Kathy Griffin's mom was more excited than ever to hit the red carpet.

No, there weren't any free boxes of wine.

She got to meet Kim Kardashian!

"Omg, my Mom lost her s— when she saw @kimkardashian," Griffin, 49, Twittered to the E! reality star, 29. "I had to pull her off Kim."

Kardashian Twittered back, "I love your mom!"

Earlier in the night, Griffin told UsMagazine.com her mother was "a fantastic date. She is a little more popular than I am, so that’s kind of hard for me, but that’s what happens when you star in a show and you have a breakout star like my mom. I am the sidekick tonight. I am her wingman."

Who did Griffin most want to see at the Emmys? Kate Gosselin!

"I have had lunch with Kate Gosselin!" she told Us. "We are BFFs! I’m hoping she is dancing and singing."

Griffin couldn't help but also joke abut her Oscar de la Renta gown.

"It's rented and goes back in an hour!" she teased.

Why did she chose it? Star stylist Robert Verdi.

Said Griffin, "I let let a gay man just dress me like a doll.”

The downside of her dress? "I'm hungry!" she told Us. "I have been dieting to get into this dress!”
