


  • stadacona

    She is the new Joan Rivers – ugly, desperate, UNFUNNY hag.

    I can’t put my finger on it but at some point KG stopped being funny. It was if it happened overnight. (to me) Weird…one day I found her incredibly funny and the
    next she became uncomfortable to watch. I fully expect to see a show with her
    called Back On The D-List….

    The face job(s), the ghastly makeup, the “I am so full of
    myself attitude”. At 52 she should give it up. Has been.

    A lot of gay men have been making negative comments about Kathy recently. I wonder where she gets the idea that she’s popular with gay men. Maybe hanging out with Anderson has warped her sense of reality.

    She comes across as one of these elite media types who has exploited her friendships with gay men to get a gig in the media business.

  • Kieran

    From Phyllis Diller to this? Yes, America definitely is in decline.

  • DirtyOleMan

    Up to that stunt, I have defended her against the tide. No More! I watched that faux blow job in disbelief and I was as as suprized and pissed as AC360. OK, KG, not funny!

  • smartguyd

    HA, I still love her, I don’t care what you people say.

  • Samuel

    She comes across as the gay equivilant of the gay guy who keeps making passes at people, irrespecitive of weather they are gay or straight without realizing that straight guys are not necessarily enjoying it.
    Rude.. and rather self centered.

  • Creamsicle

    I agree with smartguyd. I still think she’s funny and unlike a lot of female comedians she tries to make her standup more than “My period, my period, my boyfriend…” She gives me a laugh on a rough day and that’s more than enough for me.
