Kathy Griffin’s Email To Celebrity Friends RE: Quitting Fashion Police
Kathy Griffin announced last week on social media that she was leaving Fashion Police.
Kathy's statement does not mention the recent controversy that surrounded the show where Giuliana Rancic was slammed for making racist comments against Zendaya's hair, resulting in Kelly Osbourne leaving the show.
It was eventually revealed that the joke was written by a Fashion Police writer and was not Rancic's own opinion.
E! confirmed Griffin's departure with the below statement, reports Buzzfeed.
“We wish her all the best and are grateful for her time on the show, as well as the many laughs that she gave us all. Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30 at 9 p.m. with our talented co-Hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski and executive producer Melissa Rivers. No further information is available at this time.”
Now an email has been leaked between Griffin and an undisclosed recipient regarding her recent depature from the show.
The email was sent March 12th, with the subject line reading, "I need you."
Here’s why I need you…
I went live with the following statement on my social media platforms this evening. I’m reaching out to you because I think you will understand why I have made this decision and I am asking for your support via Twitter, etc. IF you are comfortable. I admire you & your work and hope that you can stand by me. Once again, IF you are comfortable. Oh, and I am nervous and scared about this…in case you’re wondering :wink:
