Don’t get me wrong. I love love love Kathy Griffin and I thinks she is super-hilarious! Similarly, I love Anderson Cooper as well. The combination of both on New Year’s Eve every year is like a dream come true. They are fun to watch, Kathy Griffin pushes the envelope a little bit at a time, and Anderson Cooper gets embarrassed. What’s wrong with that?
Kathy Griffin has dropped the F-bomb, try to go naked in her underwear at different times that they hosted the New Year’s Eve special. But last New Year’s Eve, after the ball had dropped, Kathy pretended that she actually grabbed Anderson’s crotch and also pretended to go down on him. It made Anderson uncomfortable but he laughed the whole thing off.
It didn’t go the same way for the Parents Television Council though:
“[Kathy Griffin] has shown increasing contempt for the audience through her obscene and unhinged behavior,” the Council said in a statement. “The onus is now on CNN. Either the network has a policy that allows its on-air talent to fondle a co-anchor’s genitals, or it has a policy that forbids such conduct.”
So, how do you think Kathy would respond to that?
