Kathy Griffin Confuses Me, But I Like Her Better Than Her Date, Levi Johnston

Kathy_griffin_levi_johnston

Kathy Griffin, 48, took Bristol Palin's baby daddy, Levi Johnston, 19, as her date to the 2009 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday.

Man but this woman confuses me. I think maybe I don't get her sense of humour sometimes, but I know that I do, because she makes me laugh. I guess what confuses me is that most of what I know her for is not even for her television shows but for weird stuff like how she was suddenly hanging out with Paris Hilton in a bikini and going pet shopping. Isn't she a comedian? Now she's a pedophile.

I'm confused, but I still really like her, because absurdity is something I can get behind.  Levi Johnston, though?  WTF?


Levi_johnston

Johnston, a self-professed "f-ing redneck", has tried to use his status as the boy who knocked up former Alaska senator Sarah Palin's daughter as a springboard into a career in acting and modeling, but, poor thing, he is almost entirely forgettable. If he weren't routinely doling out personal information about the Palins to national news organizations, I doubt we would even remember who Levi Johnston is long enough to google him.

Now that I think about it, though, Griffin's decision to bring him as her date to the 2009 Teen Choice Awards might have been kind of brilliant. As someone who has worked her butt off to claw her way out of the lower eschelons of stardom, she smartly chose arm candy who is beneath her who would not steal her spotlight.  In fact, she may also have done Johnston a favour by giving him his most believable role ever as a comedic prop.

And as for the 29 years difference between them? Go Kathy.

Comments

Wubbie

well, he is hot and cleans up well so I can see how he'd make good arm candy.

Sils

She is INSANE and I love her.

I made a deal with Spencer last fall and bought tickets to see Jim gaffigan in exchange for his going to see kathy Griffin with me. He went and now he loves her almost as much as I do. The episode of her show where they try to complete her mom's bucket list and hang out with Betty White is amazing.

She hosted the roast of Joan Riviers last night and it was pretty much the only funny roast Comedy Central has ever hosted. (Which is sad.)

KBO

She is so full of win. She's made a career of telling Hollywood to fuck off in hilarious ways just like this. I love her.

JellyBean

Every publicity stunt Kathy does is tongue-in-cheek. I love her! I don't know why her type of humor isn't more apparent to people.

Snarky Amber

I guarantee at some point this will turn up on My Life on the D List. In fact, I just finished watching an episode, wherein shedecides to hang out with Paris, shopping and sitting poolside, in order to be photographed with a young star and get an "in" with the young A-List set.

Liana

Kathy is Hil-AR-ious! :) That boy will probably never be on a red carpet again, so I hope he had fun!

Condo Blues

I love Kathy Griffin. Everything she does is tongue in cheek. She likes to poke Hollywood in the eye - like taking Levi as her date as a pure publicity move. Sad thing is the kid might not realize it.

Amanda of Shamelessly Sassy

I like Kathy Griffin; however, I think it is incredibly A-listy that she follows no one on twitter. Anyway, she's still my favorite female comic. Well, besides Chelsea Handler..
