"Fashion Police is not the same as it was with Joan Rivers" - Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin

Quitting E!’s Fashion Police as host, after a few shows and following Kelly Osborne’s exit, Kathy Griffin has opened up on her decision to leave the show.

Read excerpts below;
"I probably shouldn't have taken the gig. Melissa [Rivers] is the one who called me and said, 'You're the only person that I feel my mom would truly have given her blessing to.' So that was kind of the decider.

I don't really feel it was my best work. I stand by my specials and my series. The lane that that show was in was so specific that they weren’t able to make the transition to the comedic lane that I work in. I just don't think that it’s really what I do. I think Joan was the master of the one liners and the zingers.

From the jump, like even before I started, I don't know why but I've never worked on a show with so many leaks. It's a leaky boat over there.

I was, you know, a little surprised by [Kelly Osbourne quitting]. Because it was like an 'up and I'm out of here' and she is pals with Zendaya so she felt like, I think, she was like sticking up for her pal. I think that Kelly has said post [leaving] that she had four or five such great years with Joan. And, to me, that means, 'You know it's not the same as it was with Joan' and I've got to be honest, I kind of feel the same way."
