THE JIG IS UP
Since we revealed that Kathy Griffin was PRETENDING to reconcile with her exhusband Matt Moline on her reality TV show My Life on the D-List , we’ve learned a LOT more! Way more than Kathy is likely to reveal on Larry King! Let’s backtrack. Last September while filming season one, Kathy learned from her bank that SOMEONE had been using her ATM card and draining one of her bank accounts.Money is VERY important to Kathy – friends consider her frugal. An investigation proved it was her own husband Matt. He had been quietly withdrawing $500 – the limit – every day for many months. What was Matt’s problem – was it drugs? Another woman? Gambling? None of the above. Kathy was so upset she sent the D-List cameras home and filed for divorce. “She’s not quite the victim she appears to be” revealed an insider. Apparently when Kathy married Matt she told him “I will never support you – you have to pay half the bills.”
Matt found himself caught up in Kathy’s busy schedule – she hates to travel alone and wanted him with her at all times. He had no time to run his computer business and couldn’t earn enough money to pay his bills. (When they went out to dinner, Kathy expected HIM to pay.) So he started robbing Peter to pay Paul. He took the money from Kathy and paid his bills and spent the rest on her!
The network wanted her married on the show and that’s why Matt returned for season two. It was all ACTING – they pretended everything was okay. Insiders feel the reason Kathy recently revealed Matt’s thievery was to boost her show RATINGS. He is described as “humiliated – a broken man.” Ironically Kathy hopes they can remain friends! It’s a real soap opera and we hope there’s a happy ending for both. Meanwhile, we’re not going to miss an episode of D-List.
