Kathy Griffin May Lose New Years Gig Over Bristol Palin Comments

Kathy Griffin’s little crack at Bristol Palin at a rally for the troops this past weekend may have cost her one of her annual hosting gigs!

While hosting VH1 Divas Support the Troops this past weekend, Griffin was showered with “boos” as she made a joke that Bristol Palin had gained about 30 lbs. per week while appearing on Dancing With the Stars.

Kathy caught flack from CNN last year for her wild antics, but the shows producers of their New Years Eve special with Anderson Cooper were willing to give her another chance until the Bristol comments came out.  An insider explains:

“CNN executives … were considering giving her another chance. That was until her Bristol weight comment a few days ago that reminded everyone exactly why they had barred her in the first place.”

That’s too bad, but we have a feeling she’s standing by her words, and will find another hosting gig.

Nice to see the political channels backing politics on this one!

    Well, this sucks. I was looking forward to watching Kathy and Anderson go at it again this year. They’ve been a hoot the past three years. But, I guess that’s what happens when you put your foot in your mouth. Even though I love Kathy to death, sometimes she needs to keep her mouth shut.
