Kathy Griffin to Replace Joan Rivers on ‘Fashion Police’?

With Fashion Police confirmed for return in January 2015, it’s being rumored that comedienne Kathy Griffin is set to take Joan Rivers’ seat at the helm of the show.

via Mail Online:

Joan Rivers is a tough act to follow, but E! Network has decided its hit show Fashion Police will continue – with Kathy Griffin filling Joan’s Jimmy Choos.

Show insiders tell MailOnline, that Joan’s daughter Melissa Rivers agreed to continue to produce her mother’s show and has given her blessing to the choice. E! executives are negotiating a deal with the popular redhead.

‘Kathy has been told if she wants the gig she can have it because Melissa wanted someone who her mother would have approved of,’ says the show source. ‘Kathy will probably take the position but they are still working out the deal.’

Joan created Fashion Police and Melissa produced and directed the show, so Joan’s grieving daughter may be on the first show they tape to say a few words about her mother and to introduce Kathy.

While Joan was in a coma, rumors were floating around at the time that Kathy would pitch hit for Joan on the show, which she vigorously denied.

“It’s disgusting. It’s not true,’ she told Larry King . ‘And I know that stuff shouldn’t bother me at this stage of my career—you know, I thought I’d heard it all—but that one hurts, because it’s as far from the truth as you can get.’

E! nor Kathy have yet to officially comment. I feel this wouldn’t be a bad move for Fashion Police. Kathy could be a great addition. But lets be honest, there really is no Fashion Police without Joan Rivers. What do you think?
