Fashion Police Returning to E! With Melissa Rivers as Co-Host

Melissa Rivers Fashion Police

Sound the fashion alarm — which should be a real thing, if it isn’t already — because E!’s Fashion Police is returning later this summer, following yet another major facelift.

The style-centric series, which has been on hiatus since half the panelists jumped ship earlier this year, will return with new episodes on Monday, Aug. 31.

Additionally, executive producer Melissa Rivers — daughter of the late Police pioneer Joan Rivers — will join Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski as a third co-host. Says Rivers, “I’m very excited to be given the opportunity to continue to work with my E! and Fashion Police family.”

Things haven’t exactly been running smoothly aboard the good ship Fashion Police since Joan Rivers’ death in Sept. 2014. Kathy Griffin, who was essentially hired as Rivers’ replacement, announced her departure in March, explaining that her “style does not fit with the creative direction of the show.” And Griffin’s exit came less than two months after co-host Kelly Osbourne called it quits; her beef was over the fallout from Rancic’s controversial remarks about Zendaya.

The question is: Will you tune in for Fashion Police 2.0? (Or is it 3.0 at this point? 2.5?) Either way, drop a comment with your take on the re-revamped series below.

    Ugh

  2. yup i will be watching. I actually like Fashion Police and I think Melissa will do a really good job! I watched her on “The Talk” and she was really funny!! This whole mess with what Giuliana said about Zendaya is over and done with. Now Im not approving of what she said but my god Joan Rivers said worse stuff about people and no one ever did anything about it. I like Giuliana but she just can’t carry those jokes like Joan did. It will be interesting to see how Melissa does on the show. Award season is just not the same without Fashion Police!

    Well, ok, is there anyone that didn’t see that one coming?

  4. Et al says:

    She’s very excited to have given herself this opportunity.

  5. Dude says:

    If anyone had to host it, it might as well be her.

  6. AngelWasHere says:

    Oh good grief. Let it go already.

  7. kat says:

    I don’t know how anyone could watch Brad Goreski do anything. So, yeah, no.

  8. paula says:

    Yes I will watch. I like Melissa and Giuliana. Don’t like Brad, but I’ll check it out.

  9. Leah says:

    Good, maybe she’ll give the show the final stab.
    This show needs to be gone. And take Rancic with it.
    Oh Melissa, no talent if your own…..

    Pretty smart move by the show, now it’s what they do with it.

      I can live with Melissa and Julianna, but Brad has to go! He brings absolutely nothing to the table. He’s unwatchable! If they can find two other half-way intelligent and entertaining co-hosts to join Melissa and Julianna, then OK, give it a shot. Otherwise, they should stick a fork in it, because this show is done!

    How sad that even in her mother’s death this woman can’t get a job on her own.

    I will give it a try, but I do hope they changed the format because neither one of them can replace Joan. That is the problem, they try to keep it the same and it won’t work without her.
