the cheese stands alone

The second season of Kathy Griffin's reality show, "My Life on the D-List" premieres tonight. I set the TiVo for it as soon as it showed up in the listings. I also recorded the season 2 preview that Bravo ran last week and both her stand-up specials. I think she's funny and I enjoy her biting stories about celebrities. My wife and kids sometimes watch with me, which apparently makes me very unusual. The following quote from a Newsweek article about Kathy explains why:
Her days of being the darling of only the gay subculture are over, too. She's packing 2,500-seat theaters nationwide. These days, the only group not in her audiences is white, middle-aged straight men. "It's the one demographic I cannot crack," she says. "I have nothing to say to them. They don't care that Gwyneth Paltrow named her kid Apple. They're not even sure that Gwyneth Paltrow is a different person than Nicole Kidman."
If this blog has proven anything, it's that I'm the one WMASM who does care.

Frank, thanks for giving a shout out to Kathy in your blog. I think she's a comedic genius and I'm just as obsessed with her reality show as I am with her stand-up specials, LOL. I saw her "Strong Black Woman" tour in Louisville (though I sadly missed the delightful 'key to the city' debacle) and she was fabulous. I also saw her on the Today Show on Tuesday, asking Al Roker why they would let a "nutbag" like Ann Coulter on the show. Why, indeed Kathy.
