A couple months ago, I surprised Ernie with Kathy Griffin tickets. Last night was the night! A lovely time together and break from creating all our art. 🙂 We had pretty cool balcony seats. This was my best, most focused shot. Not bad!
She opened the show with “Fuck the Olympics!” She went there for a brief glorious moment–and then moved on to all the other topics she had to cover. Like Oprah, Whitney, Miley (who totally deserved the KG treatment!), Barbara W, MJ, Paula, Britney, Levi Johnston (her new “boyfriend”) and of course, the Gosselin’s! Her fave Gosselin kid is OUR favorite Gosselin kid. I knew we were in sync. 😛
When it ended, were like Oh! Then looked at the time, and it was almost 10:00. We’d been hanging out for a couple hours like old friends just shootin’ the shit where time slips away and you end up staying up all night talking the time away. There could’ve been hours more!
We watch her specials and show on Bravo, and that’s amazing, but she’s still this image coming out of our TV’s. All these other people she talks about come to us in various media outlets–TV, online, our music delivery media of choice, and they all seem a little unreal after a while. But having Kathy with us in the same room was a reminder that we’re all people in this world and we’re talking about what some of them are doing. I just felt this deeper connection to all the craziness.
So, thank you Kathy Griffin!
