Kathy Griffin To Televise Pap Smear
Outrageous comedienne Kathy Griffin is set to test the limits of decency on TV again by televising a pap smear.
The redhead is making the intimate cancer check a public viewing event at the Palomar Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday - and she'll be filming it for her My Life On The D-List reality TV series.
She tells Eonline.com, "We tried to do it in a somewhat classy fashion... but no legitimate news place would let us do it in an even somewhat serious way. So I said, 'Screw it! They can't stop me from doing a pap smear on my own show.' You will not be seeing the actual part of the hoo-ha (vagina) where the speculum will be going, because I don't want to have people vomiting... and I don't want to turn off my gays, so that's why I went and got 'vajazzled', so now I have a row of crystals between my navel and my hoo-ha."
Griffin hopes the televised exam will prompt other women to take better care of their health: "I started talking to girlfriends of mine, my age and younger, and I just can't believe how many women are afraid to get a pap smear or they forget or they've gone 10 years without doing one."
"The message is, if you see me doing something so outrageous - some may say repulsive - that should make it easier for you to pick up the phone and call your doctor and go get one in the privacy of your own doctor's office."
