Fantastic news: Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List has apparently been renewed, as production on a second season begins in February. Although there’s yet to be an official announcement from Bravo, whose offer Kathy said earlier was not enough, she says the cameras will be back in 2006.
According to Page Six, which relegates this news to the second-to-last paragraph of its item, Kathy “is starting to film the second season of her Bravo show, ‘Life on the D List,’ in February as well as taping another Bravo special.”
Tragically, Kathy will disappear from one of her regular television appearances. As the rest of the Page Six report says, E!’s CEO Ted “Harbert informed Griffin’s lawyer her services would no longer be needed at E!” So, no more red carpet Kathy.
Kathy said, “Apparently Ted told my reps that the E! red carpet is a puzzle and I am a piece of the puzzle, which is a wonderful puzzle piece, but I don’t fit this particular puzzle and that when I see the puzzle, I will get it. I am a piece that doesn’t understand only because they can’t tell me who will take over. They kept saying, ‘When you see the new puzzle, you will know it is not a personal insult.’ I was like, are you kidding? I got canned, bottom line. I can’t even be like Star Jones and be like, ‘Oh, I have a book tour coming up!’”
Update: Guess who’s replacing Kathy on the red carpet for E!? American Idol host Ryan Seacrest. Tragic, but at least this will provide some great material for Kathy’s act.
