Emmy Nom for Kathy as D-List Wraps Season

I’ll admit I got a little misty this week as My Life on the D-List came to a close, especially with the touching tribute Kathy made to her father while she was traveling in Ireland.

Although the end of the ep was sad and serious, the 40-some minutes leading up to it were hilarious as usual.

Kathy Reaches Out, Touches Gays in U.K.

This week on My Life on the D-List, Kathy Griffin traveled across the pond to reach her newest fan base, U.K. gays, but not before she and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton had a chat.

“I know how to get to the blue-haired gay bloggers,” Kathy said after she gave Hilton a gift basket she received for hosting the gay porn awards.

HSN, Ron Jeremy and Roommates on D-List

This week, Kathy Griffin pulled out all the stops in order to impress the “HSN mucky-mucks” and start her own empire, even going so far as to enlist the help of her assistant’s assistant’s grandmother to call in while she was on the air.

Sad Day for D-List, Griffin

KG and parentsSomewhere in between corporate gigs and celebrity jokes, Kathy Griffin had to deal with the death of her dad, John, in a very public way.

The saying “the show must go on” certainly applied this past week, when Griffin lost her father while she was in flight to Miami for Rosie O’Donnell’s cruise gig. At 90 years old, John suffered congestive heart failure and died before he could get another heart bypass.

Kathy Griffin Does Santa Rosa

Kathy Griffin’s latest standup hour on Bravo channel is “Everbody Can Suck It,” which was filmed at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa, Calif., a repeat of which airs tonight at 8/7c.

You’ve got to love Kathy Griffin. Who else would think she’s being punk’d when she’s invited to a party at Drew Barrymore’s house? And then takes Lance Bass and Reichen Lehmkuhl (of “The Amazing Race” fame) as her gay support posse? And proceeds to get dissed by Lindsay Lohan. Twice.

Who doesn’t love some who can say, “I was raised right. I talk about people behind their backs. It’s called manners,” with a straight face?

Griffin’s latest hour includes a complaint about going to Hollywood’s Club Hyde (on a Tuesday night at 9 p.m.) and buying four drinks (one of them a soda) and having to pay $84. So she says to the bartender, “What’s in the ice—spun gold?” Then she goes back to Club Hyde again, with Bass in tow, and gets politely removed from the Olson twins’ private table.

Griffin says she misses “Being Bobby Brown,” but thinks that there’s not much chance of getting “the diva” Whitney Houston back, not when Courtney Love was at her intervention.

She admits she hates kids because “children are selfish” and that she’s a “fallen Catholic.” She also outs her mom for saying, in regards to Catholic priests, “Oh Kathleen, some of those priests hardly even touched those kids.” And she goes on to say that no one swears or uses the Lord’s name in vain more than Catholics.

At the Emmys, as a joke, when her show, “My Life on the B-List,” didn’t win in its category, Griffin flipped off the entire auditorium and stormed out. Her lawyer called the next morning to ask, “Did you flip off the winners of Extreme Home Makeover and tell everybody to suck your dick?” And when she said yes, he said, “O.K. I gotta make some calls.”

She was also invited on the Today Show–the same day Ann Coulter was on saying stuff about 9/11 widows–and dubbed Coulter “the naughty poster girl of those old conservative dudes.”

Then, when Matt Lauer came around and she was gaga, Griffin got nervous and, as she admits, her mouth got inappropriate and asked him if he was sleeping with Ann. When Lauer was taken aback by the question, she asked it again. And Lauer, being quick on his feet, finally answered, “Not after today.”

From her personal life, to politics, Griffin spares no one in her monologues. And that’s what makes her one of the best in the business, D-list and all.

Griffin’s D-List Back, Better Than Ever

Kathy Griffin

From a ride along with a Redken rep, to playing Carnegie Hall in NYC, Kathy Griffin and her show, “My Life on the D-List,” are back on Bravo on Tuesdays at 10/9 c.
Not one to make light of serious circumstances, Griffin teared up when talking about her divorce and the loss of the man she thought was her soul mate.

But after that, it was business as usual, which included lovingly berating her staff and trying to shock anyone within earshot.

The great thing about Griffin is that often, she says the things you wish you could say (if you had the guts).

And don’t even get me started on her parents (apparently her father passed after the season wrapped?), who, in the first ep, went to a gay nightclub for happy hour.

In NYC, after being a guest on the radio show “Wake Up With Whoopi,” Griffin and Whoopi (Goldberg) discussed measuring their vaginas (it was funnier than it now may sound), and the unshockable gays and the unshockable straight people who will be attending Griffin’s Garnegie Hall gig.

I saw Griffin at a show in my neck of the woods, and I can tell you it was worth every penny—even though the seat I was assigned was broken and I ended up sitting in the aisle on a step the whole 1.5-plus hours. Worth. Every. Penny.

Griffin also went on “The View,” which revealed that her new assistant/roommate, Tom, has a huge crush on Kellie Pickler.

Griffin, who is outspoken in her contempt for Star Jones, seemed to have a great time with the girls, particularly Rosie O’Donnell (the show was taped back in January, before Rosie’s much-talked-about recent departure—and who can blame her? If I had been her, I would be in jail right now for assault on the uptight, closed-minded, extremely conservative Elisabeth, who had the world fooled that she was a sweetheart when she was on Survivor years ago, but who apparently was just looking for a way into Hollywood so she could spread Republican propaganda at will.)

During the show, Griffin addressed “the wind-tunnel effect,” or the trend of young Hollywood females to flash their crotches everywhere they go.

As for Griffin’s new requirements for a man, she says she prefers a man who’s been married but is now “estranged and not speaking” to his ex.

On Carnegie Hall day, Griffin went early and stood outside next to her lone poster, while people walked by and one said, “That’s what’s her name…on the B-List.”

At the end of the show, Griffin was in bed, wearing a t-shirt that said, “Ask me about my debut at Garnegie Hall.” If I see you, Griffin, I will!
