Melissa Rivers Slams Kathy Griffin: She 'S--t All Over' Mom Joan Rivers' Legacy

Joan Rivers‘ daughter Melissa is opening up about Kathy Griffin‘s exit from Fashion Police – and things seem to be a bit tense.

“I’m just going to say it wasn’t a match on a lot of levels,” the 47-year-old television personality said about Kathy. “My biggest complaint was the feeling that she kind of sh*t all over my mother’s legacy in her statement on leaving. And I know that that was not an intentional reading of it, but that’s how I felt. But I know that wasn’t how it was intended.”

“Everything was so heightened and everybody was so crazy, but that was my takeaway by [Griffin] calling the comedy and the style of it old-fashioned,” Melissa added. “I understand what you’re doing — you’re trying to save yourself, but don’t crap all over my mother to do it, and that’s how I felt. They took the last thing I had and smashed it.”

The moment begins at 18:55. Watch below…

    I was so right ..did not think Kathy was a remotely decent replacement. Very disappointed when they chose her. I think they should have had a different guest to fill in each week…because Joan IS irreplaceable on FP. Fell apart just like I thought it would. Hope Melissa can figure out a new format that works.

    Kathy Griffin called up E! about the job before Joan was even cold. Griffin will always be a loser.

    Their mistake was trying to get a knock off Joan Rivers. That’s what Griffin is.

    Ahh… does anybody like Kathy Griffin? I think her & the Kardashians are the most hated people on the planet.

    Kathy Griffin thinks she was standing up for herself and women by taking a “stand” and leaving the show, a show she was well aware of what it was all about BEFORE she signed on, before Joan even died. I 100% a agree with Melissa, Kathy & even Kelly completely “shit” on Joan’s legacy. Everyone has said F’d up stuff on that show.. especially Joan but that’s what the show was. So Guiliana says one messed up thing and Kelly runs away to save herself and so did Kathy. I don’t even like Kathy to begin with and never thought she was right for the show at all.
