Joan Rivers Hated Kathy Griffin – EXCLUSIVE
Friends of Joan Rivers were shocked to hear Kathy Griffin ranting about how little respect E! gave to Joan on ‘The Fashion Police’ after the legend’s death. That’s because when she was alive, Kathy didn’t treat Joan so well.
“Joan and Kathy had a strange relationship. Joan had mixed feelings about Kathy, even hating her when she refused to make a guest appearance on her ‘WE-TV’ show with daughter Melissa,” sources tell Straight Shuter. “Joan loved seeing woman comedians succeed but Kathy made their friendship seem much closer than it really was.”
Plus, friends are still shocked at the way Kathy campaigned to replace Joan on E! just after she died. “It somehow felt disrespectful. Kathy was only thinking about Kathy,” adds another pal.
