We’re all still reeling from the sudden death of veteran comedienne Joan Rivers, but as they say in Hollywood the show must go on.
Talks have been ongoing since Joan’s death in August regarding her replacement on style show, Fashion Police, and it has been confirmed that Kathy Griffin, Joan's on-screen daughter in 90’s TV show Suddenly Susan, will be the woman to take her place.
Kathy Griffin, a comedienne and TV presenter in her own right, was offered the position last month but was unsure if she was going to take it, saying “I don’t know if the situation is correct at this time for me or right for me at this time.” Seems like the fifty-four-year-old red head has thought it over and decided to go for it. We think she made the right choice!
Aside from a new presenter, the show on E! which made its screen debut in 2010, will be undergoing a format change. Instead of our weekly dose of catty comments and fashion tips, the programme will only air during award shows and other high profile events. Aw sadface!
Kathy will be joining regular hosts Kelly Osborne and Giuliana Rancic on the popular show and we’re sure her outrageous sense of humour will be a perfect fit.
