RIP Fashion Police

One of the things Griffin blames many people for is her disastrous tenure on Fashion Police at E!  “I left that show because I didn’t feel like they were doing Joan Rivers‘ legacy right, and I didn’t feel like I could do a good job there.”  Melissa Rivers has a vastly different opinion on Kathy’s departure.  “My biggest complaint was the feeling that she kind of shit all over my mother’s legacy in her statement on leaving.”  It’s a moot point now because E! has cancelled Fashion Police.  I suppose it’s a miracle that it lasted these past three years without Joan Rivers.  What’s more mind-boggling is that the show has been on the air in some form or another since 1995!  Admittedly, there were a few years that it went on without the Grim Rivers – when Joan and Missy defected to TV Guide Channel (a little detail that is rarely mentioned in the CliffsNotes version of the show’s history).  To pay tribute to Joan and her legacy, such as it is, E! will air Fashion Police: The Farewell on November 27th.  It will include the current panel, clips from the past, and outtakes.  And likely not include a special appearance by Griffin.  Rest in peace.
