Can you believe we’re already at the end of another season? This week is the season finale of Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List and like much of this season it is focused on Maggie. Kathy pulls out all the stops to make Maggie the popular kid in her new senior citizen condo building.

After Kathy’s f-bomb on Anderson Cooper, Maggie has had enough of her filthy language and crazy stunts. Maggie has to apologize to all of her friends for Kathy’s behavior on Facebook FacePlace, as she calls it. Kathy realizes that she may have pushed things a bit far this time. As much as she jokes, we all know Kathy adores her mom. So, what’s a crazy, famewhoring comedian with d-list celebrity connections to do to make things right with her mom? Put on the ultimate d-list variety show for her mom’s friends and neighbors, of course.

Like Kathy always does, she calls on her gays to help put on the best damn d-list variety show ever. Seth Rudetsky, a Broadway Musical Director, will be playing piano and helps Kathy kidnap, err I mean, persuade some other Broadway stars to take part too. Laura Bell Bundy, who plays in Legally Blonde the Musical, will be singing in the variety show and (my favorite!) Kristin Chenoweth (“Glee”) comes to give Kathy some encouragement. Kathy and Kristin did a hilarious skit where Kristin is singing “Singing in the Rain” but it looks like Kathy is singing it. Kristin just cracks me up in every role she plays.

Before they can put on a show they need a venue and Kathy puts Tom in charge of finding the perfect theatre. Leave it to Tom to screw that one up! He ends up booking the venue without really looking at it first. When he, Kathy and Tiffany go to check it out – after it’s already booked – they find the place is a bit run down and on the smaller side. The ‘star’ dressing room is packed full of junk, Tiffany jokes that it looks like an episode of Hoarders. They have their work cut out for them to make the place look good, but by the day of the show they do.

After getting some of the major stars lined up for the show and the disastrous venue taken care of; Kathy, Tom, Tiffany and Maggie hold auditions for what Kathy calls the “Ancient American Idol” segment. This part is made up of some of the seniors that live in Maggie’s building and a few are actually pretty talented. Maggie really seems to like one of the men, she can’t stop smiling and has a sparkle in her eye. Maybe next season we’ll see Maggie shacking up with this guy, wouldn’t that be interesting.

Onto the day of the variety show, Tom meets Rip Taylor, king of confetti/comedian, who he has a super huge 5th grade crush on. Tom ends up being the lucky one to cut confetti for Rip’s show. The big star of the night, Cloris Leachman, is running late and sending Kathy into a bit of a frenzy. Kathy says this show may be the most important of her life because she wonders, “When am I going to get to do something like this for my mom again?” Kathy is a little teary-eyed already and the show hasn’t even begun yet.

Kathy kicks off the show prepping the crowd of senior citizens for the craziness that is about to go down. Rip Taylor is the first act and he immediately starts tossing around his confetti. Kathy just stands there like the diva she is as the confetti falls around her. Rip puts on a pretty funny show followed by In Pink, which is a singing group made up of gay former soldiers. After the “Ancient American Idol” talent finishes their performances, it’s time for Laura Bell Bundy, who does an amazing job singing “Chicago.”

Cloris Leachman finally arrives just before it’s her time to go on. She seems a bit out of it, or as Kathy puts it, ‘Cloris is there physically but her mind her elsewhere.’ Cloris should be getting ready for the show but instead she stretches out on a chaise lounge. Kathy has someone do Cloris’s makeup really quick. Kathy ends up having to stall for Cloris to get her shit together. Cloris finally makes her way to the stage after even more stalling to practice her song. She sings “I Love A Piano” and does a great job at it, especially considering she’s 84 years old. The crowd loves her!

After Cloris’s performance, it’s time for Kathy to wrap up the show but she has one more surprise for her mom. She sings her own version of “You Made Me Love You (I Didn’t Want to Do It)” with her own lyrics about her life and her mom. It’s Kathy’s unique way of saying sorry and love you to her mom while still being funny. As Kathy sings we take a look back at some clips from this season. It’s a fun and touching way to the end the season on a high note. The episode ends with Maggie saying she’ll always remember this and she has tears in her eyes. Aww!

That’s a wrap for season 6 of D-List. What’d you think of this season? Did you love seeing Maggie more?
