Kathy Griffin Stirs Some Shiz With Massachusetts Politicians!

Oh, look! There Kathy Griffin goes again, getting people's panties all in a knot!

If you caught last week's episode of My Life On The D-List, you know that the comedienne took a dig at Massachusetts senator Scott Brown's two daughters! Watch the HIGHlarity above!

Brown himself has already claimed that Griffin and Bravo "should be ashamed of themselves," but now openly-gay Massachusetts representative Barney Frank - who has actually made an appearance on the reality show - is taking a stand, and isn't pleased either!

He says:

“Having agreed to go on your show, I was particularly disappointed in the terrible comment you made about Sen. Scott Brown’s daughters. I think it’s possible to have fun, and even to poke fun at people in my business, without this kind of completely unfair attack.

And while I don’t usually feel compelled to comment on what various entertainers so, since you did include me in that show I wanted to make it very clear that I thought what you did was wholly unfair and inappropriate. It’s the kind of thing that makes it less likely that I or others can cooperate with you in the future.”

Wow, we think that's a little harsh for such a relatively harmless dig that was immediately acknowledged to be false!

And don't people realize that responding to her only means you're going to be in her next stand-up set?!

Griffin responded this morning via Twitter:

haha,Scott Brown is the Spencer Pratt of the US Senate.THIS is a great time 2 come c me live. OF COURSE I'm lovin all the publicity LOVIN IT

Ha! Pretty astute, gurl! He's pretty awful!

We cannot WAIT to hear her set about HIM now!

You only fueled her fire, boys! Very STOOPID!

Thoughts??

Eddie Murphy Wants To Do Stand-Up Again

Filed under: Eddie Murphy

Whoa, is it the '80s again??

Eddie Murphy is planning to return to the stage as a stand-up comedian, but says he needs at least a year to get enough material.

The Shrek star says:

"Within the last six months or so, I started getting an itch to do it again. I started writing stuff… I was like, 'I could go and do 15, 20 minutes right now. Maybe in a couple of months I'll start working out again'. But it'll take a year before I'm ready to go on the road… It's gonna take at least a year to get the rust off; 20 years of rust."

We hope he does more classic SNL comedy and less Nutty Professor crap!

Him?? Really??

Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari is apparently getting a huge break and is set to host the 2010 MTV Movie Awards!!

The funnyman is also co-starring in the upcoming Jonah Hill/Russell Brand film Get Him to the Greek, and is touring his stand-up comedy routine in June, so it looks like 2010 is going to be his year!!

Nominations and categories for the awards ceremony have not yet been announced, but we're sure it will basically just be lots of Twilight noms all over again!!

We definitely think he's funny, but we wonder how he'll fare front and center - up until now, he's only been a side-kick!!

What do U think?? Will Aziz be a good host for the MTV Movie Awards??

Rosie Cancels! Lesbians In An Uproar!

Filed under: Rosie O'Donnell

Yikes! Your own people are not happy with you, bb!

Rosie O'Donnell was all set to appear at The Dinah in Palm Springs at the beginning of April to make her long awaited return to stand-up comedy in honor of Club Skirts and all her lesbian sistahs!

However, a press release went out this morning announcing that Rosie has canceled the engagement because…well because she really just doesn't want to do it!

Apparently, Rosie told the organizers that rather than fly out to Palm Springs, she wants to hang out in Miami for Spring Break and spend some time with her kids and her new lady lover.

As you might have guessed, the lesbians are not happy about this! Dinah organizers released a statement saying: "We are very disappointed in this decision, and know her Dinah fans will be as well."

Not cool, Ro! You're breaking those ladies hearts!

What a shroud of secrecy!! We LOVE it.

Ticketmaster is reportedly prepping to sell tickets to a stage show starring Conan O'Brien at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix!!

Neither the ginge nor the theater have announced what the show will entail, but you can buy tickets this Monday!!

If this has anything to do with what we posted last month, then they certainly wasted NO time getting the ball rolling!!

The performance is set for April 30th.

What do U think Conan will be doing at this random performance??
