Kathy Griffin Trashes TMZ’s Harvey Levin And Bravo’s Andy Cohen In 17-Minute YouTube Rant [VIDEO]

So this blowing up Twitter this afternoon:

Kathy Griffin released Harvey Levin’s phone number on Saturday, revealing the private information in a YouTube video. The comedienne said she was doing so in retaliation for how he’s treated her. But she also goes after Andy Cohen, alleging he asked her to do cocaine before “Watch What Happens Live.”

The video begins with Griffin slamming TMZ and its role in kicking off the scandal that plagued her earlier this year when she posed for a photo with a replica of Donald Trump’s bloody head.

“It’s not at all over. It’s still going on. In fact, it’s gotten worse for me,” she says. Griffin then plays a voicemail Levin allegedly just left for him on Friday, asking her to call him. She plays the message in its entirety, purposefully so people can hear the phone number that he asks her to call him back on.

Griffin goes on to trash her agent, her publicist, CNN head Jeff Zucker, and so much more.

  • JAKvirginia

    Um, hmmm… is that Kathy Halloweening as Joel Grey in Cabaret!? Wilkommen!!

  • Why is Kathy wearing drag-queen makeup?

    Honestly, I’m getting worried about her mental well-being at this point.

    • S. Parilla

      ???

    • AC

      I’m sure she appreciates your concern

      • Way to miss my point.

    • Ernest Endevor

      Isn’t she made up for the stage? I assume this is before her act someplace.

  • Ninja0980

    For those wondering, Kathy shaved her head as a show of support of her sister who was dying of cancer.
    Mention the other stuff if you want (and there is a lot) but leave the hair out of it.

    • Ernest Endevor

      Did not know that, thanks.

    • I knew that part, but she’s acting very strange lately regardless.

      • Ninja0980

        I agree.
        Her jabs at Anderson Cooper..nope.

        • SoCalVet

          Anderson Cooper is dead to me after this…

        • I dont know how the hatred for Kathy Griffin got on a Trump feed. Regardless if you like her or not, she has a right to say whatever she feels. Thats what FREE SPEECH is all about. You preach, Kathy!

      • SoCalVet

        she’s been targeted by Trump’s goons…you would be acting strange too! jeez

        • ZhyKitty

          Hell yeah.

          I think she’s worried that she will be made to disappear, and it’s probably a legit worry. I feel bad for her.
          Living with the fear and paranoia for such a long time would probably crack just about anyone…. that’s what this looks like to me.

      • HozillaSmallpox

        I think she’s living in fear. People have eviscerated her over her right to expression. Some may be fact or fiction, but I applaud her for being brave even if some of it is misguided.

  • Friday

    I know it’s for comedy purposes, but that’s a truly alarming makeup job. 🙂

    • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

      I think she’s impersonating Guiliana Ranic?

    • Natty Enquirer

      It’s a tad Robert Palmer-Dragon Lady, isn’t it?

  • BeaverTales

    Her heart is in the right place, but her next media appearance should be on “Intervention”, assuming it’s still on the air.

  • Eric Lewis

    Andy would sell his mother if it meant a moment of attention or opportunity to hang on a yacht with a rich famous person. She’s pretty much nailed him for who he is at his core.

    • ClevelandJim

      And she’s pretty much showing herself to be the same kind of person lately.

  • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

    She’s right, Levin and Cohen are scumbags. No regrets. It needs to happen more often.

  • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

    I see the trashfags are comin’ outta the woodwork for this.

  • Jeffrey

    Levin is a scumbag and friend of Trump.

    • vorpal 😼

      Ugh… really? I did not know this.
      I love love love the People’s Court (guilty pleasure – Judge Marilyn Milian is awesome), but Harvey Levin is one of the annoying things about the show, asking incredibly stupid questions of people.

      • Lars Littlefield

        I think most of might agree that Harvey Levin doesn’t do the LGBT community any favors if he thinks he somehow represents us. I’ve never cared for the gossip shit. Griffin is spot on when she points out that the TMZ thing only reports on who’s fat, who’s fucking what, and that women are definitely derided more than men on that weak excuse of TV entertainment. Fuck him.

    • cleos_mom

      Lookee heer.

      Harvey Levin has high hopes for his TMZ “studio,” but he’s “disappointed” in pal Trump

  • greenmanTN

    I hate what happened to her, don’t feel like it was deserved, and some people who were supposed to be friends were kinda shitty about it, could have at least talked with her and warned her what was coming. But Scorched Earth doesn’t look good on anybody.

    • Sean Williams

      Have you seen the earth lately?

    • vorpal 😼

      While I initially disagreed, I’m starting to think that what she did was more and more justified.

      • David Walker

        I wasn’t solidly behind her, either, but then I started to think about the various hateful, racist “artwork” that dogged President Obama for 8 years, and I think the fucking moron got off easy.

        • JCF

          President Obama portrayed and/or encouraged to die a horrible a death was, 2008-2017, was just a day ending in ‘y’…

      • greenmanTN

        Even when the photo came out & some people were outraged I didn’t think it was that big a deal. People were making comparisons to the painting Judith and Holofernes and I thought that was a stretch, but Trump is a public figure, by then a confirmed POS and fair game so far as I was concerned. And bringing poor l’il Barron into it was pure BS, a chickenshit play for sympathy. (I seriously doubt he ever saw it.)

        I thought the teary video was a huge mistake though. She should have just ignored it.

        That said, given the rather rabid nature of the Trumpanzees there is no telling how much hate mail, messages, and outright threats she has received, and that could unbalance anyone.

        • vorpal 😼

          Trump has shown that he will go to any lengths to tear people that criticize him or stand in his way down. Again, this is an absolutely classic case of behaviour in people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

          I can only imagine the stress that Kathy Griffin has gone through since that picture. I think she regrets her apology, but she was probably under tremendous pressure and severe anxiety and trying to salvage her career that was under serious threat.

          • greenmanTN

            I agree.

          • The worst thing about the apology is that it didn’t help. She no better off having made it (and she made it quickly and did it herself, not through a publicist) than if she hadn’t. In hindsight she shouldn’t have bothered.

          • Strepsi

            Absolutely, if she’d have said “It’s art, f*** em if they can’t take a joke!” it would have gone away, apologizing admits the people who were screaming had a point – they didn’t.

          • don

            A lesson all Dems could learn! They could care less- the R’s want us DEAD

        • I saw the photo on twitter before I saw the reaction. I remember thinking “oh Kathy, what have you done now” and then scrolled on past it. I didn’t favorite it or retweet it but certainly didn’t think it was that bad especially in context of the things regularly done to images of Obama and Clinton. Also, I’m a longtime fan and it would take more than one picture to change that.

        • perversatile

          ”People were making comparisons to the painting
          Judith and Holofernes”
          Well… if by ‘people’ you mean tragically rigid individuals
          with a morbid world view who identify with Hoofernes and could not possibly imagine ”he had it coming” then sure,
          it’s a stretch, but lets call them ‘people’.

      • Robert K Wright

        Why is it more justified? Why is trashing people with intimate info a good thing just because you’re friendship is on the rocks? Cooper nor Cohen have done anything to damage or limit her career, she did that all on her own. They both have their own carreers to consider, but it seems that Kathy only thinks that it’s HER career that is important. She made a poor choice initially, and now she’s blaming everyone else, except herself, for the fallout. Perhaps she should have tried to let the dust settle, but this is her m.o. she has turned on everyone in her life at every turn. Just look at her path of destruction and how her entire career has been made. It wasn’t because she was ha ha funny, it was because she trashed famous people.

        • vorpal 😼

          I was referring specifically to the photo of her holding the Trump mask.

          • Robert K Wright

            Wasn’t sure, thank for the clarification.

        • another_steve

          Robert, I agree.

          The “beheaded Trump” thing represents, in my opinion, the greatest judgment lapse – by anyone – of the 21st Century to date. Yes, there’s a lot of justifiable anger directed at Donald Trump – but civilized people keep that sort of “humor” in-house. They don’t go public with it.

          As a celebrity she made a tragic error and now has to pay the price. She needed to apologize for her lapse in judgment, but didn’t.

          Feh on her.

          • Jeffrey

            You’re wrong on both accounts. First of all she did a very public apology. Which she shouldn’t have done because she wasn’t wrong. And the beheaded trump pic was nowhere near the greatest lapse in judgment in this or any other century. In fact it was a ballsy. Certainly more ballsy than anything Trump has ever done.

          • cleos_mom

            But I’d give him points for dramatic effect.

            ” the greatest judgment lapse – by anyone – of the 21st Century to date”?

            worse than the war in Iraq! worse than the Shrub’s handling of Katrina! worse than last November’s election! worse than calamity unfolding in Puerto Rico!

            Holy fucking shit, this woman is worse than Trump, Kim Jong-un and Ivan The Terrible combined. I

          • Jeffrey

          • Dazzer

            For a cultural Jew, you’re pretty fucking Puritan in some things, another_steve.

          • another_steve

            We Jews are the most practical human beings on the planet.

            We’ve been through all of it. Done all of it.

            Obey us.

          • Dazzer

            LOL

          • Can’t think of any greater lapses in judgement at all? None? Really? If you honestly believe that, I’m amazed that anyone listens to anything you say.

        • romanhans

          Nope. The right wing is brilliant at creating scandals where none exist. Obama’s three biggest scandals: “bowing” to a foreign power, not saluting a soldier, and wearing s tan suit. All HORRIBLE, REPREHENSIBLE things, according to the Republicans. And somehow they play the media so scandals appear.

          That’s exactly what happened to Kathy Griffin. Nobody with a brain thinks it was scandalous. If Fox News honestly believed it upset Barron, they wouldn’t have shown the image a dozen times a day for a week.

          The media is responsible. The “left wing” NY Times won’t call Trump a liar, and Trump has had so many scandals they seem to ration them. If he does ten asshole things a day, print ten articles. If they’re bad, revisit them. The media doesn’t. The Vegas massacre is gone. The government emails on personal accounts is gone. Niger is gone. When these are Democrats scandals — Hillary’s emails, Benghazi — they NEVER go away

          In short (too late!) the government and the media are against the truth. The end.

          • gaycuckhubby

            I thought it was scandalous and crass and stupid.

          • Strepsi

            You’re right in that the far right plays the media like a violin. Liberals (pretty much by definition) are not dogmatic, and strive to take other views into account… but those are TERRIBLE attributes if you’re making propaganda.

          • Robert K Wright

            Yeah, sure, SHE didn’t have anything to do with it, right. You’ve blamed everyone but the Illuminati. And yeah, it is pretty scandalous for a comedienne to hold up a fake bloodied had of a President. Just as it was scandalous when they hung effigies of Obama. Either he either she thought it was an egregious mistake as well, or her blubbering apology video was bunk. She seems to be sorry for being sorry. And she’s a shitty friend. To do something and then blame everyone else for the backlash.

          • romanhans

            You’re comparing a photo of a bloody rubber head with a Trump toupee slapped on top with effigies of our black president lynched and hanging from a tree.

            I don’t really need to argue. I think summarizing what you said is argument enough.

          • Robert K Wright

            If you only disapprove of the ugliness towards on President, then you are the problem.

      • The people who acted outraged on the right said nothing when tshirts and coffee mugs with similar photoshopped images of Hillary Clinton were being sold at Trump rallies. They didn’t mind that one bit. So no I don’t think it was that bad. It’s not something I’d have recommended that she do. It wasn’t a good idea, but it was hardly the worst thing anyone has ever done.

        • gaycuckhubby

          I’m not on the right and I was offended by the photo. I am also offended by the violent Anti- Hillary imagery. I applauded Hillary for calling out people like that as Deplorables

        • cleos_mom

          We live a few miles outside a small town (pop. 2200) and I occasionally have the poor timing to park behind a truck with an image of “Hillary” and a caption: “Does This Ass Make My Truck Look Fat”?

          Someday I hope to see that truck broken down on the side of the road. And drive right by.

      • JWC

          Hope you are having a nice day!

      • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

        She’s a comedian making an artistic statement.

        I didn’t love what she did, but wasn’t upset by it. Look at the covers on Der Spiegel (sic?) magazine.

        And meanwhile, Sebastian V (for Nazi) Gorka has called for Hillary’s literal execution [for the many times debunked crime of selling uranium] and he’s on news shows being interviewed at a credible former administration member.

    • skyweaver

      I don’t know much about her experience, I haven’t watched the video either as sometimes I don’t want to see another story, having dealt with it in my own life. I can say that wisdom often comes later. Sometimes you just got to get the poison out, and while it’s coming out you don’t particularly care about how you look.

      • greenmanTN

        True. God knows I’ve burned a few bridges, gleefully at the time. A few I regret, a few I don’t. But when you’re trying to maintain a career in show business, perhaps attacking powerful people in the industry isn’t the best idea, since it makes potential future business contacts wary of you.

        • Andy Cohen turned on her well before the Trump/head pic. I’m not sure what happened. He seems to have been butthurt about the time she made fun of his lazy eye, but surely that wasn’t enough for this. He made a lot of money from her reality show and comedy specials. I really don’t know what happened.

        • skyweaver

          That’s absolutely true. I agree. Sometimes the bridge burning is the price people pay either purposefully or without thinking. Maybe for her what’s most important is just to be seen and doesn’t care what happens.

          • another_steve

            I second that, skyweaver. My take on this current episode is this:

            She senses that she’s toxic and that few in her industry will touch her now. Her only hope is to go full-controversial and get her name and face everywhere.

            As Donald Trump might say – sad.

          • Strepsi

            You’re right about full-controversial. The weird thing is, the apology – and now whining about people being “vicious” – are so OFF BRAND for her. SHe’s supposed to be the bad bitch who tells it like it is, damn the torpedoes. Her hero (and mine) Joan Rivers would have said “fuck you, move on” – and people would have.

            I think the sad thing is how small-c conservative all media outlets in the U.S. seem to be. You can say so much more on BBC than you can on E or TLC or whatever, and that’s wrong.

          • another_steve

            One of the things I hate most about our American TV is the censorship. Not just the visual censorship, but the verbal censorship.

            Canadian and British cousins reading here, please know this: When we here in the states get your extraordinary TV productions on our public (presumably non-commercial) TV, they still censor it for content.

            Shameful.

            I’ve written to them and complained.

          • Dazzer

            They used to censor them on your subscription channels, too. The original Tales of the City that was shown in the US was nothing like as ‘out there’ as the UK broadcast. I know this because I worked on the publicity for the British side of the production team and couldn’t believe what wouldn’t be shown on US TV.

          • Strepsi

            Neutering Tales of the City was the first crack in the process of PBS bowing to the right. It was a terrible decision.

          • another_steve

            Anyone who reads my dreck here on JMG knows my views on censorship. I’m 100 percent opposed to it. I’m an absolutist in this regard.

            Political speech, for example – however vile and heinous, and provided there’s no overt incitement to violence – should never be censored or obstructed.

            In my opinion.

          • skyweaver

            It’s not at all the same story, but I just saw a documentary about George Lazenby, the one-time James Bond. I didn’t know this, not being a big fan of the series, but he walked away under his own power because he knew it wasn’t for him. I just sort of admire people who do, in whatever possibly tortured, inelegant way they are able to, something that means something to them. Even if to everyone else it’s too much or not enough or boring or please-shutup-Kathy-go-away. This is a little O/T but I keep thinking about it.

          • another_steve

            I think I hear you.

            On a certain level, I respect Griffin for asserting herself.

            In Yiddish, we call that “chutzpah.”

      • Robert K Wright

        No, the whole problem is she created a shit storm with something she knew her media friends would have to decry, and then bitches because she got what she deserved. Some friend she is, she’s shit on everyone she’s ever worked with when she didn’t get her way. Someone else can be “her gays” now, chances are they’ll be third rate “influencers” going forward. She has every right to say what she wants. But Ninja0980 is correct, burning every bridge down only leaves you without options. And a lot of her former fans, like me, won’t ever watch her again, she’s the “hag” every gay man fears, she spills all of your business when she doesn’t get her way.

        • robindaybird

          It’s this – Anderson is a journalist, he can’t condone her stunt, not if he ever wants to work in a respectable news entity, and while he would have no need to work, he clearly loves his job.

          She has the right to feel upset and hurt, but she can’t honestly expect everyone else to throw themselves to the lions to protect her, she made her bed, she can lie in it, but her doxxing and using nasty, homophobic insults is showing her to be another Alec Baldwin, a fair weather supporter.

    • vorpal 😼

      She is currently on tour and her show is selling out and doing very well, from what I’ve heard.

    • DuaneR

      I don’t think she cares about her career any longer (which I think was awesome). Some truths need to be spoken – no matter the personal cost. Perhaps “we” should reevaluate her willingness to do so, and interpret it differently. Perhaps – then – this might be seen not as bitterness or anger, but as strength and/or sacrifice.

  • Michael R
  • Pat Padrnos

    Well – this has gotten very ugly. I don’t even know anything about the people she is referring to – so can not comment on that.
    I have not ever been a fan of hers as I don’t like the harshness. But – all people in comedy have their own style. I recall once going to a show that featured Don Rickles and finally had to get up and leave because of the profanity/crudeness. No. I am not a prude. He is great at what he does and has so many fans – but some things are just hard to look at and listen to.
    Kathy’s style is certainly her own and she has a right to do it the way she wants – but sometimes there are repercussions.
    I wish her well and hope she comes through this ok.

    • JAKvirginia

      I’ve read a book or two of hers. She manages to get into places and talks straight up to many people “behind the scenes” and “off camera”. I believe she knows a tremendous amount of “dirt” in Hollywood that she has been mum about. And I’m sure she knows others who know even more. She’s hurt right now and venting, but she may still be pulling her punches. If she ever fully lets loose…. whoa.

      I’m just glad it was calm enough yesterday for me to get up onto the roof to take care of the pre-winter woodstove flue sweeping. Hate the job, but it has to be done or else it costs us a couple hundred bucks to have a pro do it.

      • Lars Littlefield

        Ugh! The worst. We’ve got three fire places and one wood burning stove. I try to do them all at once when the weather is still warm. Then I jump into the irrigation pond afterwards and float around the rest of the day to soak off the soot and drinking beer.

        • We have just the one woodstove, but it’s an extra high stack (vaulted LR ceiling) and the task of cleaning the flue is complicated by the fact we have a metal roof. Climbing that is SO much fun.

          Anyway, we have a brush and a set of six fiberglass poles I screw onto the brush one three-foot segment at a time as I force the brush down into the flue. Can be pretty rough going as the brush is a tight fit (as it’s meant to be), so my back and shoulders get a good workout. And yeah, no matter how careful I try to be, I still end up with soot smudges everywhere.

      • Ninja0980

        We did the same.
        The hubby spent the day clearing up the roof (I hate heights) while I did the yard.
        Better to take care of the leaves we have now versus four days of heavy rain.

    • Treant

      Us, too. Two inches of rain between late this evening and Monday morning.

      The only reason it’s not a warning is that it’s too early. 🙂

      I took the opportunity to inject 15 pounds of calcium into the gardens to replace what I used up and threw away.

      • Is that how much calcium is in the bones of a buried human body? Did not know that.

        Sorry, I know, bad taste but I couldn’t help myself. 😉

        • Treant

          Uh…half a buried body.

          Look, I have trouble with spinal breakage on older bodies, OK?

      • vorpal 😼

        Send some down here.
        We don’t even get two inches in a year, usually.
        (Referring to rain, of course :D.)

      • Ninja0980

        Put some stuff on our yard even though we’re going to use mulch as well.

        • Treant

          Ain’t nuthin’ wrong with that. I have three inches of mulch in the gardens, but regularly soil test and re-balance resources for optimal growth and blooming for both the lawn and the garden.

  • Do Something Nice

    I think the nonsense over her photo with the head of Trump was bullshit. That she is ostracized because of that and Trump is still president shows how fucked up our values are.

  • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

    A quick google search.. proves her right about Harvey Levin and his support of Trump.

  • sisterfalconer

    Don’t forget Levin is a Trumpsucker.

    • cleos_mom

      No big deal here, apparently.

  • PopstarPecker

    I like Kathy and have appreciated her comedy over the years. I’m seeing her as being in distress in this vid. I’d like to see her more settled with this whole subject….maybe sink out of sight on an EU tour or something? I just want her to be OK.

    • SoCalGal20

      She’s on tour now out of the country. So hopefully being out of the country will be good for her.

    • About a year ago I tweeted something kind of clever to Debra Messing and she retweeted it. Her haters came after me for about 15 minutes before they got bored. (The best part was that they were attacking me as if I were part of some Hollywood elite but really I’m a semi-retired not-that-successful opera singer who was washing a few loads of clothes in a laundromat in Texas.) I rather enjoyed it because it didn’t last long but then I wondered what it would be like to get this kind of hate coming at me all the time (which Messing was getting from leftists at the time). That does not sound like fun. And then death threats from people who might follow through or at least might show up in ways that are threatening. Kathy has been under constant threat of physical harm. I also didn’t know they came after her mother. Maggie should be off limits. For one things she’s over 90 years old and also she’s NOT a liberal. How vile a creature do you have to be to go after an old woman who can barely get around any more with death threats. Or her relatives who didn’t have anything to do with that photo in any way. That the deranged people we’re dealing with. No wonder she seems stressed.

  • White Canary

    Yikes

  • Kenster999

    I watched the clip of Andy Cohen. Remember that the TMZ people (and similar paparazzi) walk up to a celebrity and try to act all buddy-buddy with them, like they’re the celebrity’s best friend, and they’re just having a friendly chat — all while hoping to get something salacious. It’s really offensive IMHO. It seems to me that Andy Cohen was just taking the piss of out of the paparazzi. His repeated denials were so *obviously* ridiculous and over-the-top that he was clearly d*cking with the paparazzi. In this instance, at least, I would cut him some slack. He did a good job of giving the paparazzi nothing on her. She was unwise to turn it into a controversy.

  • Cuberly Deux

    Sorry but doxxing ain’t cool Kath. Yeah, Levin is a schmuck, but nobody deserves doxxing.

    • That was my feeling, after watching the whole thing.

      She ABSOLUTELY has a point, bringing up the sheer hypocrisy, misogyny, and assault-enabling going on in every corner of American culture. Levin deserves to be hounded from the public commons…and in all likelihood prosecuted for what he’s done.

      But what purpose is served in giving out someone’s phone number?

      Becoming that which we hate and adopting their tactics isn’t how to win, not and have any kind of dignity or moral righteousness afterwards.

      • Do Something Nice

        They gave out her number, no?

        • No.

          And even if they did, doing the same in return would still not be excused.

      • Cuberly Deux

        The other day I was at the checkout and looked at some of the mags. On the cover of one of them there was a full color pic of Tom Cruise’s very young daughter. It was repulsive. To plaster that poor kids face on that rag with some sensationalist headline was way over the line if you ask me. Tom Cruise is an adult, he can handle the gossipy shit but come on, leave the kids alone.

    • I agree with your point. I also think that there are mitigating factors in this circumstance. Paparazzi thrive on the exploitation of personal lives and people’s personal information. Levin’s made millions exploiting people. Yet, I tend to believe that two wrongs don’t make the situation better.

      • Cuberly Deux

        I’ve never been one for the gossip rags, I think I watched a TMZ episode once and thought it was puerile trash. But yeah, paparazzi are the worst, bottom feeders.

    • jruffdc

      What’s doxxing?

      • safari

        It is when personal information about someone online is released publicly.

        When you release someones personal contact information with the intent for people to troll or harass them. ie; someones phone or address or employment info.

  • Robert K Wright

    She complains about how her “friends” treat her after having spent the last twenty plus years shitting on all the people who once thought she was their friend. She’s getting what she’s dished out for decades, and she’s worse that those she’s angry at. I don’t care how terrible Trump is, the devapitated head of a President was too far, and she knew it would cause trouble for the friends she’s now bitching about. What, exactly Kathy, did you expect Cooper to do when you created such a shit storm. He stuck his neck out to get her the CNN gig when no shows would have her. She’s a bag of dicks.

    • kareemachan

      And you know all about her. Right. Sure. You betcha. BS.

      • Robert K Wright

        Uh, yeah. I’ve seen every special, every reality show she’s done. Her life is a fairly open book. If you haven’t understood that, then you haven’t been paying any attention. As this video shows, her personal life is all out there, by her own design. Don’t be ignorant.

  • SoCalGal20

    I listened to the whole thing on the drive back to my house. Like her or hate her, she has receipts. And she’s absolutely right about Harvey Levin. I don’t know about Andy Cohen but I’ve heard some of the comments about him. As for how her management treated her, I have no idea if what she says is the complete truth but having known people in the business and the stories I have heard (not about her specifically) I wouldn’t be one bit surprised. Anyway, I wish her well on her tour. It sounds like it’s going well.

    Hindsight is 20/20 and all of that but what she should have done, imo, is owned the photo and then hired a civil rights attorney and taken the government to court. But with her sister dying at the time and everything she just may not have been up for that battle then.

  • JWC

    I support Kathy 110%, always have always will. She has added her half to the hypocracy from the fallout of an OK, but ill perceived prank .( i thought it was funny then, funnier now). However the chicken shit plastic press catered and crumbled to the thin skinned Trump press machine . They have set out to hobble and destroy her, I would say, with a modicum of sucess. She has foraged on, good for her. I think now, for Kathys sanity and well being , let the dogs lie. All, or more, has been said that has to be. She has matured in finding who her friends are and what is an enemy. Let it go and focus forward Kathy

    • She’s never going to be rid of this. She’s going to get the Jane Fonda treatment from the right for the rest of her life. She’s going to have to have a thick skin and keep moving forward. In fact, I can’t think of anyone better to go to for advice about how to ignore that haters than Jane (who she’s met).

      • Goodboy

        When Trump goes down her misfortune will change.

      • JWC

        Exactly, eventho she may never ‘spin’ this to a positive she does not have to accept it as a negative

      • JCF

        “She’s going to get the Jane Fonda treatment from the right for the rest of her life.”

        Just recently saw JF on Ken Burns’ “Vietnam”: what she did was far, FAR worse (Seriously, I confess that I always thought the “Hanoi Jane” thing was overblown: I was wrong. It was terrible.* I do understand she has apologized). Holding a rubber head of someone so widely disliked as Drumpf doesn’t begin to compare.

        * She posed, all giddy, w/ a *real* anti-aircraft gun, while *real* POWs shot down by those guns, were being tortured a few blocks away! Dafuq. That fucking war drove EVERYBODY insane: pro-war and anti-war alike…

    Was disgusted by Cohen’s “I Know Nothing” Schtick. He’s a fucking vulture (w/o the manners).

    But I also suspect that—for one reason or another (innate or induced)—Kathy Griffin may be struggling w/ mental illness. Girl, no shame in getting help.

    • SoCalGal20

      Her sister died recently so she’s been under a lot of stress. She’s on tour now so maybe taking a break from the U.S. for a little while will help.

      That seems a LITTLE more needed.

  • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)

    She call the Cohen video “vicious”? LOL. This a person who makes her living going on stage “viciously” trashing people. I don’t care one way or the other about these rich prvledged assholes, but she needs to learn to get as old as she gives. Frankly she sounds mentally ill and she needs to reflect on way she only has “former friends”. Team Andrea. By a hair. I guess.

      With no reliable information to go on it does no good to speculate. It very may well be Manafor’ts mailman for all we know

    • The_Wretched

      I expect the charges will be small guys on the edges. That’s how these big things start. Clean up and pin down the margins. The next round gets more substantial etc. The question is where does it stop.

    • Max_1

      It was the DC district court that oversees crimes that happened in DC…
      … Comey was fired in DC and that firing was OBSTRUCTED from the Oval Office.

      … Just sayin’.

      • I know, it’s what I noted late last night when I realized which jurisdiction it was.

        NYC could encompass anything, even prior to Don the Con’s candidacy.

        Virginia, one of the two places a grand jury was impaneled, would tend to cover individuals not in the administration—like Manafort, Page, Stone and others who appear to have been in on the conspiracy. Possibly Flynn if the angle they were going for involved his lobbying and undisclosed/illegal foreign payments.

        But like with Manafort, if they were going to nail him on money laundering, FARA and/or sanctions violations, I would have thought those charges would come from the VA GJ.

        DC would imply this is post-election stuff, more likely post-Inauguration. There, the list of possibles is much closer to home:
        – Flynn = Lying on security & financial forms, lying to investigators
        – Don Jr = Lying to investigators
        – Kushner = Same as Flynn, but still serving
        – Cohen = Lying to investigators, possible sanctions violations
        – Sessions = Lying to Congress and to investigators
        – Donald = Biggest fish of all, and we know all the crimes he’s alleged to have committed, the list of which grows longer every day

        So I dunno. After I decided to lean against it being Manafort for the reasons I outlined above, I still thing the next most likely target is Flynn.

        – Served in the administration
        – Lied on forms filed with the executive branch, DoJ and FBI
        – No question he gave false statements on a number of occasions
        – Asked for but did not receive an offer of blanket immunity for testimony, suggesting the Feds already had enough evidence to indict back in April
        – Speculation he did or would flip, but coverage in the last six months suggests he’s not been cooperating.

        The next most likely from a circumstantial viewpoint would be Kushner, who was caught REPEATEDLY lying on his forms. Main reason I don’t think it’ll be him is purely strategic. The day he’s indicted, much as many of us here would wish for it, would trigger a shitstorm of apocalyptic proportion. I don’t think Mueller or anyone else can indict Kushner without being damned sure the results would bring down Donald himself.

        • Max_1

          How many hundreds of contacts did Kirschner leave off?
          And, how many times?

          • I know. His exposure and criminal liability are HUGE. But short of Donald himself, I think he’s the 2nd biggest ‘get’ for prosecutors. The clearance and financial forms are just the technical violation; obstruction and conspiracy are rather larger in the context, and there’ve been numerous reports of Kushner trying to do deals with sanctioned nations & banks.

            But once he gets his indictment, like I said, the shitstorm will be unlike any this country has seen. We *will* immediately be in a Constitutional crisis and questions of presidential legitimacy if, as is expected, Donald issues an immediate preemptive pardon.

  • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

    It sounds like she’s acknowledged that everyone abandoned her after the photo. It sounds like she learned that none of her friends turned out to be true ones. It sounds like she learned that everyone wanted a piece of her for their own personal gain without considering her welfare. It sounds like she learned that no one she thought would forgive ever will.

    She owned up to what she did, she apologized, and didn’t protest the consequences. And now it sounds like she has nothing left to lose and isn’t going to leave the room quietly.

    I don’t know how I feel about her. I don’t know the whole story. Time will tell.

    Levin has been Pro Drumpf since the beginning also he has propped up that evil Kardashian klan for years so he deserves to be doxxed. Kathy is also correct that Cohen DH series is demeaning to women and portrays them as drunk wig snatching harpies. The coke thing meh.

        I met Anderson in a gay bar in chicago bout 10 years ago. I noticed that he was drinking a Heineken, shorter than me, which is saying something and either incredible shy or arrogant.

      • SoCalGal20

        I think with Anderson she was really hurt personally by what he did and so she’s lashing out at him. Maybe not the most mature reaction but she’s human.

        Not surprised about Andy Cohen.

        • Ninja0980

          Andy Cohen makes shows that highlight all the negative stereotypes about women.
          And (sad to say) there is a LOT of misogyny against women in the gay community.
          Him being that way doesn’t shock me at all.

        • Cuberly Deux

          He was actually on his way back, yeah I know, after that pedo vid even. He’s on his book tour but alas, as is bound to happen, that Buzzfeed article showing his close ties to white supremacists….DOH!….that’s what’s sinking him now.

          There is a big question out there though. Will the Mercers continue to back him now that he’s been outed as a damn nazi?

            Why not? They seem to be.

    To me, this comes across as a very rash overreaction to Andy Cohen trying to be clever (something he should always avoid) yesterday. I get her cumulative anger, but the cocaine allegation is really careless. I doubt she has proof (other than her word) and he may feel that he has to legally respond, if only to leave Saint Anderson unsullied by association (too late).

    TMZ has become successful by one-upping trash, like National Enquirer. I have never watched it, or read it, and never will as it’s beneath my dignity. What goes around,…

    For me personally, this only cements Kathy Griffin as a force who is willing to put herself on the line, as she did with Trump’s head, to bring down the machine. The machine built upon the subjugation of the gullible disenfranchised; women, people of color, the poor, 🏳️‍🌈,…

    The machine was built to corrupt, distract, disarm by tossing out shiny objects. Fuck TMZ and fuck the machine that incorporates it.

            No bones about it, I follow some celebrities but it’s their work I like not their personal foibles. Well, as long as they’re not harming anyone of course. But still, I don’t feel the need to break a sweat investing energy into a celebrities personal life.

        • I get updates from LeMonde. I’m not sure how, but they always seem to break celebrity passings before any of the American media outlets. And I don’t have slime myself with trash like TMZ to get those updates.

          • edrex

            maybe because celebrities always seem to die in or near paris.

          • More likely many of these events happen while everyone in editorial for US media outlets are asleep. Respectable media outlets want to verify a story before they publish. If you’re TMZ you don’t have to worry about whether or not the story is true so you can just run with it.

      Sometimes I go the Grove in West Hollywood. It’s an outdoor mall. There’s always an army of Paparazzi wating for some D list celebrity to make an appearance while pretending surprise. Watching the BS is worth it though.

      She shaved her head to show solidarity with her cancer stricken sister. She’s also mid 50’s in Hollywood. She’s been pulled.

    • SoCalGal20

      I think it’s actually the makeup there that’s that’s not helping. I assume it’s probably stage makeup since she’s touring now and so it’s really heavy.

  • gaycuckhubby

    It was a stupid stunt meant to be controversial. Now she’s upset people reacted.
    Get over it Kathy and try to rebuild your career.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      I don’t think it’s that simple. Yes, it was a stupid stunt, but I believe the reaction to it was overblown and highly dubious. Anderson’s tweet response was so pearl clutching it’s a wonder the strand didn’t break. Personally, I think she’s just venting her frustration and she’ll bounce back. She’s not my cup of tea, but I can understand why she’s more than a little pissed.

      • bambinoitaliano

        Not very different the way Hillary Clinton was treated just for the fact that they are women. Dog whistle for sexism. Gay men are not immune to playing the sexist roles when it serves their purpose.

        • I love dim sum

          Hillary Clinton is treated the way she is because she is a Nixon-grade sociopathic lying narcissist, not because she has lady bits.

          • seems like someone needs a hug.

          • I see the dense is strong in you.

            And I see the ability to retort is incredibly not strong in you. Stick to selling cars.

            A hug won’t help dim. He’s the cranky mean old man yelling at kids to get off his lawn.

            I’m a cranky mean old man now ? So far I’ve been told I’m a bot, then a Russian agent, then a Macedonian troll, now this.

            Sounds like all of you are just projecting.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    While I’m not a huge fan of hers, I have to say that given what she did, how it was overblown, how she didn’t shy away from any of it while her “friends” and others chose to throw her under the bus, she has every right to scorch the earth a bit. The most dangerous person is one with nothing left to lose…and something tells me, this is just the beginning.

    • Ninja0980

      Cooper was damned either way.
      Others I can get her being mad at but not him.

      • robindaybird

        Yeah, and frankly if I was a famous person who pulled such a stunt, I wouldn’t expect my friends to trash their own careers to cover my ass – that’s incredibly selfish of her to expect Anderson to do so.

  • Zach Powers

    What do Harvey Levin, Andy Cohen, Jeff Zucker all have in common???
    One thought comes to mind:
    “Napoleon complex” is a theorized condition occurring in people of short stature. It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behavior, and carries the implication that such behavior is compensatory for the subject’s stature.

    Good for her. About time somebody stood up to the bullies.

      Kathy is just as much of a bully — and without self awareness at that. That’s her bread and butter no?

  • gaycuckhubby

    She made a mistake by not reading her audience.
    She should pair up with Bill Maher and tour. They can be outragous, say anything and have adoring fans by the thousands.

    • I love dim sum

      She has a lot in common with Bill Maher, they are both neoliberal millionaires.

  • I love dim sum

    She really needs to go away, her little stunt which was on par with a 15 year old edgelord just gave more ammunition to the Trump supporters, they just use it to claim that people on the left are violent.

    I don’t want her on my side, she’s just another millionaire neoliberal.

    • DuaneR

      The 15 yo is in the big chair in the big ole White House. You need to go away. Go and have your own effin dim sum.

      • I love dim sum

        Kathy Griffin was behaving like Milo Yiannopoulos, that photo was on his level.

        Imagine all the shrieking all of you would do if somebody did that, but with a mock-up of Hillary’s head.

    • Mike

      She’s a regular liberal. Milo’s a nazi. Nazis are much worse than just about everybody.

      • I love dim sum

        No, sorry, posting edgy photos just to get attention is on the level of Milo. And she’s not particularly funny or clever either.

      Wether or not Cohen and Cooper supported Trump they iltimately did not support Kathy That was based on percieved personal career damage and the all mighty buck They just tossed Kathy under the bus and walked away whistling a merry tune

        Me three. I miss her humor.

        Not everyone’s cuppa… but I adored it.

        • Ernest Endevor

          Did you ever see her live?

          • another_steve

            No.

            I can only imagine.

          • Ernest Endevor

            Too bad. the act was brilliant. You can sort of see it in the London Palladium video. And she seemed to sort of forget the set-up herself. But, there was a small band onstage. It looked like she was going to tell a few jokes, sing a few songs, we’d all have a nice time. Then this diminutive dervish came roaring onstage, and she really wanted to get to the act but before she could she just had to tell us this one piece of gossip before she began because it was killing her to keep it bottled up. That led to another, and another, and the intended act was forgotten under an avalanche of her observations/jokes about her world. And she was filthy! It was glorious. All done with so much energy I couldn’t figure out how it was she didn’t just fall down. But then, after it was over, she went to her dressing room to change, fix her hair and make-up, and come back out on stage to talk to the group of people who’d been invited to meet her. I’d had some slight contact with her and got in touch with her assistant who arranged house seats for me when she played nearby. So we went to meet her. And she was adorable, funny, sweet, and totally engaged. And she’d just done this blistering show! How the fuck did she manage it? Then she was going to get in a car and be driven the couple of hours to the city! But she spoke to everyone, then had her picture taken with everyone. Her crew were a bit confused when I said I didn’t need to do that but I was happy to watch such a display of total professionalism. I was almost more impressed by that than her act. Almost.

          • another_steve

            Thanks for your personal recollections, Ernest. Enjoyed reading that.

            Rivers and I were both born and raised Jewish in Brooklyn New York. I connect with her “shtick” possibly because of that shared cultural background.

            She was far from PC. I can be that way too. Her humor was sometimes brutally honest, sometimes caustic. I respected her for that and the way she dealt with criticism of herself and of her comedic style.

            May she rest in peace.

    Hope to see you out again, but with bangs!

    • another_steve

      Thank you. The current look is a bad one for her.

      (Absence of gay male advisers, that.)

      • Lazycrockett

        She just isnt wearing a wig.

      • -M-

        She shaved her head in solidarity with her, now late, sister’s cancer treatment. It makes her eyes incredibly striking, and had a serious 80s Annie Lennox pow before it had grown out this much. I believe she still wears a wig in her trademark style during her performances.

        • another_steve

          I was unaware of that background.

          Thank you.

  • andrew

    I thought that Kathy being nasty and bitchy was just part of her comedy routine. Apparently not.

    • I just find it ironic, that most comedians live very angry bitter lives. They seemed to happy and enjoyable while they are performing. Once they are away from the stage or the camera, they resort to their angry selves. There are many comedians who seemed to be very nasty in real life..

      • Dazzer

        I’ve booked and worked with a lot of comedians. And I’ve lived with a couple.

        A common thread with all of them is that they’ve been depressed to some level.

        That said, I’ve liked most of the comedians I’ve known.

        • Helen Damnation™

          I must agree; my upstairs neighbor in Louisville was a talent producer; he had a gay friend who was a fabulous clown/comedian. But when he turned it off, he was hopelessly depressed.

  • Sálmur

    I’m in no position to tell a woman what to do with her life, but personally, I would have let this go. Go high, not low, right?

  • KaBoomBOX

    Full nuclear option.

  • Mike

    Kathy Griffin has balls to stand up to those bastards terrorizing her for the sake of the demented orange pig. I believe her, that showbiz is kind of a conspiracy of fear, with everyone a fish frightened of the bigger fish gaining on them, doing awful things if they think that’s what the bigger fish wants from them. (See: Harvey Weinstein). But Kathy is fearless. I love her more than ever. I’d boycott Bravo and CNN in solidarity, but I don’t watch that crap ever. And that goes double for Anderson Cooper, the disloyal twerp.

  • gothambear

    i’m not a fan of Andy Cohen at all but he was clearly fucking with that idiot tool from TMZ about Kathy Griffin – what a bunch of drama about nothing. much more worried about what this president is doing behind the scenes with jeff sessions while throwing up smoke screens about JFK, Uranium, trick or treating kids of the media etc. Meanwhile our rights are vanishing one step at a time with each judicial appointee. trump is the master of obfuscation and deflection

  • TomDaBomb

    Harvey Levin is a gay Trump supporter that uses his power and influence to further the Insane Trump agenda including the anti gay agenda???????? Fuck this guy! No more re TMZ for me.

  • I am sorry, but she is having a meltdown. She was stupid to pose with the bloody President Cheeto’s head. No matter her politics, she is an entertainer, and she has to be at least street savvy, that having a picture like that published is going to get her backlash..

    Harvey Levin is a pretty horrible person, but let karma take care of him, for jumping in bed with Trump, and I think the Mercers, given he has taken a pretty kind eye to Trump since the 2016 election..

      • cayliffe

        She seems very inarticulate and frenetic to me. Even without knowing if these allegations are true, it’s very bad juju to do this in public. Love you Kathy, wish you the best. Kathy, please listen to your publicist and/or your closest friends. Stop, take a mountain hike and think about your career. We love you. Most of us do not think you did anything wrong. Stay cool and stop feeding the trolls.

  • 2guysnamedjoe

    Griffin, Levin, Cohen, Zucker, TMZ. So many tempestsI have absolutely no interest in, all in one teapot.

  • Just Noh

    couldn’t get through this whole thing, but…hilarious that she dissed people for being misogynistic. her entire act is degrading and belittling people, usually women. her dregs drag makeup is startling enough in the evening, but wow. amazing that apparently everyone she ever worked with had it out for her. everyone! yeah, she made a misstep and now perpetuates it by attacking all within her experience. bad judgment followed by colossally stupid judgment. i know some of “her gays” will still support her, but she lost mine years ago.

  • aagold76 .

    So- THAT explains why Cohen always looks so manic/wired on TV….His trying to pretend he didn’t know her in airport recently when TMZ asked about her- ah, HE asked Anderson about their friendship on his show a month or so ago….. What a tool!!!!

  • itsnwman

    Kathy, YOU rock! Keep it up girl, I am one of your gays and I know you can do no wrong. Rock on. #METOO the sh*t out of these phoney no talent shells.

    Tell me again, why it’s is that THIS weekend we are talking about Kathy Griffin?
    Just think of the cyber-shit-storm if she’d taken the knee during her video.

    • Robert K Wright

      Pretty sure we’re talking about her because she seems to have released a video. Lol. Gotta ask her why it was this week-end.

  • leastyebejudged

    She’s gross and her fans are gross and her entire career and profession is gross, so even with very low expectations she still managed to nauseate me.

    • M Jackson

      What exactly is the entire profession that you find gross? Least ye be judging, and all.

      • M Jackson

        I see what you did! You tricked me into commenting. Curses!

        • leastyebejudged

          There is nothing good about reality tv.

          • M Jackson

            Every season of “Project Runway”.

          • Robert K Wright

            That’s not the same thing. Competition shows are not the same thing as “Follow me around and watch my train wreck” programs. I honestly don’t think anyone really considers Project Runway, or Master Chef type shows as “reality tv”. They are more like game shows.

          • M Jackson

            You’re right. I do like a good competition show and I’ve never spent a minute watching a housewife unless she was on “The Price Is Right”. I’m still not sure who the kardashians are except that I watched one do pretty well on “The Celebrity Apprentice”.

  • She looks deranged in that photo.

    • Outlaw Woman

      Does nobody else see her doing a “Joan Crawford”????

      • octobercountry

        That’s the first thing I thought!

  • jruffdc

    She was very well spoken in the video. Harvey and Andy, and media executives in general, are scum with no ethics or redeeming qualities unless you like Andy and his cross-eyes.

  • Dave_in_PDX

    I’m sorry, but Andy Dick is actually a DICK. I’m kind of glad Kathy called them out on their shiz. I don’t watch TMZ anymore. Levin is disgusting IMO and I boycott anything and anyone that supports Trump.

  • Dunkerblinker

    Cohen is a douche. This will be the first year I avoid the CNN new year.

  • Leo

    Good for her. None of this is new to me or surprises me.

  • DanimalChgo

    I’ve been a fan of hers for years, however if she’s giving out Levin’s phone number, that’s doxxing. If it’s bad when men dox women to further abuse them, then it’s also bad for women to do it back.

  • SilasMarner

    She has gone from a bad situation to an unrecoverable career crashing with her lastest rantings. So sad, I really kinda liked some of her stuff.
