Andy Cohen Makes Jillian Michaels Relive Kathy Griffin Diss on ‘Watch What Happens Live’

Back in 2005, a relatively unknown trainer named Jillian Michaels from “The Biggest Loser“  approached Kathy Griffin at a Toys for Tots fundraiser. Their run-in became featured on an early episode of “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List,” and Griffin had some rather unkind words to say about Michaels at the time, claiming that she was essentially a clingy nobody from “The Surreal Life.” Ouch.

Jillian made her clubhouse debut on Wednesday night’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” and host Andy Cohen decided the best hazing ritual would be to show a clip of the now cringeworthy episode.

At the time, Michaels said, she didn’t realize that Griffin was filming a show, and she certainly had no idea about the comedian’s ill will toward her. In fact, when she saw the show she thought it was genius and called all of her friends to tune-in. Of course, they, and she, did, only to see Griffin “ripping me limb from limb,” Michaels joked. Take a look at Griffin’s diss above.
