If I Haven’t Of­fended Any­one, I Haven’t Done My Job!

No one is safe from the hi­lar­i­ous comic’s epic rants

In Touch (USA) - - Truecrime -

Long before celebrity roasts went main­stream, Kathy Grif­fin was blaz­ing a trail as the queen of in­sult­ing A-list stars — and oc­ca­sion­ally some of her au­di­ence members as well. “I don’t feel like I’ve done my job un­less some­one storms out of my show,” the fear­less 55-year-old ac­tress-comic tells In Touch. Here, Kathy dishes on the celeb she re­grets diss­ing, her re­la­tion­ship with her 18-years-younger boyfriend, Randy Bick, and what Blac Chyna has that she cov­ets!

It’s safe to say you’ve of­fended your fair share of peo­ple through­out the years. KG: Are you kid­ding? Ev­ery day! I think it’s im­por­tant to of­fend cer­tain peo­ple. Some comics, like Jerry Se­in­feld and Ellen Degeneres, never of­fend any­one, and that’s great. But I think it’s key.

about it af­ter­ward? KG: All the time. Es­pe­cially when I get to know them. I’ve be­come friends with Renée Zell­weger, and I made a heinous joke about her once. But now we’re tex­ting bud­dies.

Is it harder be­ing a woman in your field? KG: It’s still such a male-dom­i­nated arena. When you’re a fe­male, you have to work harder and jump higher. And men don’t have to worry about the way they look.

Speak­ing of looks, what are your thoughts on plas­tic surgery? KG: I got a face-lift around 2000, and it didn’t re­ally give me any­thing I thought it would.

Do you re­gret it? KG: I would [tell] my younger self not to bother. Two weeks ago some­one in the in­dus­try told me, “They loved your meet­ing, but they de­cided to go ‘pretty.’” I’m like, “Let me know when they de­cide to go ‘ugly and funny,’ be­cause here I am!”

That’s crazy! KG: It’s con­stant.

You’ve been with your boyfriend, Randy, for five years. What’s the most ro­man­tic thing he’s done for you? KG: This is go­ing to sound re­ally weird: He’s very tidy and I’m kind of messy, so he ti­dies things up. He’s just the right amount of OCD.

What are you watch­ing on TV these days? KG: Well, I watch the news 24/7, be­cause my au­di­ence ex­pects me to be up on ev­ery­thing from Blac Chyna to Hil­lary Clin­ton.

Are you a fan of Blac Chyna? KG: Her emo­jis are very good. So I’m try­ing to be­come White Chyna. I don’t know if I could sleep with Rob [Kar­dashian] though. I don’t know if I wanna sell emo­jis that bad! ◼

FUNNY GAL “I just do my thing and make as many peo­ple laugh as I can,” Kathy told In Touch at the Best in Drag Show char­ity event in LA. Her new book, Kathy Grif­fin’s Celebrity Run-ins,

comes out on Nov. 22. NOVEM­BER 14, 2016
