Rivers return to red carpet

There’s just no keeping Joan and Melissa Rivers off Hollywood’s red carpets.

The mother-daughter tandem, shut out of this year’s Emmy Awards because of a contractual tangle, will return starting with next month’s Golden Globe Awards.

Star Jones Reynolds, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” replaced the Rivers team on E! Entertainment Television after they took their acerbic fashion commentary to the TV Guide Channel earlier this year. The duo had been at E! since 1996.

Jones Reynolds, who married banker Al Reynolds last month, first stepped on the carpet for E! at the Emmys in September. An exclusive agreement between E! and the TV academy in charge of the Emmys prevented the Rivers duo from covering arrivals.

Now they’ll all be on the red carpet, chatting with Golden Globe nominees and guests as they arrive at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Jan. 16.

“It’s been a mess, it’s been a very messy couple of months,” Joan Rivers told The Associated Press Tuesday. “I think they have their acts together. I just want to get back to work.”
