Talented comic Kathy Griffin wants off the D-List and is asking for America's help. Timed to coincide with the second season launch of her series Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, Bravo is launching a campaign to help get Kathy off the D-List once and for all. Kathy supporters are voting online at offthedlist.com and through a toll free number (1-888-kathydlist), and in just over a week of voting the results are already proving to be quite interesting. Griffin has agreed to try and accomplish one of four tasks, all of which are sure to help her reach A-list status. After tabulating over 100,000 votes thus far, the breakdown is: 18% of Americans have asked that Kathy join Scientology; 21% have requested that she adopt a baby in Namibia; 22% think that giving Ryan Seacrest a mani/pedi would get her off the D-list; but the overwhelming majority, 38% of all votes tallied, want Kathy and Dame Judi Dench to spend some meaningful time together and release a sex tape. Kathy sympathizers have until June 3 to cast their vote, and the winning option will be announced in the premiere episode of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List on June 6.
Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List debuts its second season on Tuesday, June 6 (9:00 - 10:00 p.m. ET/PT). In the premiere episode, Kathy explains that her life over the past year has been crappier than ever -- she filed for divorce from Matt (but now they're reconciling), she lost her beloved dog Captain in a car accident and she was fired from her E! red carpet gig. Kathy tries to turn things around with a celebrity auction on eBay. She'll raise money for charity and get some much needed publicity. The item? Spend a weekend with Kathy at her house.
A special half-hour sneak peek of the premiere of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List will be presented exclusively on Yahoo! Tuesday, May 23.
The action-packed new season of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List will unfold over six one-hour episodes airing Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo. This season Kathy endures hellish moments with her personal trainer and nutritionist, hires a dog trainer in an attempt to get Chance and Pom-Pom under control, attends a gay prom, baby sits for her niece and nephew, takes her parents away for a luxury weekend, goes ice skating with Olympian Johnny Weir, and tours the Red States.
One of the more exciting moments during the season is when Kathy travels to Iraq to entertain the troops at various camps. She wins soldiers over at every stop with her no-holds-barred humor, and is won over herself by the courageous young men and women who welcome her with open arms. As if suddenly vaulted to the A-List, Kathy is even granted her own gun-toting escorts for the journey. Kathy also encounters hard-working Army dogs in Kuwait, who were noticeably better trained than Pom-Pom.
