See if you can follow this TV feud, because it’s pretty funny. To promote its Emmy nomination, A&E bought out a print ad for “Hoarders” that used quotes from celebrity fan Kathy Griffin.
Not happy with her competitor’s tactic, Griffin has come out with her own Emmy promo ad that reads, "Quoting me in an Emmy ad? Bravo, Hoarders. BRAVO." Griffin is pictured amongst stacks of newspapers and magazines, a la “Hoarders.”
Griffin has often mentioned her love of the A&E show and has even brought it up in her Bravo stand-up specials. But quotes like, "Hoarders is so f--g fantastic!" are now coming back to bite her.
The comedian told The Hollywood Reporter why she should get the Emmy over “Hoarders”:
"I went to Wasilla, knocked on Sarah Palin's door with Levi Johnston, marched on Washington to repeal DADT ['Don't Ask, Don't Tell'], had a pelvic exam on camera, entered the underground world of toddler pageants (where I am still the reigning Little Miss Mature Lady Grand Supreme BTW) and got acting lessons from Liza f--g Minnelli," she said. "Hoard that, bitches!"
This is the first Emmy nomination for “Hoarders,” and Griffin’s sixth in the reality program category. “D-List” won the award in 2007 and 2008.
CBS' “Undercover Boss," Discovery's “Deadliest Catch” and “Mythbusters” and PBS' “Antiques Roadshow” are also nominated in the reality category.
Which show do you think deserves the Emmy?
