EXCLUSIVEKathy Griffin will be Joan Rivers' replacement on "Fashion Police" ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the show tell TMZ it's a done deal. Kathy will join Melissa Rivers, Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic. We don't know the fate of George Kotsiopoulos.
We're told the show will no longer be a weekly series. E! will roll it out during awards shows and other occasions as event programming.
One silver lining ... the drapes will now match the carpet for sure.
