The Fashion Police host has officially left the E! show, with the network releasing a statement about her decision Friday. "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," a network rep said.
"'Fashion Police' will return, as scheduled, on Friday, March 30th at 9:00 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement," the statement continued.
Kelly's decision to leave the show comes just days after co-host Giuliana Rancic insulted her friend Zendaya and stirred up controversy when she made a racist comment about the Disney star's faux dreadlocks on the post-Oscars show.
After Twitter users bashed Kelly following Giuliana's comments, Kelly went on a major Twitter rant, tweeting Monday, "I WILL NOT BE [DRAGGED] INTO THIS! The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same!"
"You guys do realize that @Zendaya is my friend right?," she continued, adding, "Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. [contractually] Im not allowed to speak!"
Giuliana had already apologized to Zendaya on Twitter that day, but did so again to her and the network's viewers on E! News that evening. After she did, it seemed like all was well with her co-host. Kelly tweeted Wednesday, "It takes a strong women to apologize & makes a forgiving women even stronger!
We guess it didn't. According to TMZ, Fashion Police producers and Kelly "were at odds" even before the Giuliana drama, with the tension beginning during the first episode without Joan Rivers.
