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.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
