Kathy Griffin discusses her latest flap with Elisabeth Hasselbeck

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: It’s always a comedy gold mine when humorless people like Elisabeth Hasselbeck of The View and cranky gay Congressman Barney Frank decide to declare war on Kathy Griffin.

Kathy lives for that kind of sh*t!

She chatted with New York Magazine about the recent flap caused by her joking on her show, My Life on the D-List, that Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown’s two daughters were “prostitutes.” This led to a public blast from Barney Frank and to Hasselbeck calling her “scum” on The View.

On confrontations with Hasselbeck: “The first time I was on and I told her to bring it, I thought it was shocking that she had nothing. I thought: “Oh, I think I get this game.” My show is called My Life on the D-List. I would say she’s one click away from being the D-List Ann Coulter. My guess is that that’s who she aspires to be. I mean, I take her criticism very seriously when she calls me scum. I take it as seriously as I do with any other Survivor contestant.
