Kathy Griffin to Fill Joan Rivers' Spot on Fashion Police?

by at .

When Joan Rivers passed away earlier this month at the age of 81, many wondered if her cultishly popular E! series, Fashion Police, would continue on without her. 

Fortunately, for fans of style and snarky commentary, E! announced last week that Fashion Police will return for another season.

Following the announcement, of course, another big question loomed: who would take on the unenviable task of filling the huge, chic shoes of Ms. Rivers?

Well, we may have our answer today, as multiple outlets are reporting that Kathy Griffin will join the show as the fourth co-host on the panel.

Griffin has apparently already cleared one major hurdle by receiving the blessing of Joan's daughter, Melissa Rivers:

"Kathy has been told is she wants the job she can have it, because Melissa wanted someone her mother would approve of," a source close to the show tells The Daily Mail. "Kathy will probably take the position, but they are still working out the deal."

With her taste for off-color humor, and history of feuding with celebs (Griffin recently landed in hot water after calling Demi Lovato a "douche"), Griffin is clearly a student of the Joan Rivers school of comedy.

While no one could ever take Joan's place, we're sure the comedy legend would be proud to see one of her proteges help to keep her beloved series on the air.
