"My style does not fit with the creative direction of the show"
It looks like the fallout from the offensive comments made by co-host Giuliana Rancic about Zendaya‘s hair on the E! show Fashion Police continues to wreak havoc for the show because late last night night, new co-host Kathy Griffin went and quit the show. Kathy posted a lengthy message on her official Twitter profile outlining her reasons for quitting the show just about two weeks after fellow co-host Kelly Osbourne quit the show. Kathy, as you may know, was brought on as a host of Fashion Police to replace the late Joan Rivers who passed away last year. But after only 7 episodes as new co-host, Kathy has decided to leave the show because, she says, she does not what her “comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference“.

Yesterday we learned the somewhat surprising news that Rosie O’Donnell has decided to leave her job as co-host of The View, divorce her wife of three years Michelle Rounds and star in an HBO stand up comedy special — all at the same time. Rosie made an in-person press appearance yesterday at a screening of her new HBO special Rosie O’Donnell: A Heartfelt Stand Up and made herself available to answer questions about her professional and private life.

So … Rosie O’Donnell is going through a few changes right now … pretty much all at the same time. After Rosie quit co-hosting The View all those years ago, ABC inexplicably thought it would be a great idea to bring her back as co-host for the current season of the show. Today we learn that Rosie has decided to quit The View — again. Not only is Rosie quitting the TV show but she is also quitting her most recent marriage to Michelle Rounds. They are dunzo. It’s unclear which break-up came first, with The View or with wife Michelle, but it sounds like Rosie is leaving The View to spend time with her children in the wake of the end of her marriage. The positive news, depending on how you look at it, is that Rosie will be starring in a new HBO stand up comedy special titled A Hearfelt Stand Up just one day after she leaves The View. She may be ending a project and a marriage but bully her for starring in a new stand up comedy special. More »
