Kathy Griffin

A Lifetime spokesman assures Blink there is absolutely no truth to Friday’s rampant Internet rumors that Emmy-winning D-lister Kathy Griffin, following the lead of “Project Runway,” would also be defecting from longtime home Bravo and taking her act to the women’s network. Ms. Griffin, who just won a second Emmy for reality program for her “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List,” was first reported to be mulling such a move in Friday’s New York Post, which cited a “well-placed source” as saying Ms. Griffin was being lured to the Lifetime fold by the promise of a late-night talk show, among other goodies. The news, valid or not, hit the Web like paparazzi at an A-list opening, though it came as something of a shock to Bravo, which termed it “surprising, since we’ve picked her up for another season of her series.”
