According to a new report, sources connected with E!’s hit program have confirmed that Kathy, 54, has officially signed on to replace Joan Rivers and will join the panel of commentators alongside the late comedienne’s daughter, Melissa Rivers.

With the addition of both Kathy and Melissa, 46, as co-hosts, the show will allegedly also undergo a format change from a weekly series to a show focusing primarily on special events and award show fashion.
The news of Kathy’s commitment to ‘Fashion Police’ comes just weeks after ‘Closer’ reported the comedienne had been offered the gig.
“They did make me an offer, but I don’t know if it’s the right thing or the right situation,” Kathy previously told ‘Closer’ at an event in Beverly Hills on Nov. 3. “But I do think it is going to continue in some way. In the tradition of my pal Joan Rivers.”
TMZ first reported this news.
