After what seemed like eternity, the bitch that is Kathy Griffin is back! In case you didn’t already know this, you surely have seen Kathy whoring herself out on national TV in recent days to promote the show. Anyone see her smack down with Elizabeth on The View? Priceless!

Anyway, onto the actual premiere of season six! Kathy is all about winning an Emmy this episode and to do it she will be playing a lesbian on Law & Order: SVU. Kathy is super excited for the role and she should be, afterall she hasn’t been on a ‘real’ show since X-Files. She admits she’s going to have to step up her game. Who does a girl turn to when she needs to step up her game? Well, besides her gays – her mom, of course. So, Kathy and Maggie run the lines until they get to a lesbian kissing scene that will take place between Kathy and Mariska Hargitay (hot!). Kathy starts trying to tongue her mom but Maggie isn’t having any of that. Kathy tells her that Dina Lohan would do it for Lindsay. Totally true!

Kathy heads to NYC the next day to begin prepping for SVU filming. She’s absolutely positive she’s going to earn an Emmy for this performance. To be sure of it, Kathy decides it’ll be better if she arrives on set in the character of “Babs” who she has decided is an over-the-top lesbian wearing a faux fur coat. She looks more like a cheap prostitute.

The set of Law & Order: SVU ends up being at a warehouse in New Jersey, not at Rockefeller Center as Kathy had hoped. Things only go downhill from here when SVU director kills the ensemble Kathy has created for “Babs.” He tells her that the character needs to be more down-to-earth. Whatever, Juan, we like our Kathy to be over-the-top not down-to-earth. Kathy realizes they don’t play around on the SVU set, so she better know her shit. She can’t believe they expect her to learn her lines AND act, not what she signed on for. Oh, Kathy how I’ve missed you! So, she turns to who else than Liza Minnelli for acting advice. You know this is going to be epic! Liza gives her serious acting advice which throws Kathy through a loop. Kathy is stunned that Liza actually “knows her shit.”

The next morning filming begins and Kathy is rushing to learn her lines at the hotel. She still doesn’t have it. She gets to set and runs her lines quickly with Chris Maloney, well until she starts trying to make out with him and then he runs off.

Finally it’s time for Kathy’s big debut scene on set and… she blanks. 1, 2, 3, 4… make that 11 takes later, she finally gets it, but then the director tells her to “bring it down a little.” Kathy can’t take the pressure and turns into a hot mess for a minute saying she feels stupid.

Later Kathy meets with Mariska in her trailer and tells her that she has a confession. Mariska was in a class that Kathy was a part of back in the day and they were playing the trust game where one person leans back and the other is supposed to catch them. Well, let’s just say Mariska hit the floor pretty hard and Kathy was to blame. Lucky for Kathy though, Mariska doesn’t remember anything about it.

After some other shoots, it’s now time for Kathy and Mariska’s big Emmy-award winning (at least in Kathy’s head) lesbian kiss scene. It’s nothing special but Kathy manages to pull it off in just one take. You go girl!

With official shooting wrapped, Kathy and Ice T make up a little SVU scene of their own that ends up with Tom dying of anal tearing. Oww, poor Tom!

Before Kathy leaves NYC back to LA, she drops in on Liza one last time to give her some gifts – a regifted Tiffany’s bowl and some Caranations. Leave it to Kathy to keep it classy. Liza entertains us with her signature laugh. Bitch is crazy!

Kathy flies back to LA and watches the Law & Order: SVU episode with her mom. She’s pissed to find out they cut the lesbian kiss scene, Maggie tells Kathy she must be a bad lesbian kisser. Ha!

That’s all for the premiere of My Life on the D-List but we have some exciting things this season like Kathy judging a kiddy beauty pageant (oh no!) and her dating Sarah Palin’s grandbaby daddy, Levi Johnston. Stay tuned, this is just the beginning!
