Despite causing an uproar from Catholic League president, Bill Donohue, for telling Jesus to "suck it" while accepting an Emmy last year, Kathy Griffin and her My Life on the D-List
will be back for a fourth season. Bravo finally announced the confirmation a month after Griffin already let it slip that season 4 is in the offing.
Not only will Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List
be back for a fourth turn, it returns souped up from the previous six episode order to 10.
"Kathy has a brilliant ability to capture the pulse of pop culture with her devastatingly entertaining commentary," Frances Berwick, executive at Bravo, remarked. "Kathy's career and fame continue to grow, threatening her D-List status, and providing a hilarious and authentic insight into the life of a performer."
Early last month, Griffin let the cat out of the bag when she told Access Hollywood
during GQ's Man of the Year Awards ceremony, that Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List
would begin taping for the fourth season on New Year's Eve.
"Life is good," Griffin told Access Hollywood. "We are actually starting season four. We are going to actually start taping on New Year's Eve and then it will be back in June and hopefully people will like it."
In the same interview, Griffin joked that her show is immune to any fallout from the ongoing writers' strike.
"As if my show could ever afford writers to begin with. What writers?" Griffin said in jest. "It's somebody with a camcorder following me into the bathroom. That's what my TV show is."
Her glib description aside, Griffin did express sympathy for the scribes and their cause.
"I think the view people need to realize, too... it's really not the writers being whiney," Griffin continued. "It's really these corporations are making so much money from all this Web content and we all see those pop up commercials. So somebody is getting that money, and it is not the writers at this point."
Under the production of Picture This Television, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List
took home the Outstanding Reality Program honor September of last year at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. That was when Griffin made that “suck it” Jesus remark that outraged the head of the Catholic League. E! was forced to censor the said comment when it aired an edited broadcast of the pre-taped ceremony later.
