Kathy Griffin’s got books to sell and here’s how she’s going to get you to buy them—by teasing anecdotes about talking to a very drunk Jon Hamm. Dammit, I clicked...
Radar Online has some new excerpts from Griffin’s new “tell-all,” Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index, in which she describes sitting next to Hamm at a small dinner party at her manager’s house while Mad Men was still on the air.
“He proceeded to get very drunk during the coffee table portion, and then when it came for dinner, Sue had sat him next to me,” she says.
During a conversation with Nicholson, Hamm interrupted with “boozy yammering.”
“First it was, ‘You know your Emmy isn’t a real Emmy,’” Griffin claims. “I let that one go, but then he whispered, ‘You’re so o-o-o-old.’”
Never one to take an insult, she says she snapped back: “You can’t keep up. You’re outclassed. Now zip it; Jack’s talking!”
She goes on to insult Hamm: “He’s one of these hot guys who’s mildly funny but actually thinks he’s comedian level funny,” she writes. “You know the type — there’s probably one in your office or family. He just reeks of that. It’s an entitled air. When Hammy wants to be funny, he’s, well, not.”
Hamm ultimately checked in to rehab after the show finished its run.
The wonderful thing about this country is anyone, even Kathy Griffin, is free to call Jon Hamm an asshole, whether he is or not. Personally, I call him Jon Hamm, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.
Justin Bieber punched a fan in the face this week in an incident caught on camera and published by TMZ, if you can even believe it. From the footage, it looks like the fan had reached his hand through Bieber’s open car window and appeared to be gently touching the hormonal Canadian boy’s chest when Bieber jabbed him so hard the kid started bleeding, in case you were not fluent in English or body language and still wondering what Bieber thought of his fans.
On the other hand, Bieber’s best music traditionally peaks when everyone fucking hates him, so play on player, play on.
Speaking of narcs (I’m talking about Kathy Griffin), the Sun—the only account worth following (besides Clickhole and Scottish twitter)—reports
Madonna’s 16-year-old son Rocco was busted for smoking weed after his fed-up neighbors called the cops.
They were furious after spotting Rocco, son of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels director Guy Ritchie, “smoking or doing drugs” in their posh neighbourhood.
Sources said cops were alerted and saw the 16-year-old sitting on a wall with a male pal. As they approached, Rocco was seen tossing something away. Officers are said to have noticed traces of cannabis on his clothes.
And when they opened his rucksack they found a small amount of the Class B drug.
“Rocco has become a well-known figure in the neighbourhood and not for the right reasons. He’s been repeatedly seen acting suspiciously,” a source tells the paper.
What kind of moron sees Lock Stock and then narcs on the creator’s son? You’re fooked, mate.
