In addition to interviewing celebs on the red carpet, comedian Kathy Griffin has played Eminems nurse in a music video and Brooke Shieldss bitter colleague on Suddenly Susan. So its no surprise she landed on Hollywoods D list. But the surgically enhanced, red-headed vixen might have crossed paparazzi lines into a whole new fame category. Shes had big success with her HBO comedy specials; My Life on the D-List has aired for six seasons; and she has even scored a few book deals. Hey, maybe shes not so D-List anymore.
Following in the comedy footsteps of Joan Rivers, Griffin has paved the way for other femme comedians with her razor-sharp tongue. When she won one of her two Emmys, she said, Now, a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. He didnt help me a bit. So all I can say is, Suck it, Jesus this award is my god now!
