kathy griffinNow that she gets to go to the beach with Cher and is allowed to curse on CNN knowing full well they'll continue to call her every NYE to stand next to Anderson Cooper, Kathy Griffin has rightly come to the conclusion that her days on the D-list are over and has announced that her Emmy Award-winning show, My Life on the D-List, is done too. She's not going too far, as Bravo has already signed her on to do four comedy specials that will air throughout 2011.

Of the show's end, Griffin said "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. 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." In combination with her stand up Griffin's looking to get back onto a few sitcoms, one of which she describes as being "an improvised series," like Curb Your Enthusiasm, that involves "some characters from the D-List that you've come to love, and then maybe I'll have some actors play a couple other characters that are from my real life."

Also on Griffin's list to do is be the third female comedian to win a Grammy for a comedy album. But even if that doesn't happen, she's made it perfectly clear that her decision to leave the D-List behind isn't going to result in her disappearance. In fact, as long as Paula Abdul has her show and TLC keeps My Strange Addiction as part of its programming, she said she has no choice but to stay.
