Kathy Griffin stopped by On Air with Ryan Seacrest to poke fun at Ryan and talk about lending her hand to the Trevor Project for their upcoming fundraiser this Sunday, TrevorLIVE.
The funny woman brought along her much-younger boyfriend Randy, and joked about their age difference, amongst other things. “The age difference between us is significant … I’m 53 and he’s 35,” she laughed. After making fun of Ryan a bit more (listen to audio below for all her jokes at his expense), and uninviting him to their annual New Year’s Eve dinner with Anderson Cooper, Kathy got down to business and revealed she’s actually quite charitable.
Kathy, who was just inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most-televised stand-up comedy specials, is set to host TrevorLIVE, a fundraiser that brings together top entertainers and corporate leaders to support Trevor’s life-saving, life-affirming work for LGBTQ youth in crisis and this year, to honor actress Jane Lynch with the “Trevor Hero Award.”
“The Trevor Project is a great organization and we’re dealing with suicidal teens primarily from the LGBT community and it’s a hotline they’ve had forever and they have a website TrevorProject.org … but what’s exciting is they’ve also added texting … let’s say you’re being bullied and you’re maybe not in the situation where you have the privacy to make a call, you can send a text or email and get help that way,” Kathy explains.
The actress goes on to elaborate that she’s excited to be able to honor her good friend Jane Lynch because “the Glee kids will be there. Darren Criss is going to sing and Amber Riley and Cheyenne Jackson and I got my friend Sia to sing ‘Titanium.’”
Kathy will also be humoring the crowd. ”I don’t roast. I mean look, some time you get to people through comedy, but the event itself is more about celebrating the success of the organization. And trust me, they’ll have the film clip that’s going to have everybody in tears … but you know Jane is hysterically funny and so I get to do a little monologue up top, so we will infuse some humor, but the message is serious,” she tells us.
Catch Kathy’s grand entrance during the live pre-show, airing online Sunday night from 8-10 p.m. ET at TheTrevorProject.org/TrevorLIVE. For ticket information, head to http://www.thetrevorproject.org/trevorlivela.

Roselyn Sanchez is quite the double threat.
The actress, who stars in Lifetime’s Devious Maids, has released a new single called “Pick Up Your Game.”
And given the suggestive title, we could only wonder, does she really think guys need to up their game?
“It depends on the guy,” Roselyn shares with On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “I think 50/50. You have the ones who are very confident and have a sense of humor and are sexy because of who they are and then you have the ones that have to pick it up for sure.”
We’re not going to lie, we agree.
And for all those Devious Maids fans out there, Roselyn adds she’s incredibly excited about the upcoming second season.
Although she admits she doesn’t know much yet, she guarantees we can expect lots of twists and craziness.

Lady Gaga is getting ready to bring her ARTPOP to life!
On Tuesday, the “Applause” superstar announced artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball, which kicks off it’s 25-date North American leg on May 4 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The tour includes a number of cities Lady Gaga has yet to perform at as well as cities that missed her tour earlier this year following a hip injury which forced her to cancel.
Mother Monster is also set to perform the final seven shows at historic NYC’s Roseland Ballroom, marking the final shows at the venue before it closes down forever. The move also sets the record for the most consecutive shows by any artist at the Roseland.
Gaga revealed to Ryan during her iHeartRadio Album Release Party in New York City she hopes fans gain a lot from her tour.
“I hope it will ignite their passion, ignite their creativity, their inspiration,” Gaga shares. “Because I love collaborating with great artists and I love watching that glowing smile appear on [fans'] faces when I feel that I’ve shown them something maybe they’ve never seen before.”
Tickets for artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball will go on sale beginning Monday, Dec. 9, 2013. However, LittleMonsters.com members will have first access to tickets beginning Tuesday, December 3rd at 2:00 p.m. Members who RSVP to the event listings for the show(s) they wish to attend within LittleMonsters.com will be provided a unique code and may order online through Thursday, December 5th at 5:00 p.m.
