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…

Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen Disagree Over Kathy Griffin's 'Fashion Police' Exit - Watch Now!

Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen get in a bit of a disagreement over Kathy Griffin‘s Fashion Police exit while on Watch What Happens Live! on Wednesday evening (March 18) in New York City.

“I’m a huge Kathy Griffin fan. I want nothing but the best for Kathy,” Anderson, 47, said of Kathy, who he has often hosted his New Year’s special with for several years. “And I think she’s going to go on to bigger and better things.”

“I think it’s like the pot calling the kettle black,” Andy said. “She’s like, ‘Oh, I don’t want to make fun of anyone.’ This show’s about making fun of people. And the reason everyone loves Kathy Griffin is she makes fun of people constantly… I mean I love Kathy Griffin too! And I love her humor. But if it wasn’t working, then say it wasn’t working. I didn’t think it was working but don’t make it about the body shaming.”

“To be completely honest, I don’t understand some of the other folks who are on that show,” Anderson said. “I would watch that show for Kathy Griffin. Some of the other people, I was like: I don’t get why this person is on television.” He also added, “You love to stir it up.”

'Fashion Police' Put on Hiatus, Upcoming Episodes Scrapped

Fashion Police is being put on hiatus by E! and the three upcoming episodes that were scheduled to shoot in the spring are being scrapped.

The delay will give the show’s team time to recast the positions vacated by Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne, as well as reboot the franchise, according to THR.

“With the benefit of hindsight, we definitely brought it back too soon,” NBCUniversal Lifestyle Networks Group president Frances Berwick said.

“There’s a lot that’s frivolous about the whole Oscar, Emmy, Golden Globe parade, and then at the heart of it, there’s some great, creative work,” Frances added. “E! is not a network that takes itself seriously.”

Here is the network’s official statement: “E!’s comedy series Fashion Police is going on hiatus and will return in September. We look forward to taking this opportunity to refresh the show before the next awards season. Our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, along with Executive Producer Melissa Rivers, will continue their roles as we evolve the show into its next chapter for the legions of “Fashion Police” fans around the world.”

Kathy Griffin Opens Up About Her 'Fashion Police' Exit

Kathy Griffin steps out in New York City after making an appearance on The View to discuss her Fashion Police exit on Monday (March 16).

“I did a statement because I felt like Fashion Police just wasn’t the thing for me. My style is improvisational and off the cuff, and they have a formula that worked so well with Joan [Rivers], and so well for so long, and it just didn’t fit my thing. And after a while, I kind of felt like I was being forced to comment about pictures of beautiful women in perfect dresses, and say kind of bad things. … As a feminist and a comic, it just didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” Kathy said. “It’s a little different than what felt to me sort of like a dog-pile. I was hoping we could talk about the events themselves and the shows, so I didn’t want to say that Meryl Streep didn’t look great, because she looked great. So sometimes it felt disingenuous to me. … But certainly, in my repertoire, I’ve said heinous things — I’m well aware of that, trust me!”

Kathy also mentioned that Lena Dunham wrote her original statement to announce she quit. “I was going up against a big corporation, and I’m scared and I’m nervous… it’s a male-dominated industry.”

Kathy also went on Howard Stern‘s show that day as well. Listen to the interview below..
