Kathy Griffin is still with her 18 years younger boyfriend after five years

Celebrities Dine Out At Craig's Restaurant

I honestly didn’t realize that comedienne Kathy Griffin was still a thing. Full disclosure, I’m not a fan, but I really hadn’t heard anything from her since Life on the D-List. Color me surprised that the girl has been busy. She was all over last month’s iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas, even scoring an interview with Sia. And, claiming she was inspired by Taylor Swift, she launched her own set of emojis. She told aol.com that fans could now pepper their texts with a little KG, letting us in on a few of the choice ones. “There’s one of me in my bangin’ bikini body. There are some of my mom with boxes of wine. I have some of my dogs. They’re their own characters. They are funny,” she asserted.

If that’s not enough, Kathy, whose latest book, Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins is set for release on November 22, recently bought a 13,000 square foot, 8-bedroom mansion in LA’s exclusive Bel-Air Crest community for a cool $10.5 million. If you happen to have a spare $5.495 million lying around, you can buy her Hollywood Hills house, which she put up for sale last month.

Kathy is sharing her new swanky digs with her boyfriend, 38-year-old marketing executive Randy Bick. Kathy is 55. You go, girl. She told People Magazine that she’s surprised that they’re still together, stating, “Well you know I didn’t think it would last [because] he’s 18 years younger than I am!” She went on to share (and joke) more about her love life with Randy:

On why she thought the relationship wouldn’t last, but does: “Because I thought he was just a man-whore, if you will. So yeah, we’ve been together five years now, and we have a great time, and he’s very sweet and very mellow. He’s like a regular guy, you know, he’s like a real guy. He’s not like a Hollywood guy.”

On her new big house being home to some kiddos: “It’s really probably a family house. But since I don’t have children and hopefully am barren and I don’t think my young boyfriend is gonna be expecting kids anytime soon – because I told him if I have two eggs left, he can have an omelet, but that’s all!”

On their TV viewing habits: “We will watch a marathon of anything from Orange Is The New Black and House of Cards … We’ll watch any housewife pretty much, from any city, so we try to mix it up. I have watched with him, because I love him, every single 30 for 30 that’s every been on ESPN ever and we watch a show called Hard Knocks which is on HBO which is about football. That’s love!”

I am not saying a word about this. I dated a guy 18 years younger than myself (I was 45, he was 27), so obviously, I have no problem with this relationship. Of course, my guy was a food delivery driver and aspiring stand up comedian and this guy seems like he has a legitimate job, but hey, there’s someone out there for everyone. They certainly lasted longer than I did with my younger guy. More power to them.

    Fair play to her.
    I want her new house. Damn.

  2. Senaber says:

    Corey, I think I love you.

  3. Agnes's Mom says:

    Kudos to Kathy. I can tolerate her much better than I can Amy Schumer or Chelsea Handler.

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah, me too. I’m not sure why – but I like her. She’s much less grating to me than the others you mentioned. Maybe because Kathy seems to genuinely be having fun when she’s doing her thing, rather than being so try-hard.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I have limited knowledge of her, but I really like her from the things I’ve seen. I listened to a Howard Stern interview with her and she talked about plasctic surgery and both her and Howard talked how they worry their younger “hotter” partners will leave them. It was very interesting.

    • aang says:

      My life on the D-list was great. I’ve always enjoyed her.

    • tealily says:

      I have holdover ’90s love for her, although I do find her grating.

  4. maria 2 says:

    I can’t look at american celebrities without being distracted by their crazy white teeth

  5. adastraperaspera says:

    Good for her! Kathy has worked as hard as anyone in the biz. I wish I could have her old house–it looked beautiful in Life on the D List. I bet Maggie has a big suite in this new one. With special wine box fridges!

  6. Ama says:

    “You go, girl” :-)
    I was dating a 10 year younger guy when a man in his 40ties had do share with me his wisdom: Those young guys have a “Mother-issue”. Was throwing the term “daddy-issue” right back at him for dating girls 15 years younger than him.

  7. Nancy says:

    I don’t have issues with Kathy. What caught my eye was the headline “……..her 18 years younger boyfriend……,” The man who wants to be our President is 24 years older than his wife. Just saying….

    • tback says:

      Men date younger all the time….!

      • Truthful says:

        @tback: now women do it too… 2016 baby!

      • LoveIsBlynd says:

        I’m dating 12yrs younger. Its’ nice. I’ve worked out hard my entire adult life and don’t drink or drug at all. He matches my sexual energy and he’s sweet and adoring. He just discovered The Cure. So some things are amusing but mostly its sweet, and he doesn’t sponge off me in the slightest and is n’t “that way”; he has his own home business etc

    • sunny says:

      So? It is mentioned every time a person of either sex dates/marries a person that is much older or younger than they are. What does Trump have to do with anything?

      • LoveIsBlynd says:

        @Suny, the post is about age differences and if it’s sexist to think of this as negative if the woman is the december to a may. Trump is 24yrs older than his wife and there has never once been a mention; this speaks to a possible double standard.

  8. Christianna says:

    They look the same age. Doesn’t look 55 to me.

  9. Alix says:

    Eight bedrooms!! How big is her family?

  10. Jayna says:

    Kathy’s last husband was a normal guy who worked in IT and was supportive of her standup career, traveling with her. He seemed like a laid-back, normal guy. Then she caught him stealing money from her. It was over.

    • tealily says:

      Is that the story? How sad!

    • CharlotteCharlotte says:

      Yep, he was awful. I’ve followed Kathy for years and was a fan when that was happening. Felt so sad for her.
      I’m glad these two are still making it work. Remember when they were first together, she was worried about him being at her family’s Thanksgiving dinner, because he would be watching her family eat for the first time. He was shocked at how much food there was, and how they hoard their plates like starving dogs. He stuck around after that, so she knew he was probably long-term. And her telling that story is a crack up.

  11. OTHER RENEE says:

    I’ve always been a fan of hers. Love her comedic style. As for the bf they seem happy happy so no big deal as long as he doesn’t want kids.

  12. anniefannie says:

    Ive always had a soft spot for Kathy, she has a hustle that’s unmatched, but how in holy hell can she surround herself w/ so many gays and still sport that hair/wig?

  13. Brittney B. says:

    Yeah, they look like they’re at least in the same decade. Between her plastic surgery and his hairstyle, I guess they met in the middle.

  14. Beckysuz says:

    I really love Kathy. I think she’s hilarious. And she does a lot to support the LBGT community. Plus her mom Maggie is the best

  15. Patti says:

    My husband is 15 years younger than me. We’ve been together almost 5 years. I’m 55 and he’s 40. So far so good. Go Kathy!

  16. Suzanne says:

    I’ve always loved Kathy…and yeah, I can hardly what Schumer but Chelsey sometimes annoys me too. Kathy looks THE BEST she’s ever looked in these photo’s…Wow…she has a good plastic surgeon…she doesn’t look fake or stretched skin tight. Good for her. The boyfriend fits with her… I hope they are very happy.

  17. sills says:

    She actually had a bit about a May-December romance where the woman was older, in one of her old stand-ups. Life imitates art, I guess. More power to her, she seems really happy and relaxed (and also like she’s invested her money wisely).

  18. BDA says:

    I like her. I’ve always liked her. We were waiting on the security line at JFK and she and Randy came by, she was joking with my 5 year old twins and then she knocked down the tape barrier thing by mistake and made a joke, apologized, and picked it up and fixed it. It was funny and she wasn’t above fixing the tape herself. Oh, and she looked great in person.

  19. kibbles says:

    It can work but my concern has always been whether the younger guy eventually bolts when the older woman no longer looks young and attractive or when he is ready to have a family. I suppose if the woman is still young enough to have children, that’s less of an issue if the guy is ready to be a young dad. If neither want children with each other I don’t think the age difference is that big of an issue. Men do it all the time and are rarely judged for it if the age difference is fewer than 15 years apart.

  20. Veronica says:

    I’ve always admired her hustle. While not always a fan of her humor, she’s never had a problem working for it, that’s for sure.

    Eighteen years is a lot, but it’s not as big an issue when you’re both past your thirties. At least at that point, you know who you are.

  21. sunny says:

    She terrifies me and has an awful and grating persona. Money certainly can buy a lot though. I’d never date a younger man, I am not attracted to them in the slightest and never have been. My husband is a lot older than I am so I’m not judging, just personal preference. I want to be taken care of, and a lot of times it seems like the woman has to be like a mother to the younger guy. Although my serious looking businessman husband wants nothing more than to retire and do hood rat stuff with me all day long so maybe they never grow up lol.

  22. MrsBPitt says:

    I’ve always found Kathy sooooooooooo annoying! But, she must appeal to some people, if she can afford a ten million dollar home!

  23. Maleficent says:

    She works hard and tours pretty much nonstop. Considering that her ex-husband was a jerk, I’m happy for her.

  24. Lola Lola says:

    Her body is so damn awesome no wonder such a young guy wants her. Dang. And how can you not know Kathy is “still a thing”!?! Her specials are fabulous!

  25. Charlie says:

    Always loved Kathy. She has lost a bit of her edge, to become more mainstream. She doesn’t want to offend some of those big name stars she’s rubbing shoulders with now. But she’s worked so hard and deserves her success!
