Stars of ‘Fashion Police’ Vow to Carry On Joan Rivers’ Legacy


For Melissa Rivers and her son Cooper, healing from the grief that accompanies the loss of a parent and beloved grandparent like Joan Rivers is taking many forms. Because Joan was known for her humor, however, Melissa has one special wish for her 13-year-old son. And that’s to help him heal through laughter, inquisitr.com said,

Cooper adored his grandmother, who he dubbed Nana New Face. He appeared with Melissa and Joan on the Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? reality show, the website said.

Prior to her death, Joan revealed that her grandson’s sense of humor caused them to bond. “(Cooper has) a great sense of humor. I don’t know if it’s mine but that was how we first connected.”

But Cooper and Melissa aren’t alone in continuing to mourn Joan’s passing. Kelly Osbourne, who co-starred on “Fashion Police” with the comedienne, is anxious about continuing the show without Rivers, she told Us Weekly.

Asked to pay tribute to her memory of Joan on the show, Osbourne couldn’t control her tears. “I’m excited but terrified at the same time. Change isn’t fun, but it has to happen, ” she said.

The changes planned for “Fashion Police” include more mourning Joan. Kathy Griffin, who was a close friend of Joan’s, will replace her. Completing the game of musical co-stars chairs, stylist Brad Goreski will take over for the exiting George Kotsiopoulos. And viewers can look for Melissa Rivers to continue her role as executive producer, the website said.

As for the format, “Fashion Police” will no longer air weekly. Instead, the co-hosts will focus on 17 episodes in 2015 that are scheduled to feature red carpet events such as the Emmy Awards and Oscars ceremony, according to the website.

To those who are perturbed that Kathy will take over for Joan, Griffin emphasizes that the two had joked about the possibility, and thus she feels that Rivers would love the fact that she’s taking this opportunity to critique the rich and famous just like Joan. She even strutted her fashionista sensibility by providing Jimmy Kimmel with tips, the website said.

Griffin is definitely aware that she has “very, very large shoes to fill, ” when replacing Rivers, who hosted the show from its start in 2010 until she passed away in September, Hollywood Life said.

“In her honor, I will not be holding back, ” Griffin said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “I am giving no passes, I am going to let people have it, I’m gonna bring the hammer down.”

The new season starts on January 12.
