I would like to thank the academy, who are like family to me. Let's face it: Love and family come and go, but Emmys are forever. Thank you for this Emmy for My Life on the D-List, where I got the first televised public pap smear (take that, Steve Buscemi!), knocked on Sarah Palin's door with Levi Johnston (that's gotta hurt, Randy Jackson!) and marched to help repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell (in your face, cast of Bones!). And I finally beat out The Kennedy Center Honors for my stand-up special Kathy Griffin: 50 and Not Pregnant, which, by the way, is way funnier than any episode of Game of Thrones.

The reality star will perform four stand-up comedy specials for the network this year.

Kathy Griffin is no longer on the D List.

Bravo confirmed Wednesday that the show's sixth season, which aired last summer, was the show's final installment. Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List has won two Emmys and is nominated for a Producers Guild of America Award.

"It was a really tough decision because I think of the D-List as pretty much my baby for the last six seasons, and I also think it was really time to stop doing it," Griffin told People. "Reality is great, but I really didn't set out to be a reality star. So now it's time to spread my wings and show that I'm a little different than Kate Gosselin."

Meanwhile, Bravo said Wednesday that it has ordered four stand-up comedy specials starring Griffin. One new hourlong special will air quarterly this year.

Griffin has previously performed eight original comedy specials for Bravo.
