Rumor Alert: NeNe Leakes To Replace Joan Rivers On E!'s Fashion Police?

According to a new report, NeNe Leakes is at the front of the line to replace Rivers on E!’s Fashion Police. A source on said the outrageous The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is now getting serious consideration because she has great comic timing — and also, E! is looking to diversify their panel with a different ethnicity.

While the investigation into Rivers’ shocking death continues, E! confirmed that her Fashion Police legacy would live on. The network announced the show would return to air — but not until next year.

The network said it’s what the comic legend, whose daughter Melissa Rivers is a Fashion Police producer, would have wanted.

Although Rivers’ fellow comedienne and friend, Kathy Griffin, is also a front runner to replace her, the web site said Leakes could be in the driver’s seat.

While the source said Leakes could be an excellent fit, as Radar Online has reported that the entire cast of Fashion Police wasn’t in favor of the show returning to the air at all.

Kelly Osbourne, 29, “feels that it is pointless to continue on with the show. Kelly says that anyone that you try replace Joan Rivers with will fail miserably,” a source told Radar.

Fashion Police is also hosted by Giuliana Rancic, 40, and George Kotsiopoulos, 45.
