Melissa Rivers: Kathy Griffin Sh-t on My Mother's Legacy!

by at .

Now that the dust has settled from the bizarre Giuliana Rancic-Zendaya debacle, one of the stars who was indirectly involved is speaking out for the first time.

As you may recall, there were concerns that the E! series Fashion Police wouldn't be able to keep up its signature brand of gleefully below-the-belt snark and red carpet fashion commentary following the death of Joan Rivers. 

The new cast proved the critics right within weeks, as Kelly Osbourne quit as a direct result of the Zendaya controversy, and Kathy Griffin followed suit shortly thereafter.

As the final insult to Rivers' brash, ballsy legacy, they both threw Rancic and the show itself under the bus before departing, with Griffin describing Fashion Police as a "dog-pile of anti-feminism."

Now, Melissa Rivers is speaking out about Griffin's burnt-bridge departure for the first time, and as you might've guess, she isn't happy:

"My biggest complaint was that she kind of sh-t all over my mother's legacy in her leaving statement," Rivers said. "I understand what you're doing. You're trying to save yourself, but don't crap all over my mother."

Wow. Looks like she inherited her mother's talent for telling it like it is.

Not surprisingly, Griffin could not be reached for comment.
