In an interview with ABC News, Giuliana Rancic, 40, opened up about the recent death of Joan Rivers along with revealing the future of E! series “Fashion Police.”
“They are looking at different scenarios, whether it moves forward or it doesn’t,” Rancic tells ABC News. “Melissa [Rivers]…a lot of that will be up to her and how she’s feeling and how she decides what she wants to do, along with the execs here at E! There is no word now…they are seeing what Fashion Police looks like without Joan.”
Melissa Rivers is an executive director for the program. Rivers’ only child is still grieving and hasn’t yet focused on Fashion Police’s future, Rancic said.
“A part of me is like, Joan would want Melissa and us and the team to go on and I know she would, but it’s just a matter of can there be a show without Joan?” Giuliana explained. “Do we want to do a Fashion Police without Joan? I don’t know.”
Rancic said she’s going to miss being on set with the comedy legend, with whom she worked for 13 years.
“I still think she’s going to walk through the door and yell, ‘Giuliana, get back to work.’ And it’s hard to wrap my mind around never seeing her again. And I’ve experienced losing loved ones in my life and for some reason, this one is very different,” Rancic said. “You hear people say, ‘He or she was larger than life.’ Joan really was larger than life. I think that’s a reason I can’t imagine her gone.”
