It would appear that earlier reports as to the demise of the E! network’s show “Fashion Police” were greatly exaggerated. Mellissa Rivers has reportedly been tapped to take her late mother Joan Rivers’ place on a revamped version of the show.

Fashion Police has gone through one hell of a Roller Coaster ride since its main host Joan Rivers died suddenly last fall. First comedian Kathy Griffin was tapped as Rivers’ replacement. Then Kelly Osbourne abruptly quit just after the Oscars in March, accusing co-host Giuliana Rancic of having made racist comments.

Finally Griffin left and Melissa Rivers accused her of “Shitting” on her mother’s legacy.

The behind the scenes drama related to the show was better than any of the back stabbing seen on so called reality programming.

Now the Daily News reports that Melissa Rivers has signed on for 6 new episodes. The paper quoted a “well placed source” saying, “Melissa’s going on. She is so happy, she is excited. The idea actually came from her. The bosses like it. It’ll be a tribute to her mom, and Melissa’s the one who understands how it’s done. She can pull it off.”

Meanwhile, the younger Rivers opened up about her mother’s death and writing the New York Times best seller “The Book of Joan, ” while appearing on CNN on what would have been her mother’s 82nd birthday.

Melissa said, “It was terrifying and daunting at the beginning. But it forced me to sit down at every writing session and think about funny things. So it was almost forced laughter therapy.”

On her malpractice lawsuit against the doctors who killed her mother, Rivers said, “What’s most important to me is that what happened, what allegedly happened, doesn’t happen again. It’s not just about my mother, it’s about moving forward.”
