Will Kathy Griffin Be Replacing Joan Rivers on Fashion Police?

As far as we're concerned, Joan Rivers is totally irreplaceable, but unfortunately for E! they have to try to find a replacement, anyway.

After the comedienne passed away earlier this month, the network put the popular show on a hiatus as everyone dealt with the devastating news of her passing.

During a special 90-minute Fashion Police: Remembering Joan special on September 19, it was announced that the show would continue without the comedic legend. "Yes, Fashion Police will continue," her daughter and the show's executive producer, Melissa Rivers confirmed.

So, that answers that question, but the next big question is who could possibly fill Joan's shoes? According to a new report by The Hollywood Reporter, a shortlist of potential male and female replacements for Joan has already been drawn up and Kathy Griffin is in "serious contention."

Kathy seemed to dismiss that rumor on her Twitter page on Wednesday, writing "Just 2 clarify. I have not contacted E! & they have not contacted me."

The thing is, both stories could be true, because the source told The Hollywood Reporter that E! hasn't had any "formal conversations" with anyone and that the network wants Melissa to be involved, which only seems fair.

At this point, however, the network apparently doesn't feel that enough time has passed to even start having those discussions at all.
