E! network has announced that it has found a new Fashion Police co-host in comedian Kathy Griffin, who is set to fill the empty seat left by the untimely death of Joan Rivers. The network has also added celebrity stylist and TV personality Brad Goreski to the cast, who’ll be replacing George Kotsiopoulos.
Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa is an Executive Producer on the series and is completely behind the addition of both new members saying, “Kathy just feels right, and Brad brings a fun, new voice to join Giuliana and Kelly in this ensemble. I’m excited to see where this panel takes this series my mother so adored in this next incarnation.”
Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, E! also released a statement about the two new co-hosts stating, “Not only was Joan a trailblazer, she was also a dear friend and mentor to Kathy, who will no doubt continue her legacy and do the series justice by bringing her own unique comedic style and tell-it-like-it-is personality to the host chair. Plus, the addition of trendsetting stylist Brad completes the panel as the show begins its next chapter, which will focus on covering the major award shows and fashion events throughout the year.”
Kathy and Brad begin their stint on Fashion Police on January 12.
