So Long, Farewell!

| Filed under: TV NewsExclusives!Kathy Griffin

solong.jpg

Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Kathy Griffin's long-time assistant and My Life on the D-List co-star, Jessica Zajicek, has quit.

And, "it's not pretty," an insider tells us.

The split happened earlier this month.

Unfortunately, her Bravo show is not currently under production, so we'll miss out on the drama on TV!

"Jessica had just had enough of Kathy," says our insider. "She put up with her for several years. She couldn't take it anymore."

Sad to see her go. Jessica was a huge part of Kathy's show!

    I love Kathy and I think I would pay her to work for her! Well I guess Jessica gets to move up the food chain.

    This season of My Life on the D-List has been the best season by far! I giggle like a fool the whole way through.

    Jessica has no personality. I don't get why people are upset? She is so blah. She has the personality of a wet rag. Why do people think she is funny she barely even speaks. I am glad that she is gone. Although I love Kathy, this season sucks. Get somebody with a little more life in them as your assistant Kathy.

    Jessica turned into a bitch this season! I bet the "insider" was Kathy Griffin herself ! lol! i hope it was!

    204

    NOOO! Jessica was so great! :[

    Maybe Kathy should have a reality show like Andy Dick had to find a new assistant. Which ever one gets her a Hollywood Star gets a job :]

    205

    Can I say how glad I am that Jessica is gone. WTF did she do anyway? She walks around like she had a labotomy with monotone and almost mind numbing speech. The only time this girl got excited was when there was alcohol involved. For Christ sakes Kathy had to hire this lazy ass an assistant! Who the hell does that? I watch the show reg and am going to see Kathy when she performs here in my town. I was really annoyed when The Woz sold more shirts than Jessica and Jessica was about to throw down with Kathy and The Woz. WTF? How disrespectful that display was. It really should be Jessica kissing Kathy's feet. How lucky to have a job these days period…I say good riddance and have fun on the unemployment line!

    206

    Kathy's mom is the best part of the show. Jessica always looked happy on all the vacations and she didn't turn down the Blackberry. Even on the D list you will get taken advantage of.



  7. 207

    KATHY GRIFFIN IS FUNNY, BUT I WOULD HATE TO WORK FOR HER TOO. SHE IS AN ATTENTION WHORE. "LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME EVERYONE, LAUGH AT ME, I LOVE THE GAYS" HAHA

  8. Jessi says – reply to this


    208

    Jessica was BORING. She was the worst part of the show. It always looked like she was smelling shit. Kathy even got her an assistant. What a bitch. Don't let the door hit ya dumb ass.

  9. Those says – reply to this


    209

    Jessica had a crappy attitude for a job that took her all over the world, and put her ugly ass on tv. Kathy will be better off without this disrespectful ugly bitch.

    Kathy,
    I know you read this web page. You are a publicity whore and I adore you.
    You need people promoting the KG "Brand". I could run circles around all three assistants. Hire some gays. Your mother is wonderful but the balance of your cast needs to be replaced.
    Hugs!

    212

    oh who cares all she did was laugh on the show. it was kinda annoying. she did not really do anything.

  13. no! says – reply to this


    213

    This can't be true… I love her show - and I've never seen Jessica having a hard time with Kathy - she always seems to be enjoying herself!! I'll believe it when I see it! If anyone would quit, I would think it would be Tom, and that would be sad, cause the stuff they do to him is a riot! And the best part, he doesn't seem to care - and seems to have fun with it!

  14. Kelse says – reply to this


    214

    What?!! I can't believe this! Jessica always seems to have so much fun with Kathy! Please bring more Perez!

  17. fuck1 says – reply to this


    217

    FUCK YOU COCKSUCKER JESSICA! No one liked you anyway you bit twat! Kathy's show, pure and simple. Enjoy your stint on Flava of Love, bitch!

  18. Kyla says – reply to this


    218

    Well given the large amount of info. on this story, I can't say much.

    We all know reality television can get cut and spliced to form more enteraining content, so who knows what these two are really like and what really happened between them. All I know is the show really brought out the neediness of Kathy, she can 't do anything for herself and depends on two other ladies to do all her grunt work for her. I'd quit too, I couldn't handle the ego that drips off Kathy.

    "Jessicaaaaaaaaaaaa!"

  19. James says – reply to this

    I LOVE YOU KATHY!

    I'm glad she is gone, I didn't like her - she had some kind of attitude - she anger Kathy few times - glad she is gone!!!

  21. David says – reply to this


    221

    I LOVE Kathy!

    Why would Jessica want to quit? She always seem so happy on the Bravo show and enjoys her job! Who wouldn't want to work for Kathy? She's a great boss!

  22. Jesse says – reply to this


    222

    wont make a difference, Kathy is the star of that show!

    Is every Hollywood personality a fake and a real f*cking a*shole in real life???

  24. Xande says – reply to this


    224

    Too bad, the other assistants are sooooooooooooo ANNOYING, they should have quit! Ditch the other two also, Kathy on her own is way funnier!

    I did like Jessica though, very layed back:)



  25. 225

    She is easily replaceable, hell anyone can sit there and laugh at Kathy. She really seemed like she enjoyed her job on her free trip to Bora Bora! Unless Kathy was tying her up and beating her ass, she had a pretty good gig. don't let the door hit you in the ass.

  26. tasha says – reply to this


    226

    kathy would probably be the coolest bitch to work for in hollywood…the point of her show and her personality is that she doesn't take herself seriously…she doesn't think she's entitled to shit, she isn't high and mighty…could you imagine working for someone who takes themselves seriously? someone who has a real stick up their ass? HEY PAULA anyone? just sayin…

  27. lanni says – reply to this


    227

    ummmm….need the INFO!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing on her official website. Perez you always get everything first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. forme says – reply to this


    228

    mmm interesting!!! Kathy seems ok to work for, but then again we are only seeing her public image, pershaps she's "Madonna like" behind the scenes! one never knows, Kathy does seem very "Hollywood" so she's probably fake, still funny though, Jessica was ok, but not that big of a part of the show, she can be replaced w/out issue.

    229

    aww thats sad, i LOVED jessica, man that sucks, really bad!!!!!!!!!, what could of kathy done?

  30. Bobo says – reply to this


    230

    Jessica sucked. Seemed to be a crappy assistant, more like a child than anything. AND, she seemed to be jealous of Kathy and everything she worked hard to earn.

  31. srsly says – reply to this


    231

    what the hell did she have to put up with? kathy just took all of them to bora bora with her. i don't think kathy was wielding a whip at her or anything. very weird. maybe she just wanted a change of pace. has anyone tried to confirm this through jessica's email or contact info?

    JESSICA ALWAYS ACTED LIKE A STICK IN THE MUD, NO PERSONALITY AND I HATE WHEN HER AND TIFFANY WOULD SIT AROUND AND GIGGLE ALL THE TIME.

  35. this says – reply to this


    235

    Jessica (paid employee and dime a dozen assistant) is 'fed up' with kathy Griffin? If this isnt one of KG's publicity stunts - lets examine the backwards logic here.

    Who is Jessica? A tatted up hangeron who lucked out getting a good job for good money - more than someone with a cosmetology backround would ever hope to earn - is 'fed up'. Whats the news? Jessicas are a dime a dozen in Hollywood. Be grateful for all the exposure she got while working for KG - Let's guess - Jessica is now going to have 'some projects' 'under development'

    Hollywood, a toilet filed with shit.

    Kathy is an ugly (yet funny) kunt trying to be pretty.

    I would never work for her. She eats ass.

  44. Novel says – reply to this


    244

    Kathy is a monster. I have worked for her kind before and suffice it to say I saw this one coming a mile off. Jessica's vivaciousness and youthful desire to have some adventures probably allowed her the patience to overstay that death sentence at Kathy's. Kathy has driven off everyone - no surprise she drove off Jessica. Good news is, she can now get a job anywhere, since those in the know understand how much crap she had to swallow to work for Kathy. You go Jess!

  45. Good says – reply to this


    245

    I never really liked that girl. Kathy had a good hearted sarcastic humor and Jessica was so pessimistic and rude and thought it was funny. She would talk about Kathy in rude ways like they were friends and Kathy wasn't her BOSS. She really needed to learn her place. Good Luck to her finding another celebrity that will treat her half as good as Kathy. So what?!? You had to do the "bitch" work. That's what you signed up for!

    kathy is like a friend of mind i would never work for she is always on what is she like in real life maybe she needs reality rehab

    248

    Oh well ! it's not like kathy can't survive without her. i'm sure not just me who will die to become new kathy's assistant. Bye Bye fame for jessica since u are not on the show anymore ur 15 mins is up and ppl will forget u in a couple day suck for her lol

  52. efab says – reply to this


    252

    hmm… i would not doubt that she moved on, but i get the impression they are really friends so doubt the drama is as reported. jess was grooming her new assistant tiffany for the job in my opinion… and tom will pitch in too. they are a group of real people in a hollywood setting. i'm a fan, if you can't tell. best of luck jess.



  53. 253

    Haha, so Kathy called and told you herself? I love her!

    Jessica sucks! She tries so hard to be funny. Kathy's show will rock regardless if she stays or go.

  55. Sativ says – reply to this


    255

    i agree Kathy needs a gay as an assistant. Jess was cool, but she seemed a little too up tight to me. I love Kathy's show and make my boyfriend watch it every time it comes on.

    Re: Joe A – Kathy Is a Kind and GENEROUS Boss! YES ,Its hard work being the Assistant. BUT ,THATS THE JOB! What I want to know is who LEEKED this story! Shame on you! And by the way…ITS TAKE AS DIRECTED, NOT AS NEEDED!!!!!

    261

    I think Kathy should pick a GAY guy to be her next assistant ….this would break up the mix a bit….str8 woman,str8 guy, and a gay guy…makes for more drama.

  62. Jess says – reply to this


    262

    That seems like such an amazing job, the travel, the cool events, being on tv, and how hard can it be keeping track of Kathys schedual when there are two other people to help you out? They must have had some huge fight, otherwise why would she quit?
    I cant belive so many of you hate her, she barely said two words on the show.

  63. Lexy says – reply to this

    Re: Groov

    I totaly agree with you. Not to mention the paid vacations to mexico and Ireland.

    Kathy Id love to be your assistant.

    She seemed like a pot head to me have you ever noticed on some of the shows her eyes a re barely open. lol

  65. Sagia says – reply to this


    265

    She had a job for which she got paid to go all over the world pretty much on vacation each time all on the boss' dime - got paid and paid handsomely for making some calls and keeping a calendar straight…for which she had 2 other people to help her and she just "can't take it anymore?????" How spoiled, lazy and ungrateful can someone be? Kathy's better off without her!

  66. THE R says – reply to this


    266

    THAT GIRL WAS B-O-R-I-N-G. I never heard her say anything smart or funny. She was very blah. That's why she has so many tattoos. She's trying to look like she isn't a lame loser, but then she realized she now has a tattoo sleeve and she's a chick. CHicks with tattoos are skanky. I never saw the chemistry between the 2. I like the other girl better, at least she laughs. Jessica Zwutireuoitu or what evs looks like she takes Ambien when she wakes up. LOSER Seeya.

  78. Betty says – reply to this


    278

    The current season completely sucks, because they're devoting so much time to showing her three completely boring assistants. Seriously, the three of them…it's like they've decided to build episodes around a group of three uninteresting people you might find on the bus or at the DMV. Dump them all. She should ask Lance Bass to be her bitch.

    it apparently is not true, they should still ditch the other two…

  83. CC says – reply to this


    283

    Okay, I liked Jessie and I love Kathy, but who is to say that Kathy really isn't a beotch to work for? I am sure she acts different when the cameras are on or off.. Kathy might be a royal pain in the ass and if so, you can only tolerate working in that environment for so long… or maybe Jessica is just a lazy girl who didn't want to do what she was told..

    who knows? there are always two sides to a story, but Kathy will find another assistant and I Am sure that Jessica will find another job.. NEXT…..

    Kathy stated at her show last night here in Dallas, TX that Jessica DID NOT quit. She is on vacation and will be back next week. In fact she mentioned that Jessica e-mailed her & asked if she had been fired. LOL

  95. Kevin says – reply to this


    295

    saw KG's show last night in Dallas and she let us all know this story is false and the assisatand is on vacation in Nashville. Kathy thought the whole story was quite funny. Whe did a great show in Big D

  96. bitz says – reply to this


    296

    Ok, what I see here is Jessica has had 4 seasons of great travel, meeting many celebrities, I am sure being financially taken care of….I doubt she would have had all that working in an office as an admin…..and you can bet the dress code in an office atmosphere would not allow her "tats" to be shown….I am sure Kathy can be a bit high strung…but you weigh your pros and cons of any situation….how bad could it of been compared to where Jessica will be scraping around now. Kathy will do just fine without Jessica, and Jess should keep her dignity by keeping her mouth shut regarding and personal gossip she knows…but then Kathy is a smart lady….these employees have signed confidentiality agreements I am sure.

    Awww Love you kathy, this sucks. If you're reading this email (and I know you do) email me. I'm not a nut case , just someone who gets you and thinks you need an asst who will take care of you. No drama.

    298

    Ah, huge part of her show? She always seemed kinda whiny and diva like - the whole "assistant to the assistant" thing. Kathy is really great to her assistants, including them in everything including her show, it's just her nature. I'm sure there is a huge line of more interesting assistants waiting to be the number one assistant with an assistant… please! Sorry, I just don't see the whole appeal of this particular assistant… The whole show is cool - who wouldn't die to be a part of it?!

  99. steph says – reply to this


    299

    This is not true at all. It was never confirmed and Despite reports that Jessica Zajicek, Kathy Griffin’s assistant and co-star on Bravo’s “My Life on the D-List,” has left the comedian, a rep for Kathy told AccessHollywood.com that Jessica is still Kathy’s assistant.
