Joan’s daughter Melissa E!’s Fashion Police will go on despite her mom’s passing. “Yes, Fashion Police will continue, ” she said, “We’re going to hit pause for a little while, but Fashion Police will be back in January.”
Did you think they were going to let go of this venue just because the woman who gave it life is gone? Not a chance. Life must go on, folks, and E!’s Fashion Police is part of life. maybe not a part of life we’re proud of, and if it were a body part we’d probably wear pants over it, but it’s there, and it makes money, so it gets to stay.
The E! network said the same thing, basically, but with nicer words: “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.”
Yes, it’s what Joan would have wanted. Because she cares, wherever she is. She continues to care.
So there you have it, “Fashion Police will return in 2015, ” the E! statement assures us, “commencing with Golden Globes coverage on Monday, January 12.”
