Kathy Griffin Exits From E!’s Fashion Police After 7 Episodes

Ultimately, Kathy Griffin and Fashion Police were not the right fit.

The comedienne is leaving the E! show after seven episodes as host, having replaced the late Joan Rivers in January.

“We can confirm that Kathy Griffin is leaving E!’s Fashion Police,” the network 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 also said today as part of a lengthy tweet: “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.”

Hmmm…I have no words.

  1. Awww! And I was really enjoying her already.I think this will have a link to giuliana’s ‘patchouli/weed’ comment. **justAThought**

  2. I liked that she left. If you have to worry about treading on toes on such a show, then what’s the point. I hate that Gullana apologised to Zendaya and her team of witch-hunting bats. I think that was where she messed up and cuffed not only herself, but everyone else on the show; that was, for me, validating a publicity stunt as something altruistic. And this irritates me to no end.

      Imagine the statement she made:
      ‘“When I chose to step into the shoes of my beloved friend Joan Rivers at ‘Fashion Police,’ I was thrilled to continue her legacy as a woman being brash and eccentric on television. I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference.”
      What do you make of it, Dozie?

      • I think it’s like I’ve stated already: she didn’t want to be stifled. When you are a brand and you know your worth I don’t suppose you’d let yourself be pushed around.
        I imagine the folks at E! are trying to create a more PC show in the wake of all the hullabaloo, which would be a stupid thing to do, because then the show would die an unnatural death.
        I just wish they’d have taken the bull by the horns and called out Zendaya. I know that would have been what I would have done in the situation. People tend to be sheepish in this age, so it’s usually a question of showing them the wolf in sheep clothing, or sending them after the right shepherd.
