Kathy Griffin Exits Fashion Police — Read Her Official Statement

Kathy Griffin Daytime Emmys

And then there were two.

Following Kelly Osbourne’s dramatic exit from E!’s Fashion Police just a few weeks ago, newcomer Kathy Griffin is also handing in her resignation — and tweeting about it.

“After 7 episodes of Fashion Police, I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show [and] now it’s time to move on,” Griffin tweeted Thursday night. “I wish E! and the E! team only the best and I hope to continue to make you all laugh performing live or on television, where I can be smart, irreverent, unrepentant and unafraid in observational way that is candid, honest and justified.”

Shortly after Griffin posted the above, E! responded with an official statement of its own:

We can confirm that Kathy Griffin is leaving E!’s Fashion Police. We wish her all the best and are grateful for her time on the show, as well as the many laughs that she gave us all. Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30 at 9pm with our talented Co-Hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski and Executive Producer Melissa Rivers. No further information is available at this time.

For those of you keeping score at home, this leaves Rancic and Goreski as the show’s only remaining full-time panelists.
