Kathy Griffin is slowly but surely making her way back into the entertainment world following her catastrophic PR move where she posed alongside a bloodied prosthetic version of Donald Trump’s head. Reportedly, the comedienne will appear in several productions in New York and Washington this year.
Additionally, Kathy found herself at the center of more celebrity-tension when she and Andy Cohen were fighting. However, notably, Andy Cohen merely joked that he didn’t know her – in allusion to a joke á la Mariah Carey – and Kathy’s response was overkill.
During an appearance on Real Time With Bill Maher, Griffin said she would be delivering performances at New York City’s Carnegie Hall as well as the Kennedy Center in Washington.
Griffin stated she is slowly getting back into performing all over the globe, despite the Trump family not wanting her to have an illustrious career.
As it was previously reported, Griffin apologized for the photo at first but later went on to recant that same apology. As a result of the incident, executives over at CNN forced her resignation from CNN’s New Year’s Eve show.
Love her or hate her, Kathy was correct in her intimation that the public would soon forget what she did as she is now slowly moving back into the scene.
Not long after the controversy began, Kathy said that as a result of the photo, she had been “blacklisted” in Hollywood. Kathy admitted that, while in other countries, she has plenty of work but in the United States she has no paid opportunities.
And while what happened to her career at the beginning stages of the PR disaster was tragic, one could only assume that she had learned her lesson.
However, as it was noted earlier in the article, Kathy has since taken back her apology and feels she is entitled to “have her life back.” The comic is unwilling to work in small clubs again just because her reputation is temporarily tarnished in the United States.
