The gang’s all here! News broke on Wednesday, June 17, that Melissa Rivers would be joining Fashion Police as an official co-host after years of serving as an executive producer on the show. The sole daughter of the late Joan Rivers was quickly welcomed with open arms by her co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski.
“I adore Melissa,” Rancic, 40, gushed to Us Weekly at the Cooking For Two event at Samsung Studio in Los Angeles, shortly after the announcement was made. “I’ve known Melissa forever, we talk all the time, we text all the time. No one knows the show as well as Melissa. I think it’s an exciting time for Fashion Police. I like that there’s a familiarity there, and we all know each other so well, it’s a lot harder to welcome a new person in because you have to get to know them and their timing.”
Rancic also noted that the direction of the style critiquing show is currently up in the air as those involved discuss how the new season will look.
“[Rivers is] really aligned with Brad and I in that we definitely want to celebrate people and talk about fashion and have fun with fashion and just make it as entertaining and fast-paced as possible,” she added. “I think it’ll be something different. She’s not trying to be someone else, so she’s just going to try to just bring her own unique personality to the table.”
Stylist Goreski, 37, was equally enthused by the new addition to the on-screen Fashion Police family.
“I’m excited to come back in September, you know, with the new panel, and I think it’s going to be an incredible show,” he told Us at the Shutterfly by Design event in NYC. “You know, I think the audience has missed it while it’s been off the air, and you know, we’ll be back and full steam ahead talking about all things fashion and celebrity related.”
Rancic also revealed that Fashion Police will return in August to offer their thought on this year’s MTV VMAs.
