Kathy Griffin Says 'My Life on the D-List' is Over, Kevin Eubanks Will Return to 'The Tonight Show' and More

Kathy GriffinYou better put your box of wine down before you read this: Kathy Griffin told Entertainment Weekly that her hit reality show, 'My Life on the D-List,' is over.

The Emmy-winner told EW that she's unsure of the show's future and format. "I don't think it will come back, especially not as the same show it was," Griffin said. "I would love to do a hybrid show, like a half-scripted kind of thing or something based on what I built on 'My Life on the D-List' and what I experience, but not a full-on reality show."

Griffin said a scripted series would be a natural progression for her brand and humor.

The past few seasons of 'D-List' have focused on the diva's misadventures with celebrities, with the situations seeming less organic and more staged. Bravo has yet to make a decision on the future of the series.

I love Kathy but the reality is she is NO "D" lister anymore. Having seen her live 6 times this year each show "SOLD OUT" and working in "A" list venues...the "D" list gag is old...Time for her life on "A" List and count me in!

Does she really think anyone believes her show was "reality?" It was totally fake & scripted. I watched it 3 or 4 times and it was clearly planned out ahead of time. There was nothing spontaneous at all.

There is a GOD after all. It has to be a miracle that this reality show is going off the air. Now, if only something could be done about all the rest.
