Kathy Griffin lives her life on the D-list, but she recently had an A-list moment with her idol, Cher. “I was shaking,” Kathy tells In Touch of meeting the singer at her Las Vegas concert on August 16. “She was delightful and what a great ass she has!

Maybe someday she’ll come see me [perform in Las Vegas] at Mandalay Bay. A girl can dream, can’t she?” says Kathy.
