Group-photo flap at fundraiser prompts reality TV personality to drop a C-bomb on ‘Parks and Recreation’ star
"Real Housewives of New Jersey" personality Kim Granatell lashed out at Amy Poehler on Twitter Friday, calling her a word rhyming with "runt" after an unpleasant run-in at a charity event.
The two clashed Thursday night at a fundraiser for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation in New York City, according to CelebrityMagnet.com's Tom Murro, who attended the event with Granatell. (If this is all a phony feud to increase awareness for the group, we heartily approve.)
Poehler has a little history with New Jersey reality stars, having mocked them in her "Jersey Floor" routine with Tina Fey on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."
Murro said the "Parks and Recreation" star refused to share the frame with him and Granatell, despite the efforts of organizers to put them in a photo together. Eventually, Murro said, Poehler told him and Granatell to get out of a shot, before making a hasty exit from the soiree.
Granatell offered a crude assessment of Poehler's behavior on her Twitter account on Friday morning, referring first to an event at the U.S.S. Intrepid.
"Great time at the Intrepid with Tom," she wrote. "The Orphan Event after with Amy Pohler [sic] was not so desireable [sic] like her.. A.c u next Tuesday….."
Poehler's representative did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment. Neither did the WWO, which was busy helping orphans or something.
