Kathy Griffin's billionaire beau Steve Wozniak to appear on 'D-List'

Billionaire Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak likes to avoid the spotlight, so even his girlfriend Kathy Griffin was "extremely surprised" when he agreed to appear on Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.
"He doesn't care for the publicity and yet he is willing to be on My Life on the D-List," said Griffin as a guest during Monday night's broadcast of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. "We have some fun stuff planned with him, and I think that when you get to see him on the show, you'll see how incredibly brilliant and hilarious and wonderful he is."
Bravo began production of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List's fourth season last month when she hosted CNN's New Year's Eve coverage with Anderson Cooper -- both of whom had previously appeared on ABC's The Mole -- with Cooper hosting its first two seasons and Griffin winning Celebrity Mole Hawaii, the show's third season
"I love him. I absolutely love him," gushed Griffin about Cooper. "They also let the D-List crew cover it, so it will be on the next season of My Life on the D-List. I get along great with [Cooper]. He's very smart, he's been around the whole world and laughs at my jokes."
Wozniak also presumably laughs at Griffin's jokes, as the two met in Saratoga when he came to see her perform.
"He came to see me live at a theater that I think he owns actually -- sometimes he just owns stuff and doesn't tell me -- but he came to see me live and had never seen me on TV or anything," Griffin told Kimmel, adding My Life on the D-List is now her beau's "favorite show."
"It's also the only show he's seen in a very long time," she added.
"He's an amazing man and a genius. We usually talk about my life and my needs and my interests," Griffin joked. "He meets every one of my needs."
She and Wozniak arrived at the subsequent 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony together, and while Griffin was reportedly wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring, she played coy when asked about wedding plans.
