Kelly Osbourne Calls it Quits with Fashion PoliceThe Fashion Police drama continues. Earlier this week, Giuliana Rancic made an ignorant joke about Zendaya’s dreadlocks and the joke has since then become the source of much criticism and controversy. Giuliana said that Zendaya’s hair looked like it smelled of weed, and Zendaya retaliated by calling her jokes ‘ignorant slurs’.
In the continued back and forth Giuliana promptly issued a public apology, Zendaya accepted, and then Giuliana blamed the writers of Fashion Police for the joke. Kelly Osbourne, who is also a host on Fashion Police, added to the drama by threatening to leave if the situation wasn’t resolved––and now, news has just broken that Kelly will in fact be leaving the show.
E! network, who produces Fashion Police, commented, “Kelly Osbourne is departing E!’s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities. 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,” according to People.
It takes a strong women to apologize & makes a forgiving women even stronger! #ThisTooShallPass— Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) February 26, 2015
Despite Kelly also accepting Guiliana’s apology via Twitter, it appears that the drama was just too much for her. Despite Kelly’s departure, E! has confirmed that the show will continue to air as usual and will return on Friday, March 30.
