What comedienne who is on the comeback trail as of late was overheard at a pre Oscars party saying that she was approached to host this years Oscars ceremony?
She turned them down saying that a dying relative is her top priority at the moment.
She then said if they ask her to host next year, she’ll definitely consider it.
Kathy Griffin’s mom, Maggie, suffering from dementia
(CNN)Kathy Griffin’s mom, Maggie Griffin, who became something of a fan favorite through her daughter’s Bravo reality show, “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List,” is suffering from dementia, the comedian said Thursday in an emotional Instagram post.
Griffin said she felt the need to be honest about her mother’s condition with her followers because many have asked why she hadn’t shared video or photos of her recently.
“I’ve always been honest with you all, but this one is really hard,” she wrote. “The pic below, taken in September, was the last time I was able to have a proper/coherent conversation with her.”
Griffin’s mother, who is 98, has in the past frequently been a guest of her daughter’s at events and various appearances.
Griffin says her mother’s mind, once “so naturally quick, funny, and smart” isn’t now.
“Watching that slip away so fast has been devastating,” she wrote. “In terms of how she is now, at this point she only knows my name and I love you.”
