We all totally saw this one coming, but TMZ is reporting that comedienne, Kathy Griffin, will be taking over for the late Joan Rivers (may she rest in peace) as host of E!'s Fashion Police.

Joan Rivers passed away this past September. Immediately following her death, rumours of who would replace the beloved comedy icon on her hit program started to circulate the internet.

Griffin and Rivers were long time friends and often appeared on each other's reality shows. It is no surprise that Melissa has offered the Fashion Police hosting gig to Griffin. No word as to whether Kelly Osbourne will return to the show. More details to follow.

2014 has been a very difficult year for the Rivers family. Melissa Rivers is currently involved in a wrongful death lawsuit against the clinic where her mother went into cardiac arrest.
