Kathy Griffin’s voice is still a little hoarse following her battle with lung cancer.
The comedian (61) appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”Tuesday night was her candid moment about the challenges she faced after being diagnosed with cancer.
She noted how her voice may never change back to its original pitch after her sickness, but she’s working through it.
“So last time I was here — just really quickly — I had lung cancer, they took out half my left lung, and so my voice got some damage,”Griffin said. “I am fine, it doesn’t hurt, and the important thing is my boobs are still fabulous.”
This was the comedian’s statement: “I think it’ll get back to normal but I’m not sure. I’m still working on it.”
Kimmel, 54, joked then that Griffin could actually sound more fun if his voice was changed.
“I am funnier, because I think I sound non-threatening and demure. That’s my new angle,”Sie retorted.
“Thank God you’re a comedian and not a police officer,”The late host of the show pointed this out.
“Can you imagine [if I was a cop]? ‘Stop! Cut it out, you guys! Be nicer!’ ”Griffin asked.
It “My Life on the D-List”In August 2021, the star revealed to her fans that she had been diagnosed with lung carcinoma. She underwent surgery days after to remove part of her lung.
The former “Fashion Police” co-host revealed she previously suffered from a pill addiction and told her fans how she hopes to get through her deal without the use of drugs.
“To be honest, this cancer surgery was a little more than I had anticipated. Tonight will be my first night without any narcotic painkillers. Hello Tylenol, my new best friend!”She wrote the following on Instagram. “The last time I was in a hospital was in June 2020 when I tried to take my own life and overdosed on prescription pills.”
Elle continued: “With over a year clean and drug-free, I now know I can do this and anything I want without those devil pills. Y’know what? I fear drugs and addiction more than I fear cancer. So, I think I’ll be ok.”
Griffin later stopped by Kimmel’s talk show in November 2021 where she divulged that she was cancer-free.
“I’m cancer-free,”Griffin made the statement at the time. “I don’t know why, I had a tumor, right? And I’ve never smoked, and it was in there for 10 years. So get this, they took it out and found it in another scan.”
She also spoke out about her voice: “It will heal, but I’m sort of enjoying it. I’m a good two octaves higher, I think … it’s higher than Mariah Carey.”
