Kathy Griffin My Life on the D List

Celebrity Feud Update: Kathy Griffin Is Still Fighting With Elisabeth Hasselbeck (VIDEO)

Celebrity Feud Update: Kathy Griffin Is Still Fighting With Elisabeth HasselbeckKathy Griffin is known for speaking her mind. And she's never gotten along with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the conservative co-host of 'The View.' On her new stand-up special (Tue., 10PM ET on Bravo), the comedian discussed her longtime feud with Elisabeth. She also kept the fight going -- by dishing out a few choice insults.

Griffin called Hasselbeck a "moron," "idiot" and "crazy teabagger," plus a few things we can't print here. Their bitter feud dates back to this summer -- and a famously awkward TV appearance. For a long time, Kathy mocked Elisabeth in her comedy act. So when Kathy appeared on 'The View,' the host was peeved, calling Griffin's jokes "not true" and "unfunny."

But when Kathy asked what Hasselbeck was mad about in particular, the host drew a blank -- on live television.

'Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List' - 'Maggie: The Musical' (Season Finale) Recap

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 4th 2010 12:30AM
maggie_griffin_kathy_griffin_my_life_on_the_d-list_bravo(S06E08) Has it really been another season of 'Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List'? Where has the time gone? This season has had its share of stars, but it was less about the glitz and more about Kathy and her mother. Therefore, it was appropriate that this season finale was all about Maggie Griffin. The set up was a little corny, but the end result delivered emotionally.

So, after all the dick jokes and four-letter words, Maggie had had it with Kathy. That was the set up, complete with Maggie's video on Facebook -- or FacePlace as she calls it -- apologizing to her friends and neighbors for all of Kathy's outrageous antics. The straw that broke the camel's back was Kathy's dropping the f-bomb on TV with Anderson Cooper.

Kathy Griffin Given Gay-Rights Award, Protests in D.C.On 'My Life on the D-List' (Tue., 10PM ET on BRVO), it was all joking aside (eventually) for Kathy Griffin when she accepted an award at the Human Rights Campaign Dinner & Awards Gala.

Lance Bass introduced her as his "favorite straight," and Griffin said she should have slept with him when she had the chance.

But then she turned serious and asked the audience to join her in the Capitol to protest the military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy.

At the gathering in Washington D.C., Griffin called a soldier to join her onstage. After marching to the White House, he and another soldier handcuffed themselves in protest to the White House gate (and were consequently arrested). Griffin stayed behind to avoid hogging the spotlight.

Mariska Hargitay and Kathy Griffin Finally Get Their Lesbian Kiss (VIDEO)

Mariska Hargitay and Kathy Griffin Finally Get Their Lesbian KissWell, it's no Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson. But it's still two girls making out, and that's good enough.

Kathy Griffin appeared as a guest star on 'Law and Order: SVU,' where she and Mariska Hargitay were supposed to share a lesbian kiss. NBC promoted the kiss as a big deal, but then the network got complaints about potentially homophobic dialogue in the scene. As a result, NBC cut the kiss -- but weirdly kept the dialogue that offended many people. Huh? How does that make sense again?

But you can't keep a good same-sex kiss down, and so, on 'Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo), we finally get to see what all the fuss was about. The footage of Griffin's smooch with Hargitay is revealed. Then, Griffin shares her belief that the actress has a crush on her.

Why the Joan Rivers Roast should be tighter and funnier than her current facelift

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jul 28th 2009 4:30PM
Joan RiversThe traditional comedy roast has been hijacked by the cable networks and reproduced with more disappointing results than a sperm bank run by General Motors.

Comedy Central has done the best job for the most part while others like A&E's extremely mismanaged Gene Simmons Roast made for lower quality television are as horrific as those painfully dated Dean Martin's Roasts that are sold on infomercials in the wee small hours of the morning.

The secret to doing a good roast isn't really that much of a secret: hire people who are actually paid to be funny. That's why the Roast of Joan Rivers could be the best one yet.

Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List - Season Four Premiere

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 13th 2008 5:24PM
Kathy Griffin(S04E01) Kathy Griffin is back, or as I choose to call her now Emmy Girl. Yes, the Emmy is on full display. In your face, everyone, Kathy's got an Emmy! Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List won the Emmy last year and if this first episode is a sample of what season four has in store, that Emmy is going to get a companion. This show is riotous. And irreverent and a perfect blend of comedy and celebrity reality which is really unreality because how many of us interact with Anderson Cooper and Michael Moore?

Kathy Griffin has found the perfect genre for her particular brand of comedy. A sitcom wouldn't capture her true character, strict stand-up is not her best venue (although she's gotten very good at it), and a talk show would force her to chat with others and appear interested. The My Life on the D-List format works for her and she's found a way to incorporate stand up, situation comedy and guests into a reality hour that highlights her being funny. She has supporting players -- Team Griffin, Jessica, Tiffany, Tom and Kathy's adorable mom, Maggie -- as her comic foils and partners in crime.
