Laverne Cox Is Replacing Giuliana Rancic As E!’s Red Carpet Host

May 11, 2021 / Posted by:

Today in “HA!”, E! has announced they’ve replaced their recently departed red carpet host Giuliana Rancic with THEE Laverne Cox. Laverne will take over beginning with the 2022 awards season, and will also host a series of celebrity interview specials. OK, let’s call it: Laverne is the next Joan Rivers/Baba Wawa. NOT the next Giuliana Rancic. Nobody should ever be the next Giuliana Rancic.

Laverne says (via People):

“I’m so excited and deeply humbled to be hosting E!’s iconic red carpet coverage. For many years I would wake up early on awards show days, get my snacks in place and watch E!’s coverage all day long,” Cox said in a statement.

“I dreamed of walking red carpets. Now, not only have I had several fun and amazing personal red carpet moments, I also get to be a red carpet guide for E!’s discerning audience and chat with my colleagues and folks I deeply admire for these very special events in their lives,” she continued. “I can’t wait to get started while hopefully serving up fashion fantasies for the ages, honey.”

Ooo, yesss. Now she gets to appear on every single red carpet wearing super hot fawshuns and showing up all the other milquetoast celebs she’s interviewing.

E! welcomed Laverne in a statement, with executive Jen Neal calling her “a risktaker, groundbreaking pioneer and a fashion tour de force.” They also tweeted this:

Honestly, E! could’ve hired a broom and strapped it with a tape recorder that repeated “So who are you are wearing?” on loop, and it’d still be an improvement over Giuliana, Queen of the Microaggression. But I’m delighted that they went a step further and hired Laverne. Does this mean I’ll start watching E! red carpet coverage? Only time will tell.
