Kathy Griffin reportedly replacing the late Joan Rivers as host of E!’s Fashion Police

Kathy Griffin may have been the only choice to replace the late Joan Rivers as host of E!’s Fashion Police, but reportedly it’s now a done deal.

TMZ reported Tuesday that E! and Melissa Rivers had reached an agreement with Griffin to take over as host when Fashion Police returns for the 2015 Golden Globes in January. According to the report, the show no longer would air weekly — just for awards and other major red-carpet opportunities.

Still no word on whether Rivers and the show would settle its longstanding strike with its writers.
