Two-time Emmy award winning comedian Kathy Griffin remembers her friend Joan Rivers in this special interview with Larry King, offering a rare glimpse into the life of the beloved comedian on the latest episode of the Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now”. Plus, Kathy on Ray Rice, why CBS didn’t consider her for Ferguson’s gig & her quest to get Anderson Cooper fired.

Kathy sat down with Larry and addressed a NY Post article suggesting that she was gunning to fill Joan Rivers' shoes on "Fashion Police" while Rivers was still in a coma, “It’s disgusting. It’s not true. And I know that stuff shouldn’t bother me at this stage of my career -- you know, I thought I’d heard it all -- but that one hurts, because it’s as far from the truth as you can get.”

The Grammy winner dished on the surprising reason she says CBS didn’t consider her as a replacement for Craig Ferguson. Kathy also sounded off on the recent late-night shakedown “I’m not happy that another middle-aged white guy got the job, but he is obviously a very, very funny guy.”

When Larry questioned whether the backside on Kathy Griffin’s album cover is her, the comedian offered him some very ‘cheeky’ proof.

The hilarious stand-up comic concluded her interview by answering social media questions from some of her biggest fans, including what she and Joan discussed during their last dinner, the dating advice she offered Kathy and what the world doesn’t know about Ms. Rivers.
