'Fashion Police' to continue without Joan Rivers, E! announces
UPI News Service, 09/19/2014
E! has announced "Fashion Police" will return in 2015 because that is what its late co-host Joan Rivers would have wanted.
Along with her co-stars Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos, Rivers critiqued celebrities' style at awards shows and other red-carpet events for "Fashion Police."
The comedy icon's death this month at the age of 81 left the four-year-old program's fate up in the air.
"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," the network said in a statement Friday.
"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 [her daughter] 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, Jan. 12. No further details will be announced at this time."
