Season five of Bravo’s Emmy winning series Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List begins with Kathy wondering if this is the year she gets off the D-List. After all, she is a two-time Emmy winner now. But a Grammy nod for her new comedy album may just be the catalyst Kathy needs to finally get her on the A-List. So Kathy, her assistant Tiffany and her tour manager Tom drop by the Grammy headquarters to see if she might be able to bribe the Grammy people into giving her the award. Things don’t go so well there, but Kathy doesn’t give up hope.
Later Kathy heads to Vegas to rub A-List elbows with the divine Miss M – that would be Bette Midler. Bette makes Kathy an offer she can’t refuse -- a cameo in her lavish stage show at Caesar’s Palace! Against the clock, Kathy has to quickly learn the choreography, improvise a costume and come up with a hilarious zinger for her part in the show.
After the show, Kathy and Bette share some one-on-one girl time in Miss M’s fabulous suite where they dine on fancy food, dish about Bette’s impressive career and make a phone call to A-Lister Stevie Nicks to get some advice on how to woo Grammy voters. Kathy then treats Bette to her side of Vegas, a decidedly more D List take on sin city.
