Kelly Osbourne is throwing down about her time at E! and bad memories seem to surround one person: Giuliana Rancic. Osbourne has also gone public today, saying that she would come back to Fashion Police if Rancic is gone.
Osbourne’s comments about Rancic and Fashion Police are timed perfectly, as Fashion Police returns next week just after the MTV Music Video Awards. The Wrap is reporting that Osbourne now has zero tolerance for Giuliana Rancic and her behavior.
“I want that show to go on. It was just my time to move on,” Osbourne told The Wrap at 4th Annual NYX FACE Awards in L.A.
Fashion Police also took a blow when Joan Rivers’ replacement, Kathy Griffin, also left abruptly, leaving fans to wonder about the future of the show.
Kelly Osbourne left Fashion Police in February after she and Giuliana Rancic had differences over seemingly racist comments Rancic made on air. According to Hollywood Life, Kelly Osbourne has decided that she has held her tongue long enough and wants fans to know she wants to come back to Fashion Police.
“I will never admit to liking Giuliana because I don’t. I don’t think she’s a good person and I think she’s a liar.”
Kelly Osbourne’s initial outrage came after Rancic made a “joke” about Zendaya Coleman’s dreadlocks smelling like “patchouli and weed.” These comments smacked of racism to many viewers and irked Osbourne, who got angrier when Rancic blamed the comments on writers.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Kelly Osbourne has said that she “doesn’t condone racism” after the comments about Zendaya Coleman. When Osbourne left Fashion Police, she said at the time that she was leaving to pursue other opportunities, but now admits that she no longer wanted to work with Rancic.
Giuliana Rancic recently celebrated her last night on E! News and is reducing her visibility on the network as she is choosing to spend more time with her family in Chicago. Rancic will continue to do the red carpet specials and Fashion Police, though not as a weekly event.
Kelly Osbourne is not backing down from her comments about Giuliana Rancic and is firm that she will not return to Fashion Police as long as Rancic is a participant.
Are you Team Kelly or Team Giuliana when it comes to the fight between the two? Do you think Rancic’s comments about Zendaya were racist?
