Kathy Griffin models some sexy lingerie for VH1

Kathy Griffin took to Twitter yesterday and shared a couple pictures from a VH1 photo shoot to promote VH1 Divas Salute The Troops hosted by Kathy and airing Sunday, December 5 At 9:00 PM ET/PT.

Kathy appears to be paying tribute to Cher in the photos which feature Kathy showing off her petite, surgery-assisted frame in one of Cher’s infamously revealing black lingerie stage costume.

I’m no proponent of plastic surgery or women that are extremely thin, but I have to concede that Kathy Griffin has got quite the sexy little hot bod! Too bad it’s not enough to support her big mouth. Zing!
