It’s been confirmed, NeNe Leakes will join E!’s FashionPolice and will take a seat alongside Melissa Rivers, Brad Goreski and Giuliana Rancic.
The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star confirmed the big news on her blog Wednesday morning in a post titled: Making Joan Proud:
“I’m honored to sit next to @mel_rivers on Monday for #FashionPolice as she takes her mom seat for the very first time. Joan gave me some great career advice one day while I was there co-hosting and I have never forgotten her words! Tune in MONDAY to E and catch us readdddd these girls fashions hunni from the VMA’s red carpet #lifeofnene #makingjoanproud #VMAS #FP #E.”
NeNe appeared as a guest host several times on past seasons and clearly becomes a fan fave.
FP first hit airwaves back in September 2010 with Joan Rivers, Giuliana Rancic, George Kotsiopoulos and Kelly Osbourne. Following the death of Rivers in September 2014, the show brought on Kathy Griffin to proceed the late comedian and hired Goreski to take the place of Kotsiopoulos.
In February 2015, Osbourne announced her departure from the hit fashion series and just one month later, Griffin announced she too was stepping down. The network announced the show would return in September 2015 after they figure out the best way to revamp the popular program.
The new season will premiere on August 31 for only six episodes.
