Kathy Griffin Responds To Online Haters

She just posted her State of the Union address.

No R1, she was never funny but I like this kamikaze period.

by Anonymousreply 311/18/2017

She's an insult comic who made a small fortune kicking other women at their lowest points. (Another thread listed her bits making fun of women like Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, etc. when they were under the microscope and having breakdowns) Now, she's a "feminist" leader trying to rally women to have her back? Bitch, please.

Also, she needs to look up "blacklisted" in the dictionary, because she seems to be mixing it up with "suffering the consequences of systematically burning multiple personal and professional bridges." When you fuck over people who were on your side, they don't want to work with you again.

R6. The thing about Joan Rivers is that she always made a point of never saying bad things about someone where she didn’t say worse about herself.

If I were her agent, I'd tell her to start working her ass of on rebooting her public image. She needs to start flying supplies out to Puerto Rico; she needs to help rebuild homes destroyed by fires in California; she needs to hold fund raisers for the victims of Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas. She needs to start doing something for others instead of focusing so much on raising the next buck for herself.

She's not entirely wrong in saying that she has been unfairly treated. But she continues to shoot herself in the same foot with the same gun. She needs to shut up a bit, take a step back, and eat a little crow before she completely buries herself. She's her own worst enemy at this point.

Kathy got a wake up call and she's having a hard time dealing with it. What happened to her after the Trump thing was wrong, but that's the world we live in now. I'm not going to say that she's making a mistake by being so public with this, because I really think this is her laying the groundwork for her next chapter.

Her issue is that she's blacklisted in the US, so she can't decide by herself to do this or that if nobody hires her. That's her point. She can't do anything. Her touring internationally was a good idea, now that the tour is almost over and that nothing has changed on the US side for her, she's freaking out.

She simply needs to give it more time, but alas I don't think someone like her who cannot take a vacation without falling into a depression after three days can think rationally in the situation she's in. Having a blank calendar to her means death, much like her idol Joan Rivers.

I can't empathize with this because I'm the opposite. Fuck, if I had millions in the bank I'd sit on my ass for the rest of my life.

The real reason why Kathy is blacklisted isn't because of her politics as she claims, nor because of some patriarchal attempt to silence a strong feminist voice, but because the woman is emotionally unstable and cannot help but bite whatever hand is extended her way for help. Who would be stupid enough to book someone who's clearly a ticking bomb bag of crazy ready to explode at the slightest provocation? She has shown herself to be completely toxic to the people around her, and her willingness to throw everyone under the bus and blame them for the consequences of her own ill-advised actions goes a long toward explaining why no one is in her corner these days (except her bf Randy, but that's because he's on her payroll!). It's fascinating to realize that after everything that she's gone through, she's so blinded by her own self-righteousness that can't see how truly self-inflicted her wounds are. She is the Lindsay Lohan of comedy, fading deeper and deeper into the limbo where Z-List has beens go to disappear.

I love seeing Kathy making her personal YouTube statements. I think she's great and still very funny. And I do believe she'll be back. However, if she really is blacklisted, I wonder if it would work if she went away for a while and quietly worked behind the scenes working to get back "in." Take a year off and then return. Or in today's entertainment climate, is it too risky to be gone for a year or so? Out of sight, out of mind?

First of all, she's disturbing to look at, and I'm pretty sure she did that by design.

Secondly, she's a gigantic fucking drama queen. Shut the fuck up, bitch. There are people in the world with real problems. She could step away today for good and live a fine lifestyle for the rest of her life. A better one than 99% of American have.

Or, she could've laid low for six months, and then came back slowly. But no, she decided to have a public tantrum and meltdown, that will only serve to lengthen whatever kind of showbiz exile she thinks she's in. It reminds me of those whacked out fan club tapes Mariah Carey made during her breakdown. Which, I believe Kathy mocked with no mercy.

She's an asshole.

She's a mess. If she has received advice on how to handle this well, she is ignoring it. The Trump thing is not the issue so much any more. It's still there, I'm not dismissing it but I don't know if she could have recovered from that or not. Possibly she could have if she had immediately jumped into something else. Had she done something for someone other than herself, as suggested above. Instead she wallowed in self-pity and gave a ridiculous interview in which she cried like a baby and looked ridiculous sobbing over the consequences of her behavior.

I think she sounded her own death knell when she made that idiotic video where she dragged through the mud everyone who has ever tried to help her. She is not capable of the self awareness that would allow her to see that the problem is her. She wants to blame everyone so that she has no accountability. She's too fucked up to see that she crossed the line and, had she handled it differently, this would all be over by now.

The thing about Kathy and Joan Rivers...I believe Joan was her inspiration but Joan would be disgusted by Kathy right now. She would have told her that, instead of acting so pathetic, she should have shown up at that ill-advised presser with that head. She should have said that what should be getting all the media attention is the way Trump is 'leading.' Then she should have downed a glass of wine and tossed that head to the reporters. Joan would not have turned tail and hid. She never did. When she had tough times, she stormed through it and rebuilt her career. Kathy is showing herself incapable of doing such a thing.

Kathy has turned herself in a joke - a very sad joke.

I would have advised her to do this. In a YouTube video to downplay the circus atmosphere. Being stylishly yet modestly dressed. In a calm tone just say: "It was a heated election cycle this year. Perhaps I got a little to emotionally invested in it for my own good. As a comedienne I've always dealt with problems through my humor. It just went flat this time. It's happened before and it will happen again. I want to truly apologize to the president and his family and anyone else who might have been hurt or upset by my skit. Thank you for listening."

THEN NEVER SPOKE OF IT AGAIN. If asked just say: "I've already addressed that it's time for all of us to move on".

She'd didn't ask though.

I agree with the poster who said she should take a year off - or more. Sell that big mansion and take a year or two or three to find herself beyond being desperate to be rich and famous. Joan was also unable to think beyond the next gig and desperation for the spotlight and acceptance. Kathy is rich enough to buy a normal house and still live a fabulous life while never working again (which I'm not suggesting) but she should go away and think long and hard about WHY she does what she does and why she so desperately needs to be on the road working constantly. She seems incapable of chilling and being with herself without the "fame" thing feeding her insanity. She could take a few years to look into producing OTHER people's shows. Or not.

Journalists know other journalists who have been beheaded, and they take depictions of beheadings seriously.

A group of Christians were beheaded by ISIS and our country could do nothing about it.

Some of our contractors overseas were beheaded and terrorists released the horrific videos for all to see about ten years ago.

The people who behead people also blow people up, shoot people, and plow trucks into crowds and kill people.

Kathy can't seem to understand that most people, no matter how much they dislike Trump, do not condone, nor do they want to professionally associate themselves with someone who thinks depicting a beheading is okay.

Why doesn't she get this?

She hasn't been blacklisted. She made herself notorious, so people don't want to hire her.

Blacklisting is when actual lists are circulated containing names of people both famous and little-known who are to be banned from working in a particular field.

In other words, famous people can't be blacklisted, because everyone already knows who they are. The blacklist enables the banning of people who haven't actively offended, which is why it's so insidious. In effect, it tells management whom to hate.

I remember when she would mercilessly out Clay Aiken constantly...before he was ready. It's not like he was making anti-gay comments; he was just a shy kid with a secret who was suddenly thrust into the spotlight. Imagine after hearing kids make those cracks at him during his school years, he had to deal with Kathy making those cracks to a nationwide community. Perhaps Kathy thinks she was helping the community ("my gays") by outing him. But Clay WAS part of the community, and she bullied him in front of the whole world. WTF. Not so gay-friendly.

Kathy was acting like the victim in the media even before the Trump episode. Earlier this year, she suggested that Ellen was anti-feminist because Ellen refused to have Kathy as a guest on her show. Maybe Ellen didn't want to have to endure Kathy's schtick of overrunning the host, and maybe Ellen didn't want to give Kathy any fuel for her act. That doesn't mean that "Ellen doesn't want to help other women".

I'm not Kathy's biggest fan, but I don't think she deserves to lose her career over this. I don't know what the answer is. I think she should try to get a monthly column for an infotainment website, where she would focus on comedy and politics. Do it for free even. Move to Washington DC. Watch a bunch of CNN...uh, better make that MSNBC (to avoid AC); become an expert on politics. Work that into her act. It would be like Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert going on the road. It would be a hell of a lot funnier than talking about the reality housewives.

by Anonymousreply 8811/18/2017

Kathy Griffin reminds me of that other 'comedian' Russell Brand who only 2 years or so ago abandoned a Messiah Complex theme and thought taking taking that theme on tour in the Middle East, South Africa, Europe etc would be a great idea. Specifically, he said figures like Jesus, Malcolm X, Ghandi and how these figures are signficant culturally and how icons are appropriated and used to designate meaning perhaps not in the way they intended.

Whaaaaa?

When quizzed about it on Morning Joe, Brand deflected.

Brand probably realized he was trying to create stand up comedy out of pretty contentious subject matter. Never heard anything more about his grand plan to take this on tour. Silence. Instead, he got hitched and had a baby.

Same thing applies to Griffin. People want to be entertained. Enough with the dragging the enemies through the dirt. I don't think she's got the smarts as reflected in the absence of emotional intelligence, finger on the cultural, political and social pulse-smarts to take her act to the level where it needs to go. Therein lies the panic.

If Griffin was really smart, she'd be 3 steps ahead of everyone and milking it. Instead, she's getting squished like a bug, derided by peers in her own industry by being isolated and tossed to the curb.

Hitting your head repeatedly against a brick wall ought to hurt. At what point will Griffin stop hitting her head and realize she's playing a losing game. And a dangerous one at that.

I am surprised she is unable to secure US tour dates. I happily pay $40 to $100 to see her in my area when my schedule allows. I cannot imagine a significant percentage of her base cares about the transgressive image. It seems to me that tour dates have more to do with security concerns given the instability of deplorables than inability to sell tickets. If so, perhaps she produces a pay per view or Fathom special where security is a null issue.

R66 has the right idea. That's exactly how she should have played it. She'd be touring the US right now and raking it in.

I also agree with R98. The venues are probably more concerned about bomb threats and protests, then whether she can fill the seats.

The people who deliberately overreacted (like you have been) by equating a mask covered in ketchup with an actual beheading really, really need some help.

The mere fact that it was a mask stuffed to make it look like a head does not in any way mean it's just like the journalists or hostages who were beheaded.

KG's photo was in bad taste, but the style of the photo and her own appearance in it recalled 1960s hag horror films and the French Revolution, and little else. She was in an old-fashioned pussy bow blouse without a drop of blood on her. There was nothing, absolutely NOTHING, in the photos that resembled a terrorist murdering an innocent civilian.

But people spoke about the photo as though it were a real head, that it was just like photos of terrorist atrocities, that it was exactly the same as holding up the head of a real dead animal, etc. Unbelievable.

She's been really discombobulated ever since the Fashion Police thing. It was a disaster, from her being outed as having tried to get the job before Joan was even dead, to the dreadlocks joke thing where it looked like she just threw Giuliana under the bus. A few months later a writer on Fashion Police said KG got him fired, and Melissa Rivers was trashing KG in the press about that time, too.

Since then, she's been a mess. I'm sure she's worked herself into a panic at this point. It doesn't help that her sister died and her mother is a Trump supporter. It's got to be tough but she needs to just stop and regroup.

Kathy has made fun of and pissed off a LOT of people, they only needed one thing to pounce (or should I say excuse not to stick up for her) and it was the photo, but Kathy brought it all on herself, no one to blame but her. But knowing Kathy she is just being herself and blaming everyone else but herself. When this all dies down (in a few years maybe), Kathy will blame everyone else again for not telling her not to do it. Same old, same old.

[quote][R66] nailed it. What a pity she didn't have good people like [R66] advising her. But it's too late now unfortunately .

The problem is Kathy doesn't listen to anybody. At her press conference, she ignored her lawyer's advice, threw out her prepared comments, and decided to wing it. They probably spent a week preparing what to do and say and Kathy threw it all out the window at the last minute. She thinks she knows more than anyone else.

And the Fashion Police situation still doesn't make sense to me. She was mad because the show wanted her to say mean things about the looks of women celebrities? Fine. But since she's a comedian she should have come up with something funny to say about them that had nothing to do with their looks. It's supposed to be part of her skill set.

“I just want you guys to know, when I get home, I do not have one single day of work in front of me,” Griffin moaned. “And people that want me to go back and start in [comedy] clubs and do ten minutes again, I don’t mean to be an a**hole, but no. I’m not going to do that. I’ve worked way too hard to go back and work for free and do the club scene again…this is the bulls***, because I’ve been blacklisted.”

Griffin then complained that TV legend Norman Lear sent her fundraising letters and he can’t ask her for money anymore because “my legal bills are through the roof….”

The funnygal said she hoped disenfranchised people would get inspiration from her struggle.

[R114] The whole Fashion Police schtick made no sense to me either. She did throw Guiliana under the bus. If Joan were alive, Guiliana would not have been sacrificed that way. KG was not a strong enough host to be able to mediate that situation. When she decided to leave (or was asked to leave) she gave the excuse that she didn't want to be on the show because it was 'mean.' She didn't want to make fun of the way stars look. Seriously? KG has built her career on talking about the way celebs look, talk, eat, shop, dress....all of that. Yet suddenly, she doesn't feel right.

I believe she left FP because she was bombing. She wasn't witty or clever. Filling Joan's shoes would be hard for anyone. I know KG thought she was Joan's equal but she wasn't/isn't. Joan had a gift and it's because she wasn't afraid to laugh at herself and at the same time, she said what she meant. KG is much too fragile to be able to laugh at herself. She takes herself very seriously. In this business, it's good to take your work seriously but when you start to take yourself seriously, you are sunk.

I think she could still turn it all around, but she needs to back away from touring and all internet enabled devices for a long time before she attempts anything. She needs to just go away, enjoy what she does have, come back refreshed and more relaxed.

In any event, Kathy is obviously emotionally fragile and reactive right now. She does need to take a couple years off, address her psychological and physical health issues, and make a well-thought-out comeback. She is not doing herself any favors with this shrill and manic behavior.

by Anonymousreply 13111/19/2017

She has brought up the fact that she is 57 years old, a few times. In one interview (the BBC one, I think), she said she was 57, in a rushed, somewhat strangled tone.

In connection with that, she is saying it's a sprint for her - not a marathon.

Kathy is freaking out, lashing out, and one of the reasons for this is her strongly held belief that something must be done to rectify her situation, NOW, NOW, NOW.

I'm not even sure what she thinks would help, other than getting more money, playing good venues, and having work as an in-demand comedian as far as her eyes can see. That seems, to me, to be the bottom line, as far as what she actually wants.

I'm still curious as to what brought about that fainting spell on stage in Dublin. Ever since then, she's been on a mad tear across Europe appearing on any talk show that'll have her to drum up more publicity. She repeats the same drivel over and over again, not only interrupting hosts but hijacking interviews. And there a deeply menacing tone in her voice, behind the words.

I find her manner distasteful and not at all entertaining.

As to the fainting, that's extreme nervous exhaustion. As one audience member in Dublin remarked, Griffin's dialogue was meandering, unfocused and not connecting with the crowd.

Oh Kathy, Kathy, Kathy. The time to decide to handle all of this with "aplomb and a sense of humor" is long past. You had your moment at that ill-advised presser where you lost your fucking mind, sobbing about how he 'broke' you. You were not professional in the least and, in case no one told you, that presser was meant to help your career, not bury it deeper. You are doing that all on your own.

I believe KG does have Borderline Personality Disorder. That's why she lashed out at all those people who 'didn't help' her and continues with these sad YT vids. She is screaming for attention. She needs to be the star, to know that everyone wants to make her happy. She hasn't realized I guess that Hollywood, of all places, could not care less if you are taken care of. If you are a comic, you're funny, and you haven't taken a dump on someone's desk, you can probably get some kind of work, especially if you have a pretty good track record which KG did until the Trump pic. KG did the equivalent of taking a dump on someone's desk. Everyone's desk. It's the Jeff Zucker shit that will kill her, though. She can never take back those words and people do not want to work with someone they can't trust. If one is a big enough name and box office draw, a lot of bad behavior will be tolerated and glossed over. KG has never been in that kind of a power position, not even when she was at her peak.

I don't believe the majority of Americans were shocked at seeing that image of her with the ketchup-y mask. We see far worse everyday in the name of entertainment. Some who have lost loved ones to beheading may have been disturbed by it but I don't believe most were. I think the Republicans saw a Hollywood liberal doing something they could use to show how awful and bloodthirsty Dems are and they ran with it. I think that, if she had kept her cool and made the presser a statement of power and bravado, she would not have lost her career. What cost her work is the way she handled the aftermath. The tears, the victimization, the lashing out all show her to be mentally unstable. Who the fuck wants to work with that?

She is in a spiral. Her behavior is off-putting, to say the least, and as people continue to desert her in droves, her acting out will increase. She is hoping that some industry exec will have compassion and give her job. She is hoping that her legion of fans will harass everyone in Hollywood until someone gives this poor little understood woman a break with a network special or guest spot, whatever. The more she tries to grasp at straws the further and faster people will run from her.

There is nothing sexy about the stench of failure.

I disagree. The country was (is) very divided, and many people on the left, including journalists, were insinuating death threats against Trump after the election. There were violent demonstrations throughout the country, celebrities (especially comedians for some reason) were crying and melting down publicly, Kathy's photo WAS shocking to a lot of people because it went one step further, and her timing couldn't have been worse. I believe that if Hillary had won and the right had demonstrated violently and destroyed property in multiple cities, and if conservative journalists were tweeting their hopes for her death and advocating violence against her supporters, and then a celebrity posed with a depiction of her beheading, the left would have lost its mind.

However, once her gay poodles turn on her (Anderson, Andy, etc.) out come the ever-so-sly homophobic remarks of she/her/heiress etc. Now, we get all of the nasty stereotypes: the pink mafia, the random sexual encounters devoid of intimacy, the "mean girls" (to describe grown men.)

They ALL basically pounced on Kathy because she has a very long list (both repug and lib) of people that can't stand her. I still think Kathy can be funny but I wouldn't ever want to work with her, the least thing you did, you would be a YouTube topic.

Kathy says after she has shit on someone in her act, that she doesn't like when a celeb doesn't have a sense of humor about themselves, but, she has zoro about herself. Kathy can give it but can't take a little bit back. If you say something a little bit bad about Kathy, she goes nuts. Look at what she was like when Andy said "I don't know her", look at the shit storm she had after THAT! Kathy has very thin skin but wants other to have thick skin when she talks bad about them and then whines when they don't, but then acts like they tried to kill her when they say something which I personally don't think was bad.

I really do believe Kathy has NPD, all the signs are there.

[quote] She should move to London and get a regular gig on one of those comedy programmes like 'Have I Got news For You', 'Mock the Week', or 'QI'. Mo Gaffney, Ruby Wax and Joan Rivers have all done well in the UK; Griffin's humour wouldn't be out of place.

Unfortunately, I think this is an incredibly bad idea. She's too fragile, and don't think the public really care for her over there. The British press are merciless on people who are seen to overstep certain boundaries, and there can be horrible "groupthink" within the culture. Those other comedians who needed career rehabilitation and got accepted there had a clean slate to start over with, and were able to adjust their acts for local tastes. They won't be welcoming her with open arms over there.

"Kathy can give it but can't take a little bit back. If you say something a little bit bad about Kathy, she goes nuts"

Exactly! The Andy Cohen thing was the most minor dig possible and she freaked the fuck out. I remember on her show when she showed her green dress to Jay McCaroll from Project Runway. She asked his opinion and he told her he felt like green on redheads was a little played out. No big deal. But Kathy acted as if he'd horribly insulted her. Another time she was working with a stylist and kept saying how she was a d-lister. Finally the stylist was like, "I get it. You're not exactly Nicole Kidman." Kathy then proceeded to lose her shit even though the stylist was just repeating what Kathy had said about herself.

r66 had good advice that would have worked early on, but what could Kathy do at this point?

I think she needs to write a book, My Life on the Black List, and then she can book herself on talk shows to promote the book. But she had better be funny, both in the book, and in the talk show interviews. Then, work politics and current events into her stand-up act. Do a tour of small clubs on the US Coasts. Be hilarious. Word will spread.

Who cares about fake Hollywood friendships? Who cares if some of your old friends think that a small club tour is a downgrade. What matters most is what your fans think. And if you really are a true stand-up comedian, you'll be happy to perform anywhere. I don't understand why Joan Rivers was so loved, but she did have an amazing work ethic.

We've heard over and over again that Kathy is smart with money. She's invested well. She's sitting on a mountain of cash. She's better off than most other comics.

But, to quote the late Whitney Houston ... Show me the receipts!

I've known quite a few people who where "millionaires"... until the day they weren't. Unless you've seen Kathy's financial statements it could all be smoke and mirrors. No one talks about financial managers who have ripped them off, or the bad investments that went south UNTIL they're checking into an extended-stay motel because all their money is gone and they can't maintain the illusion.

Everyone compares her to Joan Rivers when she panics about "having an empty calendar in 2018" but I suspect it could be more than just a drive to be constantly working. Kathy might really be in dire financial straights.

She needs to do a Head & Shoulders commercial.

by Anonymousreply 28311/22/2017

Head & Shoulders, R283? That's a pretty major product. You're being generous.

Let's debunk the myth of "The Trump photo destroyed Kathy Griffin's career." She was such a D-list nobody her only endorsement deal at the time was Squatty Potty, who subsequently dumped her.

She had zero TV shows (scripted, or reality) and zero televised stand-up specials in the pipeline. At one time, Griffin was a cast member on an NBC sitcom during the era when the network was #1 in comedy, and had a record number of stand-up specials on Bravo. She derailed her career loonnngg before Trump was even elected.

Her only televised gig was the CNN's New Year's Eve. After calling up network chief Jeff Zucker to demand more money and launching into a profanity-laced tirade (by her own admission, and against her agents' advice) Kathy was effectively a dead woman walking at CNN. The Trump photo was the perfect reason to officially terminate her.

Her other television connection was with the E! Network. That's dead because she screwed over Joan Rivers' daughter AND has spent over a decade gay-baiting "Miss Seacrest" the exec behind the network's most profitable franchises.

Basically, she'd been reduced to being a road comic for quite some time (albeit, a profitable one.)

Her last ditch attempt at re-incarnation is as some feminist, pro-LGBTQ anti-Trump warrior. The industry that knows her ain't buying it. The silence of female comics, who are vocally anti-Trump and pro-women's rights is particularly telling. Kathy Griffin has been burning bridges and spewing poison since the '90's and now it's finally destroyed her.

[quote]Basically, she'd been reduced to being a road comic for quite some time (albeit, a profitable one.)

Even as a comic, her material was starting to wear thin around 2012. The number of truly funny celebrity anecdotes in her act had waned considerably. In her prime, she could fill a show with 2 or 3 great stories, but now (if she's lucky) she has maybe one funny story to tell, then fills the rest of her act with reality TV references no one cares about and stories about her mom's alcoholism--which got old and boring fast.

Without any real celebrity material to dish, she had nothing left...no other gear as a comic to tap into.

Joan was an insult comic, yes, but she also knew how to construct a joke unrelated to some pop culture reference. I don't think Kathy has that ability, which is why--even if she went back and worked the club scene--probably couldn't rebuild her career the way Joan did.

Also, the culture and comedy itself is changing. Insult comedy is looking pretty dated in our current times, so unless Kathy miraculously develops completely new material and comedic style, I don't see how she could make a viable comeback.

The sad thing about Kathy is that she can probably make a comeback if she puts a little effort into it and doesn’t have to rely on producers and bookers to give her the opportunity.

She should hire a young, talented but cheap camera crew to shoot one of her new stand up shows, edit it tightly, and then self release it on her site, iTunes, Amazon, etc. for cash like Louis CK did. She could write another dishy memoir, hire a editor, and then self release it on Kindle and Nook.

She could also start a podcast, and if she can’t find advertisers, set up a donation or subscription plan.

It’s sad because she just seems to be fixated on regaining acceptance in an industry that has already shunned her.

I think this gets to the root of Kathy's problems. Seems like Kathy all her life has suffered from a severe external locus of identity. Always wanting external validation from the cool kids, to tell her she's beautiful, or funny, or accepted--when she should've realized long ago that the popular kids are boring assholes who don't matter in the grand scheme of living your life and learning to love and accept yourself for who you are, on your own terms...even if that means never getting to sit at the cool kids table.

Every open gay person on this fucking planet has had to reconcile with that at some point--to accept who you are despite all the "cool" kids telling you you're broken in some way, shape or form.

This interview with Rosie O really gives you a clear glimpse into the neurosis of Kathy and her obsession with celebrity and wanting to be popular. Being called dog and ugly you're whole childhood obviously left some deep emotional scars, but it's sad that she never came to terms with that and not let her life be dictated by it.

They also get into the Jay Leno stuff. Although I understand why Kathy broke down at his joke, I still think it was fair game for Jay to go there as a comic. Being self-deprecating about your own looks doesn't make you immune to jokes made at your expense, especially when you do the exact same shit to other regarding their looks. Sorry Kathy.

Truth to what you said, r318. I would add what is really making her appear manic and desperate is the realization - cold and brutally abrupt - realization that she came so close to finally grabbing the "brass ring." Dealing with yhe Vanderbilt (and Cooper), CNN NYE appearance, Fashion Police, and the crumbs and albeit meager sponsorships that came from those events.

Griffin lost it all. Lock, Stock and Barrel. I think that is the source of the angst people are witnessing. And the twitter "tears" over missing her mother - is just an another angst-ridden expression of the impact this downfall has had on her level of popularity in the public domain, her highly-coveted A-List status and finally, on a very simple and highly personal level - her ability to see her elderly mother when and where she wished.

All Gone.

She's a cunt. And that's being polite! My sister knew (knows) Matt, her ex. She screwed him over royally. Cheated on him, treated him badly, you name it. Verbally abusive. Then she dumped him for a younger guy, and pretended she broke up with him for taking money out of "her" account. He, meanwhile, got into running and working out, graduated from Columbia summa cum laude , and is an executive director at Laurette International Universities. So, Karma.

A real comedienne would have backed away and kept careful notes of everything that was going on. In about a year worked for about six months on it to turn it into an act. All the while getting rest and taking care of yourself so you look good doing it. After about two years the sting would be off and she'd get a big comeback special on one of those cable networks. She'd have been back stronger than ever. She just wasn't able to adapt.

Her neighbors will no longer have to endure her, as she'll be flying to and fro trying to scrounge up those scarce (foreign) dollars.

The fact is that her talents are limited. But, though hard work and tenacity she was able to find a gimmick that worked for her. And she was really good at it.

But, her fatal flaw of being far too thin-skinned (which is ironic, considering what he gimmick was) is doing her in. Being thin-skinned and being unable to roll with the punches.

I liked her, but her grandstanding is really turning me off. I also think the little behavioral and verbal hints about her having a breakdown are completely calculated to gain sympathy.

To be very clear, I hate Donald Trump. I couldn't care less about her bloody head picture. But, she made a dumb mistake that put some of her associates in a difficult position.

She should have left it at her original apology. Then laid low for six to eight months, and came back with a special or on a talk show talking about the whole experience in a humorous way. But no. She was completely unable to be gracious enough to bow out for a half a year. She assembled that batshit news conference, and begged for pity. "Trump has broken me, you guys" Shut up, you stupid bitch. It was two days after the photo came out. No one "broke" you. You broke yourself.

At this point ZERO sympathy.
