Kathy Griffin and Fashion Police are no longer a thing and she’s slamming the TV show as a “dog pile” that “felt disingenuous to me.” Ouch Kathy! Kathy stopped by The View and said, “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 added.
She said that standup is different…”you’re kind of vulnerable — you’re there with a microphone and the audience, and you’re hoping to take this audience on a ride. It’s a little different than what felt to me sort of like a dog pile. Right now, on the red carpet, all these women look so great. 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!”
She’s really burning that bridge now—isn’t she. But she does go on to say that they the producers at Fashion Police were nice about her leaving and it seems she had made a decision to leave even before Kelly decided to step down.
