Despite Joan’s passing last year, Melissa is still feeling her presence while working on “Fashion Police.” Melissa revealed, “I hear my mother's voice in my head, which is, ‘We are simply saying what everyone is saying at home, we're just saying it on TV.’"

Melissa is promoting the new season of “Fashion Police,” which will kick off on January 11 at  8p ET/PT to coincide with the 2016 Golden Globes.
