From New York Times best-selling author Kathy Griffin, an A-Z compendium of the celebrities she's met over the years and the jaw-dropping, charming, and sometimes bizarre anecdotes only she can tell about them.
Starting with Woody Allen and making pit stops with Demi Lovato, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Donald Trump, Kathy Griffin finally lifts the veil on her never-before-told run-ins with the famous and the infamous.
Love her but kinda disappointed as a lot of the run-ins have been talked about before. If you're a true fan of her stand up and have seen all of her specials and follow her closely, you might be disappointed in this.

This is my first Kathy book. Her stand up of course can't possibly be topped in book form, but this is a good read (listen). Tons of interesting, funny, entertaining stories about just about everyone.
The best part is that Kathy is the narrator on the audio book!

I love this comedian. She makes me laugh, and I truly believe that a major part of her successful delivery is that her vulnerability, her kindness, somehow comes through with the most "challenging" material.
This book is one of the most entertaining I've downloaded yet. And trust me, with the gawdAwful administration we have now, comedy is a major part of my self-care.
So that leads me to this plea: RELEASE KATHY NOW. Seriously, her being in Comedian Purgatory for a "tasteless" joke against a repugnant, tasteless potus (w/a very small P) is one of the most ridiculous happenings yet. Her relationship with Anderson Cooper by now must have had time to "heal," right, Anderson??? (Well, your last NYE tv special wasn't so great without her; we'd love seeing her again!) ... so PLEASE let her loose, forgive her for committing a pretend act that a majority of Americans fantasize about, and give Kathy Griffin room to breathe and make us all laugh again!!!
About the book: It is dishy, fun, KIND, insightful... and gave me the doses of laughter my psychologist has prescribed since the election of 2016.
Great book for the lover of all things celebs! Kathy is a fabulous storyteller! She really draws the listener into her story almost as if you were sitting there with her at the emmy's or even in Cher's bedroom! Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys pop culture or celeb history!
Love Kathy Griffin from "D" List series. Love her narration, she get excited telling her stories which draws you in.
I really enjoy Kathy Griffin’s comedy. I finished this book because I can’t not finish a book, but it was painful. Sure, I laughed out loud a couple times . . . but literally like two times. I almost stopped liking her because of this audiobook.
What made the experience of listening to Kathy Griffin's Celebrity Run-Ins the most enjoyable?
Her voice. I highly recommend this product. The sound quality is perfect.

Any additional comments?
I really liked this book as an audio book, which I stated in my title of the review. I have read and listened to it simultaneously. The one thing I will say is that if you are like myself and you buy the book with the audio book when they are available at the same time it says add narration for whatever the difference may be. Where you have a credit And you decide to use the credit towards it. Then, like my situation happened where I had to replace my Kindle, a ton of my books got deleted and Amazon had to resend them to me due to the fact that they were no longer adding the narration anymore to deal, therefore you are not able to retrieve the narration with the book anymore. Because when they offered it to when it came out and since he bought it when it came out doesn't me if you have to have it purchased for reset to you that feature gets disabled and that annoys me. So heads up if you have a device and it back Byers a lot because I'm disabled and I do utilize whisper sync etc.
As far as the stories go some of them were completely recycled and repackaged I do agree with some reviews but some of them definitely were ones I had not heard I think that it is her bee hive that is her box and her CDs etc. Of course looking to recognize it right away if it's retold and repackage thats good or bad because not everybody is going to listen to every single show and not everybody is going to read every single book or listen to every CD etc. so telling a story again is not necessarily a bad thing. If I was very surprised with. Literally when it got down to the x y z that she was able to literally pull names out of a hat of real people that had those last names that begin with those letters because some people may not know who Warren second was etc. The Michael Jackson story was really interesting and so wasn't some of the other few that I had never heard so I don't think a lot of it was really recycled. I jus think. Figure out about together of celebrities you've met. Some that have been heard at some that may have not been. Yes, some of them probably have been heard, but I really enjoyed this book. And I think that the audio book is fair to listen to, because it's almost like listening to a standup performance. Of hers because it's got in humor, as things are said.
She laughs while she is reading her own book which is a let down because what she wrote that she finds hysterical isn't that funny. I am a huge fan of hers, but I couldn't get past chapter 3.
Kathy Griffin exceeds my expectations every time.
I don’t care about the personal lives of celebrities, but I do love hearing about Kathy’s experiences.
