Kathy Griffin: “Jesus Christ, I’ve had beer bashes with bigger celebrities.”
Of her six fellow Celebrity Mole Hawaii cast members, Kathy Griffin says that she thought, “‘Jesus Christ, I’ve had beer bashes with bigger celebrities.’ And I count myself among that list: I’m a proud member of the D list.” For Entertainment Weekly, Kathy talks openly about the cast. “[I]t’s possible that he’s retarded,” she says of Erik von Detten, who she reports “would say stuff like ‘I just wonder when I’m gonna lose my baby face.'” Also, she says Stephen Baldwin and Corbin Bernsen’s appearances on screen are “really good in a superpsychotic way.” The series debuts tomorrow night, and Kathy says she plans to have viewing parties with her gay friends so that she can “celebrate” her “complete humiliation.”
