Kathy Griffin is back whining about all she lost in a new interview and most Americans, even the liberals, think she deserves it.
“When you’re in between gigs and trying to stay on the map, you have to think of ways to stay in the spotlight,” Griffin told the Hollywood Reporter.
Talk about a cheap publicity stunt backfiring.
In a panic knowing she went too far Kathy consulted friends and public relations executives who specialize in crisis management.
They told her:
“I was hearing, ‘Go away for five years,’ ” she says of the meetings. “I was like, ‘I’ll tell you what: You go away for five years.’
Kathy couldn’t get booked in the United States by any venue such was the national outrage over her behavior.
Of her Secret Service interview Griffin said:
“The man asked her if she kept any weapons in her home. “I said, ‘No. Oh, well, I have a sword. It’s huge,’ ” she recalls. “And my lawyers looked at me like, ‘What are you doing?’ The agents got very interested and were like, ‘What is it for?’ And I was like, ‘It’s not for anything. I got it when I hosted the Gay Porn Awards.’ And I have to say, the guy smirked. He was like, ‘Tell me more about the sword.’ I was like, ‘Well, it’s big. You know the gays.’ And then it was like, ‘No more sword-asking questions.’ ”
Classy til the end isn’t she. What a nightmare this one is – but not even Kathy was ready for the worst thing to happen to her.
Her own mother’s reaction:
“She said, ‘I am not with you on this one, Kathy. You’ve gone too far.’”
When your own mother won’t stand behind you have reached an all-time low. Do you think she will ever play a show in America again?
