Kathy Griffin Will Keep Talking for Bravo
Bravo can't stop talking. Kathy Griffin will host a new one-hour weekly talk show for the cable network starting this spring, in which she'll rant about pop culture, perform some standup routines and interview celebrities.
The new Griffin talk show (dubbed Kathy) comes on the heels of Bravo's decision to turn its signature late-night chat series Watch What Happens: Live into a five-nights-a-week series. Griffin is a proven star at Bravo, where she won two Emmys for My Life on the D-List.
Bravo also greenlighted two more stand-up specials starring Griffin, who has already starred in 13 comedy specials for the network since 2005. "She's been a part of Bravo's DNA for so long I think she'd show up in our dental records," says Frances Berwick, President of Bravo and Style Media.
Beyond talk, Bravo is cooking up another food show. The network of Top Chef recently confirmed that celebrity chefs Cat Cora and Curtis Stone (who's also the host of Top Chef Masters) will host Around the World in 80 Plates, which Bravo calls its "most ambitious production to date."
Around the World in 80 Plates, which premieres in May, follows 12 chefs as they race across 10 countries in 44 days. Also on tap: New series Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis, Shahs of Sunset, Love Broker and Million Dollar Listing New York, all of which debut in March. The network also has Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding, following the marriage of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak, ready for spring.
Bravo also announced new seasons of Pregnant in Heels, The Millionaire Matchmaker and Million Dollar Listing LA.
