Kathy Griffin Details Fight With Ellen DeGeneres, Talks Fallout From Trump Photo During Comedy Tour
The comedienne who was told she would never work again just played a sold-out show at the Dolby Theatre.

Kathy Griffin, who was dropped by her representation, fired by CNN and Squatty Potty alike, and put under a media blackout after she took part in a photo shoot that saw her holding a Donald Trump mask dripping in ketchup, implying the president had been beheaded, has been on a Laugh Your Head Off world tour to prove that just “because they tried to put [her] out to pasture” doesn’t mean she would moo, she said at her Los Angeles stop Thursday.

“It’s not all jokes tonight,” she said. “I’m also spilling piping hot tea.”

Self-proclaimed to be known for being a “starf—er” who tells “dick jokes,” her three-hour set — performed in the now-infamous dress from that Tyler Shields photo shoot — didn’t skimp on the usual brand of raucous,

Emmys 2012: What Should Win Outstanding Reality Program? Take Our Poll!
It’s an eclectic mix of programs — featuring one previous winner, three prior nominees, and a pair of first-time contenders — in the 2012 Emmy race for Outstanding Reality Program. (The category is not to be confused with Outstanding Reality Show Competition; check out our “who should win?” poll in that category here.)

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, which took home the statuette in 2010, is back in the race after a one-year hiatus, while perennial nominee Antiques Roadshow (nominated for the eighth straight time) will try to reverse its also-ran fortunes.

Kathy Griffin's 10 Funniest Moments

Kathy Griffin has starred in plenty of fine television series before, including Kathy's My So-Called Reality on MTV, Bravo's wonderful My Life on the D-List, and even Suddenly Susan, I say. But no format is a better fit for the comedienne than a talk show, and her new jam Kathy on the Bravo Network will hopefully reinvigorate the tired genre once and for all. Its first episode was lovely, and thus, it's time we reflect on Kathy's 10 funniest moments ever. You can claim that her D-list gossipmongering is just shtick, and you can even claim that the 51-year-old firestarter is a bit more aloof than she used to be, but you can't say that the woman doesn't get it. I consider myself a longtime Kathy superfan (though I prefer her older standup specials and mourn My Life on the D-List every day), so hopefully this is a comprehensive countdown.

10 Big Questions For Kathy Griffin

10 Big Questions For Kathy Griffin
Though comedian and actress Kathy Griffin established her career in stand-up by painting herself as a Hollywood outsider -- most famously reflected in the title of her Emmy-winning Bravo series, "Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List" -- her unapologetic, tell-it-like-it-is approach to comedy and social commentary have earned her a growing fan base, not to mention lifetime bans from both David Letterman and the ladies from "The View."

As a household name both in the context of the entertainment industry and the world of political advocacy, it's safe to say Griffin is no longer part of the 'D-list.'

She's a one-woman joke-telling powerhouse, with more than 10 critically acclaimed stand-up specials to her name; an accomplished actress, having been featured on everything from "Law & Order" to "Glee". If that weren't enough, Griffin helped organize a rally in Washington DC in March of 2010 to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Gsn Hires Amy Introcaso-Davis To Run Programming

Amy Introcaso-Davis, who spearheaded programming efforts in previous stints at Lifetime, Bravo and most recently Oxygen, has been tapped as Evp Programming at Game Show Network. She will be charged with developing and acquiring programming designed to boost the network’s core adult female demographic — something right up her ally based on her previous work at female-skewing networks. “Amy has an impressive track record of creating phenomenally successful and culturally relevant content,” said Gsn president and CEO David Goldhill, to whom she will report. “We’re particularly pleased to have her join Gsn in a year when we’ve substantially increased our original programming and acquired some exciting series to engage our audience.” Most recently, Introcaso-Davis was Svp Original Programming and Development at Oxygen Media, where she oversaw among other shows its summer series The Glee Project. Before that she was at Bravo, where she developed and executive produced Queer Eye For The Straight Guy,

Emmys 2011: 'Boardwalk Empire' dominance, 'Futurama' and other Creative Arts surprises

It's always fun to look at the Creative Arts Emmy winners to see if they hold any predictors of what might happen at the primetime Emmy ceremony. This year's Creative Arts ceremony, just over one week before the primetime awards are given out, is no exception, given some of the surprises that we saw Saturday (Sept. 10).

Whether these are any indication of what might happen next Sunday is anybody's guess. But it's sure as heck fun to speculate, right?

"Boardwalk Empire" dominates: It wasn't a big stretch to think that the academy voters were going to fall in love with "Boardwalk Empire." It's a sweeping period piece shot on an epic scale, with the pedigree of both Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter behind it. But given the love the academy has had for "Mad Men" during the last three years, it was a surprise to see "Boardwalk" dominate most of the technical awards for drama,

Can Kathy Griffin win third Emmy or will 'Deadliest Catch' or 'Hoarders' take reality race?

Can Kathy Griffin win third Emmy or will 'Deadliest Catch' or 'Hoarders' take reality race?
The last two winners of Best Reality Series, "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" and "Intervention," are absent from the race this year. Of the six nominees, only one -- "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" -- is a previous champ with back-to-back wins in 2007 and 2008. -Inserts:25- With "My Life on the D-List" wrapping up last year, its the final chance to honor this funny lady who is very serious about winning awards. In her episode submission, "Kathy with a Z," Griffin deftly adopts a real insider's approach, repeatedly referencing her past wins, Emmy judging panels, and her certitude that she'll reap a Guest Actress bid for her appearance on "Law  & Order: Special Victims Unit" (she didn't). She did get acting lessons from Liza Minnelli and a kiss from Mariska Hargitay. In between, she breaks down in her dressing room after a rough series of takes where she can't remember her l.

Watch: AfterElton Asks Kathy Griffin About the "Other" Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin

It's no secret that AfterElton.com is a huge fan of Kathy Griffin. Well, at least the Kathy Griffin we know from Bravo's Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List. Turns out there is another Kathy Griffin who lives in Georgia that we might not like so much. Turns out our Kathy and the "real" Kathy recently met on CBS' lame reality show Same Name. Thankfully, we managed to avoid seeing that, although turns out there might have been something interesting about it after all.

We'll let our Kathy explain the whole thing in this interview we did with her at the recent Television Critics Association Press Tour in L.A.

Btw, after that red carpet, I watched Kathy pose for pictures with Maggie, her mom, and while it's Kathy who is the big star, Kathy spent the whole time taking care of her mother and making sure

Emmys 2011: Why reality shows like 'The Real Housewives' and 'Teen Mom' will never get nominated

If you examine the relatively brief history of the Emmy reality show categories, you're going to notice something: Certain shows are missing.

Sure, the nominees and winners list are chock full of the classic reality shows that have become pop-culture phenomena over the past decade or so: "Survivor," "The Amazing Race," "American Idol," etc. But a vast segment of reality programming isn't there: what we like to call "trashy reality," shows that people either love to love or love to hate, but for some reason watch in large-enough numbers to put a lot of broadcast network shows to shame.

We're talking about shows like "The Real Housewives" series, and stuff like "Jersey Shore" and "Teen Mom." Heck, even more "highbrow" fare like "Flipping Out" and "Pawn Stars" can't seem to break into the two major reality categories. So, even though these shows represent the vast majority of reality TV out there,

Beyond Productions score Emmy nomination for Mythbusters

Sydney-based production company Beyond Productions have secured an Emmy nomination for program MythBusters in the Outstanding Reality Program category.

The nomination is the company’s third in as many years for the category. Last year it was beaten by Jamie’s Food Revolution and before that Intervention, a show about interventions.

“It’s a slightly funny category to be in there with Antiques Road Show, and Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List and Deadliest Catch.” John Luscombe, General Manager and Senior Vice President of Beyond Productions told Encore. “It’s a very diverse program slate, as oppose to best drama where it’s a bit more obvious what you’re up against.”

So, third time’s a charm? “You’d hope so but because it’s a broad category it’s hard to pick where people will vote. You’ve got Deadliest Catch from Discovery where one of the
