Perhaps inspired by Tyra Banks’ televised colonic, Kathy Griffin will display her lady parts to the world by way of a televised pap smear. The comedian is saying “Suck it to Cancer,” according to her press release, and wants to show women “how easy it is to get this done.” Despite the seriousness of the matter, the release makes sure to note “she has bedazzled her ‘va-jay-jay,’ so it can be as ‘va-beautiful’ as it ‘va-can.’”

Adding even more levity to the situation, Griffin will be poolside at a California hotel as the procedure is taped, this Friday at noon, for her reality show, the Huffington Post reports.
