The heat is on for comedian Kathy Griffin when she takes over the late Joan Rivers’s spot as co-host of Fashion Police on E!, and she knows it.

“I get it! These are some big shoes I’m going to fill. Joan was truly one of a kind. Now I hope you will accept me for me,” Griffin said in a statement. “I’m just Kathy. Did I say I’m just Kathy? I meant I’m Kathy F***ing Griffin and you celebrities better strap yourself in, as I am taking no prisoners. I am not holding back so DAMMIT let’s have some fun!”

She’ll be joined by celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, who is replacing former co-host George Kotsiopoulos, and Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic are set to return.

But that’s not all that’s changing on the beloved fashion show. Instead of airing weekly episodes, Fashion Police will air just 17 episodes, focused mostly on the biggest fashion nights of the year, like the Oscars, Grammys, Emmys and more. The first episode of 2015 will be dedicated to covering the fashion at the Golden Globes.
