Alot of celebrities would kill to be on the A-List… But not Kathy Griffin! On the season premiere of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List on Bravo, Kathy gets a part in one of her favorite shows, Law & Order, and hopes it will catapult her to a third Emmy win. Maybe the person she picks to coach her can do the trick! Who is it? Keep reading to find out!
Kathy receives a script for a character named Babs Duffy on the popular hit series Law and Order on tonight’s Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List on Bravo.Â Kathy decides to call Liza Minnelli, whom she hardly knows, and ask her for an acting lesson. How random is that? As Kathy sits in a tiger striped chair in Liza’s Penthouse, they go over the lines, and Liza goes balls out as if she knew the lines for years, and Kathy is stunned! That makes her really worried about doing a good job, and it doesn’t help that her character has to kiss both the male and female stars of the show!
As the first day of filming arrives, she invites Chris Meloni into her dressing room to act out a scene, and of course it’s the kissing scene! She even asks him if he needs to take his shirt off for the scene and keeps trying to kiss him! After he leaves the room, they are ready for Kathy on set. A few minutes into it, they yell cut. Then they yell cut again. She goes blank and forgets her lines. Every time they yell cut, it bothers her more and more. After 11 takes, the director tells her to take it down a notch. She has the lines down now, but she is embarrassed and starts to cry because she feels stupid. These people are really serious, and this is role that could get her that next Emmy she really wants. Every Time they yell cut, she translate that as “you suck”.
The time comes for her big scene with the female star, Mariska Hargitay. Before they do the scene, Kathy feels she needs to come clean about dropping Mariska on her ass during an exercise when she was a student at an acting class and Kathy was the teacher. Mariska had no idea that this was even in Kathy’s book that she wrote. But lucky for Kathy, she does not remember it at all. But Kathy still apologizes and they hug it out! Now it is time for the scene where the two women kiss, and Kathy and she got it perfect after the first take! All that worrying was for nothing!
After the taping, she drops by Liza Minnelli’s penthouse to tell her thank you for the acting practice. She walks in with a Tiffany box that was re-gifted, and she has no idea what it is! Kathy tells her she should just re-gift it to someone else. Then she blows Liza away by telling her that she told the cast that she and Kathy made out! But when she gets home that night and watches the episode, she sees that her lesbian kiss with Mariska Hargitay was cut from the show! That was it , her big shining Emmy moment and now it is gone! Oh well, that’s life on the D-List!
