Make sure to tune in to what has become a new tradition. What will Kathy
do this year? There is only one way to find out. The fun starts at 9pm eastern only on CNN (more info).
"I've given up asking Kathy to watch what she says. There's no point. I'm just hoping for the best." ~~ Anderson
"I'm sorry to report Anderson Cooper will not be my attaché for New Year's Eve this year on CNN. His vulgarity and crossing the line humor has proven to be too much for my virgin ears." ~~ Kathy

Tribute to a Trailblazer and Friend
It's hard to know where to begin with how Joan Rivers changed my life, but I do know I would not be doing what I do if it weren't for Joan.
It starts in my Oak Park, Ill., living room and seeing her on my television, hosting "The Tonight Show": a woman, by herself on a stage, telling jokes and making people laugh. Women could do this?
Stand-up is not a gig in which you say, "It isn't rocket science." It's harder than rocket science. And like rocket science probably was for ages, comedy was not woman's work when Joan was coming up in the 1960s. A woman could know she was funny, but to make a living out of it? At that time, there was Phyllis Diller, Moms Mabley, Totie Fields, and that was about it (continued here)
Kathy's ALS Challenge!
Just when you thought the stars had run out of creative ways to do the ALS Ice Bucket
Challenge, along comes Kathy Griffin! The comedian appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Friday, Aug. 29,
to discuss her new comedy album and to air her raunchy challenge video.
In the clip, the redheaded star slips out of a pool while wearing sky-high red stiletto heels ("I'm classy lady!"). Griffin accepted the unusual take on the viral challenge from author and financial advisor Suze Orman, and some of her other challengers, Backstreet Boys member A.J. McLean and Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza, were the ones to dump the freezing water on her head (more and the video).
Making "Majestic" History
Kathy, in cooperation with Bravo, taped her 20th comedy special
on Nov. 24 in San Antonio's Majestic Theatre. In addition to her
normal peeps, reps from Guinness World Records were to present Kathy with
the title for "Most Stand-Up Specials by a Comedian."
Kathy::: "humbled by the honor and can't wait to set the award next to my Schmemmys and forthcoming Grammy Award."
The new special, titled Record Breaker will air on Bravo Wed, Dec 18th at 8pm ET/PT. Bravo's release can be read here.
Here's the deal. I've had severe complications from lasik surgery. My doctor
WAS Dr. Robert Maloney of the Maloney Vision Institute in Los Angeles and
Extreme Makeover. I will not be going to him again. I've had FIVE surgeries
on my right eye. Three were lasik surgeries and one was an attempt at corrective
surgery by Maloney. Most recently, I had another corrective surgery by another
doctor and let me tell you, once my complications began in 2003, it was a bitch!
