According to new reports, Giuliana Rancic says her former Fashion Police co-host Kelly Osbourne is “pathetic”.
Giuliana Rancic, 41, “doesn’t understand” why Kelly Osbourne recently branded her “a liar” and wants her to find “someone else to obsess over”, People magazine’s website reports.
Kelly Osbourne, 30, declared earlier this week that she and Giuliana Rancic would never be friends again: “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.”
Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne fell out in March after Giuliana came under fire for “offensive” comments she made about Zendaya Coleman on Fashion Police and Kelly opted to quit the show after distancing herself from the scandal on Twitter.
However, Giuliana Rancic believes Kelly Osbourne is merely trying to “divert attention” from herself after she was slammed for making an offensive comment about the Latino community on The View earlier this month, People.com reports.
Kathy Griffin denies any scandal behind her decision to leave E!’s Fashion Police.
“It just didn’t work out. That’s it, that’s the scandal,” Kathy Griffin said during a standup show in Waterbury, Connecticut on March 13 in a video obtained by TMZ.
“However, Hollywood, of course, enjoys blowing something up,” the comedian continued.
“What’s nice is I got a really nice groundswell of support from other Twatters, um, from the Twitter. And that’s really nice.”
According to Us Weekly, Kathy Griffin expected she’d have more control over her role on the show and the nature of her jokes – being that she replaced Joan Rivers, its former doyenne.
“It just didn’t work out and I’m just surprised that people are so invested in this show, but I shouldn’t be because Joan [Rivers] was so incredible and amazing,” Kathy Griffin told the Waterbury audience.
“It just wasn’t the right fit for me. So, now I’m all over the TMZ and all that stuff and it’s kind of funny.”
Kathy Griffin announced her departure from Fashion Police in a long statement on Twitter on March 12. She made it clear that she felt her brand of comedy didn’t align with the style show.
“After 7 episodes of Fashion Police, I have discovered my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show and now it’s time to move on,” she said.
Kathy Griffin also explained: “I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance toward difference. I want to help women, gay kids, people of color, and anyone who feels underrepresented to have a voice and a LAUGH.”
Kathy Griffin also left as Fashion Police was under a cloud of controversy resulting from co-host Giuliana Rancic’s comments about Zendaya Coleman during the show’s Oscars episode, which many believed were racist, and a couple weeks after five-year co-host Kelly Osbourne left the show citing the desire to explore other opportunities.
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.
Kate Middleton has come in for some rare sartorial criticism over her fondness for her favorite LK Bennett nude heels.
It seems the fashion police will have to try a little harder if they hope to part the Duchess of Cambridge from those trusty LK Bennett court shoes.
Kate Middleton was once again sporting the £185 ($296) heels on Saturday, when she attended the wedding of Prince William’s cousin, Emily McCorquodale – Princess Diana’s niece.
Duchess of Cambridge, 30, was joined by her husband and her brother-in-law, Prince Harry, for the ceremony in Stoke Rochford, Lincolnshire.
While some observers have criticized Kate’s safe choices, she seems happy to be building up a reputation for thrift.
Kate Middleton was once again sporting the $296 LK Bennett nude shoes on Saturday, when she attended the wedding of Prince William’s cousin, Emily McCorquodale, Princess Diana’s niece
Kate wore her faithful court shoes to two events over the Diamond Jubilee weekend, and was seen in them six times during her tour of Canada and the US last summer.
Indeed, her entire outfit for the wedding had been recycled.
She wore the floral Jenny Packham dress at a polo match in the US last year, the dove grey coat at the Order of the Garter service and the hat at last June’s Epsom Derby.
The court shoes are such a favorite that in the last year the Duchess has worn them to the Epsom Derby, to Prince Philip’s 90th birthday at Windsor, to attend Zara Phillips’s wedding and on a visit to the Royal Marsden Hospital, London.
On last summer’s tour of Canada and the U.S. Kate was photographed in them no fewer than six times. On Sunday’s Jubilee River Pageant, they were given another outing on the Royal Barge.
And on Tuesday she got them out of the closet to attend the service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s cathedral.
The high street platforms have also of late been adopted by Princesses Eugenie, who wore a similar black version at the Jubilee River Pageant.
With every outfit coming under the microscope Kate’ support has given a welcome boost to the British brand.
The pumps have become such a success that LK Bennett brought out a Sledge 2 patent version.
