Kelly Osbourne OUT As “Fashion Police” Host!
Kelly Osbourne is OUT as one of the “Fashion Police” co-hosts confirms multiple sources. TMZ was one of the first to report that she had officially departed which seemed odd because she just tweeted that everything was amicable on the show. In case you need to catch up, here is what went down: co-host Giuliana Rancic made a comment about singer/actress Zendaya, 18 at the 2015 Academy Awards. The young starlet showed up with long dread locks and Rancic claimed on FP that she looked like she smelled of “patchouli” or “weed.” Having seen the commentary LIVE as it happened, I just assumed that Rancic was referring to the hippie style that Zendaya was sporting on the red carpet.
That was not what Zendaya and other celebs like Khloe Kardashian and Kerry Washington believed as they thought it was a racist remark. After the show aired, Kelly Osbourne started tweeting about how she and Zendaya are friends and that she was on the verge of quitting if things were not rectified. You can read Kelly Osbourne’s rant right here. Kelly was easily written off and we came up with replacements such as Rita Ora and Miss J Alexander. Rancic soon gave a heartfelt on-air and Twitter apology which Zendaya accepted, leading Kelly to tweet: “It takes a strong women to apologize & makes a forgiving women even stronger! #ThisTooShallPass.”
This made it seem like all was nice and happy in E! “Fashion Police” world but now we are learning that Kelly had wanted to leave when the show returned post-Joan Rivers’ passing. She did not agree with the producers, one of them being Joan’s daughter Melissa. It was said that they were so over her behavior and such which is funny because as a ThrowBack Thursday, Melissa Rivers posted a photo of her mom with Zendaya on her lap. If you head over to Wikipedia, you will see that Kelly Osbourne is now in the list of past hosts leaving Kathy Griffin, who replaced Joan along with Rancic and Brad Goreski, who was new this season.
No official announcement has been made as the last tweet we saw on Kelly’s Twitter was: “Want to make history? Join me @HRC & sign People’s Brief for #MarriageEquality #LoveCantWait http://j.mp/pplbriefl” revealing nothing about her departure. We do not know if E! News will address the situation as they own the show but time will tell. Do you think that she is gone for good or this is just temporary? Let us know!
