Few weeks after Joan Rivers passed on, it became a difficult task to find someone to replace her as host of the weekly TV fashion show. The search went on for months but it seems its finally over as Kathy Griffin is set to be Joan Rivers replacement on ‘Fashion Police’. Kathy will join Melissa Rivers, Kelly Osbourne and Guliana Rancic on the show.
According to TMZ, the show will no longer be a weekly series as E! will roll it out during awards shows and other occasions as event programming. Kathy Griffin might be the perfect person to fill the shoes as she and Joan Rivers have similar sense of humor.
Kathy Griffin is is an American actress and comedian influenced by acts such as Joan Rivers and Don Rickles. Her breakthrough came on the Bravo reality show Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List , which became a ratings hit for the network and earned her two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality Program. Griffin has released six comedy albums, with all of them receiving Grammy Award nominations. Her first album, For Your Consideration , made her the first female comedian to debut at the top of the Billboard Top Comedy Albums chart Griffin is known for her conversational style and controversial statements on celebrities, religion and sexuality. After being nominated for six years in a row for the Grammy for Best Comedy Album, she finally won in 2014, becoming only the third woman to win the category. We are hoping she delivers just like Joan Rivers did.
