Although it was previously reported by Bravo that Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List was renewed last month, Kathy told the Chicago Sun-Times that she still hasn’t signed a deal for a fifth season of the show.
She has won two Emmys for the reality series.
She is currently in contract negotiations with Bravo and is looking for more money from the company.
“You’d think that having won a second freakin’ Emmy would entitle me to a few more bucks… Hey, I’m just looking for tens more dollars from Bravo,” Griffin told the Sun-Times of her contract negotiations with network.
Although she is hoping to reach a deal with Bravo, she told the Sun-Times that she is also keeping her options open. “I am talking to another [broadcast] network and a cable network, so we’ll see,” Griffin told the paper. Bravo has aired the program since itsinception in 2005.
Bravo made a statement last month in response to a New York Post report stating that Griffin may be jumping ship along with Project Runway which is moving to Lifetime.
Bravo has been known in the past to announce a reality show’s renewal before reaching an agreement with its stars. Earlier this year, the network was reportedly involved in a similar situation with the cast of its The Real Housewives of New York City series.
