Kathy Griffin mocks Kim Kardashian in stand-up special
12/21/2011 by Olivia Allin
Kathy Griffin, never one to shy away from saying what's on her mind, spoke out about Kim Kardashian's short-lived marriage in her new comedy special. Griffin's "Tired Hooker" special debuted on Bravo on Tuesday night and she left no insult unturned, calling Kris Humphries the reality star's "special needs boyfriend," mocking the Kardashian sister's voices and reading aloud from Kardashian's letter explaining her divorce to her fans. In the letter, Kim told fans, "I've spent the last few months struggling with my marriage," to which Griffin quipped, "I'm not a mathematician, but I would not say 72 days constitutes a few months." The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star filed for divorce on October 31 at a Los Angeles court, 72 days after getting married to husband Kris Humphries on August 20 in Montecito, California. And though Kim Kardashian was voted the most ill-mannered person of 2011 by the National League of Junior Cotillions for "making a private matter public and disrespecting the institution of marriage," and the Kardashian sisters have now been accused of manufacturing their fashion lines in Chinese sweatshops, the family is still very popular to TV viewers. "Kim & Kourtney Take New York," the latest chapter in the Kardashian reality saga, premiered on Sunday, November 27, and was watched by almost 3.2 million people, marking a 6 percent rise from last year. Last year's premiere of the series, a spin-off of E!'s "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," was watched by about 3 million viewers.
