Kathy Griffin Reveals the Reason for Her Tears on 'Law & Order: SVU' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Feb 17th 2010 8:08PM
Kathy Griffin was on 'The Wendy Williams Show' plugging her upcoming guest shot as a lesbian activist on 'Law & Order: SVU' (Guess who she has the hots for). After watching a clip from the episode, Williams asked Griffin about her dewy look at the end of the scene

"The tears looked real; your nose was red," Williams said.

Griffin explained her stab at method acting. "I was never so scared in my life having that gig cause I haven't had an acting job in a long time and that's a serious show. I had diarrhea for two weeks solid ... I lost 10 pounds on that show ... and if I was crying it was probably because I just went to the bathroom."

Kathy Griffin Explains Why She's D-List (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 16th 2010 5:00PM
Exemplifying why she is, in fact, a D-list star, Kathy Griffin appeared on 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 7AM ET on Fox) today and ate huge, heaping forkfuls of free food while on camera, plugged her stand-up act and a book signing, and complained that 'Good Day' restricted the video crew from her show 'My Life on the D-List.'

Still, Griffin was quick to point out that higher-caliber stars aren't exactly clamoring for face time on the Fox morning show. "I'm all you've got, baby," she said.

If 'Idol' Producers Get Their Way, Howard Stern Could Replace Cowell

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 5th 2010 11:02AM
howard_stern_siriusThe question of who will replace Simon Cowell as an 'American Idol' judge began in earnest today with Page Six claiming that Howard Stern is the 'Idol' producers' top choice to take Simon Cowell's throne. Stunt casting? Attention-grabbing? Total bull? You can take your pick because this smacks of a PR turn if ever there was one.

For a moment, though, let's consider the possibility. Howard's contract with Sirius XM Radio wraps next January. That contract was in the $100 million neighborhood. Could 'American Idol' fork over a pay-out equal to that? Umm, yes. They make enough. Will they? Hard to imagine. The figure mentioned in the report was $50 million a year, which is what Simon will earn this season, but that's based on the fact that Simon has a track record with 'Idol.'

Kathy Griffin's She'll Cut A Bitch on DVD

by Nick Zaino, posted Jan 11th 2010 7:54PM
Kathy Griffin She'll Cut A BitchThe best thing about making fun of the daily failings of celebrities and other public figures, as is Kathy Griffin's bread and butter, is that you can write a new act every few weeks. Griffin's Bravo special, She'll Cut A Bitch, originally aired in April of 2009, and comes out uncensored with a few extra routines (about 12 minutes total) on DVD January 12.

She also released a CD last November, called Suckin' It For the Holidays, which had almost nothing to do with the holidays. There was very little overlap between the special and CD. Griffin has released a steady stream of specials for the past several years, in addition to shooting her reality show, My Life on the D-List.

Bethenny Frankel Gets Her Own Show

by Chris Jordan, posted Jan 11th 2010 11:45AM
Bethenny Frankel appears to have it all: fame, fortune, Skinnygirl Margaritas -- everything, that is, except for her own reality series.

Until now.

Frankel, one of the breakout stars of Bravo's 'Real Housewives of New York,' is set to star in her own series called 'Bethenny's Getting Married?', which will presumably follow Frankel's engagement to Jason Hoppy, according to E! (yes, the question mark is intentional).

Best TV of the '00s: Reality Series

More of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about a major category that came of age in the aughts: Reality shows.

While I would never call myself a reality TV junkie, it really bugs me when people make blanket statements like, "I hate reality TV," or, "Reality TV is the bane of my existence." The genre has grown so much in the past decade that it has become just like scripted television, in that there's good and there's bad. Even though we're splitting this up into two lists, "Reality," and "Trashy Reality," you won't see a single show that starts with, "Who Wants to Marry" on either list.

This list is dedicated not to the guilty pleasures, but to the shows that you wouldn't be embarrassed for your neighbors to know you watch: the classy reality, if you will. So without further ado, here is TV Squad's list of the best reality shows of the decade.

Reality TV has hired Donald Trump -- again.

Variety reports that The Donald has just inked a deal with the Golf Channel for a new unscripted reality show titled 'Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf' (yep).

Already on board to play a few holes are NFL legends Jerry Rice and Lawrence Taylor, with more athletes, musicians, actors and business-types reportedly to come.

The series will debut on April 26, 2010, with an initial order of six half-hour episodes.

What Allison is thankful for

Thanksgiving is coming and for many of us it's time to eat, drink and watch football. It's also a time to reflect on the things you're grateful for and since TV Squad is all about television, here's what I'm grateful for this holiday season, with regard to the tube.

Mad Men season finale
There was really nothing as satisfying in the entire year for me. Matt Weiner promised a game-changing episode and he delivered it with a whopper of a wrap up. Actually, nothing was really wrapped; it was more like the cards have been dealt and we're still waiting to see how the hands are played.

Kathy Griffin lands guest spot on Law and Order SVU

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 17th 2009 8:09AM
kathy_griffin_close-upThere's another Bravo to NBC crossover afoot. First, The Real Housewives of New Jersey popped over to play themselves on Mercy. Now it turns out that Kathy Griffin is on her way to Law and Order: SVU. And, get this, she's not playing herself. The queen of the D-list will be acting.

Kathy has been tapped to play a lesbian activist in the February 10 episode. As anyone who's watched Kathy on her Emmy-award winning reality show, My Life on the D-List, Kathy is a shameless over-achiever and loves to work. She's ambitious and determined to get off the D-list. As she might say, she would go to the opening of a refrigerator if it would help her career.

Kathy Griffin to Play Lesbian Activist on 'Law & Order: SVU' (Hello, Emmy!)

by Chris Jordan, posted Nov 16th 2009 2:34PM
Kathy Griffin Law & Order: SVUD-list diva Kathy Griffin is about to star in an upcoming episode of 'Law & Order SVU', TV Guide is reporting.

Griffin will play a lesbian activist in the episode, airing Feb. 10 on NBC. Filming is scheduled to begin early next year.

Since Griffin is best known for her comedic work ('Suddenly Susan'; Bravo's 'My Life on the D-List'), we can only hope that the awards-hungry funny lady has booked 'SVU' to win another Emmy. And who can blame her? 'SVU' has dominated the guest acting Emmy categories in recent years, with awards going to Ellen Burstyn, Cynthia Nixon and Marcia Gay Harden.

Kathy Griffin's 'Let's Dance' May Air at Midseason

Kathy Griffin Let's DanceABC may tango with 'Let's Dance' after all.

Just days after the announcement of its premature demise, word is trickling out that the show could join the network's midseason lineup.

Kathy Griffin was set to host the dance competition, which planned to feature comedic performances by stars of some of the most iconic dances of all time. That meant we'd almost inevitably see someone tackle Michael Jackson's Motown 25th Anniversary performance of the moonwalk, as well as plenty of other classic video and movie performances ('Dirty Dancing,' anyone?)

Kathy Griffin dances her way into new ABC series

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 3rd 2009 6:01PM
bravo_kathy_griffin_mikeAttention, attention! This is not a joke. It's not a spoof or a gag. Kathy Griffin will host a dance show for ABC. That's right, the funny lady of Bravo's My Life on the D-List, has said yes to hosting Let's Dance, a new celebrity reality show in which stars compete with one another by re-creating classic routines from pop culture. That means someone is going to try and do Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" dance from Motown's 25th Anniversary Special, don't you think?

I am not a Dancing With the Stars fan, but this show sounds like something I'd be interested in watching for a couple of reason. Number one is Kathy Griffin. I think she's hilarious. She also loves celebrities, so I could see her really getting into this show and being the perfect built-in zingmeister. She'll say whatever comes to her mind, and -- fortunately -- that's usually pretty funny.

Who'll host the Oscars? The oddsmakers like Billy Crystal

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 3rd 2009 11:29AM
oscar_statuetteOscar roulette is usually played when it comes time to figure out the nominations. However, this year there seems to be a wheel of fortune spinning with the names of possible hosts for the show. Of course, the folks running the show have intimated that they might want to have a few stars sharing the duties. Historically, that hasn't worked out too well.

The other day when Hugh Jackman removed his name from the running, I asked you for your ideas and told you that I like Kathy Griffin. Jimmy liked George Clooney and Justin Timberlake. Sancty suggested Neil Patrick Harris.
