Fearless comedienne and television personality Kathy Griffin knows how to walk on the edge. She is far from shy when it comes to gaining publicity, getting banned from shows and for her inappropriate yet hysterical jokes. Known for her less than conservative ways and for her numerous attention seeking scandals, here are her top 10 most outrageous moments.
10.) Official Book Club Selection
Kathy does not hold back to anything or anyone. She wrote a memoir called Official Book Club Selection, named after Oprah Winfrey’s book club. Even though it never made Oprah’s cut, it did make it to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.
9.) Tackled The View’s Elizabeth Hassleback
Kathy thrives in moments like these. While being interviewed on The View back in 2010, she was confronted by one of the opinionated hosts, Elizabeth Hassleback. Since then, she has not been invited back to the show.
8.) Dated Levi Johnston
Of course this would be another way for Kathy to attract attention to herself, and it worked. She pretended to date Levi, Bristol Palin's ex-boyfriend.
7.) The Joan Rivers Roast
Kathy was not afraid of crossing the line to slam Joan Rivers in 2009. She took the joke to a whole new level even for her own standards. Joan wasn't pleased at all to say the least.
6.) Fake Sex Tape
Going along with the sex tape trend that made so many famous, Kathy made her own version of a sex tape. In her non-sex version of a sex tape, she shows up in her bra.
5.) Stripped on David Letterman Show
Stripping seems to be something Kathy really loves to do on television. Maybe for ratings, maybe for publicity. She appeared on the show in 2012 and gave viewers a big glimpse of most of her skin after unzipping her dress during the interview.
4.) Public Pap Smear
In 2010, Kathy had a pubic pap smear to raise awareness on her show, My Life on the D-List.
3.) Dissed Jesus
Kathy left behind her Irish-Catholic upbringing and dissed Jesus while giving her acceptance speech at the Emmy Awards.
2.) Tried to make a sexual advance at Anderson Cooper on New Year's Eve
Once again Kathy was feeling scandalous and frisky during New Year’s Eve and tried to make some sexual moves on Anderson Cooper live on CNN. Anderson handled it like a champ by asking her if she dropped something but nonetheless it was awkward.
1.) New Year’s Eve On Air Strip
One of her most scandalous moments was when she stripped during New Year’s Eve with journalist Anderson Cooper on CNN. This was not your typical CNN moment but she sure lives for moments like these. The ratings soared.
