Kathy Griffin denies 'My Life on the D-List' fifth season deal with Bravo
By John Bracchitta, 10/14/2008
Kathy Griffin wants her Emmy gold converted into more cash in her wallet.
Although Bravo stated it had already renewed her Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List reality series after the show's second-straight Emmy Award win last month, Griffin says she still hasn't signed a deal for a fifth season of the show, the Chicago Sun-Timesreported on Friday.
"You'd think that having won a second freakin' Emmy would entitle me to a few more bucks... Hey, I'm just looking for tens more dollars from Bravo," Griffin told the Sun-Times of her contract negotiations with network.
While Griffin told the Sun-Times she does hope to reach a deal with Bravo -- which has aired Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List since its debut in 2005 -- she's also keeping her options open.
"I am talking to another [broadcast] network and a cable network, so we'll see," Griffin told the paper.
Last month's Bravo statement had come in response to a New York Post report in which the newspaper had reported that Griffin was being "aggressively" pursued by other networks and Bravo -- which is already the process of losing its flagship Project Runway reality series -- was "about to lose another winning show."
This isn't the first time that Bravo has allegedly confirmed or announced a reality show's renewal before reaching an agreement with its stars. Earlier this year, the network was reportedly involved in a similar situation with the cast of its The Real Housewives of New York City series.
