Melissa Rivers Accuses Kathy Griffin of Damaging Joan’s Legacy

Melissa Rivers Accuses Kathy Griffin of Damaging Joan’s Legacy

Melissa Rivers, daughter of the late beloved comedian Joan Rivers, has been making the rounds to advertise and promote her new book titled, "The Book of Joan."

In an interview with the "Today" show's Hoda Kotb at the 92nd Street Y in New York, Rivers commented on the departure of Kathy Griffin Joan’s old show "Fashion Police."

Rivers said, "My biggest complaint was the feeling that she kind of shit all over my mother's legacy in her statement on leaving. And I know that that was not an intentional reading of it, but that's how I felt ...That was my takeaway, by [her] calling the comedy and the style of it old-fashioned. It's like, I understand what you're doing, you're trying to save yourself, but don't crap all over my mother to do it."

Soon after Joan Rivers’ death, Griffin got onboard the show. However she departed in Marcg, after appearing on a mere seven episodes. At that time, Griffin tweeted, "I have discovered my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show and now it’s time to move on." Melissa Rivers is one of the executive producers for the show.

After controversy arose over Giuliana Rancic’s offensive comments regarding Zendaya's dreadlocks during an episode about the Oscars, her co-host of “Fashion Police,” Kelly Osboure went her separate way. Soon after her exit, the comedian Griffin followed her out.

Rivers expressed that she the comments Griffin made very personally, during her interview with Kotb. "But as a professional, that was her choice, that's what she did. No harm, no foul, moving on."

On the topic of Rancic’s comments about Zendaya's hair, Rivers responded, "If something like that had happened and my mother had been alive, her reaction immediately would have been, 'Oh, please, all this over a wig?' Literally, it was a wig! Let's just all relax."
