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.”[imagebrowser id=464]
