Following last week's surprise announcement that Kathy Griffin would resign as host of E!'s controversial series "Fashion Police" after only seven episodes, the network has confirmed that it's putting the program on hold until September. In a statement, the show's producers said they plan on reviving "Fashion Police" leading into Awards Season, at which time, current Executive Producer Melissa Rivers and co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski will return.

It's been a rocky road for the series as of late: Following Joan Rivers's tragic passing in September, longtime co-hosts George Kotsiopoulos and Kelly Osbourne both exited, the latter making a move after Rancic made some off-color remarks about Zendaya Coleman on the red carpet. Kotsiopoulos was replaced by Brad Goreski, and Griffin was hired to take Rivers's place. Adding to the drama, Griffin posted a note to her Twitter account to explain her exit, claiming she wanted no part in the cruel, body-shaming humor for which the show is famous. 

Tell us: Are you looking forward to a "Fashion Police" comeback, or do you think it's time that E! keeps it off the air for good?
