kathy.jpgStand by for more Kathy Griffin gossip! First we must remind you that we are crazy about Kathy and our affection for her is in no way diluted by her juicy scandals. We’ve always considered her something of a “stand-up gossip” – as opposed to just a standup comic. We relate. Anyway, we just found out what happened to her two “main gays,” Tony and Dennis, who were prominently featured in the first season of “D-List.” We’ve heard the guys wrote jokes for Kathy to use on the red carpet and were inseparable buddies. In fact, we ran into the threesome at the Cher concert at the Hollywood Bowl last year and they were very chummy. But after the first season the guys got tired of not earning money and asked to be paid. They quickly learned that Kathy is the ONLY person paid on that show. And it wasn’t going to change. (As we told you, money is VERY important to Kathy. ) The guys didn’t want to do the second season free and the friendship was abruptly OVER.

    well, that’s not the best report from the red carpet! Kathy is sounding a little bit obsessed with money. Selfish, anyone?
    I will say she wins the knockout award in that gown. 10+
    Now come on Kathy… have a heart!

    No wonder she went crazy when Matt took some of her money, ain’t nobody who gets between Kathy and her $$$$$$

    She is such a jerk. She keeps putting money above everything, even family and friends. I hated how she sounded on Larry King and on her show when she cared more about her house than her nephew/niece. Let’s just say I am no longer a fan.

    I just can’t help being a fan in spite all this. What can I say — she entertains the hell out of me. And i make a point of NOT personally getting to know people whose work I admire — my longstanding rule. So many disappointments along that route! But I still need to know what Matt did with $15 grand per month! Even Kathy doesn’t appear to be quite that high maintenance. If she were, she wouldn’t sleep like a corpse and just get her make-up done more often. And I totally love that she isn’t shy about saying she hates kids and that they are selfish! My sentiments exactly – and so politically incorrect with Hollywood’s baby boom/obsession. I myself get a ton of flack over it if I don’t keep my mouth shut! All in all, Kathy’s a mixed bag of amusing and apalling.

    Its too bad Kathy is so greedy. She lost her friends, her husband and now some of her fans. Hope the money was worth it.

    Boy that’s believable. Her nephew and niece are another two who aren’t going to get squat from her, no matter how much money she amasses. Maybe some cheap plastic crap every once in a while, while they’re still kids.

    Not for one minute do i think that Kathy does not love her niece and nephew..please
    I saw the show they were on and you could tell she loves them and they love her.
    Just because she doesn’t want to be a mother doesn’t mean she is a monster.

    I admire your honesty and skill for calling it as you see it. I, myself, am concidered “brutally honest”. However, I think you may need to rethink the situation with Matt. This is your husband, your confidant, your partner in life. Try and think why it is Matt felt he had to sneak the money rather than asking for it up front. Does he have his own income? Was he made to feel inferior to you?

    I always felt bad for Matt who was at Kathy’s beckon call. I love Kathy’s humor, but Matt was like a puppy dog who followed Kathy around to all her appearances, curled her hair, waited on her hand and foot, etc. When did he have time to have a career? When asked by Larry King what Matt did for a living, she was hesitant to answer, and then when asked if he made good money, she hesitated again. I think Matt got schnookered in this deal. He’s better off without her. She’s the loser in this situation. But I still love her.

    crock of shit. Tony and Dennis sound like the greedy ones. it’s one thing to not be on the show unless paid (thats business) but another thing if they end the relationship (thats personal) last i checked she is the star of the show not the payroll accountant! wake up! coffee anyone?

    Get your facts straight. They were friends for fifteen years. The truth is, they were in the budget for the show- as were her husband and assistant. Kathy did in fact keep the money all for herself. But that wasn’t found out until after they had cut ties. Which was over Kathy’s pettiness and unwillingness to help her friends after they had been spending months covering for her and helping her through her divorce scandal (a year before the news ever broke). They had sacrificed a lot for her and when it came time to reciprocate- in her typical fashion, she only would involve herself if it is self-serving. Say what you want about her “gays”, but it is unfair to cast them as the villains when they just finally woke up and had some self-respect to get away from this D-List snake.

    Um.. I like your ‘marriage is serious’ take, but some of the other outlets have suggested that he was stealing to support a gambling problem. So that make the sitch a little different than a straight up money issue. Gambling is a serious addiction that ruins families and lives and just because they are wealthy doesn’t mean it should be blindly permitted. Of course this is all conjecture…

    Janet, I’m starting to think you have an axe to grind with Kathy. Was that psycho from the Star who got skewered on her show an old friend of yours?

    What I read: He didn’t sneek the money. She knew about it. She gave him a card and the PIN. She’s just mad cause he probably got fed up with her just like America has.

    Everyone on the show should get paid. Kathy probably just thinks because its her show she should get all the money. She brags about her 3mil house but thats because she has kept all the money herself and doesnt even let her husband share in her glory. Even though hes like a puppy dog to her. He is so much better off. Kathy will die ALL ALONE. Greed-Greedy-greedy!

    To the person that suggested this story is not true, why then are the main gays not on the show this season? I was wondering that before I even read this story. Now it makes sense. Plus, Matt looks horribly uncomfortable and sad on this season. I feel bad for him. Screw Kathy.

    You’re wonderful Janet but please don’t take anymore calls from Matt! He needs to stop this Kathy bashing through you and accept responsibility for the mess he’s made of his life.

    lol @ Melissa, the internet couples counselor.
    I don’t know why the gays would want to be paid. The show is about Kathy. What are they supposed to do? Pay every single person that appears on camera? Please.

    Those two guys should have been grateful to have the airtime — and they were so uninteresting when on camera. Snap. She’s what the show is all about. The end.

    Kathy used to sell stories about herself to Janet through a friend. Kathy made the friend split the money with her. Cheap.

    Kathy is more than cheap… she puts money before friends and family. Look how she treated her niece and nephew. She has her assistant pick them up from the airport and doesnt even care what she bought from them. THen her nephew said, thats all KG does is buy them things.. nothing else. Shes greedy and all she cares about is money. YOU GO MATT! good luck.

    I like Kathy, but I LOVE Dennis and Tony. Dennis has written a truly hysterical book featuring Tony and a bunch of their friends as they watch movies and comment upon them…think MST3000. It’s called SCREENING PARTY and it’s WONDERFUL!

    Melissa, do you smoke crack? What possible reason would he have to steal money instead of being honest with his wife and just asking for it?
    Drop dead you stupid bitch.

    Um Poopy… the point is, Kathy is a cheap woman. After emasculating him by making him her slave, she then also asked him to pay his own way. How? She wouldn’t let him work since he was constantly at her beckon call. You owe Melissa an apology.

    Are you mad?!
    How about Matt should think about why he stole from his wife?!
    Who cares how he felt!
    If he would have stole that from a stranger his butt would be in jail!
    Yes, he has his own income, he has his OWN BUSINESS!
    AND he married a celebrity, she was at her height when the ygot married. DOn’t act like poor Matt.
    My boyfriend said that he would rather have someone cheat on him than to steal from him on that scale and level of sneakiness for a year!
    He said at least you could blame sex on heat of passion or something, but systematic stealing???
    Plus it was not like he just stole from her purse, he had to leave the house when she was sleeping.
    AND, why SHOULD she pay her friends?!
    AND they DID get paid to write jokes for her. If they did not want to be on the show, then do not come over while it is taping. Sheesh.
    I think Kathy was generous last season. She got money for joke assistance and gave it to them, her friends, who should have done it for free.

    Her friends should do it for free while she is making loads and benefiting from their help? Get a clue. What world are you living in? She treated Matt like crap and maybe he took the money to get back at her cause he secretly couldn

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
