OUR PICK OF SUMMER’S BEST READS…

BOOKS: SUMMERS BEST - PART 1

KATHY GRIFFIN’S CELEBRITY RUN-INS: MY A-Z INDEX By Kathy Griffin The unfiltered American comic who loves “her gays” is back with a new book that runs through her encounters with celebrities and files them in an A-to-Z format.

The book opens with Woody Allen, where we learn that he never missed an episode of Hannah Montana, through to Renee Zellweger and a case of mistaken identity. These encounters and reminiscences are brief, often only a page or two, and though many are delivered solely for their comic impact, others are genuine tributes to a star’s talent or legend.

Given that Kathy’s brand of comedy relies on her making fun of celebrities, her relations with some of the people she profiles is prickly at best. Case in point, Cathie Lee Gifford who considers her vulgar but, on top of that, the two are plagued by a name confusion issue with both called by each other’s names too many times to count. This name confusion “reached a very surreal apex one August day in 2015 when I began receiving a string of cryptic tweets with a Christian tinge”. Eventually Kathy deduced that Cathie Lee’s husband Frank had passed away and legions of her fans were sending tweets to “a foul-mouthed, gay-friendly atheist… Tears were streaming down my face that day,” Kathy writes. “I’ll let you wonder whether they were from sadness or uncontrollable laughter.”
