Kathy Griffin´s Bristol Palin fat joke has cost her work

Kathy Griffin has cost herself a job. The Hollywood funnywoman apparently won’t get her old job back on CNN’s New Year’s Eve special after she told fat jokes about Bristol Palin at the recent Divas Salute the Troops event.

“CNN executives … were considering giving her another chance,”  a source told the Pop Eater website.

“That was until her Bristol weight comment a few days ago that reminded everyone exactly why they had barred her in the first place.”

During a recent radio interview, the Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List star recalled her first brush with greatness.

“I’ve had many brushes with greatness,” she said. “I was in a movie that wasn’t received well but it was called Shakes the Clown and it had a cameo with Robin Williams so I got to see him in the make-up room and see him in rehearsal. And that was really exciting to not just see a celebrity in a restaurant across the room but to actually see somebody work and the process. It was very exciting. And I remember it fondly because my dad was still alive and he and my mom visited me on the set and they brought folding chairs because they thought it was okay to just go to a set and just put up folding chairs and drink wine and watch everything. But Robin Williams kind of put on a little show for them and it was really sweet and I always will think of him fondly for that.”

“I grew up in Oak Park, Illinois,” she added.

“But I was so enamored with Hollywood that once I moved to California I just thought I was going to get my own TV show within a week. And when I hear about young actresses and actors that have that experience, I want to punch them in the face. When I hear about actresses that say, ‘You know, I moved out to L.A. from Kansas and I didn’t get my first job till I was here for a week’, I want to then punch them in the face.”
