Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin is finally as famous as she always wanted. In fact, we know her now by her first name.

'We don't need the Griffin anymore, honey,' she told the Huffington Post this week. 'It's 2012 - they know it's me.'

It took six seasons of 'My Life On The D-List' to do it but she's finally arrived. And now that she has the microphone she has something to say about it.

'Kathy' (which premieres on Thursday April 19) will be her one-hour weekly talk show giving her a national platform to talk about whatever's on her mind, from celebrity to politics.

Watch out Rush Limbaugh, Kirk Cameron, Scientology and her increasingly favorite target the Kardashians - you know it's going to be mandatory viewing.

'It's going to be, what's called in the industry, a shitstorm,' she told the Huffington Post. 'I just did a promotional photo shoot for Bravo, and I'm playing a little bit of a smoke-and-mirrors game with them, where I don't actually want them to know what the show is because I'm trying not to get canceled before my premiere. But they did a photo shoot with me with police caution tape around my mouth, so it's almost as if they're anticipating -they know what they're in for, as will the rest of America, Canada, parts of Mexico City, the UK and Finland.'

Griffin swears she's at the top of her game professionally and personally and that the new show will reflect that.

'That's the only way I know how to work - in the way that my act has never been this really tight, well-written monologue that's rehearsed and performed many times, my show will definitely have that same feel. Believe me, I'm not going to know what's going to come out of my mouth until the camera's rolling. That's the only way I know how to do it. It's going to definitely have the feeling of my live shows, which truly change every performance, because of things like Rush Limbaugh and his unexpected cohort Patricia Heaton.

'I, by the way, am not a slut hater. I enjoy sluts, I enjoy when I have the opportunity to be one. I embrace it. With the safety of some lube and a condom, I say everyone should just do whatever they can as long as no one's getting hurt. I don't know why she's piling on. ABC's going to have to re-name that show, The Middle, and just call it The Far Right.'
