Another one bites the dust.

Kathy Griffin is leaving E!’s Fashion Police, the network confirmed Thursday after Griffin tweeted the news. Her departure comes on the heels of Kelly Osbourne‘s exit a couple of weeks ago.

“We can confirm that Kathy Griffin is leaving E!’s Fashion Police,” the network said in a statement. “We wish her all the best and are grateful for her time on the show, as well as the many laughs that she gave us all. Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30 at 9/8c with our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski and executive producer Melissa Rivers.”

Griffin took to Twitter to announce the departure. “After 7 episodes of Fashion Police, I discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show & now it’s time to move on,” she tweeted. “I wish the E! and E! and the team the best and I hope to continue to make you all laugh performing live or on television where I can be smart, irreverent, unrepentant and unafraid in an observational way that is candid, honest and justified.”
