According to RadarOnline, fellow host Kelly Osbourne is very unhappy to learn of the ridiculously high salary that Griffin will be raking in from her role on the show.
According to an insider, Osbourne is “pissed” and “Kathy’s starting pay is considerably higher than she was granted.”
Although many suspect that the issue of whose salary is bigger is not going to be the only thing that these two stars butt heads over during the show, and we should all expect a lot of drama.
“Kathy and Kelly have never seen eye-to-eye on anything and it seems like there is going to be a lot of drama,” says the source — which will certainly make for good TV, if nothing else.
However, Griffin is thrilled to be joining the show and previously revealed to People magazine that it will be in honor of her dear friend Rivers.
“[It’s] so exciting to be joining Fashion Police,” she previously told the publication. “Of course, it’s in the honor of my dear, dear friend Joan Rivers, and to take that chair means so much. I think I can hear her from heaven saying, ‘Don’t hold back!'”
Not everyone is as excited about the news as the fiery redhead, though, and she has already been facing a lot of backlash.
“People are tweeting Kathy things like, ‘You will never be Joan,'” a friend of Griffin’s told RadarOnline.
Let’s wait and see if Griffin is any good at her new job when Fashion Police returns with Golden Globes coverage on Jan. 12.
