So shocking! After much thought and consideration, E! has decided to put ‘Fashion Police’ on hiatus until September. This news comes after two hosts, Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne, recently quit. Read the network’s statement here.
Following Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin‘s abrupt exits from E!’s Fashion Police, the network has decided to put the comedy series on hiatus until September, so they can have the opportunity to “refresh the show before the next awards season.” Will remaining co-hosts, Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski return in the fall? Find out here!
‘Fashion Police’ On Hiatus Till September: Show Paused After Kathy Griffin’s Exit
E!’s Fashion Police released a statement:
“E!’s comedy series Fashion Police is going on hiatus and will return in September. We look forward to taking this opportunity to refresh the show before the next awards season. Our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, along with Executive Producer Melissa Rivers, will continue their roles as we evolve the show into its next chapter for the legions of Fashion Police fans around the world.”
This news is quite shocking, as the show was scheduled to return on Monday, March 30, despite Kathy and Kelly’s exits.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Kathy announced she would be leaving the show in an Instagram post on March 12.
“I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show and now it’s time to move on,” she wrote in a long post.
Of course, Kathy and Kelly’s exits came after Giuliana made a racially insensitive joke about Zendaya‘s dreadlocks at the Oscars, following the big awards show.
