Kathy Griffin steps out in New York City after making an appearance on The View to discuss her Fashion Police exit on Monday (March 16).
“I did a statement because I felt like Fashion Police just wasn’t the thing for me. My style is improvisational and off the cuff, and they have a formula that worked so well with Joan [Rivers], and so well for so long, and it just didn’t fit my thing. And after a while, I kind of felt like I was being forced to comment about pictures of beautiful women in perfect dresses, and say kind of bad things. … As a feminist and a comic, it just didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” Kathy said. “It’s a little different than what felt to me sort of like a dog-pile. I was hoping we could talk about the events themselves and the shows, so I didn’t want to say that Meryl Streep didn’t look great, because she looked great. So sometimes it felt disingenuous to me. … But certainly, in my repertoire, I’ve said heinous things — I’m well aware of that, trust me!”
Kathy also went on Howard Stern‘s show that day as well. Listen to the interview below..
