Earlier this month, the entertainment world suffered the shocking loss of Joan Rivers, who passed away at age 81. Many questioned what her death meant for her popular E! TV show, “Fashion Police”. Would E! try to cast a replacement? Would the show be pulled off of the air? From the looks of it, or at least according to the folks over Perez Hilton, the show will go on.
If reports are correct, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes and comedian Kathy Griffin are both being seriously considered by E! producers to fill Joan’s slot. NeNe is reportedly a strong contender because she has her own fashion line with HSN and is considered to be one of the more fashionable Atlanta Housewives. Her sharp tongue, comedic timing and the networks reported hopes to diversify the panel are also supposedly working in her favor.
On the other hand, Kathy Griffin is being considered because it’s believed that her sense of humor would add an interesting element to the panel; however, the fact the she doesn’t have much of a fashion background may cripple her chances.
Supermodel and former TV host Tyra Banks’ name is also being tossed around, which would make a lot of sense considering that she has experience in both television and fashion.
Are you a fan of “Fashion Police”? Who would you like to see as the next host?
