She might not have had much to say for herself during her three month stint on “Dancing With the Stars”, but Bristol Palin is wasting no time now hitting back at her critics.
Message: beware of making a Bristol Palin joke — especially if it’s on national television.
The latest celebrity to get the pushback from Bristol is comedian Kathy Griffin, who joked at a concert for U.S. troops at the weekend that the oldest daughter in the Palin clan was “the only contestant in the history of the (“Dancing with the Stars”) show to actually gain weight”.
In fact, suggested Griffin, 50, (who incidentally was showing off her crash-diet new figure in a military-style bikini), Bristol was “like the white ‘Precious’,” in a reference to the obese black teen star of the acclaimed 2009 movie.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton began his rise to fame by gossiping online about the adventures — and misadventures — of Hollywood’s bold and beautiful but now he finds himself being talked about with a musical about him set for the stage.
From August 8-14, “Perez Hilton Saves the Universe! (or at least the greater Los Angeles area): The Musical” is running at the New York International Fringe Festival. Organizers describe the show as exploring a normal day in Hilton’s life – well, were it not for the plans of evil terrorists and Kathy Griffin. Throughout the day, Hilton wrestles with the demons of love, ego and celebrity, all whilst saving Los Angeles from an imminent nuclear disaster, with a pop music backing.
