It's a war of the Emmy-winning comediennes when Kathy Griffin guest stars on Kirstie Alley's upcoming TV Land series.
Griffin will play herself on an episode of "Kirstie," TheWrap has learned.
Playing herself, Griffin will trigger some insecurity issues when she considers moving into an apartment across from Maddie (Alley) and the paparazzi follow. Fearing she'll have to play second fiddle to the celebrity in her own building, Maddie goes to great (and ridiculous) lengths to keep Griffin from moving in.
Griffin's TV credits include numerous standup specials and two seasons of late-night talk show "Kathy." She also won two Emmys for her Bravo reality series, "My Life on the D-List," starred on Brooke Shields' NBC sitcom "Suddenly Susan," and has several guest-starring credits.
She joins previously announced Season 1 guest stars John Travolta, Jason Alexander, George Wendt, Cloris Leachman, Kristin Chenoweth and Kristen Johnston.
On the sitcom premiering Wednesday, Dec. 4, Alley plays Broadway star Maddie Banks, whose life gets turned upside down when the son she gave up for adoption re-enters her life.
Griffin is represented by WME and Edelstein, Laird & Sobel.
