Kathy Griffin Reveals Her ‘Real Housewives of Hollywood’ Dream Cast [AUDIO]
Funny lady Kathy Griffin stopped by the “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” studio on Wednesday to chat about her new talk show “Kathy” on Bravo, her much younger boyfriend, posing nude, and if it existed, who she would want to see on ‘The Real Housewives of Hollywood.’
Who Would Kathy Want On ‘The Real Housewives of Hollywood’?
“‘Real Housewives of Hollywood,’ I would have to say you Ryan [Seacrest]. I think you would be like the super [expletive] housewife ever, and you’d be flipping the tables,” she says, probably hoping to ruffle Ryan’s feathers. However, Ryan admits he wouldn’t mind being on it. Then Kathy had another idea: “Or why don’t you marry Reza [Farahan] from ‘The Shahs?’ That’s a moment.”
On ‘Khloe & Lamar’ Heating Up This Season:
“I’ve watched every frame of your [Ryan Seacrest's] heinousness that you have inflicted, but I’ve got to say ‘Khloe & Lamar‘ is really heating up this year. I am riveted watching that show. Because let me tell you, that is not what Khloe [Kardahsian] signed on for. She does not want to live in Dallas, I don’t care how many time she looks at the camera and says: ‘I love Dallas.’ She wants to be at Kitson on Robertson where she belongs.”
How Much Money Would You Have To Be Offered To Pose Nude?
Ryan doesn’t seem to think the price would be that high, so he first off asked her if she would be willing to pose nude? Her response: “Why not? absolutely.” Ellen K. thought Kathy may have already posed nude in a campaign for PETA. Well, Kathy set the record straight saying: “No, that’s the last thing I need. There are very few groups that frighten me, but let me tell you, PETA scares the hell out of me. Because I can just see them waiting for me outside Ryan’s house with paintballs.”
On Her New Talk Show On Bravo:
Kathy has been known to be a little bit edgy with her humor, so was Bravo a little nervous to give her a talk show? “Of course, how could they not be? They didn’t know what the show was. I still won’t tell them,” she says. Although, Kathy would love to do the show live, she tells us: “They won’t let me come close, they won’t let me even tape the same day.”
Kathy’s talk show is not celebrity driven, but a ‘celebrity’ that will be appearing regularly is her mother. “It’s all her in the moment, you can not script Maggie Griffin. I actually like having her do the final segment of the show, because we call it ‘Maggie Tucks You In.’ At first I don’t know if the network loved the idea of a 91-year-old alcoholic on the show, but I’m telling you, people love her.” Check out the clip of Maggie below.
On Her Younger Boyfriend:
“I’m 51, he’s 33. I agree it’s disgusting, for him. But what hurts me the most is that he actually seems to think that you’re a nice guy,” she says. However, Kathy likes to keep this part of her life private. “After doing a reality show for 6 years, where I really sort of had to be open and honest about all of that. I was like: ‘Well, with the talk show I can have like one sliver of privacy,” she explains.
Kathy continues, “He’s a civilian. He’s not in show business, he’s a regular guy and that’s one of the reasons I like him. He’s a nice guy, he didn’t sign on for this part. He doesn’t need to go online and hear people reading that he’s the most unlucky guy on the planet.” He seems like a pretty luck guy to us, but is he able to get a word in edgewise when he is with Kathy? She tells us: “Believe it or not, at night like he comes over and he kind of does most of the talking and I sort of am not like this crazy manic.”
You can see “Kathy” on Bravo on Thursday nights at 10/9c.
