With the passing of Joan Rivers and the resignation of Kathy Griffin, Fashion Police is in need of a host and, if rumors are to be believed, it may have just found one. Sources say that the E! show has tapped executive producer Melissa Rivers to take her mother’s place as the show’s panel moderator.
Fashion Police is expected to return to the airwaves August 31 and according to this anonymous source, Melissa is thrilled to be walking in her mama’s footsteps. “She is so happy, she is excited. The idea actually came from her. The bosses like it. It’ll be a tribute to her mom, and Melissa’s the one who understands how it’s done. She can pull it off.” Fashion Police is signed up for six shows this season and will recruit a rotating crew of celebrity guests to offer commentary for the broadcasts.
There was a mass exodus of Fashion Police staffers after Giuliana Rancic made some off-color comments about Zendaya Coleman’s locs at the Oscars. Co-stars Kelly Osbourne and Kathy left after the big controversy.
