Kathy Griffin is the biggest bitch on the planet. Or not. She wants you to think so, then doesnt, then most emphatically does. Wed call the comedian passive-aggressive, except theres nothing passive about her. Shes a combat guerrilla with orange locks.
Look, were not much for standup comedy, but this titian-haired spitfire, as one anonymous scribe deliciously described her, makes even us true non-believers howl with delight, from her cameo in Pulp Fiction to her role as a nurse in an Eminem video to her Sally Weaver turn on Seinfeld to the true-life tale about shaking the right hands of Afghani men in her 2004 concert video Allegedly.
The star of Bravos smash My Life on the D-List makes others howl, too, but mostly not with delight. She dissed Jesus at the Emmys (the comment was satirical, but naturally misinterpreted by most), and is always sticking black-magic pins in her favorite A-list voodoo dolls, including her special pets Gwyneth Paltrow, Barbara Walters, and Lindsay Lohan.
