Kelly Osbourne has reportedly decided to quit 'Fashion Police' but who will replace her?
Kelly Osbourne has left E!'s Fashion Police following a racist remark made by her co-host, Giuliana Rancic. Rancic made a comment on Monday's Fashion Police Oscars special about Zendaya Coleman's hair. "Like I feel like she, she smells like patchouli oil. Or weed. Yeah, maybe weed," Rancic said of Coleman's dreadlocks. Although Rancic has apologised, Osbourne was allegedly furious with Rancic for her remark and has decided to leave Fashion Police as a result.
Kelly Osbourne has quit Fashion Police.
Osbourne, the daughter of Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne and reality star Sharon Osbourne, made her feelings clear via Twitter on Monday and Tuesday (23rd and 24th February). The 30-year-old host wrote how she did not want to be "dragged into" the situation and hoped it could be handled "like adults by both parties". Osbourne further clarified how Coleman is a friend of hers and how, if the situation was not rectified, she was "seriously questioning staying on the show".
On Friday (27th February), reports surfaced claiming Osbourne had carried out her threat to leave the show. E! later confirmed the news and stated there are no plans to replace Osbourne but sources suggest some names have already been put forward.
So, who is in the mix to replace Osbourne? It seems E! are interested in Khloe Kardashian and Nene Leakes as hosts for Fashion Police, according to Us Weekly. Both reality stars have previously been linked to the show and Leakes even appeared on an episode in 2013. Kardashian appears to be the favourite for the position but, as a source stated, "the offer would have to be really high".
