Former Chelsea Lately star Heather McDonald has vowed to stay more tight-lipped during interviews, following backlash over her comments regarding Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner. But the comedienne opened up to me on the red carpet…
Heather recently defended friend & Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch Kris in an interview, calling Caitlyn “a stick in the mud” and encouraging people to sympathize with the former athlete’s ex-wife. McDonald was widely criticized and brutally slammed on social media for the comments.
So when I caught up with her at a book release party for The Real Housewives of Miami‘s Lea Black, Heather was reluctant to talk at first. But after a little coaxing, the mother of two went on quite a rant.
Using the fall of E!’s Fashion Police as an example and reminiscing Joan Rivers, Heather denounced the new trend of only positive commentary being socially acceptable. I asked if she blames Kathy Griffin, who cited the snarky nature of Fashion Police as reason for leaving her short-lived stint on the show.
