Kathy Griffin’s assistant Tiffany Rinehart has been posting messages on Griffin’s Facebook today about the comedian’s impending surgery for a uterine polyp. Of course the comedian didn’t miss a minute to use surgery — which Tiffany assures will be minor and outpatient — to plug her forthcoming Bravo talk show and bring the melodrama: “I’m probably going to pass away… my chances of making it are very, very slim,” she deadpanned. See Griffin’s hysterical video (wordplay!), entitled “Kathy discusses her vagina surgery,” below.

It’s not the first time Griffin has opened up (quite literally) to her “Katheters” on the topic of women’s health. She had a public pap smear in 2010 — which you can see below!

You’re welcome.
