Kathy Griffin falls in front of paparazzi for publicity

Kathy Griffin fell out of a cab last week, and said this weekend that it was actually an intentional publicity stunt for the new season of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.

“Part of episode seven is that I do anything to be in the tabs in London. They’re very big on pics of celebs falling drunkenly out of cabs. The shot was almost ruined when some nice lady tried to help me!” she told Page Six. But overall, the publicity stunt “worked!” she says.

Page Six reports that “she took a taxi to an event she knew would be well-covered by the paparazzi. As she was stepping out of the taxi, she ‘tripped’ and fell face-first to the pavement.”

The new season of her show debuts June 5.
