Margaret Cho is set to co-host “Fashion Police” for its new season starting Jan. 11.
The comedian will join Melissa Rivers, Guiliana Rancic and Brad Goreski on the panel to talk red carpet fashion for the Golden Globe Awards, SAG Awards, Grammys and Oscars. The show will air 8 p.m. ET/PT the day after each award show.
Cho, 47, made previous appearances on the show as a guest panelist. She told the Hollywood Reporter that she is excited to join the panel.
“I love joining the crew of Fashion Police,” Cho says. “To me it feels like family. Although I am not quite a fashionista, I would love to look at it like I am changing it up — Fashion Police: Special Victims Unit. It makes me happiest to spend time with Melissa, and when I see her laugh at my joke, I feel like Joan (Rivers) is smiling, somewhere.”
The panel has had a turbulent run since the death of Joan Rivers last year. Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne both abruptly departed the show. The fashion show was also forced into a hiatus after Rancic’s comments about teen star Zendaya’s dreadlocks at the Oscars.
