Kathy Griffin 'Surprised People Are So Invested' In 'Fashion Police'

Kathy Griffin says she's been surprised by the reaction to her decision to leave 'Fashion Police'.

"It just didn't work out," Griffin said at a comedy show in Connecticut.

"I'm surprised that people are so invested in this show. But I shouldn't be because Joan Rivers was so incredible and amazing, and it just wasn't the right thing for me."

"I thought that I could bring my brand of humor to Fashion Police so that beautiful people in beautiful dresses could be teased when appropriate. There is plenty to make fun of in pop culture without bringing people's bodies into it," she said announcing her exit a day earlier.

"I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show and now it's time to move on Listen, I am no saint but I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference."

Griffin left soon after co-host Kelly Osbourne quit the show after Giuliana Rancic made a joke Zendaya Coleman's dreadlocks.
