Kathy Griffin Leaving Fashion Police

Let’s be honest, no one can quite fill Joan River’s shoes on Fashion Police. That much is apparent. However, when it was announced that D-list comedian, Kathy Griffin would take over, I was slightly intrigued. It wasn’t until Griffin began appearing on show, when I realized that her presence actually deemed favorable. If you’ve ever watched Kathy Griffin’s New Years Eve special with Anderson Cooper, you’d know what I’m talking about. Griffin shares that blunt, don’t-give-a-s**t type humor, which, to me; is a breath of fresh air in a world filled with insincere flattery. So you can imagine my surprise when it was announced yesterday, that just after 7 episodes, Griffin would be leaving the show. The news comes merely weeks after associate host, Kelly Osbourne also announced her departure from the show, after a five year run. Griffin made the sad announcement on Twitter yesterday, saying “I thought that I could bring my brand of humor to Fashion Police so that beautiful people in beautiful dresses could be teased when appropriate. My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT”  It’s not entirely certain why the comedian is leaving the show, but judging from Griffin’s statement, it’s highly likely that it had something to do with the writers. With Kelly and Kathy both leaving, that only leaves Juliana Rancic and Brad Goreski left on the show, with an impending question; what will the future fate of Fashion Police be?

I am a journalistic enthusiast, born and bred in Washington, D.C. When I'm not busy meticulously constructing posts, I can be found burying my head in an epic novel, cooking a delicious mess in the kitchen, scouring local thrift stores, and spending way too much time binging on Netflix (Arrested Development anyone?). I cannot live without a good playlist (Billy Holiday is preferred), working wifi (sometimes not always working), and Dunkin Donuts coffee (caramel swirl is my go-to flavor). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to the email below. Happy Reading!
