Kathy Griffin’s ‘Life on the D-List’ is Over and Also, Mila Kunis is Perfect


First the bad news: Kathy G. officially confirmed that My Life on the D-List is dunzo.

“Reality is great, but I really didn’t set out to be a reality star. So now it’s time to spread my wings and show that I’m a little different than Kate Gosselin. I’m not saying better but maybe separate myself from the pack a little bit.”

Now the good news: Bravo has booked her for an unprecedented four stand up specials for 2011, the first of which will tape this Feb.

Much like Lady Gaga, Kathy is one of our greatest allies, using My Life on the D-List as an amazing platform to advocate for the gay community. She has dedicated entire episodes to Prop 8 and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and featured an incredible number of gay & gay-adjacent guest stars on the regular including Johnny Weir, Rosie O’Donnell, Margaret Cho, Melissa Etheridge, Tammy Lynn Michaels, Kristin Chenoweth, and Suze Orman.

What was your fave D-List episode? RIP.  (@people)


Are you all as obsessed with Black Swan as we are? Well, our brand new wife Mila Kunis completed a delightful interview with The Advocate to celebrate our union. Obvs she knew every homogay’s head would explode upon seeing her in Black Swan

“Well, we didn’t have Cher in our movie, but we figured gay people would still be into it. I grew up in West Hollywood, in the heart of the gay community, so I’ve always been attuned with the gays. My first gay friend came out in junior high, but I always gravitated toward gay people. I never thought it was weird to see two guys holding hands and making out. It wasn’t until I was about 19 when I realized that the whole world didn’t share the same views as I did.”

And just to confirm her character’s non-lesbianism:

“Not at all. I just saw her as a free spirit living her 20s in New York City.”



Ramin Setoodeh took his lazy slipshod arguments on the road and brought along Howard Bargman, the Hollywood publicist responsible for the coming out-a-palooza of Chely Wright, Meredith Baxter and Chaz Bono (among many others). In the second segment (which isn’t online yet – stay tuned) Bragman comments that while there aren’t any out movie stars, Amber Heard may be the great gay hope with two big movies (co-starring Johnny Depp and Nicolas Cage) out this year. Neither one really has much of a point but Joy Behar sure seems entertained by their theories.

Our hopes and dreams for Lindsay and Samantha are about to collide because it looks like LiLo is moving right next door to Sam, who is none too pleased. Dawson Cryface. That’s an exes worst nightmare right there. Would you ever move to the same block as your ex? Or, is this Lindsay’s elaborate plan to win Sam back? I’ll stop analyzing. (@radaronline)

Now that you know who the hell she is, you might appreciate the trailer for her new movie, The Ward.

      • yeah i liked her, but then i started seeing some of the stuff she was saying and i was like wow—team portman card revoked.

        i also had no idea mila was dating mackaulay culkin…wtf was up with that??

        • I find it ~interesting~ that just as all this buzz for Black Swan is around…BAM! Natalie is engaged and pregnant – to the choreographer of that film no less. It just all seems to PR fairy-tale-ish…actress falls in love with choreographer of her film, gets rave reviews for her performance, buzz, and now they are engaged and she’s pregnant…just before the Oscars. About the interviews, I stopped reading her interviews a few years ago, simply because it bores me that every interview has two things: 1) Her talking about Harvard which was years ago and b)Producers, co-stars etc gushing about how smart and talented she is. That happens with every actor of course and I’m not saying her being educated is a bad thing it just seems like she feels she needs to remind us about it a lot.

          About Lindsay and Sam, I’m sure it was a coordinated move. Their house numbers are seven and nine which are their respective favourite numbers (hence Lohan’s brand name being those two numbers (on Ellen) ‘My favourite number and…*coyly* someone else’s favourite number’). Also, I giggled at the moving trucks and boxes being of course ‘U-Haul’ ones…Ahh lesbians… ;)

    • Yeah, Natalie and I were never tight, but she lost me completely when she signed the Polanski petition. Everything since then has just confirmed the wankiness.

      However, I will never stop loving the V for Vendetta movie, even though it makes Alan Moore sad.

  1. I’m so sad that I’m being disappointed by Natalie Portman. It’s like finding out Santa isn’t real. I’ve loved and looked up to her for so long but now she’s kind of turning out to look like an asshole. :[ Anyway, I love Mila…like a lot…super hottie! Also, Lindsey what are you doing?!?!

  2. I really love that picture of Lindsay and who I presume is SamRo, for no other reason than that they look…happy.

    Really genuinely *I’m with my girlfriend whom I love* happy.

  3. i watched the season premiere of “pretty little liars” with my roommates, it was the first episode i had ever seen. IT WILL NOT BE MY LAST. i would make scrambled eggs and tea in the morning for every girl on that show. ohhhhh my goodness.

  4. Aww Linds! I’m totally rooting for you, boo, but moving from the Betty Ford Center to Stalkerville is not a good look.

  5. First, Mila Kunis is absolutely wonderful (see her and Zoe Saldana together in After Sex). Kathy Griffin will be just fine, and so will everyone, without the show. I’m sure her upcoming projects will be just as wonderful. I have no words regarding Lindsay Lohan.

  6. my number one feeling is, why did natalie portman do that movie with ashton kutcher.

    look at your life. look at your choices.

  7. Mila is cool as hell
    and hot as hell…wait uhh

    I was hoping that Lindsay moving story would turn out to be false.

  8. Not to spoil anything, but that shot of Mila with the thighs was ahhhh-mazing.

    …I was going to write something else, but that memory killed my brain. Again. In the best way possible.

  9. I fucking hate Kathy Griffin. I am glad her show is over, and it’s not because she “decided” to end it it’s because it failed.
    Her behavior is absolutely despicable, how can we laud someone that makes her life earnings off of insulting and bullying others? That’s what she is, a 52 year old bully. As LGBT, bullying and hate is one of our greatest opponents, we should know better.
    At some point we have to ask ourselves, do we really need to worship every single straight person that “supports” LGBT and our cause? Sometimes, there are people that simply do not have the right or background to do such things, and we do not need them. Kathy Griffin is one of them.
    She is the trashiest woman I have ever seen, far, far from classy. I do not understand why she is allowed to be in public, let alone “e-list famous.” Sometimes while living in this world, especially America, I find there is no end to life’s ability to disgust me in new ways.
