Kelly Osbourne recalls ‘Fashion Police’ fallout with Giuliana Rancic after Zendaya comments

Must read


Kelly Osbourne has some regrets from her time on “Fashion Police.”

The television personality called the show the “best job I ever had” on Tuesday’s episode of “The Osbourne Podcast,” which she hosts with her parents, Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne, and brother, Jack Osbourne.

Kelly Osbourne, 39, hosted the E! series with the late Joan Rivers, fashion editor George Kotsiopoulos and E! anchor Giuliana Rancic, the latter of whom she noted she didn’t have the best relationship with.

“We don’t need to give her … anything,” Kelly Osbourne said when Sharon Osbourne brought up Rancic, 49.

Jack Osbourne recalled the feud between Osbourne and Rancic, which he said started when, on an episode of “Fashion Police,” Rancic made a derogatory comment about Zendaya‘s hair on the 2015 Oscars red carpet. Rancic said Zendaya, who wore her hair in faux dreadlocks, looked like she smelled of “weed” and “patchouli.”

“One of the co-hosts of the show made a really kind of a … racist comment about her hair, and nothing happened to the woman that made the comment,” Jack Osbourne said of Rancic.

Rancic received backlash for the comment, but the Osbournes said the fallout fell back on Kelly Osbourne.

“Kelly kind of took the stand of ‘That’s (messed) up. I don’t want to work with someone like that,'” he continued. “And then it somehow got turned around that Kelly said the comment, but Kelly didn’t say the comment.”

Kelly Osbourne said the incident and the death of Rivers in 2014 resulted in her eventually leaving the show.

“It turned into this whole thing, and it made me take a long hard look at where I was, and it made me realize that I didn’t want to be there without Joan,” Kelly Osbourne said. “It’s one of my biggest regrets in all of it, to be honest with you, was how Melissa (Rivers) got hurt in all of it because she had just lost her mom and then the show.”

Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa Rivers joined the series after her mom’s death, as did Kathy Griffin, for one season, and celebrity stylist Brad Goreski. Kelly Osbourne left the show in 2015. NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho joined in the show’s final seasons. The weekly show ran from 2010 until its cancellation in 2017.
