Okay, just going to come out with a disclaimer now that I ADORE me some Kathy Griffin, so I’m already admitting to being totally biased when I tell you about Sandra Bernhard talking shit about my favorite comedienne. Appearing on the HD Net talk show “Naughty But Nice With Rob” Bernhard had some choice words for Griffin’s brand of biting (but funny!) celebrity commentary:
“I’ve never been a fan of Kathy Griffin… Every time she sees me, she hides. If I saw her, I would tell her to find a new angle. Just to say someone is stupid, that’s not crafting an idea. I think things through. I absorb culture and put it out in layers.”
Um… okay seriously, the last time I checked, the only thing Bernhard’s been absorbing are Roseanne residual checks. Sorry, I know she’s done other stuff since then, so don’t get your panties twisted, I get it – she’s done stuff. But really, who the hell cares about Sandra Bernhard? What the hell has she done lately that would make her think she’s anywhere near Kathy’s league? Sorry, but Kathy Griffin is fantastic. Maybe her NYE coverage with Anderson Cooper was a little forced and manic at times, but she did strip at the ball drop – what more do you want here, people??
I get it. Griffin’s an acquired taste, but really, so is Bernhard – so instead of sounding like a catty bitch jealous of another woman’s fame, how about Ms. Bernhard just be happy that there’s another successful female in comedy? And by another, I mean Kathy Griffin and Joan Rivers, because Sandra Bernhard kind of sucks. Just saying.
