Bravo orders fifth season of My Life on the D-List

Kathy Griffin’s two-time Emmy winning Bravo series My Life on the D-List has been renewed for a fifth season.

The renewal comes as “[r]eports said Griffin was being ‘aggressively pursued’ by other nets, some of which are offering her multi-tiered deals involving latenight and awards show-hosting duties,” Variety reports. Kathy’s new agency, Endeavor, told Variety those reports had “absolutely no truth,” but of course, they may have been a cleverly designed way to get the notoriously cheap Bravo to cough up more cash to keep their star.

The new season does not yet have an airdate nor is the production start date known; last year, the show started taping on New Year’s Eve and debuted in June.
