Long-time host on Fashion Police, Kelly Osbourne has left the show.
Osbourne had threatened to leave the show after fellow host Guiliana Rancic had made a racist comment, though she recognized Rancic’s public apology to the subject, Zendaya Coleman.
However, according to TMZ, there had been issues with the show ever since the departure of Joan Rivers.
“We’re told the tension started over the first episode the cast taped without Joan Rivers. Kelly was unhappy with the way the show was being produced. Producers, we’re told, were ‘up to here’ with Kelly so the handwriting was on the wall.”
E! confirmed Osbourne’s immediate departure on Friday evening via the following 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.”
“Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30, at 9 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement.”
