Sometimes a diss is just a misunderstanding.

On Wednesday, Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa Rivers went on Howard Stern's radio show, claiming that she was snubbed by Jay Leno after her mother's death.

Joan was famous banned from NBC's The Tonight Show by Jay's predecessor, Johnny Carson, after she launched a rival show on FOX. During Jay's 20+ year late night run, Joan was never invited (though Jimmy Fallon eventually ask her back).

Melissa says she was dissed by Jay at event just months after Joan's death:

"My mother passed in September, and I was asked to speak at The Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment breakfast at the beginning of December, so it was very fresh … I walk in, and I'm standing, having a coffee in the reception area, and Jay…looks right at me, and looks away."

Melissa thought he would approach her and offer his condolences:

"It would have been closure, and it would have been the right thing to do."

In an EXCLUSIVE statement to PerezHilton.com, Jay's rep says it was all a misunderstanding:

How the mighty have fallen!

Despite being E!'s go-to red carpet girl, it seems as though Giuliana Rancic won't be appearing on Fashion Police anytime soon.

That's because the entertainment network announced on Tuesday that it has decided to postpone the upcoming episodes until September!

As you probably know, Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin both left the series following G's distasteful Zendaya comments, but the show was still set to go on.

New episodes were supposed to resume with Giuliana and Brad Goreski as the panel on March 31, but that's no longer the case according to a statement from E!, saying:

Would this count as a fashion faux pas?

We were pretty surprised on Thursday when Kathy Griffin announced that she was quitting Fashion Police… but we're even more surprised by the news that the E! series is going to continue with only two of its hosts!

As you probably know by now, after Giuliana Rancic made those distasteful Zendaya comments, Kelly Osbourne promptly quit over the racist controversy, leaving just G and newbie Brad Goreski on the panel.

And while the future of Melissa Rivers' show seemed bleak, the entertainment network revealed that it has no plans of cancelling the stylish show!
