Kelly Osbourne Says Working With Joan Rivers Was Incredible

Kelly Osbourne stayed gracious during her first interview since leaving E!’s “Fashion Police” over the way they handled Giuliana Rancic’s distasteful commentary about Zendaya’s locs.

Via Page Six reports:

In an appearance Tuesday on her mom Sharon Osbourne‘s daytime show “The Talk,” Kelly said, “You know what? It was the five best working years of my life.”

“I am so grateful for the experience. Working with Joan Rivers for five years was incredible. I learned so much and … I’m excited for my future now. I want to try a new thing.”

On Feb. 27, Osbourne announced her departure as co-host of the E! show just days after co-panelist Giuliana Rancic angered viewers with her comments about actress Zendaya‘s Oscar-night dreadlocks. Rancic, 40, later apologized.

Sources told Page Six Osbourne was fuming at how E! handled the flap.

Osbourne also expressed her outrage on Twitter, as did her famous father, Ozzy Osbourne.

Kathy Griffin replaced Rivers as the show’s host after the comedian died in September. Stylist Brad Goreski also joined the panel this season, replacing George Kotsiopoulos.

The show is slated to return March 30, though no replacement for Osbourne has been named. E! reality starlet Khloé Kardashian‘s name has been tossed around, as have those of Nene Leakes and Kristin Cavallari.

That was really big of Kelly… And we’d imagine she probably didn’t want to do the show much anyway once Joan Rivers was no longer part of it. Let’s be honest, working with Kathy Griffin, Giuliana Rancic AND Brad Goreski doesn’t seem like the the fun time she had with Joan and George.

Big ups to Kelly for taking a stand for her beliefs and best of luck in her future endeavors. We’re excited to see what she does next too!
