Kathy Griffin: Natalie Morales Had Me “Banned” From Today Show

The comedienne, whose new Bravo talk show “Kathy” premieres on April 19, tells USA Today, “I just found out, I’m very excited, I’m re-banned from the ‘Today’ show.”
Griffin says, “I just want you to know, over the years since ‘Suddenly Susan’ in 1996, I have been banned and re-banned from the ‘Today’ show by several people.”
“Katie Couric at one point. Matt Lauer at one point. This time my camp heard that it was actually Natalie Morales — who is on the show, I don’t even know if she’s the co-host, I think she reads the news.”
So, what beef does Morales supposedly have with the fiery redhead?
Griffin tells the paper, “What I heard from their team is that I was rude to her at the Golden Globes. Which is funny because I didn’t go to the Golden Globes. But I did go to Golden Globes parties which I didn’t really belong at, so I know for a fact that I did a few interviews there, but I really knew that it wasn’t my place to even be there.”
Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for the “Today” show regarding Griffin’s claims, and will update shortly.
