Kathy Griffin no longer joking about Anna Nicole

Kathy GriffinThe New York Post is reporting that Bravo is editing all of comedian Kathy Griffin's standup specials, because she makes several jokes about Anna Nicole Smith on them.

I actually thought of this when Anna Nicole died, how Kathy Griffin used to joke about Anna Nicole's reality show (and the fact that it would cause Daniel to go into rehab - ouch), how Anna Nicole acted, how she seemed when both of them were guests on The Hollywood Squares. It must be odd when a major part of your act actually dies, tragically and young, and you can't use that material anymore. I'm sure some comedians would still do it, but Griffin doesn't want to because she's genuinely sad about what happened.

Griffin just finished a new special for Bravo titled Everyone Can Suck It.

Ha ha. It's like Kathy Griffin told a "yo momma" joke to someone and the person replied, "My mother died of breast cancer."

If they removed all the lame "jokes" she made about celebrities, they'd be left with 10 minutes of Kathy making fun of herself.

That's... kind of dumb. I can see perhaps editing the ones that haven't aired yet, but to edit the older ones is a little over the top. For better or for worse, Anna Nicole and her sad reality show and tragic ending are a part of pop culture and you shouldn't remove it. Maybe stop airing the specials for a while, but not remove it.

The woman is FUNNY, and she'll be doing just fine without the Anna Nicole jokes.

I mean now she can move on the Britany or Lindsay a bit more. Win Win for all of us, her fans and those who are just learning to like her.

That will be a shame for the few people left in the world that find Griffin funny.
