D-lightful D-va

Kathy Griffin improvised her way from D-list status to household name. The following highlights surely helped . . .



Griffin’s first big breakout role is playing restaurant critic Vicki Groener on the NBC show Suddenly Susan.


Griffin steals the show in an episode of Seinfeld as Sally Weaver; the sad excuse for an actress who starts a comedy career by making fun of Jerry. She gets a successful cable show where she makes fun of celebrities . . . wait, why is this sounding familiar?


Griffin starts her streak of eight consecutive Emmy nominations with the Bravo reality show My Life on the D-List. It has since made her a two-time Emmy winner.


A majority of people thank God or Jesus after receiving an award, but what does Griffin say after receiving her first Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program? “Suck it, Jesus.” Let the controversy begin.


The View draws a line in the sand . . . and Griffin crosses it and ends up banned from the show. Don’t mess with Barbara Walters!


Griffin’s memoir, Official Book Club Selection, is not an official book club selection by Oprah . . . but I’m sure the clever marketing scheme helped sell a few copies.


As a huge supporter of LGBT rights, she organizes a march in Washington, D.C. to repeal the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy.


Griffin smokes a joint with the host of Showtime show The Green Room with Paul Provenza. Now that’s reality television!


Anderson Cooper gives Griffin a set of keys to his Long Island house. Griffin sexts nude photos of herself sprawled all over the journalist’s home to the former host of Anderson Cooper 360°. Lessons learned.
