LOS ANGELES (AP) - The E! network says no decisions have been made about the future of "Fashion Police" in the wake of Joan Rivers' death.

The network said in a statement that its "mourning our beloved Joan, and will respond at a later date with further programming updates." Rivers' daughter, Melissa Rivers, is its executive producer.

Rivers died Thursday at 81 at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. She was hospitalized Aug. 28 after going into cardiac arrest in a doctor's office following a routine procedure.

"She's been a much beloved member of the E! family for over 20 years and the world is less funny without her in it," the network said. "Today, our hearts are heavy knowing Joan will not be bounding through the doors."

E! previously said the long-running program, which normally airs new episodes on Fridays, will be on break for the next two weeks. In its place, the network plans to air two special programs focusing on New York Fashion Week.
