Season 3 — Episode 6 Season 3, Episode 6

As I expected, Kathy's trip to the U.K. was a nonstop laugh fest. Didn't it seem like there were more scenes with Kathy narrating than usual? The more the merrier, I say. I love when Kathy gets tips from experts in the field of wherever she is heading, and this time she got advice from some of today's best British comedy whizzes. Could Ricky Gervais have looked any more uncomfortable? You could tell he wanted to play the politically correct card, especially when he freaked out that Kathy was dissing Oprah ("the most powerful woman in the world"). You knew Kathy was in the wrong place when Ricky mentioned how he wasn't a fan of media whores (as Kathy looked at the camera and pointed to herself). You've got to give Ricky credit for being a sport. Luckily, Kathy was able to make Ricky legitimately laugh a few times. Graham Norton seemed like he was having more fun with Kathy than Ricky. She certainly chose the right Pied Piper to walk through the gay-populated Old Compton: "Just being with Graham Norton created quite a gay-sation!" Kathy sure knows how to wheel them in. But I was surprised to see how small the venue at which the U.K. E! channel had her perform was, as was Kathy, calling it a "beautiful garage" and a basement. Kathy had an excellent point about how ironic it was that E! in the U.K. bought the rights to the first two seasons of her show (plus two of her stand-up specials), but E! "fired" her here in Hollywood, no doubt because of her history of Seacrest comments. That was one of the funniest moments: her demanding they remove his photo (he wears "more makeup than me and I'm a girl"). Other highlights: - Kathy's oh-so-true remarks about Madonna's ever-increasing British accent and her British-Madonna impersonation, comparing her to "f---ing Oliver Twist." Madge, I love ya. But you're from Michigan. - First The View earlier this week, now Kathy's show. Seems as though the best remedy to get Perez Hilton to write nice things about you is to invite him on your show. Kathy learned her lesson to never again forget to invite Perez to her annual holiday party - anything to avoid another "bitchy queen fight." - When Perez falsely accused Kathy of staging the fans at their lunch, Kathy's narration line was brilliant: "I'm semifamous. When are people going to get it?" - Luckily Mo Gaffney was able to convince Kathy that she'd have receptive audiences in London after having her on her radio show "Women Aloud." After the blow-by-blow from Mo, Kathy was able to sum up her British audience: "A bunch of heterosexual people with a British accent who have bad teeth" that "laugh like gay people." - Kathy's high tea with "U.K. funny lady" Julia Morris produced one of Kathy's best lines. After she saw the tray on the table filled with fancy things like cucumber sandwiches: "I'm not gonna take a crap for a week. There's no roughage here." - Kathy's "date" with Chucky Venice from Footballers' Wives contained two more of the very funniest lines. First, when she pretended to be drunk for the paparazzi and fell, but was comforted by the "good samaritan" woman that helped her up: "It almost screwed me out of the picture - her with her help!" Then, my favorite line was after she admitted to really being into Chucky: "If I didn't have my press junket tomorrow, I'd have a junket in his pants. And I'd answer every question." Followed by that look to the camera that I live for! - What a challenge it was for Kathy to avoid saying any of the long list of unacceptable words and phrases (most of which she had never heard of). - Another challenge was appearing on the U.K. show Loose Women, which Kathy first referred to as "Chicks Who Don't Get Me." All it took was a good Posh Spice dig and the women Kathy called "tougher than The View" ate her up. See you next week for the season finale.
