You’ll Never Forgive Me for This

Posted on | December 9, 2010 | 18 Comments

Of all of the sick, disgusting, offensive things I’ve ever blogged, nothing can top this one. But remember: Nobody can force you to click the link. It’s a free country, and I am not responsible for the result.

If you’ll hit my tip jar, maybe I’ll feel guilty about posting that Kathy Griffin bikini photo from The Superficial. Really, you should blame Wombat, who linked it in “Live at Five” a couple days ago. The reason I decided to post it was that, after Griffin got booed by U.S. troops for cracking a “fat” joke about Bristol Palin, now Bristol herself has spoken out about it:

“The audience’s reaction to this ‘comedian’ spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too,” Palin told Pop Tarts in an exclusive statement. “I hope people didn’t have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms.”

(Hat-tip: Fire Andrea Mitchell.) And there’s also this bit of interesting background on Kathy Griffin:

Just last year, the “Suddenly Susan” star admitted that she fell prey to some serious body image issues while seeking out her “big break” in Hollywood. Not only did Griffin get a nose job at the age of 26 in an attempt to improve her appearance, in addition to liposuction that she claims almost killed her, she also reportedly exercised obsessively, starved herself during the day and binged at night.

Why does Kathy Griffin hate Bristol? Maybe because Bristol’s got something Griffin will never have: A baby.

Also, a bright future.
