Kathy Griffin: ‘I’m Far Too Famous For Dancing With The Stars’
Posted by Adam
KATHY 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.”
