'Fashion Police' will go on without Joan Rivers
Fashion Police will go on despite the death of its punchy host Joan Rivers.
E! made the announcement on Friday, saying Rivers’ daughter, Melissa, had given the network her blessing.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Joan Rivers and, for the last two weeks, have turned our attention to honoring her memory on all of our platforms. We have also thought long and hard about what Joan would have wanted as it pertains to the future of Fashion Police,” the network said in a statement. “We decided, with Melissa Rivers’ blessing, that Joan would have wanted the franchise to continue. Fashion Police will return in 2015 commencing with Golden Globes coverage on Monday, January 12. No further details will be announced at this time.”
The news came on the network’s “Joan Day,” an all-day Fashion Police marathon paying tribute to Rivers. Melissa will also host a 90-minute special in which she and Fashion Police co-stars Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic, George Kotsiopoulos will look back on the comedy icon’s life.
