I'll admit, I've only watched about a 1/2 an episode of Fashion Police (take my card away now), but have always had respect for Joan Rivers and what she has accomplished. I remember seeing clips of her appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show . Before she was doing live stand-up on the show, she was a writer for the Topo Gigio skits (that just aged me a little). See one of her stand-up appearances from 1967 below.
For E!, to replace Joan or not is the question. As Radar has reported, the entire cast of Fashion Police wasn’t in favor of the show returning to the air at all.
On Wednesday, the Daily News declared that 53 year old Kathy Griffin was pegged as the front runner to add her humor and classic timing to the E! network by taking over Joan's spot on the panel. Today and other sources say The Real Housewives of Atlanta talent Nene Leakes, 46, is the new top of the list.
Whichever host receives the nod from Melissa Rivers an E! to become the new anchor of Fashion Police, I wish them the best. I love Nene and I love Kathy, but I may be in agreement with the existing cast and not resume filming at all.
