For over 30 years as a stand-up comedian, Kathy Griffin has been telling the world about her awkward encounters with A-list stars; she once petted Celine Dion’s hair as if she were a dog, sent a half-eaten salad to Lindsay Lohan, and bum-rushed Barbara Walters in a bathroom. Now, the comedian is finally putting her stories down on paper as she preps for the release of her new book, Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins.

The follow-up to her No. 1 New York Times best selling memoir, 2009’s Official Book Club Selection, Griffin’s new book serves as an A-Z index of her “outrageous, charming, and sometimes bizarre” celebrity experiences, according to a press release.


Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins is set to feature the Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian’s take on meeting everyone from Woody Allen, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jane Fonda, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Christina Aguilera to the time Donald Trump drove her and Liza Minelli around in a golf cart.

In addition to releasing the book, Griffin has several live stand-up performances scheduled in cities around the country between now and April 2017.

Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins hits stores Tuesday, Nov. 22.
