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.
