KATHY GRIFFIN – AND MOTHER MAGGIE – JOIN LARRY FRIDAY NIGHT!
Kathy Griffin may have spent most of her life reaching for the stars, but she's finding it far more rewarding poking fun at them.
From her teens till her mid-40s, Griffin's career was a roller coaster of sporadic successes, frequent rejections and protracted periods of limbo. But these days, the pint-sized comedian's professional life is as fiery as her flame-red coif.
At 49, Griffin has become a comedic brand built on savvy promotion, shock humor and notoriety from her Bravo celeb-centric reality series, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, back for a sixth season June 15 (9 ET/PT). D-List has spawned several Bravo specials; the latest, Kathy Griffin Does the Bible Belt, premieres tonight at 10 ET/PT, part of a night-long block of Griffin specials that sell well on DVD.
There are Grammy-nominated albums (For Your Consideration, Suckin' It for the Holidays), a best-selling book (2009's Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin is just out in paperback), film work (a voiceover in Shrek Forever After) and guest spots (Law & Order: SVU).
And she'll perform her stand-up act live at 100 venues by year's end.
"I like to use the term 'late bloomer,' " says Griffin, who lived with her parents until she was 28. "But I really thought there was something wrong with me."
To some, that sentiment still rings true. Her profane observational humor and shocking send-ups of celebrities led to a permanent ban at Harlem's Apollo Theater — she was unaware it was family night — and prolonged exiles from talk shows ranging from The View to The Tonight Show With JayLeno.
Cable's E! issued an apology in 2005 after Griffin, co-hosting a red-carpet event, told viewers that actress Dakota Fanning, then 10, was in rehab. Griffin's 2007 Emmy acceptance speech (for the first of her two reality-show wins for D-List) included a satirical reference to Jesus that outraged religious leaders. And dropping the F-bomb and crude remarks while co-hosting CNN's 2010 New Year's Eve show with Anderson Cooper has made that gig's future questionable.

Editor's Note: Kathy Griffin sits in for Larry tonight! Among her guests: Levi Johnston, Joan Rivers, and the stars from TLC's "Toddlers and Tiaras."
Odd couple alert!
Kathy Griffin brought Levi Johnston, the 19-year-old father of Bristol Palin's baby, as her date to Sunday's Teen Choice Awards in Universal City, Calif.
Griffin, 48, joked that the two have been an item for some time.
"Long-distance relationships are not easy, especially when he's in his igloo and I'm in my Hollywood tower," she said.
Johnston – who was in town for a Vanity Fair photo shoot – was less vocal about being Griffin's date.
"I just, you know, look at her, shut up and do what I'm told," he said when asked about being her date.
Griffin said she has yet to visit Johnston in his native Alaska, but has been there before.
"I have played Alaska, but so nowhere near where he grew up," said the Bravo reality star, who was not filming her carpet walk with Johnston for her My Life on the D-List show. "I played a Rosie [O'Donnell] lesbian cruise there and I'm pretty sure Levi wasn't on that cruise. I mean, I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure Levi is not kicking it with the lesbian cruises."
Johnston told E! News he'd even take Griffin hunting if she visited. He also added that 7-month-old son Tripp is "doing really good."
