Kathy Griffin Axed By Bravo

At the same time the supposedly most trusted name in news is allegedly pondering giving vulgarian comedienne Kathy Griffin a show on that network, she's just gotten the boot from Bravo.

Such was reported in a Cincinnati Enquirer review of her "performance" at the Taft Theatre Friday:

She buried the lead about the big news in her world, so we will do the same here. Griffin told the crowd that the day before the Taft concert she learned that “Kathy,” her late-night talk show on Bravo, would not be renewed.

The crowd booed when they heard, but Griffin made light of it, predicting the demise of Bravo. But what would that mean for Griffin’s beloved “Housewives?” Talk about cutting off your cosmetically altered nose to spite your face.

Griffin confirmed the news Saturday in a tweet to Perez Hilton:

Isn't it fascinating that Griffin's getting axed by Bravo, but CNN despite her behavior is rumored to be considering giving her a show with Anderson Cooper?

For those that have forgotten, Griffin this past New Year's Eve actually kissed Cooper's crotch on national television.

During the 2009 show, Griffin dropped an F-bomb. The year before she directed a vulgar oral sex reference to a heckler. Last year she stripped down to her underwear.

With that in mind, does her firing by Bravo open the door to CNN?

Perish the thought.
