Kathy Griffin are not supposed to be guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Third night. Like comedians are not filtered was quick to tell viewers as she sat down next to the host, “Let’s not be an audience of BS. I’m here, as usual, because someone more famous has passed away. “
“But get this, it’s Chris Pine who Harry Styles spat on!” she continued. “So he doesn’t want to be here and get this question for him,” Griffin added, referring to Kimmel. “The reason you called me is you know, I’ve been vilified all my career,” she said, joking that she was even spat on by Harry Styles once: “But I asked you to. That’s what he does.”
It is true that earlier this week, Pine was scheduled to be the main guest on Kimmel’s late-night show and skipped the last-minute appearance. Perhaps, as Griffin suggested, it was because he didn’t want to deal with it many controversies going on around his new movie Don’t worry, babymaybe infamous spitting incident at the Venice Film Festival or with whom he was involved Very public feud between Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh. Neither Pine nor Pugh appeared for the movie’s big premiere in New York last weekend.
Griffin spent the rest of her impromptu late evening eagerly flirting with her real celebrity friends, including Monica Lewinsky, who she said revealed to her she was voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 despite their history, and it was Kimmel who invited her for Thanksgiving at her peak “Cancel” to pose with a “bloody” Trump mask.
She said that same year, the Kardashian family invited her over for Christmas, which didn’t stop her from baking them mercilessly for a few minutes. She headlined about the “luxury bag” they gave guests, which included “terrible shoes that ex-husband made” — aka Kanye West’s Yeezys — and jokingly called Kim’s children “North, Saint, Milwaukee and Idaho”.
She seems to be so close to Kris Jenner that she once went to Griffin’s house to confide in her about how difficult it would be to tell Kim that her step-sister Kylie Jenner is officially a billionaire. “This is like the G8 summit, we should do this at the United Nations,” Griffin said. “So I love them.”
