If you watched this year's New Year's Eve with Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin on CNN, you know that Kathy upped her ante considerable from the dick jokes of years past. Hardcore drug references, many quips depicting hottie Anderson Cooper pleasuring himself in front of the mirror and a joyful, happy new year f-bomb marked Kathy's glorious return to the network's special. And we enjoyed every tawdry second of it. CNN, not so much.
At the beginning of the broadcast Kathy waved around a contract that was nearly as heavy as our new year's day hangover, and described the lengthy list of items she could not legally emit during the broadcast. Guess the f-bomb was one of them as now Popeater is reporting that Kathy Griffin is banned by CNN. Guess Kathy can add the rumored banning to her own long list...
“Following her very controversial F-bomb-dropping New Year's Eve hosting gig, CNN executives have decided Kathy Griffin will NOT be getting a 2011 invite. "She was a total embarrassment to the network that calls themselves 'The Most Trusted Name in News.' Even Anderson (Cooper, her co-host) thinks it's time to say goodbye to Kathy," a CNN insider tells Popeater.
“Not only did the potty-mouthed redhead drop the F bomb on live TV, she also made not-so-funny jokes about needing a "bump" of cocaine and asked Cooper if he pleasured himself while looking in the mirror. As sexy as the Silver Fox is ... that's just too much, Kathy,” writes the celebrity gossip website.
Still, we take this news with a grain of salt (swirling a margarita glass, please) as CNN's PR person maintains that no decisions regarding the 2010/2011 broadcast have been made.
Did you watch Kathy and Anderson ring in the new year? What did you think?
