While the drama surrounding that died down after Giuliana apologized and Zendaya accepted it, Giuliana appeared on the Today show on Monday to explain exactly what happened when they taped the episode of Fashion Police where she joked that Zendaya's dreads smelled "like patchouli oil...or weed."
While promoting her new book, Giuliana said during the interview, "I think it's time to just tell the truth. I find racism reprehensible. I don't tolerate it at all. Nor have I ever."
She claims that the Oscars episode of the show was edited for time and that some of the context (she was commenting on hippie/bohemian culture) was lost, explaining, "I thought the joke was not edited in the proper way." She added, "That's just something I have to live with. It's very important for me to get out there and tell the real story."
Kelly, it seems, may not be on Giuliana's side on this one, as she tweeted later the same day: "Liars ALWAYS get caught!" You may recall that Kelly quit Fashion Police and Kathy Griffin followed suit after the controversy surrounding Giuliana's joke about Zendaya.
A source told Us Weekly that Kelly's tweet was totally directed at her former co-star, explaining, "The tweet is definitely about Giuliana. They're totally feuding."
Another source told Us Weekly: "Kelly cannot understand why Giuliana keeps talking about editing when there was a whole audience and crew who heard and saw otherwise! Kelly thinks Giuliana should have just been truthful, apologized, and moved on."
Meanwhile, in an interview with HuffPost Live, Giuliana said, "I haven't talked to [Kelly or Kathy]...Nothing good can come of trying to speak for them."

UPDATE: Sounds like Kelly definitely meant that tweet for Giuliana, telling People.com: "There's been so much drama surrounded by what went on at Fashion Police that I have chosen to keep quiet about...But I will say this: Giuliana is not often wrong. She really isn't, but it's been really, really heartbreaking to see her behavior that has transpired when she did get caught being wrong. That's what broke my heart."
She added: "Do we really need to be wasting...time talking about three b**ches not getting along, or so you think? It's so small in the grand scheme of things."
