It's Official! Kathy Griffin to Replace Joan Rivers as 'Fashion Police' Host
Comedian Kathy Griffin will be joining E!'s “Fashion Police” when the show returns in January 2015.
Griffin will be stepping in for host Joan Rivers, who passed away in September.
E! Entertainment will also add another new face to the panel, celebrity stylist and TV personality Brad Goreski ("The Rachel Zoe Project" and "It's a Brad, Brad World").
Joan's daughter Melissa, an executive producer on “Fashion Police,” said in a statement, “Kathy just feels right, and Brad brings a fun, new voice to join Giuliana and Kelly in this ensemble. I'm excited to see where this panel takes this series my mother so adored in this next incarnation.”
Kathy added, "I get it! These are some big shoes I'm going to fill. Joan was truly one of a kind. Now I hope you will accept me for me. I'm just Kathy. Did I say I'm just Kathy? I meant I'm Kathy F***ing Griffin and you celebrities better strap yourself in, as I am taking no prisoners. I am not holding back so DAMMIT let's have some fun!"
“Fashion Police” returns to E! on Monday, Jan. 12, 2015.
