Griffin Dishes on D.C.

kathy_griffin.jpg Comedian Kathy Griffin sat down with CNN’s Larry King this past weekend and spoke on a variety of topics including reminiscing about her March visit to Capitol Hill.

“I learned a lot about how things work on the Hill,” Griffin told the host. “I’m doing a lot to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. I did get in a little trouble with a woman called [Rep.] Michele Bachman [R-Minn.]. I sort of got kicked out of my first Senate hearing because I said something to [Sen.] Saxby Chambliss [R-Ga.] she didn’t like.”

(As you’ll note, Griffin purposely referred to Chambliss as a “she.”)

Chelsea’s Handlers Mishandle D.C. Media

If we couldn’t have Chelsea Handler, couldn’t her handlers at least have given us her petite sidekick Chuy Bravo? The nerve. E!’s late night talk show host was in town this past weekend for a performance at DAR Constitution Hall and for a book signing at Borders for her new tome with the ever classy title, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. Our sources tell us Borders PR set up media interviews only to have them canceled by Handler’s handlers. Comedian Kathy Griffin was far more accessible to D.C. media during her recent visit, with handlers treating press to a variety of interviews.

As reporters know, sometimes handlers are the worst part of the show.

What is Up with Kathy Griffin and Levi Johnston?

After their appearance together at Sunday night’s Teen Choice Awards, Levi Johnston was Kathy Griffin‘s guest as she filled in for CNN’s Larry King. “Lets just kiss and tell,” Griffin opened the Q&A. From there, it just gets bizarre… watch for yourself.
