Chatting With… Kathy Griffin (Part 1)!

| Filed under: Kathy GriffinChatting With...

So damn funny!

You really MUST watch this interview we did with Kathy Griffin (above)!

Perez recently sat down with the funnylady and we talked about EVERYTHING! So much good stuff that our chat is split in two parts!

In this first part, we talk about…. Cher,, her next Bravo comedy special, NKOTBSB, touring, sex on the road, Michelle Bachmann and her husband, her upcoming acting gigs, Clay Aiken and so much more!

Read some highlights from our chat with Kathy - after the jump.

Watch the interview in full (above)!

Perez Hilton: You're like best friends for real now [with Cher]. It's not like pretend. You know in Hollywood, there's always like fake friendships?

Kathy Griffin: It's cra — look, it's crazy, and magical, and truly I — look we're genuine buds. But of course I can't believe it either. And I will say that to her, and she'll go, "Bitch, you got to relax, I'm just fucking Cher." And I really love her because as you know, a celebrity that can make fun of themselves is very unique and rare. So I can actually make fun of her to her face.

Perez Hilton: What do you do when you and Cher just hang out? Do you like to stay in, does she go out?

Kathy Griffin: No, she does not go out. And so what's funny is I actually went to the premier of the "Zookeeper" with her because she was one of the voices. And it didn’t occur to me until we were in the middle of a Cher mob scene that I've never really been out in public with her. So usually I go to her house, which I love, and we call Cher Island –

Perez Hilton: In Malibu.

Kathy Griffin: — because she bought the whole block.

Perez Hilton: Everybody knows where Cher lives.

Kathy Griffin: Yes, Pacific Coast and Malibu. Yeah.

Perez Hilton: You go down and turn right.

Kathy Griffin: So usually we just — we met once through Rosie O'Donnell, and then Cher called me and of course it sounded like a Cher impersonator, and not a great one, but a pretty good one. And then we just kick it in her house. We, not unlike this, we sit on the cou –

Perez Hilton: Do you drink booze?

Kathy Griffin: She doesn’t drink at all.

[Much more Cher goodness above!]

Perez Hilton: Now you're wearing an NKOTBSB tee shirt.

Kathy Griffin: I am proudly flying my NKOTBSB shirt because I'm a fan, I won't apologize. So if you think I've come here to apologize for loving the New Kids/Backstreet, you're going to be so unmistaken.

Perez Hilton: No.

Kathy Griffin: I went to the show in LA; I've actually known them for a long time.

Perez Hilton: That’s where Kevin came, and reunited the Backstreet Boys.

Kathy Griffin: — came out in the middle. I want it that way, I need a second. I need a minute –

Perez Hilton: I feel like Tiffany and Debbie Gibson should join them as well, even though — why not, wait, Tiffany dated John Knight.

Kathy Griffin: Jonathan Knight. How did I not date Jonathan Knight or you frankly? How did everyone on this couch not date him? He's just hot.

Perez Hilton: I know.

Perez Hilton: What's up with Clay Aiken these days?

Kathy Griffin: I don’t think Clay is a fan of Kathy Griffin. And sometimes I'll talk about myself in the third person like Bobby Brown.

Perez Hilton: Clay doesn’t have a sense of humor.

Kathy Griffin: I don’t think Clay enjoys my humor. But you know what, I enjoy him. And I don’t know if you feel this way, but I like a lot of celebrity's that don’t like me.

Perez Hilton: Is there any preview we can get from the new Bravo special?

Kathy Griffin: I mean, we talk about Marcus Bachman.

Perez Hilton: Marcus Bachmann, Michelle's husband.

Kathy Griffin: Yes, Michelle Bachman's husband with [you MUST watch above].

Kathy Griffin: I ran into [Michele] at an escalator at the radio and television correspondence dinner.

Perez Hilton: And did she come up to you or you went up to –

Kathy Griffin: Yes.

Perez Hilton: She did?

Kathy Griffin: No, it was crazy. She came up to me, and she literally said [watch above].

  6. 6

    What an annoying twat



  7. 7

    Wow. Two of the most annoying people in the universe, Perez/Mario and Kathy Griffin, come together and babble about a lot of nothing. Watch the video? No freaking way. I can't stand to hear you talk, Mario; someone needs to remove your vocal cords.



  8. 8

    You want us to watch the video so bad whats the point of putting the text up?! Complete waste.



  9. 9

    I have never met anyone who thinks this hack is remotely funny



  10. 10

    completely unfunny, and fugly, makeup applied by the gallon… hope you never see a pic of her without makeup, you will lose lunch…



  11. 11

    At the time of my post there are 10 others, of those 8 are right on about the interview being a waste with this talentless hack…yes I am speaking of you both, so now count me as # 9, no need or purpose in this life to view the second part of your interview (if that is what you reallt think it is.)



  12. 12

    I think Kathy is really very funny, and the way she shut Hasselbeck up, by telling her she lives for this kind of stuff, cuz that's how she writes her act, was just priceless. The Bachman shit was fucking funny too, but I have to say she makes hanging out at "Cher Island" sound boooring!!



  13. 13

    love Kathy….Perez did You Really not know about the Michele story…that was on the mainstream news LONG AGO……You are more out of touch than my poor departarted grandmother.



  14. 14

    not a fan
    none of my straight friends like her and her crudeness
    bue the few gays that I know absolutely love her
    don't know why
    unless they think they're supposed to
    or they are more crude than they let on to the world
    baffles me completely!



  15. 15

    I love Kathy! She is sooo funny. Good interview Perez.



  16. 16

    I think Kathy Griffin is dreadful. If someone doesn't understand her humor its because she isn't funny.

    Real comedians don't need to put others down to be funny. When that is your entire act, maybe one should try another career.

    Kathy griffin is hilarious. Im Australian and I can't get enough of her..
    Anyone who hates her or says she isn't funny is only because she probably insulted their cultures or fav celebrity or something so they go all hater on her azz.
    Shes not intending to insult or offend anyone..well maybe offend a little haha. God I love her! Stop being such prudes ! Everyone has different senses of humor, you can't please everyone, but I strongly believe Kathy could



  18. 18

    LOVE her! Dumb acts like the Bachman's need to be called on their BS



  19. 19

    Re: TORTEZ – Ok, what is with the Illuminati bullshit? Are you for real? You sound like Nicholas Cage wandering around in the dark with a torch and a bad wig trying to find a glow in the dark hieroglyph or some shit. Love her, love your hat, love your shirt, HATE your pants.



  20. 20

    E. T. - ditch that ridiculous wig; you're not fooling anybody, and phone home.



  21. 21

    Love Kathy
