Out Of The Running

| Filed under: Barbara WaltersKathy Griffin

katattaaahy.jpg

Kathy Griffin just shot herself in the foot!

A contender to be one of the new View co-hosts, the comedienne is talking smack about Barbara Walters.

Why would you trash someone that's your potential future employer????

"I'll just say that Barbara Walters is a very complicated woman," says Griffith. "I like her but she doesn't get me at all. She doesn't even have any pretense of getting me. I don't play up to her or anybody because I don't know how. My mother is always yelling at me to kiss ass! I'm really trying to learn. I wish I could tell you, 'I know how to get Barbara Walters into the palm of my hand.' But I just don't have that ability. That's why I always get into trouble."

Awww, Kathy. Kathy!

Maybe that's why Ellen doesn't want you on her show???

Barbara recently told me, 'They think that we're very good together.' I answered, 'Yeah, Barbara we're like a very fucked-up buddy cop movie.' That sums up our relationship," she says.

Well, at least Kathy's not desperate for work. She doesn't need The View.

We hear she may be headlining at Madison Square Garden in NYC soon. Not too shabby!

    I like Kathy but I think she is a wrong fit for the View.

    Why would she want to hang with those old greasy hags who aren't funny,just sick?

    Well, nobody seems to like Barbara-even though she is a HUGE icon for some reason. She reminds me of that cranky lady in the old folks home that expects special treatment.

    GOOD FOR HER. THATS THE REASON WHY THEY SHOULD HIRE HER. I HATE WHEN THESE GUEST HOSTS COME ON AND KISS HER BUTT AND AGREE WITH EVERYTHING SHE SAYS. ITS FAKE AND BORING. VIEWERS SEE RIGHT THROUGH THAT SHIT TOO.

    THEY SHOULD HIRE PEREZ TOO, HE TOLD IT LIKE IT IS. DIDNT KISS ANY BUTT AT ALL! HE EVEN CALLED ELIZABETH A BITCH TO HER FACE. I HATE FAKE PEOPLE AND PEREZ WAS REAL, WHETHER THEY LIKED IT OR NOT!!!!

    First of all, that quote isn't really smack talk on Barbara, I don't think. It strikes me as her saying that she likes Barbara, but she gets the feeling that Barbara thinks she's sort of a freak and so she doesn't quite know how to make Barbara eat out of her hand.
    Second of all, I have a feeling that Barbara is a cut-throat, two-faced bitch who has tricked herself into thinking she's a real journalist of sorts.
    Now THAT'S talking smack on Barbara. :)

    I can't help but think that Kathy would hate it after a week. Although I'd love to watch her chew up Elizabeth every day…

    Kathy doesn't need the view. She's too edgy for them anyway.

    The View is such a snooze fest. I think she's better off without it.

    Good for Kathy! That lady has balls!

    The View sucks big-time anyway, and they've been doomed ever since Rosie left. I might watch it if Kathy is on, but now I won't have to put up with the horrid Hasselbeck to see the hilarious Kathy.

    But Perez, are you sure these comments put her out of the running? She said similar on Larry King.

    I LOOVVE Kathy Griffin I think she is not only a hilarious out spoken women but competely stong and the way she has handled the struggles in her life are admirable

    kathy is HY-sterical live. I don't like her TV show that much but if you can see her live show, do it.

    And she's always ragged on Barbara Walters. She's not intimidated by her which probably is why they are good together. But then again, neither did Rosie.

    Rosie and Kathy are pals…I wonder if she would feel disloyal if she took that job?

  27. Poppy says – reply to this


    27

    I'm sorry that was horrible

  28. La Loahn says – reply to this


    28

    unlike you perez she's not desperate to be on the view. it was hilarious to see you begging every day like you had a chance and then watching them rip you a new asshole when you were on. LOVES IT

    If Kathy gets The View gig it would be a better show justs because of her!!!!

    Don't mess with Barbara. She paved the way for female broadcasters. It's unfortunate that now she's slinging mud on the view.

    Kathy says it like it is, and thats what I love about her. She will do just fine without The View job.

    33

    Barbara didn't "get" Ross the Intern" — The women on The View didn't "get" Perez. Rosie stirred it up and got ratings. Kathy's right — and she's not dissing Barbara and I'm sure Barbara knows that. The woman is 70+ years old, of course she's a little challenged in "getting" modern culture. Go Kathy!

    Kathy is FABULOUS!! She would be hilarious on The View.

    35

    The best thing about Kathy is that she doesn't keep her mouth shut!!!! I'de love to see her on the view but let's face it Barbara is getting up there in age. Kathy would have to tone it down so Barbara won't be shocked into a real fainting spell. But then again I'de love to see her rip Elizabeth a new one. :D

    She was bagging on Barb weeks ago on her show. At least she's honest about the fact that Barb didn't come across very friendly. I think it would make the show great.

  38. Amy says – reply to this


    38

    Come on, don't call out Kathy. Let's face facts here: Barabara treats
    Kathy with pure contempt. Her treatment of Kathy on the View was
    just full of petty distain!!

    At least Kathy is genuine. Barbara is as phoney as they come.

  39. amma says – reply to this


    39

    Kathy is fucking awesome… Barbra Walters is a stupid bitch, and the view sucks…

    kathy is so much better than that.

    And why doesnt ellen want her on her show?

  40. sv says – reply to this


    40

    I watched this week's show last night. I kept pausing and rewinding just to watch certain parts again. I agree: Kathy's way too wild card for The View, she is just what The View needs, and she would hate it, and document hating it, almost immediately. I think she is fabulous! Ellen? Well, Kathy would steal focus just being herself, that's for sure….

  41. Bryan's BF says – reply to this


    41

    Everytime the Hassel-BITCH talks, I just want Joy Behar to turn around and slap the shit out of that little *$%@.

    Maybe Kathy can do that.

    42

    Kathy's too good for the view…I think it would be career suicide if she hosted. That place is like the bermuda triangle….anyway, she is doing just fine on her own. I saw her live last weekend in Fort Worth, she's AWESOME!!!!

  43. Team Rosie says – reply to this


    43

    I don't think the view has the money to hire Griffin. But it doesn't matter. As long as the dumbest person on the teevee is on the show, I'm not watching. I am gonna wait until ABC runs off BW too. I can't stand to watch that two faced bitch.

    I LOVE KATHY. SHE IS HILARIOUS AND SHE IS TOO GOOD FOR THE VIEW. IT WOULD HOLD HER BACK. SHE IS A BEAUTIFUL PERSON INSIDE AND OUT. I DONT THINK SHE WAS TRASHING BARBARA AT ALL, SHE WAS BEING HONEST AND RESPECTFUL.

  48. Coco says – reply to this


    48

    Kathy is FABULOUS!! She would be hilarious on The View…but if she got it I hope she would continue to do the show on Bravo

  56. katarina says – reply to this


    56

    I dunno, I think BW will appreciate the honesty in what she says, and I really hope that Kathy gets the View gig. She is actually just telling the truth about BW, and Kathy remember I can house sit forya !!!

  57. Kathy Fan.... says – reply to this


    57

    Kathy vs. Barbara would be so much better than Rosie vs. Elizabeth!!!! GO KATHY!!!! Good for you for not changing who you are and what you represent for Ms. Walters! Do your thing!!!! I hope you get the gig!!!!

  58. muah says – reply to this


    58

    Good for Kathy!!! Barbara is a bitch. I don't care if she paved the way. She is still an old bitch.

  60. Brownbear says – reply to this


    60

    Stop being so two faced Perez, I know you are not the type to kiss any ass either. Kathy doesnt need to kiss Barbara's ass and neither do you so stop. Do you really want to be on that show everyday? I cant stand Barbara's rigid, know-it-all attitude and point of view, Didnt you see how she treated Ross from the tonight show? She doesnt like the gays.

  61. Kay Kay says – reply to this

    I looooooooooooove her show–screw the view!

    Kathy Griffen effin rocks!

    62

    Is it just me or does it seem like the only Reason Barbara Walters is anybody is because she just happend to be one of the first women newscasters. I can't say that I've ever thought she was particularly good at anything. The view NEEDS somebody to bring a little bit of Shock to it. If they can't handle somebody like Kathy then they may as well close up shop. Kathy is hilarious, and works better in a group situation than Rosie, I think she would be HUGE for the show. Woopie and Kathy together on there would be GREAT! Of course that might point out that Joy Behar isn't as funny.

    63

    THE VIEW CREW CAN GO SUCK A BUTT HOLE! KATHY ALREADY HAS A GINORMOUS HOUSE AND THE EUROPEAN CAR AND HAS BANK TO BOOT! I'M A STRAIGHT FAN OF KATHY AND SHE IS TELLING PEOPLE HOW SHE REALLY FEELS UNLIKE OTHER HOLLYWEIRD MOUTH-TO-BUTT JOCKEYS AND HAS NO NEED TO KISS ASS WHEN SOMEONE ELSE WILL PAY TWICE AS MUCH TO KISS HERS!

  64. Alerp says – reply to this


    64

    I'm sure she's doing fine financially to be appearing in that show. I love her dishing out on everybody. She doesn't need to be in The View.

    Fuck Barbara Walters! I love Kathy Griffin. She always says what she wants, and the View would hamper that. Don't do it Kathy!

    i think kathy is great she says what she thinks perfect and she doesnt need the view!!! plus she'll love this!!! shes on perezhilton.com! come on she craves this!

  67. JAXSTER says – reply to this


    67

    Kathy's team is probably reading these comments so I'll make it good-You don't have to kiss ass Kathy! People who love you appreciate that about you-so don't listen to your crazy mom she's probably half in the bag when she gives you advice anyway-LOL!!! The view is great for exposure but you'd be censored and they'd make you alter your personality for the "daytime" viewer. Stay true to you!!

  68. yikes says – reply to this


    68

    KATHY IS PERFECT ON HER OWN! I LOVE HER! She doesn't need a crochety old lady with a speech impediment to teach her to be uptight and "proper". I see her in concert all the time and she's just Kathy, no pretenses, no hollywood fakery or ass kissin'. She is who she is and she knows who she is and that's why people like her. Joy Behar couldn't take it anyway. Joy is so over and so is Ms. Bawbwa……

    73

    The View doesn't deserve talent like Kathy Griffin !! …. She's a real, honest and outspoken, hard working Funny Girl - can't say that for the rest of them on that show ( what was EH's claim to fame? Survivor - come on) !! Kathy's like Rosie … and they didn't get Rosie either!

    Rosies blog for 5 minutes a day is more entertaining than an hour of the View - Kathy should start a blog !! Her Bravo show was hysterical this season .. especially the London show !! LMAO !!

  74. Nicole says – reply to this


    74

    I don't think she should take the job- KATHY IS TOO GOOD FOR THE VIEW! She doesn't need washed up Barbara Walters telling her what's okay to say and not say. The show just SUCKS now…no one feels free to talk. If anything, give Kathy her own show to kick The View's BUTT!

  75. ChaCha says – reply to this

    I like Kathy. She is honest, plain and simple.

  76. lola says – reply to this

    Kathy!!! Get a make-over please! And stop making fun of yourself to make people laugh - that's so tired!~

    And by the way, the gay community isn't that thrilled with your evil need to connect. Ugh! BLA! You suck!

  77. lovesalot says – reply to this


    77

    The View would ruin her career. She's better off on her own. Barbara is cool, I respect her, but her sense of humor sucks. Kathy's comedy is totally lost on Barbara since she is what, like 800 years old now? I love Kathy! She isn't afraid to say what she thinks of Hollyweird and its glitteratti. Do your own thing Kathy, and Perez, please feature Kathy more often.

    I'm sorry, but Kathy Griffin is one gawd awful FUGLY woman!! It's really time to get the eyes done sweetie and tan in a can might help. As for Barbara Walters - she's been around forever & I've heard she has some mighty big bazookas under those blouses and was (is?) quite the charmer in her day.

    82

    Huh? She's not talking badly about her, just saying that Barbara doesn't get her. To me that wasn't an insult about Barbara as much as a comment about how not everyone understands her humour.

  83. Lola says – reply to this


    83

    Too good for the view? I don't watch the show! I've seen Kathy live - what a mess of a person! And that's what she calls humor. She is pathetic!

    Why would Barbara even entertain the thought of having such a self depreciating loser on her show? Isn't the view supposed to show strong women that Perez loves to hate? PereZ loves this BYOTCH!!! there is a reason she's on the B list!

  84. PLAIN AND SIMPLE says – reply to this

    BARBARA SHOULD HIRE PEREZ!!!!!

    86

    Kathy, I hope that you read all of the comments, as I am a big fan and buy tickets to see your concert every time you are in town (West Palm Beach and Miami this past year. I have to tell you that I don't think that your hair dresser is doing you justice. Please consider changing your hairstyle! The bangs are too severe and your hair is too "puffy," it looks like a helmut and ages you. You would do better to wear your hair parted on the side and have swept bangs. Also, instead of one color processing you should add more golden highlights to soften your color. I understand, you have curly hair and it is hard to straighten out as it is, but really, try a few different new stylists and see if you can't some up with a beter style/color then that, I promise that you can look much better! Regards - a FAN!!!!

    I love Kathy she is to good for those bitches on the view, her talented would be underestimated on that show. But if she does get it more power to her.

    90

    I'm sure she doesn't care and doesn't want to move to New York either. Why would you want to move there when you can have a fab house like her's in the Hollywood hills? She'd have to bite her tongue on that show anyway, and would get in more trouble than Rosie for the shocking stuff she'd say. That show is a bore anyway

  91. Shellster says – reply to this


    91

    Kathy is da bomb! She is one of the best things going on the air today. She tells it like it is (like you, Mr. Faboo Perez!!). It's about damned time. The View would be LUCKY to get Kathy on their show. Their ratings would go through the roof. Maybe even I'd start watching. Can't stand Elizabelch, so much so that I don't watch. It would be great to let Kathy have a go at her. Heheheheh. Kathy rules!

    Could kathy do a hour long show everyday without dropping the f-bomb? Doubt it! Her kind of humor(which i love) is better suited for the gay porn awards! If she did join the ladies on the view i would soo start watching the show. Love u Kathy!! u r hilarious!

  96. Brock says – reply to this


    96

    The View like any aging hurt old dog should be taken to the vet and given the Pink Juice. My belief is Kathy wants a Dynasty like Opra, the view being a stepping stone on a long path toward that end. But come on, The View is a prime example of too much reliance on focus groups to planning a show.
    So all of my babling means no Kathy should not get involved with those cackling crows. It's best to be on the outside to make fun, that way your more objective when ripping them a new one. As for Perez being on the show, oh hell no. I dought he would make it throught the first interview for the job. There is no way in hell a camilion hair gay is ever going to co-host a Barbara Walter show. Don't sell yourself short Prez with those old bags!

    CAN I BE ONE OF YOUR ASSISTANTS TOO??

    Kathy would be a great addition to the show, but Barbara Walters is too much a control freak to let it happen. Besides that, Kathy would'nt be Kathy without her smart mouth and snippy comments. She's an awesome comedian, and I'd hate to see her 'watered down' to fit into the 'View'. Kathy doesn't pull any punches, and pointing the finger at the stupid shit celebrities do is her THING and she does it like no one else. After a year of Rosie's lesbian preachfest, I really don't think Barbara Walters has the balls to hire a woman with a backbone like Kathy Griffin. Besides, Kathy obviously doesn't need 'The View', since she just got her second straight Emmy nomination for her own show: My Life on the D-List. Let Babwa strong-arm someone else.
