KATHY GRIFFIN REACHES FOR THE STARS (OR CLAWS HER WAY TO THE A-LIST) IN THE PREMIERE OF BRAVO'S TWO-TIME EMMY WINNING "KATHY GRIFFIN: MY LIFE ON THE D-LIST," MONDAY, JUNE 8 AT 10 PM ET/PT

"I'm An A-Lister In Training!" Says Griffin Of The Fifth Season

NEW YORK, NY - May 28, 2009 - Kathy Griffin will fight the fight for any good cause, whether it's rallying Grammy voters to nab Best Comedy Album for her nominated CD or tirelessly campaigning to finally get herself off of the D-List. These are just some of the weighty issues Kathy tackles in season five of Bravo's two-time Emmy winning series, "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," premiering Monday, June 8 at 10p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

Season five follows the comedienne as she steps up her game in an effort to increase her star status and land that coveted A-list position. After all, she is a two-time Emmy winner and a bikini model now. Team Griffin - assistant Tiffany Rinehart, tour manager Tom Vize, mom Maggie Griffin and untamed dogs Chance and Pom Pom - will also have their work cut out for them as Kathy puts them to work schmoozing and bribing, all for the cause. First, Kathy learns that any respectable A-Lister must be on Facebook. So naturally Kathy charges 88-year-old Maggie to manage and keep her page updated. Maggie only hopes that as payback some of her favorite A-Listers (like Betty White) will show up one day and bring wine. For a sneak peek go to http://www.bravotv.com/kathy-griffin-my-life-on-the-d-list/videos/kathys-back.

Throughout the season, Kathy seeks advice from some of her A-List celebrity friends on how they obtained their status: "See how I fare after tips and lessons from everyone from Paris Hilton to rapper T.I.," says Kathy of her celebrity adventures. "We're in Miami with unofficial mayor of Miami, Gloria Estefan, and unofficial deputy mayor, Rosie O'Donnell. I spend the weekend in Savannah at Paula Deen's house, hit Vegas with Bette Midler, do a casino gig with Lily Tomlin, spend the day in Harlem with Rev Al Sharpton and go to Palm Springs to visit Suzanne Somers' compound where I pray that Barry Manilow shows up."

This season Kathy also (unsuccessfully) rallies for a Grammy win for Best Comedy Album, canvasses door to door and on the California state capital for gay marriage rights, and obtains a star on the (Palm Springs) Walk of Fame. Perhaps getting this A-List thing isn't as easy as Kathy hoped.

Michael Levitt Productions and Picture This Television produce the fifth season of "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" for Bravo.
