Seven years have passed since this story, but yes, back then, I remember feeling genuinely taken aback at Kathy Griffin’s divorce:
I thought of it today because once in a while a vision of Griffin saying men are “tough” pops into my head:
KING: Have you dated again?
GRIFFIN: No, I don’t want to — I don’t care about that yet.
KING: Come on, you should be ready.
KING: You should be ready to date, two and a half months.
GRIFFIN: Oh! Have you met men, they’re awful, Larry. Yes, I’m looking right at you.
KING: Men are awful?
GRIFFIN: They’re tough. Oh, if only I could just be a lesbian, oh it would solve everything.
KING: You’d rather be a lesbian?
GRIFFIN: Yes, although I don’t know. I don’t want to find a lesbian that breaks my heart either.
