After the shocking departure of Kelly Osbourne
a few weeks ago, and with E! host Guliana Rancic being in hot water over her comments on actress Zendaya's choice of hairstyle, Fashion Police
are finding themselves in more negative press with Griffin herself leaving her job
as replacement host of the late Joan Rivers.
Kathy Griffin has spoken out on why she left the E! television show. She told the ladies from The View
today (March 16th) that, being a feminist and a comedian, the style of the show didn't fit with her personally:
"I felt like Fashion Police
just was not the thing for me. My style is improvisational, and off the cuff, they have a formula that works so well with Joan (Rivers) for so long that it just did not fit my thing. After a while I kind of felt like I was being forced to comment about pictures of beautiful women in perfect dresses and say kind of bad things."
This comes two days after InTouch Weekly
ran a story where apparently Rancic's demands drove Osbourne and Griffin from the show. According to a report from Radar Online
, an "insider" told the website: "Giuliana’s entourage of a stylist, make-up artist, and assistant, plus her constant need for attention, were absolutely stunning to Kathy."
The source also added that her constant need for attention and praise drove the 54-year-old comedian away from the show. Although reps for Rancic denied the claims, it is not very hard to see that both Osbourne and Griffin seem to be distressed over the E! News' host's recent actions.
Griffin tweeted about gaining support from her Twitter followers after she admitted that she was scared, saying " I am going up against a big cooperation, I am scared and nervous and if you are comfortable...I have this statement read it over and let me know what you think..." she posted a picture of said statement where she wrote in even more detail on why she left the fashion show.
The comedian even said that statements that she previously said in the show she would not have said them now, although she jokingly added that, "There's stuff I probably won't say in five years that I say now, but comedy has to evolve."
What's next for the Fashion Police
, we wonder. With Osbourne, and now Griffin gone, will the show continue with two new hosts? Or will it finally be put off air after the recent criticism it has been receiving on the way they judge female celebrities and their looks?
