One of the saddest things to come out of the tragic death of Anna Nicole Smith is the loss of really funny jokes at her expense by Kathy Griffin. Kathy, the star of the hilarious Bravo show, My LIfe On The D-List, has almost made a living out of mocking Anna Nicole, but we won't see any of those jokes any more.
The New York Post is reporting that Bravo has shelved two of Kathy's specials and are re-editing two others to de-Anna Nicole-ify them. In one of the specials, Kathy talked about what it must be like to have Anna Nicole as a mother.
"You don't recover from your mother being Anna Nicole Smith," referring to Smith's son, the late Daniel Smith. "It's over. See you at Promises (the Malibu rehab center)."
Yeah, I can see why that might be offensive. But no one is disagreeing with Bravo's decision to remove the material, least of all the firecracker comedian whom I worship: "They've got loads and loads of extra material [if they want to use that instead]," says Griffin, who just finished taping her fifth Bravo special called "Everybody Can Suck It."
I know everyone out there thinks Kathy is so mean, but she isn't. This proves that she does have a heart and is compassionate and boy, is she freaking funny.
