Kathy Griffin was never one to hold her tongue, now the comedian is confirming that E! offered her Joan RiversFashion Police position after she passed in September. Griffin revealed:

“They did offer it to me. I don’t know if the situation is correct at this time for me. Whatever they do, I really hope that they continue in the spirit of Joan’s work. She brought a fearlessness and a brand of humor into our homes that we really need.”

When Joan Rivers slipped into a coma a few months ago, rumors swirled that Griffin was a shoo-in to replace her. At the time, Griffin was furious about rumors that she was gunning for the Fashion Police job while Rivers was in a coma. She tweeted:

“It’s not true… I thought I’d heard it all, but that [rumor] hurts because it’s as far from the truth as you can get. I would never take Joan’s job.”

Maybe she’ll have a change of heart and join Guiliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne.
