Kathy Griffin and Her 'Same Name' Counterpart Discuss Life-Swapping Experience on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 29th 2011 6:15PM
Two Kathy Griffin's from 'Same Name' on 'The Talk'Kathy Griffin spent years showing people how tough her life was on 'My Life On the D-List,' and now she has outside testimony to prove it. Kathy Griffin, a fiberglass saleswoman from Fayetteville, Ga, appeared on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) to discuss her experience switching places with comedian Kathy Griffin for the show 'Same Name.' The more famous Griffin appeared by video from her namesake's home in Georgia.

"My biggest surprise has been the work that goes into a production," said fiberglass Kathy. "It's a lot of work. Kathy's got a tough life. And being a comedian, I learned, is really not easy." Comedian Kathy wasn't having a good time of it, either. "My domestic abilities are not what they're used to," she said, surrounded by the other Kathy's husband and two boys. "First of all, with my fame, I had to actually pour my own soda, find the ice, and the straw."

Bravo Confirms End of the Road for 'Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jan 6th 2011 7:00AM
Kathy Griffin's going back to her comedy roots as Bravo confirmed Wednesday that 'My Life on the D-List' won't be back for a seventh season.

Instead, Griffin will record four, hour-long stand-up comedy specials for Bravo, one of which will be aired each quarter in 2011. She told People magazine that although letting go was hard, it was the right thing to do.

"It was a really tough decision because I think of 'The D-List' as pretty much my baby for the last six seasons, and I also think it was really time to stop doing it. ... Reality is great, but I really didn't set out to be a reality star. So now it's time to spread my wings and show that I'm a little different than Kate Gosselin."

Kathy Griffin sets Jimmy Kimmel straight about Paris Hilton's lasagna

That's not a euphemism and I'm not being cute. Paris Hilton actually made lasagna for Jimmy Kimmel after a recent appearance on his show. Well, supposedly. Kathy Griffin isn't buying it. She explains to Jimmy what she thinks actually happened.

Kathy Griffin has dinner with Lily Tomlin

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 10th 2009 4:25PM
This is a clip from an upcoming episode of My Life on the D-List. Kathy Griffin goes to see one her idols, Lily Tomlin, and then the two go out to dinner. But the interesting part of the clip is when Griffin talks about having a ten year ban on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and how it was just lifted (I assume this was filmed before Conan took over The Tonight Show). Griffin appears tonight on Letterman's show for the first time in twelve years so that ban was lifted too.

TV Squad Ten: TV's biggest tramps

by Kona Gallagher, posted Mar 16th 2009 2:30PM
kate austen lostYou've gotta admit: tramps are fun. Their boozy, often promiscuous antics are the life of any party. Whether you're cheering them on or witnessing their antics with horror, tramps make any situation interesting. The same goes for TV shows. From Blanche DuBois to, well, most of The Real World cast members after season 3 or so, the television landscape has been filled with entertainingly trampy characters.

They may steal your husband, dance on a bar, or just generally leave a path of destruction in their wake. Whatever it is, it's sure to be memorable. For this reason, TV tramps are not to be looked down upon; they are to be revered. So consider this list a tribute: a tribute to TV's biggest tramps. May they never reexamine the path their life has taken.

Awesome! Neil Patrick Harris and Sarah Chalke to host Creative Arts Emmys

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 22nd 2008 11:01AM
Neil is awesomeThe Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards -- affectionately known as the Shmemmys to Kathy Griffin fans -- has at least one more viewer this year. I will be watching the other Emmy presentation, the awards that come before the Primetime Emmys. The big one with all the major categories, musical numbers, clip montages and near-mandatory attendance by the nominees is the Emmys. The other one is the technical awards. But I will be watching for a very good reason: Neil Patrick Harris and Sarah Chalke will be co-hosting the Creative Arts Emmys this year on the E! channel, September 20.

Neil, an Emmy nominee for How I Met Your Mother, and Sarah, who is also a guest/semi-regular on Mother as well as a permanent regular on Scrubs, are a great choice for this gig. They're smart, funny, quick, attractive and maybe even unpredictable.

I mean, wouldn't it be a hoot if Neil came on stage in his Dr. Horrible gear and asked Sarah if her Hanes undies were riding up or doing their job? She should then counter and ask him about that smell, you know ... the Old Spice? Hey, maybe they should get Bruce Campbell to confront Neil about the Old Spice deal -- that was Bruce's commercial before Neil took over!

Kathy Griffin says no thanks to Dancing with the Stars

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 1st 2008 8:38AM
Kathy no pantsKathy Griffin may be the ultimate D-lister, but the Emmy-winning star of Bravo's reality hit Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List, is really a smart cookie in my book. She told TV's Extra that she turned down Dancing with the Stars, a top-drawer, sort of B-list opportunity. "I have a hard offer for Dancing with the Stars," she revealed, adding that it's not for her. "I can't even touch my toes!"

Now, before you think Kathy was being haughty or superior, to me she was just being smart. While appearing on Dancing with the Stars would be a great chance for exposure, appearing on DWTS is one of the toughest gigs in show business. I hand it to Kathy for knowing her limitations. The kind of physical workout involved is just too much, especially if you figure that you're likely to embarrass yourself. I mean, what did a stint on DWTS do for Penn Jillette?

Kathy Griffin welcomed on Leno, ends Tonight Show ban

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 15th 2008 8:02PM
Kathy and JayIt was an historic occasion yesterday last Thursday on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, didn't you know? The lady who lives to be banned -- and re-banned in the case of The View -- Kathy Griffin appeared as Jay Leno's guest. What's the big deal?

Well, if you recall the first season of Kathy's show, Bravo's My Life on the D List, the comic was rather brutally insulted by Jay when he called her ugly, and in the subsequent episodes of the show, Kathy revealed that she was put on The Tonight Show's "do not invite list."

And yet, the other night, there was Kathy in the prime seat, chatting it up with Jay, dissing celebrities as is her wont, and generally looking like the D List is now just the title of her show, not her true show business status.

Five TV stars who've exceeded expectations

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 29th 2008 1:24PM
Ty in suedeWhen I look at some of the people who have emerged as today's biggest stars on TV, I scratch my head and wonder, "how did that happen?" There are a few stars who have completely exceeded my expectations -- and I bet yours, too. In fact, after you read my five (no cell phone pun intended), I'm betting that you'll have a few more overachievers to add to the list.

1) Ty Pennington
I'm not ashamed to admit that for a couple of years I was hooking on TLC's Trading Spaces. It may have been the perky Paige Davis, the home improvement on a $1,000, the cool things that the designers did in just 24 hours -- whatever it was, I was a regular viewer. Oh, yes, there was also a carpenter on the show named Ty Pennington.
