Kathy Griffin: ‘I’m Far Too Famous For Dancing With The Stars’


Thursday, December 30, 2010

Kathy GriffinKATHY Griffin says she’s too famous to appear on Dancing With the Stars.

The comedienne has revealed she’s been approached numerous times about becoming a contestant on the show — but she’s turned down every offer.

“Of course I’ve been asked to do the show, but I’m way too big and far too famous. Also I can’t touch my toes. Those two things would make me a very bad contestant,” she said.

“I would want to be in a partial lesbian team with Bristol Palin. I know that’s shooting for the stars, but I’m an ideas person.”

Griffin was recently asked if she’s been watching Palin’s new reality show.

“I watched the first one, and then I had to have someone hold my hair because I was vomiting the whole time and so I didn’t feel it was good for my health because I thought if I’m just going to projectile vomit every time I watch the show then I’m just not going to keep any nutrients in my body,” she said.

“But I do enjoy watching Sarah Palin’s interviews because they have so much thinly-veiled contempt. She’s so easy to see through, which makes her such a great target for my act.

“She acts like she’s not ever heard of anyone who has ever criticized her in any way. Aaron Sorkin, who obviously has a history but is obviously a pretty brilliant guy, made a disparaging remark about her and then she spent a very long time in an interview acting like she didn’t know who Aaron Sorkin was and then saying, ‘Golly gosh, is it Alan? What’s his name again?’ And I’m thinking, I don’t think that makes you look great that you’ve never heard of Aaron Sorkin or pretended to never have heard of him.”[imagebrowser id=464]

    ….Or could it be that Griffin’s too hideous to touch for any male contestant? This whore is a legend in her own mind.

      I think she is hilarious. My ex-husband and I were at a resort in Wisconsin and we missed the motor-brigade to the resteraunt our club members were all going to, so we sat in the lounge and drank instead…this woman was there with a guy and she was so funny I almost fell off my bar stool laughing and it turned out it was her…Kathy Griffin. I have liked her ever since because she turned a bummer night into a great night.

  • Heather&Mike Lang

    We agree with last poster- she is F-ing awesome. She is so hilarious, so real, and not a fake ass bitch like Sarah Palin. And she is beautiful!!!!

  • ed wood

    Her smartass schtick has become old. Sarcasm is one thing and raunch is another. But when she spoofs ‘retards’ and ‘senile old wrinkle warts’, saying that both should be doused with gasoline and burned to heat the homes of the beautiful people, she’s going too far.

    • http://showbizspy Sherr

      COME ON PEOPLE, THE ONES WHO ARE HATING ON HER IS THE KIND SHE’D PROBABLY CHEW UP AND SPIT OUT TO THE DOGS. THAT IS THE ONLY REALLY REAL PERSON IN HOLLYWOOD I CAN THINK OF. A LOT OF STARS LOVE HER TO DEATH & LOVE WHAT SHE DOES, THE ONES WHO CANT STAND HER ARE THE ONES WHO ARE SO FULL OF THEMSELVES IT’S PITIFUL! SO, I GUESS THE “YOU’RE SO GREAT & YOUR S*** SMELLS LIKE ROSES” THOSE STARS DONT HATE AS MUCH AS THEY FEAR HER OUTING THEM FOR HOW FAKE THEY REALLY ARE!!! DID I STEP ON SOMEBODIES TOES WITH THAT ONE?

  • fl hockey

  • emily

    lol.. haha i dont think so.
    she has really lost her mind, or is she kidding??!?!?! im not sure

    • http://showbizspy Sherr

      THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT KATHY LIKES, TO GET UNDER PEOPLES SKIN…. KATHY HAS GONE FROM A D-LIST STAR TO AN A-LISTER WITH AN EMMEY TO BOOT FOR HER SHOW. HER SHOW’S BEEN ON AIR FOR HUMMM, 5/6 YEARS? WHEN SHE’S DONE WITH THIS SHOW HER SYNDICATION PROFITS IS NOT GOING TO BE SCREAMING D/LISTER! IT WILL BE DRIVING HER ALL THE WAY TO FORT KNOX! WHO WILL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH THEN? SHE CANNOT GET OUT THERE AND TELL A BUNCH OF LIES, SHE’D BE SUED SO FAST. TO BAD SOME OF YOU GUYS AREN’T IN HER CIRCLE, YOU MAY CHANGE YOUR TUNE SOMEWHAT. KATHY CAN TAKE IT JUST AS HARD AS SHE GIVES IT. YOU GO KATHY! PEOPLE WHO ARE LOOKED UP/WORSHIPED AREN’T ALL THEY’RE CRACKED UP TO BE. THERE’S PEOPLE WHO THINK CERTAIN STARS COULD MAKE THE SUN RISE & SET, “THEY’RE THE BEST PEOPLE IN OUR WORLD & COULD/WOULD NEVER DO WRONG”! KATHY DRIVES BY & POPS A LITTLE REALITY IN THAT BUBBLE! ALL OF A SUDDEN KATHY IS THE BAD 1, THE DEMON. HOWEVER, SHE DOESN’T HIDE ANYTHING SHE DOES, SHE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS ON HERSELF, HER FAMILY & ANY OTHERS THAT MAY NEED TO BE DROPPED DOWN A FEW NOTCHES. STARS HATE IT WHEN SHE LETS THEIR FANS KNOW THEY’RE FRAUDS….

  • JUST_MY_OPINION

    I used to like Kathy but I can’t stand her anymore. Her “funniness” has turned into “pure rudeness”….There’s a difference when it’s comedy but when you deliberately set our to ‘HURT’ people like she does….that’s trashy! I laughed when it said…“Of course I’ve been asked to do the show, but I’m way too big and far too famous. Also I can’t touch my toes. Those two things would make me a very bad contestant,” she said.” NO YOU MALE LOOKING CROSS DRESSER…BIOCTH….YOU DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO MAKE FUN OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! You are disgusting….AND IT’S US THAT WOULD BE VOMITING IF YOU WERE TO EVEN APPEAR ON DWTS! YOU ARE NOT ALL THAT LIKE YOU THINK YOU ARE!!! YOU MAKE ME SICK!!!!

  • http://showbiz.com Mike

    This liberal pig whore is too ugly to be on dancing with the stars. She is just another Hollywood celebrity that is out of touch with reality and full of herself.

  • JUST_MY_OPINION

    Somebody needs to push her off that HIGH HORSE she thinks she’s on!!! Isn’t conceitedness UGLY!!! LOL and look “WHAT” she is!!! UGLY INSIDE & OUT!!! Honey bling & fake shIt don’t make you pretty!!! CLEAN YOUR MIRROR!!!!!

  • Ben

    It’s obvious to posters here that they don’t get her humor at all. When she says she’s too famous for DWTS she’s parodying her lack of star power while also rightfully pointing out that the dancers are not really stars at all, which is why she gets asked. Dimwits of course hate her because they can’t stand a smart and very funny woman.

    • Scott

      Most people don’t realize how much she puts herself down and that sometimes her comments have a ring of truth in them! They don’t get what she’s really saying…. the only “Stars” on DWTS are ones that used to be, it’s become more of a Google challenge to find out who most of them are!

  • http://www.yahoo.ca geocyn48c

    why don’t she try a different Occupation like undertaker,she can use her”rudeness” on some of the dead they wouldn’t mind anyway. lol

  • itzmaybellinenicka

    Tranny Bonaduce

  • david

    LOL She couldn’t be MORE correct about Sarah Palin or her show! LOL

  • Jody

    I am neither a fan nor a hater of kathy Griffin, but it is very obvious to a person of normal or even low intelligence that she was NOT serious about being too famous. DUH! Some people just take things way too seriously.

  • mamajojo411

    I’ve been to 2 of Kathy’s shows, so I know how she is. I am leaning towards not really liking her now. I made a insignificant posting on her website recently and they BANNED it and took it off their website. Hmmm but it’s ok for her to attack people..??? The only thing I said on her website was that I took her drinking glass (by bribing one of her stagehands)at her last show. I know it’s ridiculous, but my daughter wanted it. I gave the straw to a disabled girl and she was thrilled someone paid attention to her at all because people can be really mean and rude, especially when you are disabled (Kathy). So, unless she grows up, I’m out.

  • Chuck

    Your a Douchbag

  • Jerry

    You people need to grow a sense of humor. She’s a comedian! She’s joking!

    • mamajojo411

      Did you not read my post? Until her humor affects someone close to you you won’t get it.

  • Tash

    You are all idiots. She is joking. Its called SARCASM. She is a comedian remember???? And she is funny. She takes it too far sometimes, but she didn’t get rich by being not funny. Some people out there like her. Some don’t,… but I highly doubt DWTS would lose any ratings if she was on. If people continued to watch “The Situation” I think they can watch Kathy.

  • Brandon

    WOW, i didnt realize how bad this woman looks. I used to have a little thing for her, but she really looks like an old version of andy dick with a wig…by the way, get over yourself, your not that big of a star…i sure hope she is kidding

  • Wayne

    If you think she was being serious you are not aware of her comedy. YouTube it and you’ll see she is just parodying how she percieves A-listers.

  • Kathy Griffin

    The greatest line in the celebrity roast series was when Greg Giraldo called her “Tranny Bonaduce”. I hate it when comedians get political.

  • sarah

    If you know anything about Kathy Griffin’s humor, you’d know she was joking about being “too famous” for Dancing with the Stars. If you had any common sense you’d see that the entire paragraph was meant to be funny! Some posters on here seem to actually take everything she does and says seriously! AND PERSONAL! The same people that got offended by her saying any of this on here are the same people that get worked up after her shows. She gets publicity off you idiots that hate her, you know that right?

    And she isn’t ugly. With all the work she has done she’s not hideous so stop with the childish remarks. She’s obviously insecure and you’d be able to tell that with all the jokes she does. The thing about her is she knows that stupid people hate her so much and take everything she says seriously, but they also help her sell tickets. That’s why she makes remarks like this–because people that get it will buy the tickets because the idiots got pissed off and blogged about it and made all of us laugh LOL.

    • Jim Dible

      Why don’t you cry crazy like and go on Youtube and tell people to leave your little Kathy alone and quit picking on her. You sound a fucking nuts as she does

  • http://na Ricardo Budapesto

    Kathy Griffin is a complete Douchebag! All you liberals posting here bashing Palin can kiss my balls. If you people had an IQ abve tire pressure this country wouldn’t be in the shape it’s in. The redhead Griffin is a skank hoe, no talent..not funny. And she probably can’t dance a lick! Go away griffin and take Kim Kardashian and Lindsey Lohan with you!

    • jb

      Ricardo.
      Lighten up Francis…

      Its called POP culture & Palin is just as much part of it as any other Quasi TV star that you mentioned… which everyone with a brain can see.
      Kathy is just making a living poking fun at them…

      So…Lighten up Francis.

  • http://showbizspy Marcia

    I love ya kathy… but when you start getting political Funny when you make fun of all politicians – but when you blast the republican point of view, you alienate your republican fans. We love your comedy and your show (love it) but your political views are overshadowing your talent and humor.

  • http://yahoo.com Lana

    In her own mind she may be too big and famous, wait she does a a huge NASTY MOUTH, AND BUTT UGLY TOO. THOSE ARE THE ONLY THINGS SHE IS FAMOUS FOR. THE WOMAN IS A MEAN TRASH MOUTHED PC OF HUMAN GARBAGE. AND I AGREE WITH THE GUY THAT SAID NO ON WOULD WANT TO GET NEAR ENOUGH TO DANCE WITH HER ON DWTS. GROSS, NASTY EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING!!!

  • David

    I actually know her brother…she comes from a very nice Jesuit family. Hard to believe with her crass comedy. I am also in the camp of thinking she was funny at one time. Now, she seems to be desparately hanging on by being crass in order to get a paycheck. I hope she is saving her money.

  • Chuck

    We and they are giving her to much press .She will fall buy the wayside just like most of them in Hollywood .She is D list at best .

  • http://None Stevo

    She is truly a horrid-looking woman, and I would feel bad about saying that, but she makes fun of other people (including their looks) so frequently, she deserves it. It’s amazing she has the nerve to make fun of other people’s appearances, looking the way she does. Check out the recent pictures of her wind-surfing that are on the internet – she is EVEN UGLIER with no make-up, if you can believe that.

  • Bill Londell

    Yep, Kathy Griffin is one rank and foul slob of a bittch but when she is all dolled up and put together, I would definitely let her suck me off and swallow my load. She is the ideal type to do a bukkake on too.

  • Jim Dible

    What a disgusting piece of crap. She isn’t good enough for my dog. He’s picky what he screws. World would be a better place if she was dead. Put her, Bob Saget and Rosie in a boat, tie their hands together and sink it!!

  • wanma0

    hmmmm….lets see what she will do when she needs a stunt to revive her career….. when she she bombs it!!!

  • chuck

    keep her off the air .Where is Lee Harvey Oswald when you need him .

  • chuck

    Hey Kathy working out to keep in shape like you do , don’t help ugly .

  • http://non klaris
