Melissa Rivers Has Some Thoughts on Kathy Griffin’s ‘Fashion Police’ Exit

Kathy Griffin claimed she was standing up for feminism and fairness when she left E! Fashion Police but Melissa Rivers has a different opinion on the matter.

If you remember, Griffin released a statement explaining her departure, saying, “There is plenty to make fun of pop culture without bringing people’s bodies into it… I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference.” But Griffin’s self-righteous indignation rubbed Rivers the wrong way. 

“My biggest complaint was the feeling that she kind of s ** t all over my mother’s legacy in her statement on leaving,” Rivers told Hoda Kotb at the 92nd St. Y. “And I know that was not an intentional reading of it, but that’s how I felt… by calling the comedy and the style of it old-fashioned. It was like, I understand what you were doing, you’re trying to save yourself, but don’t crap all over my mother to do it.”

Rivers obviously feels very close to the Fashion Police brand as its executive producer and, of course, because her mother was the star of the show. She also expressed that she took issue with the allegations of racism after Giuliana Rancic’s “smells like weed” comment on Zendaya’s locs on the Oscars red carpet. “Fashion Police was a little jewel and it was the last piece I had of my mother… I felt like all these people were so out of control, including the person who made the allegation about racism. They took the last thing I had and smashed it.”

We can certainly understand the sentimentality of the show to Melissa Rivers, but we’re not sure if pointing out the racist undertones of Rancic’s comments (though they did not seem to be intentionally racist) is “out of control.” What was out of control were her comments in the first place.

Vogue Netherlands Fails to Impress with Julia Bergshoeff Reprint (Forum Buzz)

Magazines seem to have forgotten we’re in some desperate need of sunshine on our summer covers. Vogue Netherlands thankfully heard our cries and delivered an inviting, season-appropriate cover for its newly-unveiled June 2015 issue. Josh Olins captured Julia Bergshoeff in Hawaii appearing as though she’s just returned from a surf session down at the beach, sporting a Mugler swimsuit teamed with a pair of comfy suede trousers from Chanel.

We were all for the cover until something was brought to our attention. “What a splendid cover! It’s visually strong and it’s inviting! This cover screams summer and I like it. Finally an outdoor shot from them that actually works! One of their best hands down!” raved MON.

“Love this very warm and relaxed summer evening close to the beach. Very inviting!” added |PerfectTonight|.

Forum members were soon informed of the cover image’s original origins, though. “It’s actually a reprint from Vogue UK April 2015,” anaa lpz posted.

“Their second reprint cover. IMO, this image is not really suitable for a cover. Team Vogue NL spends their budget on trips and parties instead of making a good magazine,” DutchHomme sniggered.

Benn98 shared the same sentiments, writing, “Second reprint? This does not bode well. I agree that this doesn’t translate well as a cover. One cannot even see her face with the dark shade and hair. At least they’ve narrowed the font types down for this cover.”

In agreement was Miss Dalloway: “Horrible image to reprint as the cover, completely wrong, and would never ever make me want to pick up the issue!”

“Loved this editorial but don’t know about the cover choice…why reprint? I mean really? Couldn’t they have taken an outtake from the April issue shoot…” gossiping wondered soon after.
