Kathy Griffin Leaves “The D-List”, Gets 4 Comedy Specials!

Kathy Griffin may be leaving The D-List on Bravo, but she isn’t leaving Bravo,she just signed up to do 4 comedy specials on network!

“It was a really tough decision because I think of the D-List as pretty much my baby for the last six seasons and I also think it was really time to stop doing it,” Griffin, 50, says by phone from L.A. “Reality is great, but I really didn’t set out to be a reality star. So now it’s time to spread my wings and show that I’m a little different than Kate Gosselin.”

“I’m not saying better,” she says, laughing, “but maybe separate myself from the pack a little bit.”

But don’t feel bad for Kathy she will be doing 4 comedy specials on the network!

Bravo has ordered four new stand-up comedy specials with Kathy Griffin, the most in a single year for the comedian and star-executive producer of the network’s Emmy-winning reality series Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List. Since 2005, Griffin has done 8 comedy specuals for Bravo, most recently Kathy Griffin: Whores on Crutches. The new one-hour specials will air quarterly in 2011. “I went to Bravo and told them I thought I was being a little too nice in my stand up specials.  They agreed… and gave me four more.  Let the fur fly,” said Griffin.
