Margaret Cho Joins E! ‘Fashion Police’ As Co-Host

Margaret Cho is joining E!’s “Fashion Police” as a special guest host when the show returns in 2016. Before her more regular gig, Cho had appeared as a celebrity guest on the fashion gab-fest.

Cho’s addition follows this year’s long-running talent shuffle, which saw the exits of host Kathy Griffin and co-host Kelly Osbourne, after Joan Rivers’ death in September 2014.

With Cho on board, the “Fashion Police” panel is complete with the return of Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski and Melissa Rivers. Each episode, the foursome will be joined by a celebrity guest, as had been implemented in the latter half of this year, following Griffin and Osbourne’s departures.

After the talent shuffle had passed, Rancic spoke to Variety about the show’s evolution since Rivers’ passing. “Melissa is a natural fit and did an incredible job of moderating the show and also bringing the funny,” Rancic said. “You can instantly see she’s her mother’s daughter. I am so impressed by Melissa’s performance and am confident Joan is smiling down on her and so proud of how terrific she is as the new co-host.”

Though the longtime “E! News” anchor is no longer at the helm of the nightly entertainment news show, Rancic continues to host E! “Live From the Red Carpet” award show specials, in addition to working on “Fashion Police.” For the Golden Globes on Jan. 10, she will co-host with Ryan Seacrest. As for “E! News,” Rancic’s former co-anchor Terrence Jenkins just announced this week that he would be leaving the show, effective immediately.

Aside from their on-camera hosting duties, Rivers is an exec producer on “Fashion Police” and Rancic is a consulting producer.

Cho is heading into a busy 2016, as Amazon just announced this week the development of a hourlong pot-centric dramedy centering around the comedian, titled “Highland.”

“Fashion Police” returns with Golden Globes coverage on Jan. 11, the day after the award show.
