THE 'D-LIST' DOES LONDON ON TUESDAY, JULY 17 AT 10PM ET/PT
Kathy Griffin Indulges in Transatlantic Antics with Ricky Gervais and Graham Norton on Bravo's Hit Series "Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List"
Plus the True Story Behind Griffin's Truce with Celebrity Blogger Perez Hilton
Burbank, Calif. - July 13, 2007 - Oh no she didn't! Yes she does! In the upcoming episode of Bravo's hit series "My Life on the D-List", Kathy Griffin receives some exciting news � "D-List" and two of her comedy specials have just been bought by the E! Channel in the UK. Griffin and her posse head across the pond where she attempts to become an international superstar. Griffin gets schooled in British etiquette and humour from such A-list Brits as Ricky Gervais and Graham Norton. Things get dodgy when Griffin has to slum it in a rundown comedy club not at all fit for the queen of comedy she is. She also finds time to date a British gent (Chucky Venice from BBC's Footballers' Wives) and becomes the darling of the British tabloids. Stateside, after reading a kind post about her father's passing on Perez Hilton's site, Griffin and the blue-haired blogger make their peace for the ultimate Hollywood ending! Bravo will premiere the episode Tuesday, July 17 at 10:00pm ET/PT.
GRIFFIN ON HER PEACE OFFERING TO CELEBRITY BLOGGER PEREZ HILTON:
"I know how to get to the blue-haired, gay bloggers. I gave him my best sex toys from my bestest gay gift bag ever. I hope he appreciates it."
GRIFFIN ON PEREZ HILTON BEING SHOCKED THAT SHE HAS FANS:
"I thought it was funny when Perez thought that when someone came up to me it was staged and he kept asking if I had paid the person or called the person ahead of time. Sometimes people come up to me and want me to sign something!"
GRIFFIN ON MEETING UP WITH RICKY GERVAIS FOR ADVICE ON HOW TO MAKE BRITISH AUDIENCES LAUGH:
"I didn't even ask Ricky Gervais the stuff I was supposed to, but I think just being around him will be good and I will be funnier through osmosis."
GRIFFIN ON VICTORIA BECKHAM:
"I want to be like Posh Spice where everywhere I go people are interested in my weight fluctuation, and my giant head."
GRIFFIN ON OPRAH'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS IN AFRICA:
"You know how Oprah opened that school in Africa? She opened a school called the Leadership Academy for Girls in Africa and gave these girls a chance that they would never have and then three weeks later, it came out in the press that the students were calling it a prison and the parents were complaining that it was a prison. Now, I think that's funny that Oprah opens a school that's basically a prison in the jungle in Africa...But then the real story is that Oprah personally called up the parents who complained and you know she reamed them...Like how scary would that be to get the call from Oprah like, 'What'd you say about me again? Say it!'"
