Joan & Melissa Replaced By "Dancing" Fembot

4/18/2007 3:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The TV Guide Channel has replaced veteran red carpet fashion mavens Joan & Melissa Rivers with Lisa Rinna! Who will you be wearing?

Rinna has signed a multi-year contract with the network, which will see the former "Dancing with the Stars" booty shaker hosting five red carpet pre-shows and five fashion recap shows, beginning with the Emmy Awards in September. TV Guide says they chose Rinna because, "In addition to being an established TV star, she also has fashion expertise as both a business person and commentator, so she is a great fit for this role and for our brand." Lisa owns two L.A. area boutiques called Belle Gray.

The network released a statement saying, "TV Guide Channel is very appreciative of Joan and Melissa Rivers' contributions to the success of our Red Carpet programming over the past three years. We wish them the best in their future endeavors." Snap!

While it is not known where the mother/daughter team will end up next, Joan Rivers, through a rep, told TMZ, "I will tell you my true feelings and experiences, as soon as we finalize our new deal." Can we talk?!

Joan, who invented red carpet fashion reporting as we know it, and daughter Melissa had been with TV Guide since January 2005, after leaving E!

The plastic surgeon who did her lip job should have his/her license revoked! I couldn't believe how stupid her lips looked on Dancing With The Stars!

Some people have entirely too much time and money on their hands. She should have taken the money it cost for the cosmetic surgery on her lips and donated it to charity!

Lisa (LIPS) Rina: I can't stand to look at her. She must get restlin injections on a weekly basis. Her claim to "fame" is being married to Harry Hamblin - a washed up, has been actor. At least Joan Rivers is funny. BIG MISTAKE! But then, who watched that channel anyway? Who gives a crap about celebrities and what freebie clothes they wear or what they think??????????

Lisa Rinna will definitely be an improvement over those two boobs, but what in the world did she do to her lips!

thank the Lord Melissa and Joan wont be saying ugly things anymore about peoples clothes. What anyone wears is their taste and their business, . who in the heck are Joan and her daughter to criticize people ? who made these two an expert on fashion? the only thing these two are expert in is insulting the living daylights out of people who for the most part dont deserve it.

What a slap in the face.No problem though.If there's any damage, Joan can just get a touch up at her annual facelift.

Poor Melissa! She simply can not do ANYTHING without her mother getting jobs for her! Melissa, you should be embarrassed girl. I meanWHO changes their name to RIVERS AFTER their father dies?? Melissa, you must think you need Joan's name to get you in teh spotlight..................and you're RIGHT...you do.

Joan looks way better at her age then Melissa ever could. Sad really...

I am no Anna Nicole Smith fan.

But when I last saw Joan Rivers she was doing a red carpet show, days after Anna Nicole had died.

That nasty woman said the vilest things anyone has ever said about another person.

I actually felt like vomiting.

I strongly suspect this is what got that sorry excuse for a human being fired.
