On last night's "Kathy," Kathy Griffin stated her panel could not get any gayer than her three guests; Carmen Electra, Margaret Cho and Johnny Weir. As she was doing her live monologue, she spoke about what she did over the weekend. She visited Suzanne Sommers, who is just rolling in dough, as Kathy attested. Kathy said that Suzanne had a mountain, on her 91-acres of property. Kathy said that she now wanted to buy 91-acres of beachfront property whether she can afford it or not. She does not care how much it costs. Suddenly, from backstage, appeared Suze Orman to give her stern words of advice. Suze told her she is in denial, and that she knows how much money Kathy has and a mountain is out of the question.
She went on to ask Suze about how much money other celebrities have. She mentioned all the cars Justin Bieber has; a Fisker Karma, Ferrari, a Range Rover, even a Batmobile! Suze told Kathy that at nineteen, with thirty-five million Twitter followers, he made one hundred million dollars last year; he can have anything he wants. She questioned Suze about some celebrities and the choices they make today, and if they will have money in ten years? Uncle Si from "Duck Dynasty" was first; Suze did not know who he was, but she said anyone who shoots ducks, and people love him will most likely have the money. Then, there was the singer PSY, of the Gangnam Style video which Suze said will not because he likes to spend too much money on clothes. Honey Boo Boo will have money in ten years, Snooki, who Suze said does not look like she will have a pot to pee in when she gets older. Rob Kardashian, who Suze recognized from "Dancing With the Stars," showed a picture before his seventy pound weight gain. Kathy said he has a line of socks, Suze said stocks-not socks were the way to have money for the future. Kathy interjected that this was a comedy show, and she forgot to remind Suze about that fact.
For her guest stars, Johnny and Margaret were dressed in their outrageous best, while Carmen had on a white dress that revealed only her legs, but hugged all of her curves. Margaret told Kathy that when a gay man rises to the scene like Johnny has, she tries to scoop him up before Kathy can and claimed him for herself. She said that Carmen, and she had much in common; as they were both straight but a gay man inside. Johnny admitted that his husband, Victor had a poster over his bed of Carmen for years. Johnny used to say about Carmen, "that bitch was over him more than he was." Kathy had them reenact the poster as Johnny laid on the floor, with Carmen on top of him as the poster girl.
Margaret spoke of her very open marriage to Al Ridenour. Margaret could not imagine herself with one partner for the rest of her life. Johnny prefers to be an "old-fashioned-girl" and he wants to be monogamous for the rest of his life. Carmen is straight, but loves everyone and respects their choices.
Kathy mentioned that the new "Dancing With the Stars" cast was announced. Andy Dick one of the cast members, has been in and out of sobriety. Margaret, former "DWTS" member, knows that this is a difficult show to do, and believes that Andy will be great. Johnny was thumbs down on Andy, and Carmen heard that Mama June from Honey Boo Boo was supposed to be on the show, and is disappointed that she is not; Kathy said she will have to settle for Wynonna Judd. They said that Dorothy Hamill was a member, and both Margaret and Johnny agreed that her famous haircut made them gay.
Kathy and Margaret faced off as their mothers who they both portray in their stand-up acts, both ranted as their mothers about Carmen's ex-Dennis Rodman was in North Korea visiting Kim Jung Un. It was funny and Carmen enjoyed it. Johnny spoke about Bethany's statement that Johnny was jealous of her womanliness when they appeared as judges on "Skating With the Stars," after all, he is a skater and can give his professional opinion of the performances better than she, who is not a skater. Johnny said as an almost-woman, if he wanted to be any woman in the world, it would not be Bethany Frankel.
Kathy asked the panel about body image. Each had an opinion; Johnny felt that he is now eight pounds overweight. Margaret Cho who has battled her weight proclaimed that now that she was old; it does not matter. She is 44-years-old and knows she does not look it because she is Asian. Kathy asked Carmen to tell everyone about the case of advanced bulimia that Kathy hoped she had. However, Carmen said she studied classical ballet, and if they were an ounce overweight they would be chased down the hall and hit if they were not thin enough. Kathy wanted to know where she could sign up for that university? Carmen and Johnny agreed, that the image was something they were obsessed with.
Kathy mentioned Charlie Sheen rescuing Lindsay Lohan again. He will be putting her on his show, "Anger Management." She mentioned that Lindsay was his junkie, and that each of them has at least one junkie. Margaret stated that Kathy had saved several people who are her junkies. Johnny drives his junkie around and has great meals together with this person. Carmen has had many junkies in her life and admits she may have married one.
Next, Kathy had fun dishing on Maury Povich's reality show. The panel each got to walk like a stereo-type who frequently appear on his show; the baby daddy, the slut and the wigger.
There were three audience members who wanted to wow the three-panel members as faux ice skaters in costumes. They had thirty seconds to wow the judges after they saw Johnny and Carmen do their routine. Two men and one woman got to strut their stuff as Johnny presented them faux Olympic medals. For more fun, tune in to "Kathy" on Bravo on Thursday nights.
