Last night saw the triumphant return of ‘Fashion Police’ as they chatted about celebrity fashion at the MTV VMAs. It opened with a skit of Melissa Rivers on her hands and knees, saying she was still “cleaning up messes” as she rolled over the carpet with a lint roller. She then lifted up the lint roller to show purple and red hair: the same hair colors as departed show co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin. However, Kelly, at least, didn’t seem to take offense at the joke.
Kelly and Melissa shared this exchange on twitter:

Kathy Griffin hasn’t had anything to say about ‘Fashion Police’ on twitter.
Did you watch the return of ‘Fashion Police’ last night? I have to say, I enjoyed both of their guests: NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho. Margaret even joked about Miley Cyrus’s hair (the long braids she wore):
That hair probably smelled like pot.”
Giuliana Rancic seemed to be careful after the backlash she experienced over her joke about Zendaya’s dreadlocks, but who can blame her for that? Brad Goreski had his usual great insights; I completely agreed with his point that Miley Cyrus should find something else to do, style-wise, than try to show as much skin as possible. It’s OLD.
Overall, I thought it worked out well with Melissa serving as host. She even seemed to look more like her mother, the late Joan Rivers, than ever before. What did you think about the return of ‘Fashion Police’? Here’s the opening skit:
