Kathy Griffin - Award Winning Sleaze

I have never, ever liked Kathy Griffin. Initially, it was just because I didn't find her funny. At all. The sound of her voice is more annoying to me than that of a chainsaw. She must know she isn't funny, because her obnoxious, offensive behavior serves as a distraction to her lack of talent. She goes around offending people, desperate to keep the fire going. I remember reading about an incident where she made a drug reference to Dakota Fanning when Fanning was very young, drawing the ire of Steven Spielberg. Then there was the time she called Pink the b-word. I wish Pink would have kicked her ugly a-word. When she had that botched cosmetic surgery and was crying and talking about her horrible ordeal, she got no sympathy from me. I watched her for about a minute and changed the channel, but not before noting she was still just as ugly as she was before she had surgery. Anyway, what Griffin does must work for her on some level, somebody somewhere is watching her.

This is what she said, upon winning an Emmy in 2007(sent to me by Mrs. Jovial):

"A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus," an exultant Griffin said, holding up her statuette. "Suck it, Jesus. This award is my god now."

Asked about her speech backstage a short time later, an unrepentant Griffin added, "I hope I offended some people. I didn't want to win the Emmy for nothing."
I believe Kathy Griffin is as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside, and that's saying something. She has no sense of character, no integrity. She is small in mind and in spirit. Her behavior is that of a very, very unhappy person. Think about it - what happy person do you know behaves the way she does? If she didn't want to thank Jesus, then so be it. Why use her limited acceptance speech time to specify who she doesn't want to thank?

Her words and intentional ugliness will come back to haunt her. Let's see how that statuette will see her through it.

Kathy Griffin has never been above the "z" list in my semi pro opinion. she would have tanked, I promise you in every room that that I did coming up. Her goal is to be a female shock jock-Rickles type, but she falls woefully short. Her tactic has been to primarily antagonize because her thought process just isnt that damn creative, poignant or thought provoking in general. And its not about the male locker room /green room thing. Two of the most brilliant talents in and around this city for years were Sherry J. and Lashonda Banks. Either of them or Jodi Borello could run circles around this clown-ess.
