Troubled 'Fashion Police' Goes on Hiatus

Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski Set to Return With the Show This Fall

By Published on .

E!'s "Fashion Police" is taking another break following the departure of hosts Kelly Osbourne and newcomer Kathy Griffin. But the network promises the show, which has turned the bashing of celebrity fashion into sport, will return next fall, perhaps with a new look and feel.

This season of "Fashion Police" will be cut short, with E! choosing not to air a planned three more episodes. Giuliana Rancic and stylist Brad Goreski will remain on board as hosts and will return with the show in September for the Emmy Awards, the company said. Executive producer Melissa Rivers will also continue.

E! is considering finding additional co-hosts or reconfiguring the show.

"Fashion Police" has all but fallen apart since the death of comedian Joan Rivers in September. After taking a hiatus, it returned in January for awards season with the addition of Kathy Griffin. But Ms. Griffin's time filling Ms. Rivers' seat was short-lived, with the comedian announcing she would leave after just seven episodes.

Ms. Osbourne had already left, not long after Ms. Rancic incurred a storm of criticism over an Oscar-night joke that Disney star Zendaya, who appeared in dreadlocks, might have smelled "like weed."

"Fashion Police" has been a mainstay on E! since it bowed in September 2010.
