Comic Kathy Griffin got sent back down to the minors for joking about a 10-year-old actress going into rehab. And Isaac Mizrahi, the gay fashion designer, was unrepentant after committing what sure looked to me like misdemeanor battery on live TV at the Golden Globes, squeezing one actress' breasts and asking another about her nether hair.
