Kathy Griffin slams Amal Clooney in 'Fashion Police' debut
UPI News Service, 01/14/2015
Kathy Griffin slammed Amal Clooney on Monday's episode of Fashion Police.
The 54-year-old actress made unflattering remarks about the 36-year-old lawyer's ensemble at the 2015 Golden Globes. The awards show special marked Griffin's debut as a replacement host for Joan Rivers on the E! series.
"I thought it was weird she had those gloves that remind me of, like, a porn scene where the guy goes home and there's the naughty dishwasher and she only has the gloves," she said of Clooney's choice of accessory.
"I'm fascinated how we're like, not supposed to make fun of her because she married the great George Clooney," she continued of the barrister. "Look, everybody's on the table, George! Nobody's safe, nobody gets a pass."
Griffin was confirmed to replace Rivers in December, and will co-host with Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and Brad Goreski. Rivers starred on the program until her death in September 2014, and Rancic shared a tribute to the comedian ahead of Monday's episode.
"I think what will shock people the most is that we have never worked together, yet I feel like we work really well together," Rancic told E! News of new co-hosts Griffin and Goreski. "We just have great chemistry together and I think that comes from not being afraid to disagree with each other."
Griffin came to fame as Vicki Groener on NBC sitcom "Suddenly Susan," and subsequently appeared on her own Bravo reality series, "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List." The actress hosted "The Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers" in 2009.
