Kathy Griffin's celebrity trashing (and cursing) has gotten her famously "banned" from a whole host of popular TV talk shows.
Tonight, the ban from "The Late Show with David Letterman" is lifted. Griffin, star of Bravo's "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," will appear as Dave's guest tonight, and you better believe the alleged ban will come up. She last appeared on his show on July 24, 1997.
Kathy told Larry King in 2006 that she thinks she was banned from Letterman's show for cursing, but that perhaps she is also just "not his cup of tea."
She told "W" magazine that same year, "I swore on his show, and he's a [bleeping] old lady."
Griffin also claims to have been banned from appearing on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Live with Regis and Kelly," "Ellen," and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien." Griffin has been banned and re-banned from "The View." She discussed the reasons for all those bans in her interview with Larry King.
"The Late Show with David Letterman" airs tonight on CBS at 11:35pm.
