Melissa Rivers Announced As New Co-Host Of Fashion PolicePublished on June 18, 2015.
After a lot of drama and the exit of hosts Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin, Fashion Police is looking for yet another fresh start and are beginning by naming Melissa Rivers as the newest co-host of the show.
Melissa, the daughter of the late Joan Rivers is also the executive producer of the series and will be joining returning hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski in her new role, and every week the three will be joined by different celebrity guests to help host.
“As an executive producer since the beginning, Melissa helped shape Fashion Police into an iconic TV series that couples fashion with comedy,” Jeff Olde, the Executive Vice President of Programming and Development for E! stated in a press release.
“We are pleased to now also feature Melissa in front of the ‘Fashion Police’ cameras, as she joins returning panelists Giuliana and Brad. And with the added flavor of rotating panelists, the show will deliver fresh, different and unpredictable fashion reviews with each new episode.”
Following the death of Joan Rivers, the show took a break before returning into time for awards season, naming Kathy Griffin as Rivers replacement, however an Oscars joke gone wrong caused a lot of controversy leading to the exit of both Griffin and Osbourne and consequently E! decided to put the show back on hiatus for a few months.
