Bikini Babe Kathy Griffin Honored At 2009 GLAAD Awards

The Annie song, “You’re Never Fully Dressed without a Smile,” comes to mind as I peruse these pictures of toned comedian Kathy Griffin accepting the Vanguard award at the GLAAD Media Awards Show dressed in a bikini on stage. That woman will do anything for her public.

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres picked up a prize for chatting about her wedding day in 2008 to partner Portia de Rossi on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. DeGeneres said to her better half while on stage to accept the Outstanding Talk Show Episode, “Portia, I love you.” As do I, after falling in love with her latest TV character on Better Off Ted.

Desperate Housewives
creator Marc Cherry accepted the best-TV-comedy-series award with his show’s stars Teri Hatcher and Dana Delaney by his side. “I do like when Swoosie Kurtz came on and played the gay boss of Susan,” Teri Hatcher remarked during acceptance of the award. I love that expression. From here on out, I’m going to say, “You’re not the gay boss of me!” Unless, of course, you actually are my gay boss.
