Kathy Griffin will be bringing the funny to E!'s Fashion Police.

The very funny comedienne will serve as a new host, joining Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and another new panelist—celebrity stylist and TV personality Brad Goreski (It's a Brad Brad World).

Fashion Police has been on a hiatus following the passing of the beloved Joan Rivers on Sept. 4, and will return with 17 new episodes beginning Monday, January 12, 2015 with Golden Globes coverage.

"Not only was Joan a trailblazer, she was also a dear friend and mentor to Kathy, who will no doubt continue her legacy and do the series justice by bringing her own unique comedic style and tell-it-like-it-is personality to the host chair," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, E! "Plus, the addition of trendsetting stylist Brad completes the panel as the show begins its next chapter, which will focus on covering the major award shows and fashion events throughout the year." 

"Kathy just feels right, and Brad brings a fun, new voice to join Giuliana and Kelly in this ensemble," said Melissa Rivers, Executive Producer.  "I'm excited to see where this panel takes this series my mother so adored in this next incarnation."

And Kathy, per usual, tells it like it is about her new gig: "I get it! These are some big shoes I'm going to fill. Joan was truly one of a kind.  Now I hope you will accept me for me.  I'm just Kathy.  Did I say I'm just Kathy?  I meant I'm Kathy F***ing Griffin and you celebrities better strap yourself in, as I am taking no prisoners.  I am not holding back so DAMMIT let's have some fun!"

Join E!'s new Fashion Police foursome on Monday, January 12!
