Kathy Griffin Quits Fashion Police after 7 Episodes – ‘I Have Discovered that My Style Does Not Fit with the Creative Direction of the Show’



Kathy GriffinA few weeks ago comedian Kathy Griffin was announced as the replacement of late Fashion Police host, Joan Rivers but only after 7 episodes, Kathy Griffin has announced that she will be leaving the show.

Kathy Griffin announced her departure from the show via this posting on her Twitter account.


Kelly Osbourne, who exit the show 2 weeks ago (click here if you missed it), tweeted her support for Kathy, with a photo of them kissing.

While E! Network has thanked Kathy Griffin for her contribution to the show, there has been no word on who will be replacing her or Kelly Osbourne.

In a statement, the channel said the next episode will air as scheduled March 30 with remaining co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, and with Melissa Rivers, Joan’s daughter, as executive producer.

      Joan’s personality, the manner she said the jokes, even her facial expressions and heck! Also making a damn good fun at her own self was what made it all difference!!

      These other bunch of folks will neither poke a little fun at themselves let alone! So who will tolerate such serious jokes from them if they already have a self preservation attitude. Her daughter Messlia I find a little too serious! Heck she always fell out with Joan as a result.

      Joan never protected nor preserved herself from all jokes! Everyone else was a potential to be mocked at, even her own very self! …….THis, was what made the difference.

      I could never really take a joke from Guilliana let alone a mockery. I may be wrong but she exudes a demeanour that I find somewhat unappealing

    They should just end the show. No one can be like Joan and I personally didn’t find Kathy funny. I miss George on the show. However, I think it’s unfair that the jokes they tolerated from Joan they wouldn’t tolerate from someone else. Things have become way too awkward on that show mehn!!

      I totally agree with you. I’ve heard worse jokes from Joan Rivers but she had such a larger than life personality. I remember seeing Kelly’s shocked expression when Joan told such jokes. Sometimes she laughed but other times she just had that straight look.

      No one could stand up to her and those who did she sort of tossed aside. I find it hard that Kelly who laughed at most of Joan’s jokes now gets super serious over a comment by her colleague. All those guys were meannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn during Joan’s time well maybe apart from George. K so what changed? Why are such jokes now untouchables topics for a new host.

      Oh well time to pack up the show i guess. It could never have been the same without Joan.

    they need people like our very own Bruno, Concerned and Lettertomynaijagirl to help revive this show.

    I saw this coming but I did not have the anointing to prophesied. Bye Kathy!

    We should take a clue from fashion police, we should all prepare for succession while still alive. If only Joan had penciled people to take over from her, groom them and step aside to enjoy retirement….. Life lessons nothing lives forever.

      So true. That’s my major take away from all these. Leaders should carefully handpick successors and train them. Even Jesus did this.

    The BBC needs to take a que from this with the Jermery Clarkson from top gear drama, some shows are nothing withhout the star host…

    Fashion police needs to wrap it up or go a different direction with presenters who actually know fashion. Kathy was wack either ways

      I can’t stand Jeremy Clarkson and his bigoted, ego-inflated sense of white entitlement. That man spews all kinds of foolishness and the BBC will continuously let him off because they know the popularity of that show will just collapse show without him. So I say a big “Nto!” to the BBC for not checking his arrogance from the jump by keeping some kind of understudy nearby to replace him with on the many occasions he’s gotten too big for his boots. Otherwise, how a TV personality like that continues to get away with offensive racial slurs, is just beyond me (e.g. using the N-word, acquiring a black dog and naming it “Didier Dogba”, using the Nazi salute, insulting Thai people by calling them “slopes”, referring to Mexicans as lazy… in fact the man frankly has a severe case of diarrhoea of the mouth).

      Very, very useless irritant. If he believes that he has the required balls, I triple dare him to stand in the midst of a company of the people he regularly insults and use those derogatory terms. Whether dem no go pummel sense into am.

    This is just so obviously still about the Zendaya hair comment. It’s a pity anyways. The show can shut down now.

    I cried when Joan died, i loved her to bits, but i knew it would have been better for FP to bow out graciously after. I never found Kathy funny, missed George and all this Guiliana and Kelly issue just worsened matters. I know it may be hard for Mellisa to decide, but best things is to just let the show go….sad tho

    I do enjoy fashion police, but will admitt the zendaya comment was an all time low. The show died when Joan died, that’s the honest truth. E! need to accept that and move on.

    Fashion Police died with Joan. Every thing going on now is just a prequel to its actual funeral

    at times, some people are irreplaceable e.g. Joan Rivers, Fashion Police

    They should just end the show and do a sister programme fashion related. Instead of Fashion Police.. It should be called Fashion Sense. ..

    No body is indispensable , what Melissa Rivers need to do is to take her time & sort 4 perfect replacement 4 her mother on the show, & ignore all this childish people throwing tantrum on the internet, can’t they leave quietly if they mean well, after all they were all in the racist remark together & apology ve been made. Kelly is so unforgiving & look 2 me like a conspirator

    See what Zendaya’s dreadlock hair has caused now? Just Imagine? Can i be permitted to say i dislike Zendaya for destroying fashion police. If she didn’t do that ugly dreadlocks to the red carpet, we won’t be having all this catastrophe in the first place. Hiss! Good Riddance Kathy and Kelly! The show must go on!


      March 13, 2015 at 3:02 pm

      I share in your pain

    They should bring Wendy Williams as a replacement for Kathy and Miss Jay for Kelly.

    No one loves death…it just happens. So the show didn’t have foresight to prepare a succession plan, big deal! Life must continue; it is normal for things to be rough in the beginning! I would say they re-strategize and re-brand the whole show! Who says it has to have Joan Rivers imprint? Every comedian has his/her style of humor. Then, the show should center around the host’s personality and humor instead of trying to create a replica of Joan Rivers.

    Melisa Rivers needs to take her time and bring in four talented individuals who will bring back that show to light.cause fashion police is slowly going with the wind.Giuliana is not Joan so she cannot make such comments and go away with it.Only Joan could do that.
    Zendaya’s did not destroy fashion police as to some comments am seeing here..the loud mouth of Giuliana has destroyed fashion police because viewers did not relate to her comment on Zendaya’s dreads. If it was Joan Rivers yes that will be taken cause she was a legend in the game..and even when she made some comments that her co hosts did not agree too,you will see Kelly or George and even Giuliana shaking their heads and turning their faces but will laugh along with Joan.
    Melisa who is the producer of that show really wants to keep her moms she has to do some damage so she has to replace Giuliana or better still prep her on tte way she delivers her comments .
    And for some of the people who are short listed to stand in like..Nene Leakes,Khloe Kardashian,Amber rose..I’ll go for none even though i like Amber Rose..The show will lost more viewers.
    Kimora Lee Simmons is a good replacement.

    I think Giuliana was in no position to make a comment like that and if Fashion police goes down then its all her fault. She comes across as a pompous self absorbed person who could never take a joke….. so i wonder why she took it upon herself to dish out one. That being said I think Wendy Williams should replace Joan and Kimora lee can replace Kelly.
