Could NeNe Leakes be stepping into Joan Rivers’ shoes? If reports are correct, she may at least be getting her chairâ€¦ on the Fashion Police.
According to a source talking to Perezhilton.com, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is now getting serious consideration. Part of the reason is because the showâ€™s execs think Leakes has great comic timing. The other reason, the showâ€™s network is looking to ethnically diversify their panel.
After Joan Riversâ€™s tragic death earlier this month many speculated that the celeb fashion critique program would go off the air. But soon after, it was confirmed that the Fashion Police would roll on. This despite many of the current panelists thinking the show should end with Joanâ€™s passing.
But NeNe wonâ€™t get the spot without a battle. The source also says that comedy giant Kathy Griffin is also up for the spot.
