Kathy Griffin cheers up injured pal Kristin Chenoweth

The Glee star was hospitalised last month (Jul12) when she was hit by a falling piece of lighting equipment on the set of U.S. TV drama The Good Wife, prompting her to eventually pull out of the show.

Chenoweth, who has been wearing a neck brace to aid her recovery, began undergoing physical therapy last week (begs13Aug12) and Griffin decided to give the 44 year old reason to smile by keeping her company and lifting her spirits during a low-key girls’ night on Tuesday.

The stars posted several photos of their get-together on Twitter.com, and in the snaps, Griffin can be seen bowing her head to pray for Chenoweth’s recovery, as well as trying to “nurse her back to health” with a bottle of wine.

The two also strike a series of wacky poses and poke fun at Chenoweth’s black eye, with the singer/actress acting as if she had just received a bruiser from Griffin. The pint-sized blonde jokingly tweeted, “She beat me up. @kathygriffin”.

The Broadway rivals then pretended to fight over Chenoweth’s Tony Award, which she won for her stage turn in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
