On last night's hit Bravo show "Kathy," Kathy Griffin hosted three familiar stars from television, along with her adorable mother and assistant Tiffany.
As the episode opened, she had her mother hooked up to a lie detector with a certified specialist supervising the questions and answers. She had a segment of her own "Law and Order" Kathy Griffin Edition, where she found a member of her staff lying on the bathroom floor. She brought in the forensic dog who promptly liked the fake blood from his shirt. Then she interviewed other staff members to see who was guilty. The interrogation process included genital shocks administered by she and her assistant Tiffany.
As her guests were introduced, the audience was thrilled as they entered with a "Charlie's Angels" pose. Michelle plays a bitch on "Gossip Girl" and Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman which are husband and wife. Kathy asked her good friend, Megan to do her "Karen" voice from the hit show she starred on for seven years; "Will and Grace." Nick currently stars on "Parks and Recreation." Kathy asked the guests what was their usual airport question? A question asked by strangers as they were going through an airport. Michelle said people told her that she was much prettier in person and ended the question with a groan.
In the segment called, "Explain This," Megan had to explain a photo of her and Rob Lowe with 1980s big hair as they embraced. Nick had to explain a picture of him holding a large item that was pixilated and not explained. The picture of Michelle was when she was an adorable child with Amanda Bynes from an old television show.
Kathy discussed the new pope and asked if the guests were Catholic. Michelle told her that she attended Catholic school as a child, but is Jewish and the reason was because the Catholic school tuition was cheaper than the Jewish one, which she said was probably "Jewier" on the part of her parents. Nick was an altar boy, and Megan was Catholic until she was nine years old; when she refused to attend Sunday school, Kathy also admitted that she was a fallen Catholic.
Asked why Nick has never been on "The View?" Nick replied that he has never been invited. Kathy has been banned from that show, and Bravo bleeped out what Kathy had to say about the cast. She prodded Michelle to admit to whom she dated in the past and was greeted with the double middle finger from Michelle. She told Kathy that she did not prefer to talk about her exes. She did mention the initials PW, who Kathy said was Pete Wentz, musician from "Fall Out Boy." Michelle then told Kathy that she would stab her to death. When Kathy said that she would be the commercial for next week's show saying that; both Megan and Nick told her they would kill her too and called her a bitch.
Kathy showed a clip from Spike of "Bar Rescue," where host Jon Taffer went toe-to-toe with a bar owner who insulted his staff. Kathy then brought up that Michelle had a fight with Ashley Simpson in a bar sometime ago. Michelle said that she never mentioned it but said it was a "Google-able" occurrence. Nick was a bouncer a while back, and Kathy asked how he knew that a fight was going to happen. He replied that hair stood up on the back of their necks, and they started to form a circle; then she asked if he was a bouncer at a dog pound?
Kathy was then hooked up to the lie detector, and the guests asked her questions tweeted to the show. Megan asked if she secretly liked the Kardashians? Kathy said yes, but it was a lie. Nick asked if she was sexually attracted to Ryan Seacrest? She said yes and it was true, but Kathy said it was a nightmare. Michelle asked if she slept with more than five black guys? Yes was the reply and it was true. They opened the envelope with the results of whether her 92-year-old mother was drunk, and the answer was yes. Poor Maggie, she takes so much teasing for the sake of comedy.
