Kathy Griffin's Newest Palin to Pounce On? Willow, 16
By Rob Shuter Posted Jan 5th 2011 04:41AM
You would think that after the backlash Kathy Griffin received for making fun of Bristol Palin's weight, the red-headed comedienne would have learned her lesson. Well, think again. Kathy has her eye set on a new Palin to make fun off. "I think it's Willow's year to go down," Griffin snarked to The Hollywood Reporter. "In 2011, I want to offend a new Palin."
With her being only 16, Willow would seem to be a target fraught with disadvantages, but that doesn't matter to Kathy.
"[She] genuinely can't stand any of the Palin family," a friend of Kathy's tells me. "Yet, the real reason she won't leave them alone is she loves all the headlines she gets whenever she attacks them."
What would it take to pry Kathy's claws from the Palin family? My source thinks that if people would just doggone stop caring about the Palins, then Kathy would be the first to move on and "find another victim."
Sure, Kathy does seem to change her target as often as Sarah winks to her fans, but what makes the Palin family different from the other celebrities she drills is that they're. Not. Going. Anywhere.
"No one is more surprised than Kathy that we still care about this family," an insider tells me. "For a while it was Jessica Simpson's weight, Heidi Montag's plastic surgery or 'The Real Housewives' that had us all buzzing. But they have all come and gone."
Let's face it folks, the Palins are in the news daily, and Kathy is way too smart a woman to miss an opportunity to cause trouble. So watch out Willow, sources tell me that what Kathy has planned for you will make the comments about your older sister look like poetry.
It's a Palin Party
