Say goodbye to Fashion Police — for now, at least. Following the recent departures of co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin, E! announced on Tuesday, March 17, that the snarky style show would be missing from the schedule for several months.
"E!'s comedy series Fashion Police is going on hiatus and will return in September," the network said in a statement. "We look forward to taking this opportunity to refresh the show before the next awards season."
The statement continued: "Our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, along with Executive Producer Melissa Rivers, will continue their roles as we evolve the show into its next chapter for the legions of Fashion Police fans around the world."
Fashion Police, previously headlined by the late Joan Rivers, has been in flux recently amid controversy stemming from Rancic's comments about Zendaya Coleman's Oscars hair in February. After the offending remarks aired on TV, Osbourne took to Twitter to distance herself from the scandal. She quit just a few days later.
Her exit preceded Griffin's by less than two weeks. On Thursday, March 12, the Emmy-winning comedienne revealed via Twitter that she was leaving the series just seven episodes into her stint as Joan Rivers' replacement.
"I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show, and now it's time to move on," she wrote. "I am a freedom-loving female and gay rights activist who loves to find the funny in all people, attitudes, beliefs, and appearances, but only when the context permits intelligent humor...My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT...Listen, I am no saint...But I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference."
