Today’s Definition Of Random Is Brought To You By Kathy Griffin Dragging Don Cheadle, And Him Dragging Her Back
I pretty much forgot that Kathy Griffin’s career hit the shit can when she posted a picture of her holding up a “decapitated Trump head” (aka a Michael Myers mask with the carcass of a Garfield doll taped to the top and covered with ketchup), because so much has happened between then and now, and my brain can only hold a certain amount of fuckery. But Kathy Griffin has not forgotten, and she also hasn’t forgotten those she believes didn’t stand up for her including Don Cheadle. Yesterday, Kathy shit on her “friend” Don for turning on her back then, and he let her know that the half of the “best friends forever” heart pendant she thinks he gave her must’ve come from a different Don Cheadle, because “You Got A Friend In Me” is not a song he’s ever sang to her.
Pull up a chair by the fireside, it’s time for Kathy Griffin to regale us with another dramatic story from her Big Book of Famous People Feuds. She’ll just flip past the chapters titled Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Demi Lovato, Kevin Hart, and the Secret Service, all the way to the one marked Ellen DeGeneres. If there was even the slightest chance Ellen might bury the hatchet and dance with Kathy on her show, it’s definitely dropped down to 0% now.
Kathy Griffin is still on her “Ignore That Teary Press Conference, ‘Cuz I’m Not A Bit Sorry For Looking Like I Was Ready To Decapitate POTUS” comedy tour. At last night’s stop here in Boston, she received a visitor who has been way more effective at scaring the president. Because this gal’s got what we like to call THE RECEIPTS.
Talented actress and pre-presidential adultery pay-off recipient Stormy Daniels dropped backstage to wish Kathy well. The ladies took a lovely photo together (seen above) for Trump to include in his scrapbooking efforts after he leaves office, and Kathy left this lovely tweet, via Deadline:
@StormyDaniels it was an honor to have you at my Boston show tonight. I support you 100%! #FuckTrump
And to that hashtag, Stormy replied “Sure did! Here’s the canceled check!” No, she tweeted politely back:
Thank you so much! #teamstormy had a great time!
Nobody tells Kathy Griffin what she can or cannot talk about in her comedy routine. Even more so since she’s become something of a First Amendment activist in the wake of her bloody Trump head stunt. Too bad she doesn’t think Kevin Hart deserves the same freedom of speech. In an interview, Kathy called Kevin a “pussy” for not doing Donald Trump jokes “because he’s a black man”. Oh Kathy, Kathy, Kathy.
The Wrap reports that Chloe Dykstra, who is an actress, cosplayer and daughter of an Oscar-winning special-effects guy, wrote an essay for Medium where she accuses an unnamed ex-boyfriend of being a controlling and abusive asshole. The story was unlisted, because I guess she wanted this to be a quiet revelation, but this is the new technological era where nothing is left unlisted for long.
Because I love to start my mornings off with sunshine and rainbows, I read the whole essay. And it. Is. Not. Fun.
The source of many a nervous twitch in the Trump White House, Kathy Griffin, is – much to the chagrin of the red states – back in the U.S. with a new comedy tour even after she shocked everyone by holding up a decapitated fake Trump head. While she already spooked what members of the Trump administration bothered to show up to this weekend’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, she managed to pop by daytime TV and tell Wendy Williams that she doesn’t think she’ll ever make amends with former BFF Anderson Cooper.
