According to Radar Online, Nene Leakes is a front-runner for replacing Joan Rivers on Fashion Police. E! is supposedly looking to Leakes for her comic timing, her big personality, and they’re looking for a different ethnicity on the panel.

As far as Leakes’ fashion repertoire goes, Radar reports that she qualifies as a fashion voice because:

In addition to making reality fans laugh on RHOA, Leakes, 46, launched a clothing line for HSN which was a smashing success. Most of the clothes in her NeNe Leakes Collection sold out in a day.

Kathy Griffin is also a front-runner for the position, but can anyone ever really replace a legend like Joan Rivers? According to Fashion Police star Kelly Osbourne, they can’t. Radar Online reports that:

She feels that it is pointless to continue on with the show. Kelly says that anyone that you try replace Joan Rivers with will fail miserably.

The Stir writes:

On the one hand, the outspoken NeNe is perfect. When it comes to outrageous shoes and bags and accessories, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant knows her stuff. We’ve never seen her with a single hair out of place or her nails undone. Like Joan, she isn’t the type to hold back when she has an opinion. In fact, the show’s producers will probably have to ask her to temper her comments about other celebs.

Melissa Rivers and the rest of the E! family feel that Rivers would want the show to go on, which is why the show will return in January.

Hey gotta agree with you so sad THEY will not have ME viewing. I’m just not alone in this REALLY the best u can do really JOAN RIVERS replaced with NeNe, WISHING FOR A TRULY UNIQUE WOMAN. WAY OFF THE MARK WITH HER. THANKS E!

This maybe interesting, I hope whomever gets the seat that the other cast members are open and give the person a chance. Under the circumstances and their very close relationship with Joan it may at first be a little difficult. But hey, they’re all professionals. However, Nene in my opinion has a wonderful eye for fashion, wears her clothing well and if given the chance I believe she’ll work hard at fulfilling the demand. Best wishes Nene I hope your given the chance!
