I have been on the road for the past five days, which means I’ve heard the following phrase a lot:
“Do people tell you that you look like…Kathy Griffin?”
Why, yes…yes, they do. Pretty much every day. But especially when I am in airports or train stations or anywhere that people — gay men in particular — think Kathy might be out and about.
I really don’t mind. Even though Kathy’s show on Bravo is called “Life on the D-List,” let’s face it — the lady is an A-List celeb now. She’s won two Emmys and has been nominated for two more this year.
If you watch the “D-List,” which used to simply chronicle her attempts to promote her tour — you’ve probably noticed it’s morphed into something decidedly more high concept this year. Yes, she’s still a shameless self-promoter, but now she’s using her celebrity to draw attention to causes she believes in, like the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and ovarian cancer awareness.
Her methods are uniquely Team Griffin, which means she is often cleaning up messes she made along the way. That’s what makes the show so hilarious.
That…and her toilet of a mouth.
