If there’s one joke you shouldn’t expect to hear from Kathy Griffin from now on, it’s the one about her getting new plastic surgery. The funnywoman says she’s done with it.

“[Plastic surgery] didn’t help me one bit,” she says in the latest issue of Fitness. “It didn’t get me happier or didn’t make me look particularly younger, it didn’t help me get jobs.

“What I realize now is … no one expected me to come out in a bikini anyway.”

The 47-year-old star of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List says she’s learned to distinguish between a hot body in Hollywood and a hot body everywhere else, and to live with the normal fluctuations in her weight.

“I like my body more now than I did two decades ago,” she says.
