Kathy Griffin’s 17-Minute Rant On TMZ’s Harvey Levin & Bravo’s Andy Cohen

If you are into celebrity feuds, you may be interested in this video posted by Kathy Griffin who is apparently persona non grata everywhere after her “beheaded Trump” schtick some months ago.

Over 17 minutes, Griffin gets around to trashing Harvey Levin of TMZ, Jeff Zucker of CNN, Andy Cohen of Bravo and more.

Watch below as it’s currently trending all over the interwebs.

And all the while, Andy Cohen (who has replaced Griffin for CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast) played dumb during an airport interview saying he didn’t know who Kathy Griffin is.

(He was the Bravo executive who oversaw her show My Life On The D-List).

Speaking to Andy Cohen on SiriusXM’s “Radio Andy,” Arrow/Teen Wolf star Colton Haynes candidly shared personal details about his dating life including losing his virginity at the age of 13 to both a girl and a guy, albeit separately, and being set up on fake dates in Hollywood to hide his sexuality.

• “I lost my virginity at 13 to a girl and a guy. I’ve never said that before. The girl was two years older than me, and the guy was, I would say, around 16. Everyone participated. It was a real first time. It was exciting.”

• “I was literally told from the day that I moved to Los Angeles that I could not be gay because I wouldn’t work. Then I was with my management team and a team of people that just literally told me I couldn’t be this way. They tried to set me up with girls. I was rumored to date Lauren Conrad (of The Hills) for six months because they were kind of angling a story. And then I dated every other young person which of course I didn’t date.”

Haynes said his “dates” all understood what was going on. “They knew the whole time. It was like a Tab Hunter situation.”

Andy Cohen On Being The Only Openly Gay Late Night Talk Show Host

In an interview with Mic, Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen is asked about his experience with LGBT media. Apparently, Andy reads the Comments sections…

I think they’ve been fine. Any time there’s ever been an article about me on any gay sites the comments are always just the meanest you can imagine… but that might be par for the course. I’m proud to be the only openly gay late-night talk show host.

I’m now going into my eighth year of this so whether gay people like that or they don’t like it, I do know that there are young gay men across the country who maybe come to my book signings or have dinner with my mom and say “it’s touched me that I’ve been able to see a gay guy in late night.” So ultimately I can’t get too invested in what the comments say or what the gay media says because if there can be kids watching and thinking “oh wow, look, that guy is gay and he has this show and everything seems okay with him” then that should be the important thing.

Cohen also defended the diversity (or lack thereof) in Logo’s upcoming Fire Island reality TV show:

If it were the only show about gay people on television then maybe that would be a topic of conversation, but we live in 2017, and there are gay people of every shape and size on many different shows. Have you ever been to Fire Island? It’s pretty white and chiseled. That’s what it largely looks like there. If we went somewhere else, it would probably look different. I think we should be happy with having another representation of ourselves on television. Maybe people should look at the how before they start protesting it.

Check out the full interview over at Mic.
