Comedian Kathy Griffin knows all about Keeping Up with the Kardashians – she lives next door to them.

Well, to Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West that is.

“We’re besties,” Girffin says, in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE. “I’m expecting Kim to come by with a pie. Hopefully it’s not going to be like that pie in The Help. But you know…”

Griffin – whose $10.5m Bel Air mansion boasts 8 bedrooms as well as 10 full and 2 half bathrooms – has already had a few visits from the Kardashian matriarch, her friend Kris Jenner.

“[Kris] has already come over twice,” the 55-year-old comic reveals. “One time she came over, and she opened the window and started yelling at Kim and Kanye and I said, ‘Stop it! You are not getting me kicked out!’ because when I say they’re next door, I mean 15 ft, I don’t mean nearby.”

But it turns out the married couple couldn’t be sweeter to live next door to. “They’re actually really dreamy neighbors because the last thing they want is trouble with their neighbors,” Griffin explains. “They’re very busy with Taylor Swift and their lip kits and what have you.”

Griffin confesses that she never thought she’d be living next door to stars that have featured so heavily in her stand-up material. “I don’t know if that’s karma for me or for them. But we’re getting on beautifully and I have not called the homeowners on them they have not called the homeowners on me!”

The former Fashion Police host is sharing more stories of the stars in her new book Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins out on Nov. 22.
