We're not sure about how we feel about the recent trend of older celebs showing off their bikini bods. It kinda makes us feel as dirty as the "I lost the baby weight in 3 days and now I'm in a thong" celebrity meme. On the one hand, of course we celebrate their hard work and the fact that they still look great in a skimpy bathing suit. On the other hand, isn't it just like wearing shorts?
At some point, don't you just have accept that bikinis are the suit of choice for a younger woman? Unless you are on the Italian Riviera. Bangin' body or not (emphasis on the NOT), bikinis are appropriate for all ages when you are sitting in your cabana on the beach in Positano chain smoking and rubbing Bain de Soleil all over your body in an attempt to get even more tan and leathery. We know, we've seen it.
Maybe what makes us most uncomfortable is that fact that Kathy Griffin is one of our most favorite comediennes. We've been at her late night shows in San Francisco with all her gays (trust us, the Castro was empty that night), and she's always dressed in a full-coverage ABO (All-Black Outfit) with her gothy, clumpy black shoes.
Actually, this bikini photo shoot smacks of her gays egging her on, especially with the white couch and accessories. After all, we all know (and Alan Cumming has recently confirmed) that the gays like a celebrity who over struggles to over come fierce odds in order to succeed. So I guess in that case we say, "Touché, Kathy! Well played. Well played, indeed."
