Kathy Griffin's talk show canceled by Bravo
Kathy Griffin's talk show adventure is over -- for now.
The 52-year-old television personality scored her own prime time talk show, "Kathy," in January 2012. On April 6, it was announced that Bravo was putting an end to the stand-up comedian's show.
According to E! News, Griffin broke the news during a performance in Cincinnati on Friday, telling the audience that Bravo executives informed her on Thursday, April 4 that they planned on "pulling the plug" on the show.
The comedienne, who is known for her signature red hair and outlandish comments, took to Twitter to comment on the reports, posting: "Sad but tru. Appreciate your kind words, PH," in response to Perez Hilton's tweet regarding the show's cancelation.
"Kathy" premiered in the spring and featured the comedienne ranting about headlines and tabloid gossip, stand-up routines, celebrity interviews and taped segments.
While the news is grim for the Bravo talk show, according to a report by Deadline, things may be looking up for Griffin. The entertainment outlet claims that she and journalist Anderson Cooper are gearing up to take part in a humorous, hour-long project for CNN. The report also claims that the show would be headed by the new president of CNN Worldwide, Jeff Zucker.
The actress won two Emmy awards for her long-running series "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," which originally aired in 2005. The show features Griffin poking fun at celebrities, as well as her relationships with staffers Jessica, Tiffany and Tom.
