Kathy Griffin Season 2

Kathy Griffin has dinner with Joan Rivers!

Jun 5, 2007

I swear I did not know they were trolling gay bars. As many of you may know, my Dad passed away a couple of months ago. It's obviously been a really tough time, but what's really nice for our family is that, because of the show, we have such a great record of my dad's last weeks -- when he was really himself. So enjoy him on the show. I know I do.

And hey, how about that backstage footage at "The View?" I mean seriously, who knew? What can I say -- they were all getting along that day.

By the way, does everybody know that I bought my own D-List billboard in Los Angeles because Bravo was too cheap to pay for it? Swear to God. And guess how much they cost: $26,000 for ONE MONTH. Jesus Christ. I didn't realize how much money that was until just now, typing it out. I guess I really shouldn't have expected Bravo to pay for a billboard because they wouldn't even pay to film my Carnegie Hall show.

However I must say, that the editing in that segment was superb. Just so you know, I have nothing to do with the editing of the shows so I love watching those moments. I thought they did a great job with that old footage. Hilarious stuff. Come on, admit it: you want to have dinner with Joan Rivers too. Don't act so high and mighty about this.

Seriously, that dinner went on for hours -- there was so much stuff I wish I could have shown you all. We were eating with a bunch of Joan's rich, high society friends and everyone was wearing couture. I loved it. I bought a new Chanel jacket just for the occasion but I got it at an outlet mall so it was out of season and I was covered in sweat, wearing a winter jacket when it was about 73 degrees out.
