Back to interview week where Modern KG (the original reader of this blog) asks the following: If you could be friends with one Bravo reality show cast member who would it be?
Bravo TV may be the glue that holds KG and my friendship together, and I think she asked that question knowing the answer. I should mention that I have a favorite cast member of pretty much every Bravo reality show that exists: I want Tim Gunn to dress me and be my life coach. I would stare into Harold Dieterle's pretty blue eyes while he seared Kobe beef which I would then eat with Ted Allen (and we'd be served wine by our sommlier Stephen Asprinio). I would later want to party on the town with my gal pals Jo de la Rosa, Jeana Keough and Bethenny Frankel.
But there is one Bravo reality show cast member that is higher on my list than even Tim Gunn, and that is the one, the only D-List modern gal extrodinaire. Kathy Griffin.
Why do I love Kathy Griffin? Let me count the ways. She's a sassy redhead (I always wanted to be a redhead, and I'm still working on perfecting the sassy part). She has no problems saying what she thinks about people and she's an equal-opportunity basher of the people who deserved to be made fun of just a little and that includes herself. She's a dog person (sorry cat people). She's technically Catholic. The gays are her people. And when her father died, she had everyone in an Irish town with the surname Griffin come by the local pub so she could buy them each a pint. That's a woman to be respected.
My friend KG (not to be confused with Kathy Griffin) have been plotting ways how we could work our way onto Team Griffin with Jessica, Tiffany and Tom. I even went so far as to dream about it one night (I think it came down to KG and I offering to drive her tour bus). We would have no problem being the assistants to the assistant to the assistant and we'd be happy to scoop Kathy's dogs' poop. KATHY, JESSICA, TIFFANY or TOM: IF YOU'RE OUT THERE -- PLEASE HIRE KG AND THE MODERN GAL.
