Kathy Griffin’s ‘D-List’ earns A’s and B’s

KathyGriffin: My Life on the D-List might soon rate a higher grade.
As the star of Bravo’s D-List, potty-mouthed Griffin has won back-to-back Emmys When the stand-up comedian’s reality show returns for its fifth season this summer, she’ll be spending time with some decidedly A- and B-listers: Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin, Rosie O’Donnell, Christina Aguilera, Taylor Swift and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.
D-List will continue to focus on Griffin’s personal life and tongue-in-cheek publicity stunts. Last season, she decided to make a comedy album primarily to garner a Grammy nomination, which she eventually received, and developed a relationship with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. But this season’s head-turning stars will give D-List a bit of a talk-show feel, says Griffin, 48.
“I get to live in their magical A-list world for a day, but the show will still have the reality element, like my mother (Maggie) with her box of wine,” says Griffin.
