Kathy Griffin‘s made a career out of skewering pop culture — and now, she’s got her “act next door.”
The comedian stopped by The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday to promote her latest book, Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z Index, and revealed that she’s neighbors with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Despite camera crews in and out filming Kardashian’s reality show, “they’re so quiet. It is hilarious. They are the best neighbors,” Griffin said. “I almost never hear anything, because I really think the last thing they want is trouble from me. I think it’s their real life, it’s not their public life, their power couple — and I really think they’ve got Taylor Swift to worry about, and I’m the least of their worries.”
“We have talked about who sees each other naked more,” she added.
“You see her naked?” Stern asked.
“I have not, but when I went over last week one of the first things I said was, ‘So are you just sick and tired of seeing me naked all the time?’ And she was like, ‘No, I thought you saw me naked all the time,'” Griffin said.
Astonished that Kimye grants Griffin access to their mansion, Stern suggested they may be mistaking her with a TODAY Show host.
“Do you think it’s possible that your neighbors Kim and Kanye think you’re Kathy Lee Gifford, and that’s why they’re letting you in their house?” he joked.
“I think they think I’m Reba,” Griffin said. “I get that a lot.”
One celeb Griffin does hang with is Sharon Stone, whose election night gathering she attended. Once it became clear that Donald Trump had won the electoral vote, the stars joined forced to lighten up the mood.
“Of course we’re both Hillary fans, and when it started to go horribly wrong she would say, ‘Dance break,’ and both of us took our tops off and we were just shaking our t**s,” Griffin said.
As for her book, Griffin admitted she had to cut an anecdote about a Stern Show favorite, Baba Booey.
“I thought it was a really cute story, and once again, I was determined to do a story about everyone but you. But it was the time, you probably don’t remember this, but a million years ago when Baba Booey, you and I all colluded to call my mom at 5 in the morning and ask her if she takes it up the butt for my dad,” she told Stern. “And the publishers were like, ‘I don’t get it.’ They felt like Gary was a little …”
“B-list?” Stern offered.
“Boring,” Griffin said. “They felt like it didn’t have the Robin [Quivers] It Factor.”
