Crazy Hollywood run-ins and TMI personal stories are on Kathy Griffin's menu for her talk show, Kathy, premiering Thursday. Oh, and a side of commentary from her "91-year-old alcoholic" mother Maggie; however, Kathy's keeping her new set a celebrity-free zone.
"No celebrities are invited," she tells Access Hollywood. You don't say? "I'm the person that can talk about the celebrity that is maybe in somebody else's green room but won't be in mine. We have to have a place where you can poke fun at pop culture."
Plus, it's an election year so chatty Kathy already has plenty of ammo lined up. "It's going to be fearless," she predicts about her weekly brouhaha. "I'm gonna let it rip. You know, I'm going to say the things that you're afraid to say. I'll do it for you. I'll say it." What makes her so willing to stick her nose out there? "I love other people's business!" she excitedly admits. "If I could call my show anything else but Kathy, I would call it I Love Other People's Business."
Psst: Here's a hint at what may be to come. "Today's obsessions...Wilson Phillips 'Still Holdin On' reality show & 'Couples Therapy' in VH1. Thoughts???" the feisty one recently tweeted.

Girrral! WE HAVE GOT TO TALK ABOUT SOME "VIRGIN"America*...an airline based out of SanFrancisco "owned" (but not really) by THE "SIR" Richard Branson! Out of ALL the STUPID NAMES that the company came up with to name their aircraft (not to mention)the HORRIFIC "reality" show they did called ~FLY GIRLS~!
I could NEVER understand why the company NEVER named an airplane: THE~FLYING~DICK! (in honor of it's "own-errr)
="Virgin"Americus= (Founding member Of The In-flight Department)
I don't get it. I thought the point of having a talk show is to have celebrities on. Who are the guests on the show??
