One, two, three, four: Kathy Griffin and Ryan Seacrest declare a lip liner war!

The comedian and our E! Red Carpet host got into a playful battle on the 2012 Primetime Emmys red carpet Sunday night after Kathy asked Ryan to touch up her makeup for her.

"Make my lips more plumpy," the nominated actress requested, before Ryan decided to draw all over her face with lip liner. Don't worry, Kathy got her revenge as she drew a mustache on him, saying, "You are evil! Evil!"

Before their hilarious lip liner war, the duo dished on their time spent together over the weekend at the iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas. Ryan reveals that Kathy was the first person Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, who checked into rehab, talked to after his onstage meltdown.

"He said, 'You are the perfect person for me to see at a moment like this,'" Kathy explains. "And we hugged. I teased him and I said, 'You're a father now, for God's sake.' He laughed and said, 'I know.' And I said, 'You can't even break the guitar as quickly as you used to!' He was just laughing and sweating and hugging and rocking. I really actually felt like it was him being sort of punk rock, so whatever he's going to rehab for, I wish him the best. I like him."
