#ZendayaWins: E! Pulls The Plug On “Fashion Police” Until September
Giuliana Rancic issued a formal apology for the terrible comments made about Zendaya Coleman’s faux locs, but you know what they say about not being able to take things back once you’ve released them into the atmosphere. Since the whole Oscars debacle, “Fashion Police” has lost two of its four hosts and now, they’re going on a pretty lengthy hiatus. Six months to be exact.
According to Huff Post, the series will be placed on pause until September so that it can “evolve” into its next chapter. As you may recall, “Fashion Police” was originally set to return on March 30, but that all changed when Kathy Griffin followed Kelly Osbourne’s lead and chucked the deuces, leaving behind Rancic and Brad Goreski.
In an interview with “The View” on Monday, Griffin expressed that in addition to not wanting to be a part of a series that promotes intolerance, she found it difficult to sit around and “comment about pictures of beautiful women in perfect dresses and say kind of bad things.”
The new direction that the series will take is unclear at this point, but it’s beginning to seem that they should scrap it altogether. Things haven’t really been the same since Joan Rivers passed. However, if “Fashion Police” does happen to survive this scandal, we would hope that E! executives, producers, writers and personalities alike have learned their lesson.
Do you think there’s a chance that E! can save the sinking ship that is “Fashion Police”?
