Kathy Griffin is about to fill some very big — and stylish — shoes.
The comedian will helm E!’s “Fashion Police” in the wake of Joan Rivers‘ death, TMZ reports. Sources connected with the show say the hiring is a “done deal.”
Earlier this month, Griffin confirmed she was offered the gig, but told “Access Hollywood,” “I don’t know if the situation is correct at this time for me or right for me at this time.”
According to TMZ, the fashion critique show will axe its weekly format when it returns to the airwaves. Instead, it will only air during awards shows and other special events.
The 54-year-old will join co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic, as well as Joan’s daughter, Melissa Rivers, the website reports. George Kotsiopoulos’ role on the show is not yet known.
A rep for E! told Page Six, “At this point, talks are continuing and we have nothing to confirm.”
Hmmm…her style of humor is pretty loud and offensive, much like Joan’s was. You think she can pull it off?
