Kathy Griffin's Bravo talk show to premiere in April

Kathy Griffin's talk show will premiere April 19 on Bravo
Kathy Griffin must be getting impatient: Snooki's pregnant (and engaged!) and Angelina Jolie's leg is still walking around. So at long last, Bravo has given the flame-haired comedian talk show an April 19 premiere date.

Griffin, already a staple on the network with numerous comedy specials and her former reality show "My Life on the D-List," will join Andy Cohen in the network's talk show circuit with "Kathy." The weekly pop culture gab-fest will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. And the gossip maven won't discriminate with her ego deflation: celebrities, politicians,  co-workers, friends -- even her scene-stealing mother Maggie -- can expect to get lampooned.

“Look, I've called Academy Award winners a-holes and shown the world my awesome 51-year-old boobs, so I asked myself, what else is there to do,” Griffin said in a statement.  “I'm a true original. A snowflake! Time for a talk show, of course! So I called Bravo and clearly, they wanted to see pop culture get bent over by me, so here we go!  It WILL hurt, America, but in a good way, I promise.  Weeee!!!!”
