The Runs (Book Thoughts: Celebrity Run-Ins, Kathy Griffin)

29503760God knows I love Kathy Griffin, and consider her the later generation Joan Rivers, who I obviously adore. Her latest book, however, “Celebrity Run-Ins” is a total waste. I like the idea – her various interactions with celebrities over the years. I was expecting her biting commentary on each of them. What we get is so mild, and sometimes so inconsequential, and is so off from the ‘persona’ she wants to do with her brand of comedy. She definitely has softened through the years, and I feel like she is now among the celebrities she used to skewer. I guess fame will do that.
