Kathy GriffinComedian Kathy Griffin's chartered plane was 20 minutes out of Burbank Airport on Wednesday when the cabin filled with smoke. In a statement on Kathy's official website, rumors of a crash were quashed.

Shortly after takeoff in unusually cold weather for California, the plane encountered extreme turbulance, sparking engine trouble for the funnywoman. The plane was en route to Stockton, CA, where Kathy was set to perform that night.

How much you want to bet this winds up in her act, and she says something like, "Ohmy god, thank God for the pilots, I wanted to like, blow all three of them in a trashy Paris Hilton kinda way!"

Thank my sweet Madonna and Lourdes that Kathy Griffin was OKAY. Even if they'd crashed, I'm sure her Botox would have saved her face.

A little bit of Kathy goes a long way. I know I cannot sit through more than 1/2 hour of her comedy, but, I will be interested to see how she fits this into her act.

HIlarious. Kathy, until you can afford to hire a real private jet company you better fly commercial! You aren't JLo Kathy! Probably sipping champagne like she's all that, oooo look everyone and this happens? As Kathy says, this story is "like a hug from god."

i heard the plane went down and they were all killed . As they got to the pearly gates St. Peter stopped them and gave them a choice . He said " either you can enter heaven or return to Earth as if nothing happened " someone asked " Whats' the Catch ? " St. Peter replied " The only entertainment we have in Heaven is the comedy of Kathy Griffin " Needless to say all passengers are safe and sound . Dickhead .

I don't know much about Kathy Griffin, having only seen her on some talk show. If one has such animosity for her, they don;t have to watch her show. Where is all the venom coming from? Looks like some people definitely need something constructive to do. Start with getting a life.
