Kathy Griffin: 'Joan Rivers Left Some Large Shoes To Fill'

Kathy Griffin has been tasked with hosting “Fashion Police” following the untimely death of its host Joan Rivers. She knows the big deal placed on the job because she has said that Joan has left some pretty large shoes to fill.

“This was a job that was held by our dear friend Joan Rivers,” Griffin said in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday, Dec. 9. “I understand I have some very, very large shoes to fill.”

Rivers led the E! show from its inception in 2010, until the last episode this past August before her death. The Emmy-winning star passed away on Sept. 4 at the age of 81 after complications from a surgical procedure.

“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.”

There were rumors floating around that suggested that Kelly Osbourne was flabbergasted to learn about how much Kathy was making to replace Joan. Was Kathy Griffin a good choice in replacing the legendary comedienne? Have your say in the comments section below.

Kathy Griffin Is Replacing Joan Rivers On ‘Fashion Police’

Kathy Griffin Is Replacing Joan Rivers On 'Fashion Police'

Kathy Griffin will be taking over the reins on “Fashion Police” from deceased legendary comedienne Joan Rivers. A good choice for the role or nah?

Kathy Griffin will be Joan Rivers’ replacement on “Fashion Police” … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the show tell TMZ it’s a done deal. Kathy will join Melissa Rivers, Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic. We don’t know the fate of George Kotsiopoulos.

We’re told the show will no longer be a weekly series. E! will roll it out during awards shows and other occasions as event programming.

No one could really ever replace Joan Rivers in anything, but since the network wasn’t left with a choice in the matter, they have picked wisely. Kathy is great and funny and I am sure she will do nicely on the show. Kathy admired Joan and we’re sure she’ll do the show justice.

What do you think of the announcement?

Joan Rivers’ Clinic Was Obviously Negligent In Her Treatment

Joan Rivers' Clinic Was Obviously Negligent In Her Treatment

The clinic where Joan Rivers received treatment last was obviously negligent in that they were lacking certain things that could have saved the comedienne’s life.

According to the report, one of the offenses included not being weighed before the procedure, which is required before administering anesthesia, in this case Propofol. In addition, the investigation, which was conducted by the New York State Dept. of Health, also found that Rivers only signed a consent form for the endoscopy, not the laryngoscopy, which was performed by the comedian’s personal physician, who did not have medical privileges at the clinic.

Melissa Rivers’s attorneys responded in a statement: “Our client, Melissa Rivers, is terribly disappointed to learn of the multiple failings on the part of medical personnel and the clinic as evidenced by the CMS report. As any of us would be, Ms. Rivers is outraged by the misconduct and mismanagement now shown to have occurred before, during and after the procedure.”

In addition, the clinic lacked a drug that would’ve stopped her vocal cords from spasm’ing and also a pulse oximeter used for monitoring her vital signs.

Melissa Rivers Isn’t Suing For The Money; She Wants Answers

Melissa Rivers Isn't Suing For The Money; She Wants Answers

Joan Rivers passed away on September 4th after having what she thought was routine throat surgery. Since, no one has really owned up for any mistakes made causing her untimely death. Since, we’ve learned that her daughter Melissa was suing everyone involved. Some have called it a money grab, but Melissa doesn’t actually need the money and only wants answers.

As you might have heard, Melissa inherited $100 million from her late mother’s estate and doesn’t need any lawsuit money to live comfortably for the rest of her life. Like any daughter, she wants answers.

A source close to Melissa said, “It’s not about the money. For Melissa, this about getting an answer about why this happened and making sure it never happens again. The only way to get these answers is to file a lawsuit. Melissa wants answers, not money.”

The insider added, “This shouldn’t have happened. It was a completely treatable and avoidable complication.”
