Dear Readers,There are at least five good reasons to Tip It! right now.1. My daughter Kathy put out her memoir last year, which was real nice except for the controversial parts. And it got to be a #1 New York Times bestseller. Congratulations, Kathleen! But now its my turn. Ive written my own book. I have things to say, too, without having to be all controversial like you were. Tip it!2. People recognize me on the street a lot now and come over, nicely, and say Maggie, you remind me of my own mother. And they say Maggie, I love your show--referring to Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List as my show.
Sometimes I correct them, I say, Oh, its not my show. But sometimes . . . I dont correct them. Its kind of fun being a star, isnt it Tip it!3. If you want to know a few things about my daughter Kathleen that only a mother could know (How the heck did she get this way? Did she always swear so much, for Chrissake?), you have come to the right book. Tip it!4. You know how a box of wine is never empty just because the spigot seems to have run dry (Theres always a little more if you just tip it!) This book is like that.
Theres so much in it--never-before-published Griffin family photos!, a love story (me and my dear departed husband Johnny), a whole guide to good living (including how to survive on whats in your purse), and a lot of funny business in this book from Kathleen (she made comments in this book- readers, I was not able to stop her!). So take this book and Tip It!5. And be sure to get the last drop out of living. Isnt it nice that Tip It acts as a toast Im 90 years old, and I think Tip It! even works pretty well as a motto for living to the fullest. So, Tip It! today.Yours,Maggie GriffinA funny thing happened on the way to Kathy Griffins sky-rocketing stardom.
The more she told stories about her mother, Maggie, in her stand-up act and on her Emmy-winning television show, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, the more popular her mother became. (At the mere mention of Maggie, a stadium full of fans will cheer, Tip It!
Tip It!)Shocked by Kathy, exasperated by Kathy, grudgingly amused by Kathy, and at the end of the day, always a loving mother to Kathy, Maggie Griffin has become the darling Gracie to Kathys George Burns, the wry Cher to Kathys Sonny Bono, the spry, sweet Roadrunner to Kathys Wile E. Coyote.
