'My Life on the D List' exclusive: 'I don't think it will come back,' says Kathy Griffin

“I don’t think it will come back, especially not as the same show it was,” Griffin said. “I would love to do a hybrid show, like a half-scripted kind of thing or something based on what I built on My Life on the D List and what I experience, but not a full-on reality show. I need to maybe give my mom a break so she doesn’t have to drink quite as much boxed wine. I could have someone play my mom because she’s a legend at this point.

“I do feel like it is a natural progression to take all the wacky things that happen to me,” Griffin added. “But [some things] can’t be on a reality show because of legal issues and clearances. I think it could be even funnier because it is still real [if there was] nothing that was off limits.”

A Bravo spokeswoman would only say that the cable network has yet to make a decision about another season of D List. Until then, Griffin says she’s keeping busy. “I am still doing my stand-up. I have some dates in L.A. coming up. I also recently hosted one of those VH1 diva specials. I did the one for the troops.”

My Life on the D List first premiered in 2005. The show was honored as an outstanding reality program by the Emmys in 2007 and 2008. (With reporting from Carrie Bell)
