Lampanelli -- Westboro Protest = $44,000 for Charity

Lisa Lampanelli counted 44 protestors from the Westboro Baptist Church at her show last night -- so, as promised, she's donating $44,000 to a gay rights charity in their name.

After the show, she tweeted, "Thanks to these a-holes, $44,000 will be donated to the GMHC!!!"
