Bravo issued a press release Wednesday (Jan. 5) announcing four comedy specials starring Kathy Griffin for 2011, but it buried the lead — or rather, didn’t mention it at all: Griffin has decided to walk away from her reality show “My Life on the D-List.”
The show’s sixth season, which aired last summer, was its last, Griffin says.
“It was a really tough decision, because I think of the ‘D-List’ as pretty much my baby for the last six seasons, and I also think it was really time to stop doing it,” Griffin tells People. “Reality is great, but I really didn’t set out to be a reality star. So now it’s time to spread my wings and show that I’m a little different than Kate Gosselin.
“I’m not saying better, but maybe separate myself from the pack a little bit.”
The four comedy specials will air quarterly on Bravo this year. The first will tape in Milwaukee in February.
