1. She Was Banned From Appearing On Several TV Shows
Although some talk show hosts welcome her humor on their programs such as Craig Kilborn, Bill Maher and Howard Stern (who she credits with giving her a “straight fanbase”), Griffin has claimed to be banned from appearing on several TV shows including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The View. She got re-banned from The View because of a joke she made about Barbara Walters. She says Ellen’s producers told her they cannot have her on “trashing celebrities”,but she appeared as a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on September 11, 2007. One of the most notable controversies occurred when she made a joke during a 2005 E! televised event that the child actress Dakota Fanning, then age 11, had entered drrug rehabilitation. This incident got Griffin fired from hosting duties on E!’s red-carpet award show coverage. Nevertheless, E! purchased rights to air My Life on the D-List for its British channel, a fact she noted in an episode of season 3.
