“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Joan Rivers and, for the last two weeks, have turned our attention to honoring her memory on all of our platforms. We have also thought long and hard about what Joan would have wanted as it pertains to the future of Fashion Police. We decided, with Melissa Rivers’ blessing, that Joan would have wanted the franchise to continue. Fashion Police will return in 2015 commencing with Golden Globes coverage on Monday, January 12. No further details will be announced at this time.”
In an interview with ABC News, Giuliana Rancic opens up about the sad, untimely death of Joan Rivers while also addressing a topic we’ve all been wondering about since then: What will happen to Fashion Police?
“They are looking at different scenarios, whether it moves forward or it doesn’t,” Rancic revealed. “Melissa…a lot of that will be up to her and how she’s feeling and how she decides what she wants to do, along with the execs here at E! There is no word now…they are seeing what Fashion Police looks like without Joan.” She adds, preemptively asking another question many of us have: “A part of me is like Joan would want Melissa and us and the team to go on, and I know she would, but it’s just a matter of can there be a show without Joan? Do we want to do a Fashion Police without Joan? I don’t know.”
