I’m hoping this is just rumor like the one started having her join “The View.”  Radar Online is now reporting Nene Leakes is on the short list to replace the late Joan Rivers on “Fashion Police.”

My initial thought was this must be a joke for obvious reasons, right?

One thing’s for sure, Nene, whose “Nene Leakes Entertainment” is set to debut two new “reality” shows in 2015 hasn’t allowed her detractors to stop her progress.

She’s been a guest on E’s, “Fashion Police” several times but so have many others which hardly qualifies them for the position.

Joan Rivers will certainly be a hard act to follow.  She not only had great comedic timing but a great sense of style.

Nene relies on stylist to pull her together and though she will say, “I love fashion” that doesn’t equate to knowing fashion.

If they are looking to diversify the panel, I think EJ Johnson (who has already signed an overall deal with E) would be a great addition.

He’s not only witty; he lives fashion but Nene, come-on.
