Even though Fashion Police has survived in some form or fashion after Joan Rivers’ passing in 2014, it hasn’t really felt the same since none of the remaining cast knows how to tell a good dry pussy joke. The execs at E! must long for those days because they’ve decided to cancel the show and send it off with a farewell next month.
Variety reports the show that was Joan’s major platform in the years leading up to her death will feature a series finale special on November 27. It will be hosted by Joan’s daughter Melissa Rivers as well as Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski, NeNe Leakes, and Margaret Cho. And so goes another direct deposit for the fallen Georgia peach…
Fashion Police started in 2010, and when Joan died, the show went into a bit of a tailspin. Kathy Griffin was brought in to take over for Joan, but things went off the rails when Giuliana said Zendaya’s 2015 Oscar lewk must smell like patchouli and weed. Kelly Osbourne quit that bitch, and Kathy followed suit. The show was repurposed into the occasional special with Melissa as the new host, but it never recovered post-Joan, which Fashion Police’s executive producer Gary Snegaroff sort of implied when all he talked about was Joan in his statement:
“What’s been consistent through all the years has been a love of fashion, and that started with Joan. The only thing she loved more than fashion was getting a laugh, so this combined her two loves. She always felt that fashion was something to be discussed, not to be taken too seriously, and that’s the show we put together.”
The finale will feature clips from an unaired 80s-themed episode as well as segments from the show like “Bitch Stole My Look” and “Guess Me From Behind.” Sigh, “Guess Me From Behind” is my favorite 1AM game to watch after the bar. You know whatever bland show they replace Fashion Police with isn’t going to feature ass games!
