Kathy Griffin’s Pretend Sex Act on Anderson Cooper Really Wasn’t Funny (VIDEO)

Eye Roll 17

If you happened to be watching CNN's New Year's Eve special with hosts Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper, you probably have an image seared in your mind that you prefer had never, ever made it there in the first place: Kathy simulating oral sex on Anderson. Not just once, not twice, but at least half a dozen times. Whyyyyyyy? you ask. Ohhh, I don't know. This is Kathy Griffin. She makes a living from being vulgar. Maybe she hit the bubbly a bit too hard?

Kathy leaned her mouth over Anderson's privates several times. She also told him she wanted to "tickle" his "sac." To which Anderson, trying to be a good sport, responded, "I have no sack of Christmas presents here." To which Kathy then said she wanted to kiss his "sack of Christmas presents."

I guess this was all supposed to be funny because Anderson is gay and Kathy is famous for "loving my gays" as she puts it. I doubt this would have been considered too amusing if she was doing this to, say, Matt Lauer (though I wouldn't put anything past Kathy). But, frankly, it just wasn't very funny. Hello, Kathy. Anderson has NO interest in you, girl. He doesn't even want you down there as a joke.

Maybe if she'd done it one time, it would have been considered daring humor. But over and over again? What is so funny about embarrassing your friend on live TV, in front of not only his fans, but his employers? Granted, CNN must know that Kathy isn't exactly a sure bet as far as family-friendly entertainment goes -- Kathy and Anderson have hosted CNN's special six years in a row, and she hasn't gone one year without causing an uproar. One year, she took off her shirt. Another, she dropped the f-bomb.

The whole thing was just lame, not daring. And on another note, Kathy's face is as tight as a kettle drum. I'm surprised the woman can still use her mouth at all, let alone give a blow job.

What do you think of Kathy's antics?

Kathy Griffin is really provocative and that was definitely inappropriate. That must have been really embarressing for Anderson. Kathy will always remain on the D-list.

I can't stand Kathy Griffin she is so annoying.

Sometimes she is funny but that wasnt.

She is SO annoying! They replayed a montage of the night on CNN last night, and the whole thing was cringe-worthy. I hope she was drunk because if not, the only solution is a personality transplant. Embarrassing.

She's gross and not funny.


It was immature. Now Kiri I would be interested to know your age. You see I find that last little nugget you dropped to be just plain mean. Women are always damn if they do and damn if they don't. If they choose to forgo surgery and hair color we read about it (how did she let that happen to herself),if she has a bit of work done we read about it(well she's obviously had work done no way in hell she could look like that for her age). I'm not talking cat lady surgery just a freshening. Funny how when the man who had surgery to look like a lion died most comments were sympathetic and now we have Kiris' thought bubble. Nice. Don't age Kiri or you'll be in for a big surprise for what the body can and will do no matter what a good conservationist you've been.

Yuck.  Why would we want to hear about that from her or anybody?

How sad.  Such a double standard that a woman can do this to a man and get away with it.  He was clearly uncomfortable but had to "laugh it off" to continue doing his job.
