New deal includes 5th season, hosting duties
Kathy Griffin has inked a new one-year deal with Bravo that includes a fifth-season renewal of her Emmy-winning reality series as well as hosting duties for an awards show and two comedy specials.
Announcement ends speculation that the comedian might shop her skein to other networks.
Deal calls for Griffin to return as host of Bravo’s “A-List Awards,” a kudocast honoring those who’ve impacted beauty, food, fashion, design and pop culture.
Also in 2009, Griffin will shoot two hourlong standup specs for the cabler.
In January, she’ll start production on season five of “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List.” Skein has won the reality series Emmy the last two years.
