I want to hang out with Kathy Griffin and Paula Deen

On Monday’s episode of My Life on the D List, Kathy went to Savannah to hang out with Paula Deen after she failed to win the Grammy for Best Comedy Album. Well…I…had a very boring bus ride back from Virginia on Sunday. I want to go Paula Deen’s house!

Paula gets new diamonds whenever she gets new hair, I think.

Paula gets new diamonds whenever she gets new hair, I think.

During her visit, Kathy hit on Paula’s single son, Bobby (I prefer Jamie, but he’s married), and Team Griffin attempted to cook something. And there was a big, boozy, Walker-style dinner, complete with Kathy commenting that Paula’s gay assistant, Brandon, was turning into a Jacqueline Susann novel. Which was awesome. But my favorite part was when Paula was tasting the monstrosities Team Griffin put together in her palatial kitchen, and confided that she knows “girls that sometimes, they don’t always swallow their food while they’re filming,” but that Paula always swallows her food. And I KNOW she is talking about Giada! That skinny twit does not eat her food. (But I do. It’s pretty good.)

I am loving where Kathy is going with all the splendid divas this season. I hope Cher is next. And here’s a fun piece of trivia for you to impress your friends: Paula Deen and Susan Sarandon are the same age. Susan is actually a few months older. Yep. Also, Amy Adams is older than Ryan Reynolds. I find that surprising.

Kathy doesn’t disappoint

I’m sure a lot of people think of her as grating, but I love that she says things like this on the air and I’m still sure she’ll get booked next year.

Kathy Griffin and the Coop to host New Year’s on CNN

I haven’t thought about Kathy Griffin in a while, but she’ll be on in full force on CNN tonight. She has great chemistry with Anderson Cooper, mostly because she busts his chops (as they say in 70s-era sitcoms) all the time and he has to maintain some degree of composure and professionalism.

I’ll probably DVR it, as I will be out on the town. Most likely passed out drunk in the corner of a dive bar by 12:05, covered with confetti and wearing a silly hat.

Kathy Griffin: Two times a lady

Apparently I’m both a bad gay and a bad blogger (but you already knew one of those). Little did I know that Kathy Griffin was nominated for both her reality show AND her comedy special “Straight to Hell.”

In light of this news (which isn’t actually news, but… you know…  ok, shut up…), here’s a really funny part of an interview that she did with Defamer.

I’m a double Emmy nominee. Can you believe this shit? Can I tell you the press release that Bravo wouldn’t let me do? Because they said they wanted something to put out there when I got the news today. And my official statement was, “Does this mean I can go to Lifetime and get more money like Project Runway did?” I thought that was funny, but today I heard from my publicist that Bravo won’t release that. So I said somebody with a sense of humor should release it, then.

Kathy Griffin starts tonight!

Are you as excited as you should be? Probably not.

Still, it’s been a good long while and I really want to see what kind of backstage shenanigans went down when Kathy co-hosted the New Year’s Eve special on CNN with Anderson Cooper. I am pretty sure cameras were rolling.

Moving on… here’s a clip from the show. Watch it. Or don’t — I won’t lose sleep.

I know you were worried.

Kathy Griffin: Sneak preview

My Life on the D-List is on its way back, and not a moment too soon as Top Chef and Work Out each approach season’s end.

The one thing that gets me about Kathy Griffin’s show is that as the series gets more and more popular, it risks losing its identity. That is, after winning an Emmy, dating the Apple guy, selling out Madison Square Garden and having a show that lasts four seasons, it’s getting harder and harder to sell the idea that Kathy’s a scrappy little performer who is happy with whatever she gets. During her first Bravo comedy special, I truly believed she was happy to get a gig at Hollywood Squares. Now, I’m pretty sure she’d only do it to up the perception that’s she’s the underdog.

It’s a real concern for a comedian — to be perceived as hapless. Smug people who get what they want are rarely funny. But, I guess, they’ve got their title and they’re sticking to it. It’ll still be funny, I’m sure, but that’s one thing that’s been bugging me as the hoopla begins over the new season.

Here’s a preview of the next season:

Two broads you can’t not love

Anyone who’s ever come within a three foot radius of me knows my love of Kathy Griffin. But I also really like Rosie O’Donnell, although I’ll never really become a quote-unquote fan. I just like her brand of lesbianic, plainspoken humor and the fact that she’s willing to tell anyone who deserves it to suck it.

Via Perez Hilton (don’t ask — I don’t usually surf there), here’s a little Vlog Rosie made with Kathy.

It’s something to watch.

This is my life: “Smile for the camera!” “But I am.” “No, you’re not. Smile!”

TiFaux: Your one-stop shop for two-week-old news

This is kind of old news, but here it is anyway. Kathy Griffin was on Jimmy Kimmel the other day and talked a bit about the upcoming season of My Life on the D-List — this includes the fact that her boyfriend, Apple bazillionaire Steve Wozniak will be on.

Via Towleroad, here’s part one of her interview with Jimmy. Click through to see part two. [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/fPITx2it-F0" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]
