Kathy Griffin is an Emmy Award-winning stand-up comedienne, producer, actress, and a self-proclaimed “D-list celebrity.” She has also been a voice actress, a red carpet commentator, and a guest host on ‘The View’. She also appeared in an Eminem music video. She has honed a comedy and television career that pokes fun at her own relatively modest place in the Hollywood hierarchy as well as Scientology, plastic surgery and snooty attitudes.  Among Griffin’s staples are Clay Aiken, Barbara Walters, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Gwyneth Paltrow, Star Jones, Oprah Winfrey, Britney Spears, and Lindsay Lohan.

“I work constantly, I’m really driven by money, I’m really interested in money. It is not like I am rich by other star’s standards, but I constantly strive for more.”

(About her D-List status) “I’m open about it. You have the A-listwith Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman. The B-list is, like, Ray Romano and Debra Messing. For a while I hovered on the C-List. But then I did ‘Celebrity Mole,’ and I jumped right to D. Once you do ‘Celebrity Mole, there’s no coming back. The D-list is people who have shows on the Animal Planet.”

“The more I’m in an actual war zone, the more it’s just ugly. It’s not cool, it’s not a Toby Keith song, it’s not opening up a can of whoop-ass. It’s just horrible.”

“My niece and nephew are here for the weekend. It’s time to act like I like kids.”

– Kathy Griffin  (1960- )
