"Fashion Police," the beleagured red carpet critique program, has suffered another blow. After that whole Giuliana Rancic/Zendaya Coleman/Kelly Osbournedisaster, the host of the show has now departed. Kathy Griffin, who took over from the late Joan Rivers earlier this year, announced on Twitter that she's had enough of the show. She had only hosted 7 episodes in that time, but from her statement, it sounds like it was a pretty frustrating time, with people dissatisfied she wasn't doing the same show Rivers had done. Griffin certainly left little room for a return, as she called out the program for lacking context in its critiques of the way women look, a point driven home by her pointed reference to being a feminist.
To recap, two hosts have quit in the last couple of weeks because they found the program both racist and misogynist. How much longer will "Fashion Police" stagger on at this point? Griffin's full statement is below, and E! gave the following statement to Buzzfeed:
"“We wish her all the best and are grateful for her time on the show, as well as the many laughs that she gave us all. Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30 at 9 p.m. with our talented co-Hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski and executive producer Melissa Rivers. No further information is available at this time.”
