After a second consecutive New Year’s special with Anderson Cooper in which she swore on live television, Kathy Griffin has been blackballed from CNN. Well, that’s a start. Now if only E! would get on board…
CNN executives have decided Kathy Griffin will NOT be getting a 2011 invite. “She was a total embarrassment to the network that calls themselves ‘The Most Trusted Name in News.’ Even Anderson (Cooper, her co-host) thinks it’s time to say goodbye to Kathy,” a CNN insider tells me.
Not only did the potty-mouthed redhead drop the F bomb on live TV, she also made not-so-funny jokes about needing a “bump” of cocaine and asked Cooper if he pleasured himself while looking in the mirror. [Popeater]
Actually, jokes about coke and masturbating in front of a mirror sounded pretty funny to me — but then I imagined them being shrieked by Kathy Griffin, and they were suddenly stripped of humor and my penis didn’t work any more. Thanks a lot, Tranny Bonaduce. Seriously, she looks like Joan Rivers dressed as Danny Bonaduce in drag.
