It is no easy feat to take that seat on Fashion Police after Joan Rivers. E! announced that Kathy Griffin will taking the throne along side the well-loved Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osborne and new panelist, Brad Goreski (of ‘The RachelZoe Project’ & “It’s A Brad Brad World’) .
Fashion Police was made famous by the iconic and indelible Joan Rivers. Melissa Rivers continues on the show as the Executive Producer. The show will air 17 style-studded episodes throughout the year, focused exclusively on the excitement surrounding the biggest red carpet and fashion events of 2015 including the Oscars, Grammys, Emmys, New York Fashion Week and more.
Kathy Griffin is a two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian and is a towering figure on television, on tour, and in publishing. She’s definitely a big honcho in the entertainment scene and blows you away with her universally recognized brand of pull-no-punches comedy. With her signature style of comedy, she will honour the spirit of Joan Rivers and be worthy of that seat on Fashion Police!
This year, Kathy made history with her 6th consecutive Grammy nomination and had her first win for Best Comedy Album (Kathy Griffin: Calm Down Gurrl), as one of only three female comedians to ever win Grammy awards for Best Comedy Album. In 2013 Kathy was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for writing and starring in an unprecedented 20 televised stand-up specials – more than any comedian in history.
