This is the best reality show that follows around a celebrity. Unlike Being Bobby Brown, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List is one of the reality shows that makes a celebrity look better.
Kathy Griffin is a stand-up comedian. Her biggest role was her four year job on NBC’s Suddenly Susan, starring Brooke Shields. Kathy is also well known for her recurring part on Seinfeld. She’s also had guest appearances on ER and Mad About You. Kathy considers herself to be on the D-List, the bottom of the Hollywood Celebrity barrel.
The reason why this is such a refreshing show is that Kathy doesn’t hide anything. She lets the cameras see everything. Her emotional moments and some very embarrassing moments. Kathy could have just said, “No! You’re not showing this.” But she doesn’t. It shows what life is truly like on the D-List.
The series has had some great moments. The most memorable one was Kathy’s fundraiser. She worked for months to get big name celebrities to appear. The biggest one that showed up was Ray Romano. Ray only showed up for 15 minutes, but Kathy was more than happy that he just showed up.
Her endless promotion of her DVD, Kathy Griffin: Allegedly, has been a big part of the show. On one of the episodes she goes to a store in New York for a DVD signing. 11 people show up. It was very embarrassing for her. But her talk of the DVD on the show has worked. It’s #61 on the DVD sales charts at amazon.com. On Netflix, it’s on very long wait to rent it.
One of the better moments of the show was when Kathy appeared on Jay Leno. She was very excited and had lots of plans for the show. After the show Kathy was seen getting into the limo crying. She was in tears because Jay Leno made a rude comment to her and embarrassed her.
Kathy isn’t the only person on this show. Her husband Matt is just a wonderful person, especially having to deal with all of Kathy’s neurotic behavior. He’s been seen putting weights in his pockets to get Gastric Bypass Surgery and selling DVDs outside of Kathy’s stand-up shows. Kathy’s parents are also a hoot to watch. They aren’t as outspoken as she is, but you can see where she gets her humor from.
It’s a great reality show. One of the cream of the crop. This isn’t even a guilty pleasure show. It’s just a great show to watch and you don’t feel disgusting afterwards. Watch this show! You won’t regret it!
