Kelly Osbourne has left Fashion Police on Friday, February 27, E! Entertainment Television has confirmed.
The TV channel said in a statement: “Kelly Osbourne is departing E!s <<Fashion Police>> to pursue other opportunities, and 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.”
Kelly Osbourne has been very vocal about her displeasure with the situation regarding an ill-advised joke made by Fashion Police co-star Giuliana Rancic about Zendaya Coleman’s hairstyle. Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter even hinted on Twitter that she was considering leaving the show, but tweeted that she was contractually handcuffed from saying anything else.
Neither the joke about her friend Zendaya Coleman, nor the ensuing fallout, had anything to do with her decision, according to the Daily Mail.
According to TMZ, Kelly Osbourne was unhappy with how the show was produced this past season and that producers were “up to here” with her.
“Kelly stayed on the show after the beloved Joan Rivers passed away, but nothing has been the same since,” a source told the Daily Mail.
“The chemistry has not been the same between the hosts since the show came back on air and Kelly knows it’s time to move on.”
“This has nothing to do with Giuliana,” the source continued.
“Zendaya accepted Giuliana’s apology and she’s already moved on to a new hair style.”
Kelly Osbourne has been a fixture on Fashion Police since 2011.
