Kathy Griffin Wants Nothing To Do With Lawyer Lisa Bloom Anymore

Clive Davis pre-Grammy Gala & Salute to Industry Icons honoring Debra l. Lee

When Kathy Griffin got in trouble for her bloody Trump head art piece/attention grab/what have you back in May, one of the first things she did was lawyer up. Kathy called Gloria Allred’s lawyer daughter Lisa Bloom, who promptly set her up with an apology-filled press conference. Since then, Kathy has lost work and lost friends. She has also lost Lisa Bloom as her lawyer, but according to Kathy, it was her choice.

Yesterday, Kathy tweeted a message to Lisa Bloom, politely asking Lisa to please stop blowing up her phone.

The Daily Mail says that Kathy’s tweet is most likely in reference to a video she posted last week on Facebook about her experience with Lisa Bloom. The video no longer exists on Kathy’s Facebook page, but do I even have to tell you that Kathy was unsatisfied with Lisa’s services?

“There’s right and wrong, and I think it’s time to expose some stuff. I hired her for a couple of days during my Trump mask scandal. It didn’t go well. If you want my Lisa Bloom statement, anybody, OK, here it is. Yes, I got Bloomed. Yes, I did not have a good experience with her. I felt that she and her husband exacerbated my personal situation. That horrible press conference was a disaster.

I’m not gonna sue Lisa Bloom. I don’t think Lisa Bloom should be shot, like people want to shoot me. So there’s my fucking statement.”

Harvey Weinstein’s former favorite legal representative didn’t respond with a press conference, accusing Kathy of online slander. But she did tweet a response addressing Kathy’s video and Twitter accusations and sort of shrugged off Kathy’s negative customer complaint.

According to Lisa, Kathy’s press conference was a mess because of Kathy. Specifically, that Kathy went off-script. You can re-live it starting at the 10:05 mark.

Kathy Griffin recently revealed that, despite apologizing for her Trump stunt numerous times, she firmly believes Hollywood has blacklisted her.

Kathy probably doesn’t want to hear this, but she and Lisa might have that in common. A lot of people side-eyed Lisa, who has built a career from fighting for women, after she decided to join Harvey Weinstein’s creep defense team. She hasn’t been blacklisted yet, but who knows? In the event things get so bad she’s forced to resort to bus bench ads, maybe she can ask Kathy for some eye-catching slogans. “Future doomed? Get Bloomed!” has a nice ring to it.

Scarlett Johansson And Her Lawyer Are Getting Serious

"Rough Night" New York Premiere

Almost two weeks ago Scarlett Johansson, hot off a casual thing with Colin Jost, was papped holding hands in Manhattan with a mysterious guy later identified to be her lawyer (and brother of Pete) Kevin Yorn. Now a source is telling People that their relationship is of the serious kind, and that it’s been in the works for a bit.

According to the source, 32-year-old ScarJo and 51-year-old KevYo have been spending a lot of time together over the past few weeks and talk “all the time.” Apparently wanting to spend time together isn’t a new development for them.

“They’ve known each other for a very, very long time and genuinely liked each other outside of their working relationship. Romantically, things developed organically. There’s always been an attraction there. [He has] always been one of Scarlett’s strongest advocates [and she] personally leaned on him as a friend.”

Scarlett also likes Kevin because he’s got a daughter from a previous relationship and he’s gets along with her 2-year-old Rose Dorothy.

“Kevin’s always been really great with Scarlett’s daughter. He loves kids and she’s very family-oriented, so it goes without saying they are connected on that level.”

The source goes on to say that their relationship has been a bit off-and-on, but claims they’re “definitely on” right now.

But of course things are going well for them. I don’t know many dudes in their 50s, but I’m sure lots of them would want to get with someone born in the 80s. Not to mention that he’s on ScarJo’s payroll, which means he’ll always be on his best behavior. This makes me think she might want to lay a trap to make sure this is real. Kevin knows she’s a popcorn fan; ScarJo should test him by pretending her favorite part of the popcorn is the hard burnt kernels at the bottom of the bag. If he says “Oh, me too!” then she knows it’s time to move on. You can’t trust someone who will lie so blatantly to you.

ScarJo Was Seen Holding Hands With Her Lawyer

71st Annual Tony Awards

Scarlett Johansson was recently rumored to be in the middle of a casual date thing with SNLs Colin Jost. Well, ScarJo is single, and the prerogative of such is to mingle, and it looks like she’s found a new person to mingle with. Those of you who ordered them monogrammed his and hers ScarJost hand towels might want to check the return policy on your receipt. On the upside, I’m sure Leslie Jones will be quite pleased with this news. Leslie, quick – go get that tall glass of vanilla Carnation Instant Breakfast while ScarJo is distracted with another man!

ScarJo was papped in NYC with her lawyer Kevin Yorn last Friday night, and the placement of those hands tell me they weren’t hanging out with the intention to discuss legal stuff.

There has been no confirmation from”sources” saying they were on a date, so right now it’s all speculative. The only other hint we’ve got is from The Daily Mail. They say Kevin is a big shot entertainment lawyer with lots of A-list clients, like Ellen DeGeneres, Matthew McConaughey, and Liam Hemsworth. We’ll know for sure that ScarJo’s date wasn’t that serious if Kevin is seen holding hands with Matthew McConaughey. I doubt we’ll see that. But maybe that’s something Kevin Yorn might think about working into the lawyer experience? You’re paying lawyers enough, and it would be nice to get a little something extra out of it.

News: There are people who like Kylie Jenner enough to spend three bucks a month for an app to read her thoughts. Double news: they’re not her thoughts; they’re written by other people. Obviously. Triple news: she got mad about one of the things she didn’t write and flounced off her own app because it was too personal, when, like, no it wasn’t because you didn’t write it and it was standard Cosmo tips shit, and BASICALLY the true truth is probably just that Kylie was mad Kim was getting all the attention by returning to social media. (Celebitchy)

In other things Kylie didn’t approve news, her own calendar fucked up her own fucking birthday. Actual lol. (E!)

*I AM* NotTheOne kicks off her first Cannonball Read with a review of a book about a camp of troubled teens. In Rebekah Crane’s The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland, the characters are more quirky traits than personalities, but "the book was very well written and the story was engaging and easy to read." Though *I AM* NotTheOne is not the target audience for this book, she would recommend it to tweens and teens. Would you go back to your teen year if you could? (Cannonball Read 9)
