Season 4 — Episode 1 (Season Premiere) Season 4, Episode 1

Hey, KGF's (that would be Kathy Griffin Fans, of course)! It has been much too long since I've blogged about my favorite D-lister-who's-actually-a-C-lister's Emmy-winning reality series. This season, Bravo is treating us with nine episodes - nine, according to Bravo's press release, but Kathy's been on the talk show circuit (or at least the few shows she's not banned from) bragging about this season's " ten episodes" so maybe Kathy knows something that Bravo doesn't? Either way, I was very excited to catch up with the person who I think is the funniest person on the planet, even though I refuse to believe she is still a D-lister. I mean, how many D-listers get to co-host CNN's New Year's Eve live 90 minute countdown with Anderson Cooper? The season premiere of the 4th season of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List began with a bang, or at least some New Year's Eve fireworks, as Kathy got the absolutely A-list gig of being Anderson Cooper's live co-host. Since Kathy knew CNN didn't hire her because she was a "hard-hitting journalist," you could tell she was a bit nervous, especially since CNN didn't have a 7-second delay button. You could also tell right away that Anderson was a Kathy fan - he couldn't keep a straight face with her, on or off camera, and no matter how racy or rude Kathy got, Anderson just laughed on (which made me respect him even more than I already do). He didn't seem to mind that Kathy kept calling him "Andy" but Kathy's assistant Jessica made a mistake by playing assistant #2 Tiffany's drinking game and losing. Since Team Griffin had to take a shot every time Kathy called Anderson "Andy," Jessica, much more of a light-weight than Tiffany and tour manager Tom (who skipped the game), lost big-time and got the most inebriated. Drunk Jessica repeatedly saying "Five shots too many!" and taking a nap/passing out in the elevator was a riot. Other highlights: - As I've mentioned in the past, Kathy's mom Maggie reminds me of an older version of my own mother Joan, especially since Maggie thinks that Anderson Cooper is "just darling" (Joan, calls everything "just darling"). Another similarity: Maggie used another Joan term when describing Anderson later: "He's such a doll!" - Maggie cracked me up when she begged Kathy to play nice and not be sacrilegious while co-hosting with Anderson: "Nothing religious, please!" A classic Kathy comeback: "I don't apologize, mother. That's why I'm special." - You knew Kathy and Apple co-founder/billionaire genius Steve Wozniak wouldn't exactly be a match made in heaven, but Kathy certainly was able to take advantage of his notoriety, wealth and influence by walking the red carpet with him. Michael Moore didn't seem to care who Kathy was, as long as he got to meet "the Woz." - Going up against Planet Earth at the Producer's Guild Awards, Kathy felt she had no chance since Oprah put her "Oprah stamp of approval" on it, including it as part of "Oprah's Favorite Things." Kathy: "I'm going to do a show called Uranus and it's about your butt. There! Where's my award?" No one else, and I mean no one, has the guts and the audacity to talk sh-t about Oprah on national television like Kathy. And that's reason #73.4 as to why I love me some Kathy! - Watching Maggie meet Steve was hilarious, with Maggie asking him to curb his enthusiasm about computer advancement: "You guys need to stop. Computers are running our lives!" Kathy thought Maggie would be more impressed if Steve invented wine. Earlier, when Kathy watched Maggie drink wine poured from a bottle rather than a box, I loved Kathy's "Look at you!" Even better was when Kathy was jokingly choosing between Steve and Maggie if Maggie screwed up during their meet-n-greet: "Money talks and Maggie walks." - When Planet Earth ended up winning, Kathy blamed it on Oprah: "Oprah f---ed me again!" Later, Kathy once again stressed her displeasure: "I'm moving to Pluto! That's how much I hate the Planet Earth now! And Woz will build a spaceship in his garage." - Funniest moment for sure was when Kathy was in the process of presenting an award and there was a loud gunshot-like sound and Kathy instantly pretended to be shot down after insulting Oprah. In a floor-length gown, she fell to the floor, making everyone at the awards laugh hysterically: "My dying words: Don't...ever...make...an...Oprah...joke..." Brilliant. - It was already funny hearing Kathy diss American Idol producer Simon Fuller since he was getting the Visionary Award: "Simon Fuller should get the 'Made A Lot Of Money For Reinventing Star Search' award, but visionary? Visionary?" Next week, the show moves to its regular time: Thursdays at 10pm ET. OK, Kathy fans. Let me know what you thought of the season premiere.
