Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List

Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List
Welcome to the world of Kathy Griffin, the ultimate D-List celebrity. In Hollywood, where everything is list-oriented, Kathy has made a name for herself by making fun of A-List celebrities (like Nicole Kidman, Renee Zelwegger, Julia Roberts, and Cameron Diaz). In her new, behind-the-scenes show, where she does everything she can to make publicity for herself, Kathy exposes the evils, and the downright hilarious, aspects of Hollywood culture, as well as her surprisingly busy life. Whether attempting to redesign her "A-List" worthy home with her live-in gay visionary Mike Nielsen, all the while trying to get free furniture for the home, trying to organize a fundraiser, or struggling to sell DVDs, you can bet that Kathy Griffin will make you laugh. Despite her "low" status, Kathy has a core support group of family and friends, including her parents, John and Maggie, husband Matthew Moline, and best friends Tony Tripoli and Dennis Hensley, Kathy proves that you can still have fun while living life on the D-List.

Kathy wants to do something for women’s' health, and cooks up the idea to do a public pap smear as a publicity stunt idea with a positive message. Meanwhile, with the economy being what it is, ticket sales are low for her Madison Square Garden show, so Kathy has to go into self-promotion mode and does the media rounds. She does Joy Behar's show, and after their taping, the ladies become fast friends. Kathy presents her idea of the public pap smear, to a group of ladies from the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, explaining her good intentions -- and their eyes widen at the idea. The risks of creating a spectacle seem to outweigh the positives for their organization.
