In an interview with Access Hollywood, Queer Eye’s fashion expert and RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Carson Kressley expressed his interest in joining the panelists of Fashion Police.
After he was asked about his capacity to critique A-listers on red carpet events, Kressley said, “I’ve been around the block, so to speak, and I’ve, you know, done all the red carpets and I’ve worked with all these people and I have the chops to talk about what they’re actually wearing… I’m not really mean at all, but I could pretend to be,” Kressley said. He then jokingly told co-host Billy Bush “I hate what you’re wearing!”
However, the RuPaul Drag Race judge said that Joan Rivers is “irreplaceable.”
After the death of E!’s Fashion Police pioneer host Joan Rivers, it seems that the show is in now shambles.
The sudden death of Ms. Rivers forced the producers to find an immediate replacement. They chose Kathy Griffin to take Joan’s place in September 2014. Although Griffin is famous for being a comedienne, she and Joan have the same feisty attitude.
When the show was re-launched after Rivers’ departure, Brad Goreski, a celebrity fashion stylist and TV personality, replaced featured panelist George Kotsiopoulos and joined Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic.
Fashion Police was aired despite the tension among the old and new hosts. This was made worse when Rancic made a racial slur against Zendaya, a young R&B artist, during an episode of the program. Although Giuliana has apologized to which the young star has accepted, Kelly Osbourne, one of the pioneers made a public statement that she leaving the show. It was reported that her sudden decision has something to do with Rancic’s comments about Zendaya’s hair smelling patchouli oil and weed.
After Kelly left the show, Kathy Griffin also made an official statement stating that she is also leaving Fashion Police. This leaves Giuliana and Brad to host the show on their own on its return.
