CNN New Year's gaffe aside, the red-headed terror of Times Square who heckled a heckler off camera with a line that made cohost Anderson Cooper howl has managed to snag a huge book deal.

Ballantine has ponied up $2 million for the Griffin memoir.

The New York Observer claims Griffin's literary agent at Endeavor, former Dutton editor-in-chief Trena Keating, sold it at auction last week to an editor at Random House’s Ballantine imprint for more than $2 million.

The comic stars in the Bravo series, "My Life on the D-List" and has a fanbase that includes servicemen and woman and loads of gay men. (Griffin does a lot of USO)
