First, we heard about was Kelly Osbourne and now it’s Kathy Griffin who is next in line. The 54-year-old, just after 7 Episodes on the show, took to twitter to announce that since her style does not fit with the creative direction of the Fashion Police show, she has decided to move on.
Read what she said on Twitter:
