Although Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List starlette and Steve Wozniak, Apple computer founder,are no longer an item, Kathy Griffin says that she is ready to support him when he dons those black dancing shoes and hits the dance floor on this season of Dancing With The Stars.
“I will be watching, and will be riveted,” Kathy Griffin told Us Weekly at the 11th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills, California on Tuesday night. “If I am in town, I will definitely go support him.”
Kathy Griffin met Steve Wozniak in 2007 when he came to watch one of her stand-up comedyacts. The two became an item and fired up rumors of an engagement when Kathy Griffin appeared at the Emmy Awards that same year, wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring. The couple split last April but still remain friends. Steve Wozniak has even appeared in season 4 episodes ofKathy Griffin’s hit show My Life on the D-List.
“Well, we really were friends at the beginning, so it wasn’t that type of heartbreak situation for either of us — so it was really easy to just continue to be friends,” she told Us. “He will do great on Dancing With The Stars! I am excited to watch him.”
