and it -- it's nice to see fans of all sizes enjoying the ride. >> help me! stop it! stop it! stop it! >> jimmy: the hat, it gives you -- a place to throw up, so -- one more thing. tonight, this network, abc, paid tribute to america's bravest men and women, our fire meb, policemen apolic policemen and first responders.

>> say my name tonight. say it. my real name. >> jimmy: your real name? >> i'm wearing the outfit. you all saw the show yesterday when she took the audience to australia! >> jimmy: oh, you are wearing the outfit. wait a minute. i wish i had my captain -- i would have worn a pie lot's uniform had i known. >> all right, so, i have a little surprise for your audience, jimmy kimmel! >> jimmy: i can't wait to hear it. what is it? >> what you don't know is that this man has got an bus and we are going to west covina! [ cheers and applause ]
>> jimmy: that is exciting. >> all right. >> jimmy: i wonder if anyone would actually go with us if we took a bus to west covincovina. they would? [ cheers and applause ] i'm flattered, but that doesn't say great things about you. how are you? you look lovely. >> i'm here -- this is just basically a hollywood emergency, the fact that i'm here. i'm here to get us through the emotional journey that has just been the last week. we've got snooki's court appearan appearance, we've got oprah's -- and jimmy called me last night crying because he watches the rerun of oprah at 1:05. i just heard the -- i said, jimmy? and then there was five minutes of just crying and we got each other through it. >> jimmy: you got me through it, really. >> i love you, jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] and the vmas. we have so much.
so, first of all, let's just talk about, how are you feeling about oprah's last season? >> jimmy: worried. scared. >> me, too. alone. >> jimmy: i'm feeling -- anger. >> no, that's human. to feel -- angry that oprah's abandoning the two of us. >> jimmy: yeah. >> i don't even know if i trust john travolta anymore. i really don't. i'm questioning that. all right, so -- i'm going to try to not have the fake eyelashes be falling out from the tears and let's move onto the video music awards. >> jimmy: yeah, let's get to that happier topic. >> we have a lot to get to. >> jimmy: did you enjoy? >> of course. i didn't technically attend, but i was on the road -- i'm on the road all the time, and i was doing a double in elizabeth, indiana, at the horse shoe casino, rock on, and -- i wish i was kidding. i'm not. and i actually took a picture of myself watching it and i think you have the photo, because i'm
watching a moment -- >> jimmy: there it is. >> i'm sort of presenting -- i'm basically presenting with cher and lady gaga. >> jimmy: that's -- >> gay heaven. >> jimmy: all the gay icons together at once. >> we had a great time that night. >> jimmy: you did, huh? >> i will tell you, i'm a little confused by the taylor swift song and you have to be careful because on twitter, i'm afraid that the army will turn on me for even making a slight joke, but i will tell you, i thought it was slightly amusing that taylor swift sang a song about can y kanye west's innocence while she was barefoot. i said, give kanye a break, it's not like he raped her. i -- i'm just saying, not as a woman, but as a comedian, it was amusing her see her singing barefoot as if she was afraid, even of shoes, and saying that -- i don't know if
innocence is the word when i think about kanye, so, i went to his twitter, and i know you sometimes follow -- >> jimmy: i do. >> and sometimes you follow 50 cent? >> jimmy: yes, i'm astonished by 50 cent's tweets. >> i don't call them tweets. >> jimmy: what do you call them? oh, i know. >> imagine what's under this pretty skirt. that's what i call them. and by the way -- let's go to west covincovina! all right, so -- i've actually brought with me in my brassiere a 50 credit actual tweet. >> jimmy: that's where you keep them? >> in my bra. you can follow me at at kathy griffin. and get more for you at jimmy kimmel. this is something that i retweeted from 50 cent. solja and fab kicked it. they cool now.
yo [ bleep ] have a nice day [ bleep ]. so, there's -- okay. >> jimmy: you forgot the lol at the end. >> he loves a good laugh. >> jimmy: lol? >> omg. so, what i did today was, on my twitter account, i reached out to the foul lollowers of mine a >> jimmy: i saw that you did that. >> after the show, you should go on at jimmy kimmel and ask them what they want to be called -- >> jimmy: mine are called americans. [ applause ] >> i didn't know that i was a jihadist for suggesting otherwise. can i tell you the top three? >> jimmy: people suggested this to you. >> they would like to be called, either, grifters, it's sort of cute. i really like catheters.
someone said, i make you laugh until you pee. i thought that was edgy. and the one that's the fro front-runn front-runner, a lot of people just want to be called [ bleep ]. >> jimmy: what? >> and i -- i mean, i get it. i think it's cute and it's endearing but i don't see it on a t-shirt -- >> jimmy: it is the front-runner? how will you decide what you're going to -- >> i won't be able to choose that, because, i can't say it. you probably can. it's your show. >> jimmy: i could be, it will be bleeped out. there's no point to it. catheters is very good. with a k, though, right? >> yeah, so -- there won't be any licensing issues. >> jimmy: that's the one to go with. >> there's so much breaking news. >> jimmy: what's broken? >> snooki. her court appearance was must-see television.
>> jimmy: you like that. >> yeah, i do. i feel that it was a miscarriage of justice for her to have -- i would have liked to have been there in the jury with the dynasty hat and the vail sobbing softly, and i did enjoy the judge when he said she seemed like a wannabe lindsay lohan, like that's a bad thing. rock on. awesome, good for her. and i liked her court attire, which was kind of a same leopard dress, but gray, and a little bit less of a bump-it. she did a 50%, out of respect for the court. >> jimmy: for the american legal system. >> which is what you have to do, when you face plant in the sand in miami and you banged the situation again. >> jimmy: she got charged with something ridiculous. >> drunken disorderly -- >> jimmy: disturbing the pleasantness of the beach or some silly charge. >> i concur. i'm going to tweet about it.
>> jimmy: so you were on her side? >> i'm pro-snooki. of course i am. i don't want her to go away. unlike you, i don't want these people to go away. i don't want the housewives to go away. i don't want -- i don't know if you saw the new jersey reunion. >> jimmy: i missed that. >> my favorite cross-eyed andy cohen, which is hysterical because the women don't know who he's talking to. there's a lot going on. >> jimmy: you are starting your own campaign, to get a -- >> i want to be awarded for a grammy again. please buy my cd electronically. please buy it. it's called kathy griffin does the bible belt. you should buy it just because i did a show in knoxville, tennessee, and lived to tell about it. and i want to be dominated for a grammy. >> jimmy: will you wear a dress made of meat? >> yes, i will.
absolutely. >> jimmy: wow, that is -- >> you can name the meat? >> jimmy: really? >> if i get nominated, i will allow jimmy kimmel to name the meat. i will wear whatever -- >> jimmy: i'm thinking maybe -- >> how about that voters? are you naming meats in your head? >> jimmy: a jerkey would be nice. >> don't spoil the surprise. >> jimmy: you have a show in vegas coming up. >> i'm playing at the coliseum on thanksgiving saturday. i'll be in the house of cher. >> jimmy: will cher be there? >> if she is, maybe she'll be in a kathy griffin, i don't know. she could be there. >> jimmy: i would not blame her. >> should i tweet that? >> jimmy: tweet that she will be there. >> i'll put on my meat pajamas and tweet it tonight. >> jimmy: well, if you like to read kathy's thoughts, they are all contained in this book, completely.
oh, and see kathy in san francisco. it's sold out, so you can't go to it. we'll be right back. kathy griffin, everybody. if you think all batteries are the same, consider this: a tornado hits, air life denver takes off... their night-vision goggles keeping the rescue mission safe... and powering those goggles-- the only battery air life trusts:

sitcom pretty much. it's a relationship comedy. it's, you know, two sisters at the core, two very different stages of their romantic relationships, i'm in a fast-moving, you know, crazy relationship where i meet a guy, get engaged, maybe a little knocked up, and, i mean, i don't know how you can kind of be knocked up, but -- it's usually a definite thing. >> jimmy: you're pregnant in the show? >> i am. do you have to wear, like, fat things and stuff? >> oh, yeah. yeah. and the boob situation is so good. i tried on -- yeah. first trimester boobs is good. first time i ever really had to wear a bra, other than in '91 when my mom said it was time. >> jimmy: nick must go crazy over that. >> yeah. and it really -- i mean, i go crazy. there are some pictures on my blackberry of my fake -- >> jimmy: post them. let kathy griffin put them on twitter. >> i'm actually starting to
twitter. >> jimmy: it's the hot thing to do. i might have to stop. >> i've seen your boobs. my second trimester are the kimmel. >> jimmy: maybe you can wear the stomach, too. a curse on the yankees! i hope they get knocked out in three games! >> you're an honorary wife now. how can you say that? >> jimmy: i'm more of an honorary yankee bitch. >> that's a story i want to know about you. >> jimmy: nice to meet you. i hope things go swimmingly with the show. the show is "better with you." right here on abc, wednesday night at 8:30. joanna garcia, everybody. we'll be right back with brandon flowers. a lot of people think fiber can.
