Escape from the D-List
Kathy Griffin's gays gasped last month when they found out that Bravo had canceled her late-night talk show, Kathy -- the T.M.I. funny lady has been a fixture on the network since Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, which ran for six seasons. But fear not, fans. Though you'll be hard-pressed to find another talk-show host who'll allow a guest to motorboat her breasts, Griffin -- to quote her many stand-up specials -- has "balls of steel" and "she'll cut a bitch." Word has it Griffin and her BFF, silver fox Anderson Cooper, recently shot a test pilot for a show for CNN. And on May 18, she'll be emceeing An Evening with Women, a benefit for the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, produced by rocker Linda Perry, and featuring performances by Ozzy Osbourne, Natasha Bedingfield and Sia. In the meantime, make sure to catch tonight's performance. Part of Griffin's current stand-up tour, it will undoubtedly feature the fearless redhead revisiting her favorite topics: The Real Housewives franchise, celebrity screwups and her boozing mom. The Dolby Theatre, 6801 Hollywood Blvd., Hlywd.; Sat., May 4, 8 p.m.; $50-$110. (323) 308-6300, dolbytheatre.com.
