Kathy GriffinKathy Griffin may have told Chelsea Handler that she stands by her joke referring to Bristol Palin as the "white Precious," but behind the scenes, I'm told the 'My Life On the D-List' star isn't laughing and has privately, and quietly, increased her security following the off-color remarks.

"The Palin family has a unique following of people who either love or hate them," an insider tells me about Bristol, who received death threats during her wildly successful run on 'Dancing With the Stars.' "After the remarks, Kathy is worried about her own security and is taking extra precautions to make sure she is safe."
