E!’s ‘Fashion Police’ will end next month – Los Angeles Times
Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, who co-created the series and served as executive producer, succeeded the veteran comic as the host in 2015, dishing her mother’s signature one-liners and celebrity-aimed zingers. E! personality Giuliana Rancic, stylist Brad Goreski, reality star NeNe Leakes and comedian Margaret Cho now serve as panelists alongside her, along with a slew of celebrity guests who weigh in on notable fashion hits and misses.
“Joan’s beloved no-holds-barred style fueled the franchise’s clever approach to fashion and comedy, and we are incredibly proud of its long-running success,” E! President Adam Stotsky said in a statement. “We are also especially grateful to Melissa, as well as Giuliana, Brad, Nene, Margaret and the entire ‘Fashion Police’ team, who have continued to deliver the laughs and make this iconic franchise truly one of a kind.”
In the statement, Melissa Rivers thanked the network for “having the vision to see the potential of ‘Fashion Police,'” and credited the show with changing the entertainment and fashion industries.
“I am truly proud to be part of this legacy,” she said.
The network said it will continue its red-carpet coverage and fashion analysis through other programs such as “Live from the Red Carpet,” “E! News Look Book” and digital platforms.
