Video: Kathy Griffin tattles, 'I'll trade my mother for a third Emmy!'

June 3, 2009 |  7:25 am

After winning best reality program for the last two years, Kathy Griffin confesses to Gold Derby, "I want a third Emmy in the way most people want the stock market to rebound or Angelina Jolie wants one more kid. I have an Emmy-winning disorder, which I'm very open about. I want to win a third Emmy, and I want to wrestle it out of the dead hands of Ty Pennington. I'm sorry. I know he helps people. I'm sorry."

In our webcam chat, Kathy confesses that she'll even make a supreme sacrifice for another chunk of TV academy gold: "I am willing to trade one family member each year I win an Emmy. Now I'm going to go out on a limb here because all know that the real reason people watch 'My Life on the D-List' is because of my mother and no offense to her ... but this year I will trade my mother for a third Emmy. Now I've discussed it with her as well as her nurse, and she knows it's not personal. But I will do whatever it takes, and she and I have an agreement."
