Looks like E!’s hunt for the next Fashion Police host is officially over. TMZ reports that the network has chosen feisty comedienne Kathy Griffin to fill the late Joan Rivers‘ shoes as host of the red carpet fashion recap show. Sources say that Kathy is pretty much signed, sealed and official with the network.
This is definitely an exciting (though not altogether unsurprising) development, though fans of Fashion Police will be sad to hear that the show will not air nearly as much now that Joan is gone. Apparently, E! will reserve the show for red carpet specials only and it will no longer broadcast weekly. Bummer.
Kathy is known for her no-holds-barred brand of comedy and we’re sure she’ll serve that same “Oh no, she did not just say that” reaction that Joan used to bring to the show. If you ask us, the pick makes perfect sense.
