‘Fashion Police’ Co-star George Kotsiopoulos Responds To Joan Rivers’ Death

fashion-policeGeorge Kotsiopoulos, Joan Rivers’ “Fashion Police” co-host, took to Twitter to pay tribute to Rivers after the comedian passed away Thursday at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Rivers’ death at age 81 came after complications from throat surgery last week. Her daughter, Melissa, announced Rivers’ death after she was removed from life support. The comedian leaves a legacy of more than five decades of brutal, no-holds-barred comedy that pushed the limits for women in comedy and on television.

Rivers was famous for her fashion commentary and celebrity gossip, both making fun of and reporting on fashion trends and celebrity wardrobe choices. She appeared on E! and TV Guide, as well as other channels, numerous times to report from red carpet events and award shows. She also hosted the show “Fashion Police” on E! with Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos.

Kotsiopoulos tweeted an emotional response to the comedian’s death, thanking Rivers for her impact on his life:

‘Rest in peace @Joan_Rivers. Thank you for changing my life. I will miss you so much.’ — George Kotsiopoulos (@GeorgeKotsi)

He also uploaded the image and message below on his instagram page as a tribute to the feisty Hollywood legend.insta

Rest In Peace, Joan. I for one will terribly miss your caustic sense of humour. Whatever part of the afterlife you find yourself, please don’t give the peeps over there too much of a hard time with your scathing wit.

    She’s a symbol of resilience, and the perfect epitome of comebacks, her husband commited suicide, her career failed at some point and she went through bankrupcy and every singlr time she back from it even stronger.
    Like Mellisa Rivers said, although its hard to laugh now, Joan would want us all to go back to what she spent her life doing, laughing.
    RIP Joan. You’ll be missed.

      She WILL be missed. A number of celebrities I really like hav died in d past couple of years, but Joan’s own just pain me reach bone marrow! I didn’t even realise I liked her that much until I found myself literally praying to God to save her when she first had issues during/after that surgery.

    I recently started watching Fashion Police. Much as my aunt always claimed to dislike Joan, she wud always tune in and we wud laugh uproariously at every quip about sagging careers, tits n scrotums Joan tossed in. She will be hard to replace.

      Oh I doubt she can be replaced at all. That charm to Joan’s witticism is that she is fearless and unapologetic. She slammed the wardrobe choices of celebrities with fear or favour. The others on the show always tried to be politically correct and oh-so-polite. Not Joan Rivers. I doubt you can find such a brutally honest person to replace her on the show.

    Just wondering what would become of FP. I don’t see who would make it as fun as Joan did.
