Ever since the tragic death of Joan Rivers, the “Fashion Police” series’ future has seemed a bit up-in-the-air, and in light of the departures of Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin, something had to be done.
On Tuesday night (March 17) the E! Network announced that they will be pulling the show from their lineup until this fall.
It’s been a tumultuous time over at the E! Network headquarters since both Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin jumped off the “Fashion Police” bandwagon and now the 54-year-old comedienne is speaking out about why she decided to depart.
In a new interview on “The Howard Stern Show,” Griffin explained, “I don’t really feel it was my best work, I’ll be honest. I stand by my specials and my series. The lane that that show was in was so specific that they weren’t able to make the transition to the comedic lane that I work in. I just don’t think that it’s really what I do. I think Joan was the master of the one liners and the zingers.”
The crimson-haired comedienne is featured in her first promotional clip for the E! show, joined by Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski. Kelly starts out with, “You have the right to remain stylish,” before Griffin chimes in, “Anything you wear can and will be held against you.”
She’s thrilled to be the new host of “Fashion Police,” and Kathy Griffin can’t wait to get started calling celebrities out on their bad sense of style. During her interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" the notorious 54-year-old comedienne explained she wants to do whatever she can to bring glory to the late Joan Rivers.
Kathy declared, "This was a job that was held by our dear friend Joan Rivers. I understand I have some very, very large shoes to fill. In her honor, I will not be holding back. I am giving no passes, I am going to let people have it, I'm gonna bring the hammer down."
The trouble began when the redhead was asked during a Twitter chat to share the "biggest douche celebrity" she has ever met, and Kathy responded, writing a tweet that has now since been deleted, "Probably [Demi] Lovato," adding, "Plus she should calm the f down bout Lady Gaga gettin barfed on."
During a Twitter chat earlier this week, the red-haired comedian shared that the "biggest douche celebrity was "Probably [Demi] Lovato. Plus she should calm the f down bout Lady Gaga getting barfed on."
Steering clear of all teeny bopper influence, the American Association of Retired Persons took over the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel for the 13th Annual AARP Movies for Grownups Awards Gala last night (February 10).
