She’s a Fragile Effin’ Flower

Calling all gals and gays — Kathy Griffin’s in the house!

It happened just as Kathy Griffin caught a whiff of her own skin burning. Her efforts to reach mass-fame status landed her a spot on the lower-tier reality game show Celebrity Mole Hawaii. To win — and win she did — Griffin forced herself to tread barefoot across searing-hot coals. It was this desperate, shameless act that brought her to a humbling understanding: She is a D-list celebrity.

In typical Griffin style, she didn’t mourn her exile from Hollywood’s inner circle — in fact she embraced it, and that led to her getting her own reality show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List. She has used that coveted Bravo time slot to exploit her bottom-feeder fame, a shtick she has done with such pizzazz that the Emmy Awards committee took note and tossed her a statue. You can see this sassy, brassy belle perform in the flesh (none of it burning) Thursday at 8 p.m. at Hard Rock Live. Tickets range from $49 to $79.
