Giuliana Rancic Wants Kelly Osbourne Off “Fashion Police”
Giuliana is not feeling how quickly her lavender-haired co-host Kelly turned her back on her in the midst of the scandal over Zenaya’s fragrant faux-locs earlier this week. After Kelly pretty much sided with Zendaya and legions of angry naturalistas and didn’t even attempt to come to her co-host’s defense, Giuliana began to look at her differently. Now, since Kelly claimed to be so inclined leave the show over it, Giuliana is happy to help her see her way out.
As a source told HollywoodLife:
“Giuliana is still devastated over this, she feels like her whole team turned their backs on her. Kelly was the worst but it wasn’t just her, she feels like her bosses weren’t there for her either.”
“And she thought about quitting the show, but that’s not going to happen, she’s way too ambitious to quit. She wants to see Kelly leave though, she’s going to play nice with her for the cameras but you better believe she’ll be doing anything she can to get her off the show. This means war.”
But really, it seems that Giuliana shouldn’t have been surprised by Kelly’s response. According to a report from US Weekly, she warned Giuliana not to make such sideways comments about dreadlocs in the first place…but she chose to do it anyway:
“They did the Zendaya segment three times. Three different takes. On the first two takes, Kelly said ‘Guys, we can’t say this. Zendaya is a friend of the show.’
Giuliana said the words ‘patchouli oil’ and ‘weed’ three times.”
An E! rep denies that three takes occurred…but that is not all that surprising, now is it? Insiders say Kelly was more so mad that the producers let the comment fly in the first place, since she is certain that Giuliana personally did not mean it in any sort of racial way.
“Kelly respects Giuliana and knows she didn’t intend the comment to be racist,” a source told US Weekly. As another source told Hollywoodlife:
“Though Giuliana said the disparaging remarks, Kelly is more upset with the producers that allowed it to happen. Now that Joan is gone, more people with the show have taken a more lackadaisical approach to the show and how it is operated and Kelly has been angry about it.”
Welp…somebody is probably on the way out soon. Time will only tell who is still standing after all the patchouli oil and kush-scented air is cleared…
