It looks like we’ll no longer be seeing the infamous Kelly Osbourne on E!s Fashion Police. She has decided to quit the show as a result of the network’s decision to air Giuliana Rancic’s controversial “joke” about Zendaya’s hair at the Oscars several days ago. According to People magazine.
“Kelly Osbourne is departing E! Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities,” E! announced Friday. “We would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years, during which time the show became a hit with viewers.” E! went on to say the show will return as scheduled on Friday, March 30, at 9 p.m., and that no decisions have been made on her replacement. After Rancic, 40, made the comment about Zendaya’s dreadlocks and how they looked like they smelled of “patchouli” or “weed,” Osbourne threatened on Twitter to leave the show unless “the situation” was “rectified like ADULTS by both parties.” She also went on to say that 18-year-old Zendaya is a friend.
Yesterday, we reported that Rancic wanted Osbourne off the show “for throwing her under the bus.” I guess she got her wish since her public apology was not enough to keep Kelly around. We wish Kelly the best of luck as she pursues new endeavors!
