On Ask Andy recently, he was asked what is going on with him and Kathy Griffin. Did they have a falling out? She is never on WWHL anymore and there have been no new specials.
Andy gives a weird sigh of disinterest and says, ” Yeah I know. (pause) Did we have a falling out? Not that I know of. (dumb Andy face) Although you never know. /shrug
The chick says “It’s true you never know with her she could be hating on you right now…”
Andy, “I’m sure she is, maybe she hates me… you never know.” He’s chewing gum. Why does he do that? What is with Americans and their gum?
On WWHL, with Ellen Barkin and Anderson Cooper, Andy seems to announce that Cooper is a bottom, which I am not sure has ever been verified before. This is a show that Cohen called his besties in for because someone cancelled last minute. It’s like three best friends getting drunk on TV. Anyway, this is not a show I would normally recap, although it is good, but I think the topic of Kathy Griffin is going to come up. And I want to know what is going on with Andy and Kathy, because it seems that AC still loves Kathy, but Cohen perhaps not so much. LOL someone just checked Andy for only giving bathrobes to his favorites. It’s so true, I can’t believe he read that. https://youtu.be/isEzM4bZM4E
Okay so the Kathy stuff happened on the damn AFTER SHOW. Here is the gist of it. Someone calls and asks AC what he thinks about Kathy leaving Fashion Police. AC gives a general AC type response, he loves Kathy, and wishes nothing but the best for her and he thinks she will go on to bigger and better things.
Then Cohen jumps in and says “I think it was the pot calling the kettle black..”
AC says, “What does that mean?”
Cohen says, ” She said oh I don’t want to make fun of people. This show is about making fun of people. And the reason everyone loves Kathy Griffin is because she makes fun of people, constantly.”
AC says, “Really? She does it in a different way.”
Yeah, Kathy is nastier about it. She has a mean schtick to her comedy a lot like Joan Rivers did. Very similar comedic styles.
Cohen says if it wasn’t working, just say it wasn’t working. AC says he doesn’t know that it wasn’t working Cohen says “It wasn’t working.” Cohen says don’t making about the body shaming make it about what it was about. AC tries to give his polite responses and finally says that he is Team Griffin and Cohen is not going to get him to say anything bad about Kathy. Cohen denies that he would ever do such a thing. AC says Cohen loves to stir the pot. Barkin is pantomiming heavy pot stirring. AC says “This is what a party at Andy Cohen’s house is like!” He loves to stir the pot. Both AC and Ellen start stirring the pot motions. They both talk about how Andy always invites one or two people who are going to get drunk and get into a heated argument. Cohen doesn’t seem to be pleased with his two BFFs outing him as a shit stirrer and is adamantly denying he does such a thing.
Andy Cohen professes his undying love for Kathy. He says that has seen all her standup specials. They all appeared on Bravo. He loves how she makes fun of Rene Zellweger and Oprah and his wonky eye. He just can’t understand why she would use not wanting to body shame someone as a reason to leave the show. It’s what she does! And of course Andy is correct.
Then AC says if he is being honest he doesn’t understand some of the other people on Fashion Police. Andy says well that’s a whole nuther issue. AC said he would watch that show for Kathy Griffin. Some of the other people when he watched he said, “I don’t get why this person is on television.” WOAH some shade from AC! The Ellen Barkin is all like, can we change the subject?
Who do you think AC is talking about? I think it is Kelly. Because really why is she on television? But it could be Giuliana I guess.
I have been intending to discuss this whole Fashion Police debacle here. I was pretty pissed off about the whole “patchouli oil” is a racial slur bullshit. Patchouli oil is that God Awful smell that all the incense in the 70s smelled like. It’s what the hippies used to mask the spell of pot back in the day. It’s not something that has been relevant for the several DECADES and had nothing to do with black people other than the ones that were hippies. Also during this time in history dreadlocks were popular with the hippies. So whoever is the old man writing for Giuliana on Fashion Police that was the reference. Stupid people who don’t understand things just ASSUME because a young black girl was being referenced that it must be a racist thing. And by stupid people, I mean Kelly Fucking Osborne. Kelly was friends or likes the chick they were discussing who had a shit ton of fake dreads sewn into her stupid head and that was the entire issue.
Then Andy said everything I was thinking about Kathy Griffin’s ridiculous letter about quitting Fashion Police. It sounds a lot like Nene Leakes and her whole, “I might quit RHOA because I can’t tolerate being around mean women who are no supportive.” It’s all bullshit. I left the whole Fashion Police thing feeling less love for Kathy Griffin than usual. Kathy is a bitch. She’s always been a bitch. No one is believing her “I don’t like making fun of people” schtick now. She loves making fun of people. She has become very rich making fun of people. She should own it. And so should Andy Cohen. In this story, he is the pot and Kathy is the kettle. And we like pots and kettles, so just own your damn cookery.
Anyway. I have got to get to the grocery store before whatever I have to recap tonight starts.
I am just going to post this and be done with it after starting it over a week ago…
Also, I added an interview between Anderson and Andy above. Andy says he has tried to get on Teresa Giudice’s email list by contacting Dina but she has not been forthcoming. That’s interesting. Sounds like she may not be interested in returning to Bravo…
Also Anderson and Andy are coming to my hood with their ….whatever it is they are doing. For $350 you can get decent seats and take a photo with them after the show! The cheapest seats are like $75 and it is a HUGE venue.
