    Kathy Griffin may claim to live her Life on the D-List, but one book purveyor thinks she's worth much more than that.

    The Emmy-winning comic just signed a deal with Ballantine, an imprint of Random House, to write her memoirs for an advance rumored to be worth more than $2 million.

    "Yes, Ballentine did buy Kathy Griffin's book, but we do not confirm advances," the publisher tells E! News.

    The New York Observer claims to have three sources close to the deal who say Griffin sold the tell-all at auction for the eye-popping sum.

    This isn't the first time a funnylady scored a big book deal. Tina Fey signed one last year for a rumored $5 million-$6 million.
