Shoe cam still exists So here we go Yeah, really cute
(cheering) By who? These are Fendi’s Fendi’s These are Fendi’s and I cannot go jogging in them No well–
But they’re for you Thank you and–
Of course And your slacks? Carolina Herrera Okay and your self-promotion? It’s fabulous (laughs) Do you love it? I have a movie out Uh huh
(applause) And– and there’s no like advertising money, no studio or anything if I have to wear a sandwich board I want people to see this movie. You can get it on Apple, Amazon and as of October 8th it’s in four country– 40 countries outside the US and December 2nd it’ll be on Prime video in 62 countries outside the US. (applause) Sell the story! So last week on this show Kathy Yes We did a throwback of a celebrity. We have this game that we play for a prize. Oh I couldn’t even guess that. How many nose jobs have you had? Two, that was two noses ago and– Okay I found out that as you get older, your nose grows and your ears grow. And I think that
Oh yeah My nose is back to that again. No it’s not, no it’s not. But I can’t have it gutted any more. I’m afraid it’ll like cave in or something so– What would you tell that girl? I–
How old were you there? Oh my, that was my 8th grade picture Okay And I– I work in, you know the five head and I’m sure I had tried to give myself a blowout because obviously my hair is extremely curly. Yeah. So that was my attempt at a blowout and I was a Catholic girl gone bad. Like I was getting in trouble by the nuns all the time and they would write on my report card she has potential but she’s boy crazy. (laughs) Which I still am Weren’t we all? Yes! Thank you! All right so the hair, looks great Thank you! And it must be easy–
(cheers) Must be easy to do. I love it because I– you know the first third of the film is the documentary that honestly it was just filmed on phones cause like nobody would take a meeting with me or do anything. And the second two thirds of the film are a comedy concert film and I made a special and nobody you know, would even look at a 30 second like reel– of it.
Would they take– They wouldn’t even take meetings with you? Nothing, nobody. But you know Kris Who? Kardashian! Jenner. Oh (laughs) Couldn’t she get you on E! or something? I– I– I don’t know if she would like get me a gig. I don’t know, maybe– but I’m op– I’m happy to do an eye pencil line if anyone– Kris, if you’re watching? (laughing) But I will say she– I actually talk about her in the film because while all the crazy Trump stuff was happening, I was living next door to Kim and Kanye. Oh, oh And the very– I actually tell the story in the movie about the very night that the picture went live. I was having dinner with Kris Jenner and she came over and– The picture of the head
She was super– Yes and she was actually super sweet and comforting and– and so I talk about in the movie. Kathy that was two years ago. Two and a half years ago Why are people so– Oh, oh no, so today I’m here. I have breaking news– so today just last night I don’t know if some of you guys have seen this. It’s actually too graphic to show– the New York Times wouldn’t even show it. Oh they can go on your social media though and see it– Yeah because what happened–
You still have it up? I did put it up
I saw it. Because I think it’s important– the fact that this photo that I took which was not illegal, covered by the first Amendment. You can be offended by it, it’s okay. It was a mask with ketchup but you know and– you know I was under a full federal investigation by two federal agencies– And blocked from flying I was on the no-fly list
How did you get here? Did you walk? I’m off–
(crowd laughs) No I was actually exonerated and like when Trump goes “I was exonerated.” No no I have a letter from the government actually saying I was exonerated cause they were investigating me and considering– and this is a historic story in our country. Considering charging me with the crime of conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States. In the meantime on your social media the video that we can’t show but I’ve seen it is the President with a gun The Pres– yeah. There’s a video out–
Killing people in Yeah and he’s doing it in a church like Dylann Roof which is really bad news and they made a video of Trump, you know, doing a mass shooting inside a church. And the last two people he murders are me and Hillary Clinton. (crowd gasps)
And so what– The reason I– I talk about it is– you know this thing will get all ginned up again. So like the same groups that came after me two and a half years ago, they’re gonna be reinvigorated and frankly, we don’t know how people take that video. So it’s really, really violent and people’s heads get blown off and there’s– there you know Stephanie Grisham, the White House Press Comms Director was trying to distance herself but– they played it at Doral, one of his golf clubs? It’s a fake video but they’re trying to make fun of it. Yeah Kathy, how do people receive you in the streets, like cause for me, I’d be like hey Kathy! Yeah, all kinds of ways I mean. It depends– things have– things have gotten better now I will say this video today is not gonna help and so I already have been in contact with the FBI again and so, people are a little bit of everything but like I have been, you know, confronted on the streets many times. Has your house been vandalized? Your mansion, excuse me (laughs) My mansion–
She lives very– and I paid for it cash (cheers) That’s right, that’s right! You heard me! (applause) Cash! Cash! (applause) (laughs) That’s right. Do people tomato your house? Save your money, ladies. Save your money. Cause you never know when you’re gonna need it. Look, do they tomato your house? No but when I go outside-
Do they spray paint- It’s really odd because, you know I don’t know like who’s– who’s one of them like who’s– you know people– people thought that I was in ISIS okay you guys? Like they weren’t just mad that I held up a mask with ketchup on it, like they then manipulated the photo and it went global and I covered that in the movie like I didn’t know it was in Arabic papers. It was in papers in Russia, China and saying Kathy Griffin jihad asset. (crowd gasps) So people come up to me on the street and s– you know, think I’m in ISIS and these are obviously like the hardcore Trumpers and it’s very bizarre you know, I’m a– I’m gonna be 59 in a couple of weeks and you know once again, this video comes out today and I’m like, would you really want this to happen to like, your mom or your aunt or– You know, and– and since the photo two and a half years ago I’m still like– in the original. So you don’t feel like the tide is turning? I– I don’t know, I mean. I still don’t have a gig, you know. I don’t have– So you paid for your whole on demand special by yourself. The lights, camera, action–
I paid for the film myself and we even filmed the documentary portion– On an iPhone. On an iPhone–
Your boyfriend. Yes, my boyfriend and I filmed it– You guys are still together? Yeah we’re still together, eight years Okay. We– Yes
Nice. (applause) And he’s here now He’s here now
He’s in the building He’s in the building That’s right, he’s in the building still 19 years younger, ho
(crowd laughs) And so yeah, it’s– it’s kind of a lot you know what I mean because I worry about his safety even Has– has this caused turmoil at one particular point? I don’t mean to be nosey but
It has with our– No it’s okay, it has with our families. Like his family is super– like they don’t– They’re very vocal online about how they feel about me and that’s hard for him to deal with. And none of my family members talk to me not one Griffin has contacted me. Like my cousins
Well no hold on now! Are you serious? No So how has that affected your relationship with him? Oh I think I c–
Does he sometimes sleep– I think it’s made us closer
Okay Because you know when you go through something like this that’s so immense, like when the United States government and the President and the Attorney General come after you. Yeah! And they put you on the no-fly list and then I was on the Interpol list, when I could finally travel overseas cause I couldn’t make a living here. And I’m still– I’m still you know, I have no network that will touch me, no streaming service
If you were a man this would have already been forgotten about, like Eddie Murphy–
Please! And Dave Chappelle have already been forgiven by the gay community for their homophobic– And they’re getting 40 million dollar deals! Yes. And so, I just wanna say like I always you know still wanna talk about pay equality because you know I know
It’s real Every woman fights it but
Yeah In the standup comedy world, it’s really not that much better since the– when I started.
Yeah. So one thing I did during this last couple of years– besides make the movie, is I actually bought back my own library cause it’s really all about licensing and ownership. So I paid a lot of money to buy back all six seasons of My Life on the D-List, all 23 of my specials, the two seasons of my talk show and here’s the best part– it’s worth nothing, nobody wants to buy it but I’m hoping like, someday if I kick the bucket or something
You wanna know what? Somebody’s gonna be like hey I wanna show those specials. They were funny or whatever, so– I own em now, ya gotta come get em and you gotta pay me what you would pay a man. (applause) What you would pay a man. Yeah
That’s what I want All right so Jenny McCarthy, as we talked about on Hot Topics is out with Ryan Seacrest. She quit New Year’s Rockin Eve. Oo Yeah and– and I know you used to do it with Anderson Yes
But now he does it with– With Andy.
Yes. By the way, what’s your relationship with Anderson did he turn his back on you– Or did he?
Yeah Oh Oh, oh
Sorry, he did– I mean, you guys all saw it, so– I can’t lie about it (laughs) Wow. And it hurt, like I always– How do you get along with Andy? I say in the movie
Cohen I don’t get along with Andy Cohen. Who– what celebrities do you, like– Well not Andy Cohen, I mean he was terrible to me. He fired me from Bravo and he was a horrible boss the whole time I was there and you know, he gave himself a talk show and he still runs the network. He’s the only person in the history of television to give himself a nightly talk show which magically gets picked up every season (laughs) So who–
(crowd laughs) So would you– if Ryan Seacrest called you and said come host on New Year’s Eve would you do it? I love that you think ABC would like come anywhere near me I mean, I wanted– here’s– here was my thing that I pitched for the last two years and nobody was smart enough to bite. I wanted to do New Year’s Eve live with Kathy Griffin and Stormy Daniels. (crowd gasps)
Thank you! That’s a show! That is a sh– that’s right!
(applause) (applause) That is different. It’s thinking outside the box, if you know what I’m saying ladies I still got it and I think it would just be fun and so, you know, I don’t know. Right now I’m– I’m still like too scary to all the– It’s just funny like, everyone is so afraid– Like if you go to Craig’s for dinner do you have to wait a long time for a table or they tell you we’re full–
(laughs) How do people in Hollywood treat you? I– not well, I don’t go to Craig’s anymore. I don’t go out that much anymore. I went to one Emmy party and like hardly anybody talked to me but the night before,
Wow I got to do this– be part of this really amazing show at the Greek Theater like 7,000 seats capacity and Jane Fonda performed and Lily Tomlin and Sia and it was a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the LA Gay and Lesbian Center. And that was just a whole different scenario. I mean people were like really great and obviously the LGBT community is being marginalized as is people of color under this administration. So you– I’m just here to make you guys laugh and hope we all get through this and you know, gotta laugh no matter what so– It was nice to talk with you. I love talking with you always Kathy Griffin everybody!

  1. Wendy was so wet because they got to bring up the "Kardashions" a lot. She must get a check every time she mentions them.

  2. Kathy needed to learn a hard lesson between comedy & treason…sounds like she still hasn't since she is still making excuses for her actions. Freedom of speech doesn't mean she had the right to do as she did. She crossed the line. Enough said

  3. She is vial. It's unacceptable for ANYONE to call that funny! I was appauled. Theres a reason why her family and friends had enough. She's vial with no remorse. Not a fan anymore.

  4. You a walking contradiction ..you thought it was funny … very bad taste.. it’s your fault… you had/have no true friends… they ran fast..

  5. #teamkathygrittin idc what anybody says give this one what she’s worth!!! Y’all forgive anything else so please forgive her and let her get what she’s worth!

  6. I'm a fan. I saw her in a small theater 20 yes ago and she was a riot. Girlie, let all that trump stuff go and come back to the gays.

  7. Another progressive in Fendi heels who fails to realize that her values and jokes don’t resonate with those of us who can only afford to shop at foot locker.

  8. Kathy should have done a YT New Years Eve livestream with Stormi Daniels and have Shane Dawson help her put it all together because I know he would do it and he already has her lighting ready

  9. 6:14 Kathy Griffin–"Would you like this to happen to your mom, your aunt, or, or, or….?" Or your ___ your ____ your____ , c'mon, Kathy, you can say it….g_a_d_o_h_r. Good job, good job.

  10. KATHY LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING TRUMP MAYBE A CREEP BUT WHAT YOU DID TO HIM YOU SHOULD BE LOCKED UP FOR THAT no doubt cuz THAT WAS WRONG regardless of what we think about him he's still our president you have to respect him because if you were in the Middle East, you would have been beheaded had you said that about the president there

  11. Is she really trying to insinuate that trump had something to do with that video. She plays the victim about the photo. She talks about it every single time she is on tv, radio, youtube. If her family stopped talking to her, it had nothing to do w the picture. Poor feminists. In the same breath she talks about how woman dont make money & then my mansion, I paid for in cash!

  12. people judging her for that photo really look stupid, like the people who burnt the dixie chicks albums back in the day, or when they booed sinead o'connor…

  13. LOL wtf is this? The audience is hilarious. Hahahahaha! And the double standards….bragging on her boyfriend who's 19 years younger. Imagine a man her age bragging about dating someone 19 years younger. Hahahaha damn liberals are the weirdest of all….

  14. She couldnt hide it. Her eyes could lie. She is holding back all that pain that this caused her. As much as she wanted to be seen happy n all…..

  15. Why is the Trump head always still a topic of discussion. For some one who claims to let it go, she still talks about it

  16. Very demonic to promote a beheading of another human being especially our president, she is lost and needs Jesus Christ

  17. I used to love Kathy, watched all of her specials… but in my opinion she made her bed and now she has to lay in it. Don't feel bad for her at all.

  18. Telling you kindly, cause I love your show: Please let your guests speak, Wendy! You are always interrupting, not letting them finish their sentences. Let them express themselves and state why they come to the show, what they are doing etc… We like to hear that directly from them. Please pay attention to that!. I notice that from most of you, hosts, in entertainment, news etc…It's  not always about you!  Thank you for inviting the guests but it's about them first, too. Please don't be carried away, let us ALL listen to them, including you , the host or hostess.

  19. Wow. I'm going through something similar, but 10 times worse. I never thought they would do something like this to celebrities. I see you Wendy!

  20. Kathy was on Wendy a year ago and they discussed the whole Trump head photo. Kathy even said, she called Wendy for advice and Wendy admitted she did not answer her call nor wanted to be involved in Kathy’s situation. Wendy is a fair-weather fan!

  21. Kathy your nose is awesome. Welcome to the 60 is the new 40 era! Love your hair! It’s the most flattering style you’ve ever worn. So happy for you and your man. Love the fight in you girl!

  22. The corruption from 45 and his base is nauseating! 45 can say and do whatever and is protected and yet they have tried to completely destroy Kathy. I commend her for surviving and speaking truth!!!

  23. I'm a Trump supporter, but I thought the fake bloody head was kinda funny, just like I thought the fake video of Trump killing people was funny. Hollywood pumps out one violent movie after another, but abandons Kathy Griffin for a comic stunt. Bunch of hypocrites.

  24. Kathy Griffin is the whistleblower of Hollywood. Reveal the dark side of Hollywood when no one dares to do it. The double standard and hypocrisy of Hollywood elite.

  25. I don't think she's all that funny but I do like her attitude. And she's not afraid to call out people like Andy Cohen.

  26. She needed to be taken down a few pegs, just like Roseanne. I hope Kathy learned from her misstep and will remain less intense. Unfortunately, Roseanne learned that the show goes on without her–quite successfully–and she's chosen to pout indefinitely.

  27. Kathy has to acknowledge that the backlash she's receiving stems from her own toxic behavior which made it really easy for others to turn their back on her. That said, the punishment for her tasteless joke was WAY too harsh for the crime. Glad to see her use her resourcefulness and resilience to overcome all of this and hopefully this has been an expensive lesson learned on the importance of boundaries.

  28. She needs a lot of healing. I've always found her to have other underlying mental health issues, wishing her clarity. I will say it's quite irritating when she says, "it was just a mask with ketchup on it." Really? in your entire career, with 50 something years of wisdom, you can't understand the power of imagery? There's absolutely no justification. It's almost like she's taking back her apology from 2.5 years ago….

  29. I'm not buying that "hurt" crap…she's only "hurt" because the Trump head didn't make her a media/celeb hero/darling like she expected it would….she expected to become some big hero to the left.

    You reap what you so Kathy…now lie in the bed you made for yourself.

  30. Not a fan of her.
    I’m not any type of fan of trump, but you have to respect his Officer to an extent. She refuses to be accountable and no one feels bad for her and her millions of dollars, she can go away.

  31. I was in hospital 2 years ago and mind you I live in a 3rd world where hospital are omg I won't say. Back to the story, had didn't have a.smart phone than (saves up to buy one lol). I had a small torch Alcatel phone. So as I was sitting in this rat invested hospital , I was listening to Kathy Griffin on BBC radio talking about the Trump fiesta. The BBC Interviewer was brutal towards her but she held her on. Anyways Miss Wendy Held me through those times also. Anyways that's my story on Griffin saga.

  32. The fact that beheading someone as a joke did not sit right with my spirit🤔🤔🤔🤔I saw it as a mockery to anyone who has been killed in that manner. We living in the last days y’all wake up Repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ. Satan out here causing confusion and preaching doctrines of demons. Many people mad at other people not realizing that they are being used by principalities and rulers in dark places it’s not the flesh were fighting it’s the spirits behind the flesh that is our true enemy. Give your life to Christ he can set you free from all this garbage that the world has to offer.

  33. Such a wonderful interview. Glad to see Kathy is staying strong and getting through the pain of it all. Best wishes to you both! <3

  34. I am so sad for her like people come on, you should do something for her. Petition in order to support her. We already know Hollywood is rotten. In France she is not that famous but in her homeland she should find solace. I’m supporting her here tho.

  35. Shut up Kathy. She cries as she strikes you. Demon. And the video shows another guy beheading you and it's not Trump. The video is over 1 year old. The video is EPIC! 👐🏽

  36. What she did was in bad taste. I think a sincere apology should suffice and she not be banished. I know she has suffered and I feel bad for her for the level of pain she went through. It was an ugly thing to do for shock value and I wish our media as a whole was more positive than it is.

  37. No LGBTQ or "people of color", have been marginalized by this administration! More lies designed to cause division among Americans. If nobody talked to you at the Emmy's, it's because they think you're a jerk, and a liability.

  38. She is the epitome of fearlessness. She’s like the friend who isn’t friends with all your friends, but you still love her. In a world where people are watching what they say all the time, I’m glad she “says it like she means it”.

  39. I used to really like her.. but politics makes people go crazy! I do hope that she finds happiness though and that people stop attacking her, maybe she has learned even if it was the hard way 😕. Bonus points for calling out Andy Cohen.. what a piece of crap! 💩

  40. Resilient is an understatement to describe Kathy! She has always been put down for voicing her opinions but I respect her for continuing to push on!

  41. This is a bunch of crap. I'm not even a Trump fan and she went over the boundaries of good taste. Anderson is a liberal and he turned his back on her. She is not making sense. She is the poster girl of bad taste.

  42. Can we cancel Andy Cohen?

    When is someone going to call out all his unwanted and uncomfortable sexual advances towards his guests and bartenders?

  43. I still love this girl. If this was a man who did what she did, they wouldn't even go through half of what he went through. Kathy is a G for still being herself and being💯.
