Bravo confirms 'Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List' renewal
By Reality TV World staff, 09/22/2008
Despite a report to the contrary, Bravo has confirmed that it has renewed Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List for a fifth season.
On Friday, The New York Post had reported that Bravo -- which is already in the process of losing its flagship Project Runway reality series to Lifetime -- was "about to lose another winning show."
According to the report, Griffin -- who just won her second consecutive Outstanding Reality Program Emmy Award for My Life on the D-List on September 13 -- was being "aggressively" pursued by other networks.
"Other networks are aggressively pursuing Kathy for a multitiered deal, which would include hosting a late-night talk show, award shows, and continuing her reality show and comedy specials," a "well-placed" source toldThe Post, which had also reported that Griffin's representative had "no comment" on the report.
However Bravo quickly denied My Life on the D-List would be changing networks and stated it had already renewed the show for a fifth season.
"That's surprising since we've picked her up for another season of her series," a Bravo spokesperson toldThe Hollywood Reporter.
Griffin's Endeavor talent agency also denied the report.
"[There's] absolutely no truth [to the report]," a press representative toldDaily Variety.
