Kathy Griffin Reportedly Stepping Into Joan Rivers' Role On Fashion Police, But It Sure Sounds Like She Doesn't Want The Gig

Everyone has been wanting to know what will happen with Fashion Police ever since the show lost their hilarious and AH-Mazing leader, Joan Rivers.

We now know that the show will be coming back to TV, but will it just be the three hosts who sat alongside Joan for all those years or will someone else be stepping in to take charge?

We're now hearing Kathy Griffin has been offered the gig of hosting the show, with Melissa Rivers' blessing:

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

We must say, while it's impossible to replace Joan, we can see her happily approving of Kathy taking the lead.

However, we're not so sure that's what's going to go down because Kathy once said she'd never take Joan's job.

During an interview with Larry King after Joan's death, Kathy addressed rumors that she was going after Joan's Fashion Police job while Joan was in a coma:

"It's disgusting. It's not true… I thought I'd heard it all, but that [rumor] hurts because it's as far from the truth as you can get. I would never take Joan's job. Joan and I had a different style. She absolutely was my mentor for sure, but no."

So that leaves us all wondering, will Kathy step in for Joan if that's what Joan would want?

Or will Fashion Police leave Joan's spot empty because no one can truly ever replace her?

    If not Katy, the only other realistic option is Wendy Williams!

    UGH !!!

    Good. A comedian is needed. But get good enough writers–and pay them–that your carefully-wrought humor doesn't start to slip. I think that was a problem for Joan.

    UGH I KNEW they were gonna do this and its a BAD decision. Kathy is too loud mouth and annoying for a weekly show. I do like her comedy but in small doses. No no no. Bad call.

    Re: Craig L. – OMG Wendy would be a brilliant choice - though she's suuuper busy I think! Just NOT Kathy

    Kathy is good but they should still scout around for a very witty female fashionable comedian.

    I love Kathy, but a few trial runs with guest hosts would be a better way to go just to feel out the chemistry between the other hosts and the reaction the new host gets. I think Jeff Goldblum would be a great candidate.

    Kathy Griffin…………YUK, YUK, YUK !!!!

    She is not a leader, she has been a follower her whole "career" - Following the jokes, style and delivery of others (copies others)

    Re: Antony
    Wendy is TOO phony - no guts, interest or talent. Too much a BIG YAWN !!!

  11. ZoeyJ says – reply to this


    Wanda Sykes- she is talented, smart, has balls/guts, does not hesitate to go after the jugular, funny and talented.
    Wanda may not be the fashion expert, but the other crew can provide that with Wanda's commentary.
    There will NEVER be another Joan Rivers………but Wanda would add her own style, flavor and snap.

    Won't be able to tell a difference.

    Griffin has no class she is so gross Joan would be so disappointed we thought so little of her thats sad

    Sharon Osborne would be fabulous - surprised I haven't seen her name come up yet for the job. And oddly? would continue the mother daughter thing. Someone please tell the people making the decision NOW!,
