A comedian whose name was among the first to be mentioned as a possible replacement for the late Joan Rivers on E!’s “Fashion Police” says she has been offered the job.
“They did offer it to me,” Kathy Griffin told Access Hollywood, adding that she wasn’t sure she would be able to accept the offer. “I don’t know if the situation is correct at this time for me or right for me at this time,” Griffin said.
Following Rivers’ death earlier this year, E! decided to move forward with the program and is searching for a replacement, as previously reported. Griffin had been reported to be on the shortlist of potential replacements.
