Kathy Griffin Leaving ‘Fashion Police’
Hot on the heels of Kelly Osbourne's departure comes news that "Fashion Police" host Kathy Griffin is leaving the show after only seven episodes.
"We can confirm that Kathy Griffin is leaving E!'s Fashion Police," E! Entertainment Television said in a statement Thursday. "We wish her all the best and are grateful for her time on the show, as well as the many laughs that she gave us all. Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30, at 9 p.m. with our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, and executive producer Melissa Rivers."
"No further information is available at this time."
Griffin joined "Fashion Police" in January, replacing Joan Rivers, who died last September. She issued a tweet Thursday which read, "After seven episodes of Fashion Police, I discovered that my style doesn't fit with the creative direction of the show & now it's time to move on.
"I wish E! and the E! team only the best and I hope to continue to make you all laugh performing live or on television where I can be smart, irreverent, unrepentant and unafraid in an observational way that is candid, honest and justified. Thank you to my fans for taking this ride with me."
"Fashion Police" panelist Kelly Osbourne left the show in February after complaints about co-panelist Giuliana Rancic's comments about former Disney star Zendaya that some considered racist.
