Kelly Osbourne Breaks Silence For the First Time After Quitting ‘Fashion Police’
The purple-haired beauty is finally breaking her silence over her public exit from the popular E! show, appearing beside her mother Sharon Osbourne on The Talk Tuesday.
“You know what, it was the five best working years of my life,” Osbourne said. “I am so grateful for the experience… working with Joan Rivers for five years… was incredible.”
The 30-year-old host caused mouths to drop after she up and left the show last month, just days after her co-host Giuliana Rancic made controversial comments about Zendaya Coleman’s dreadlocks smelling like “weed” on the Oscars red carpet.
Osbourne took to Twitter shortly after the FP episode aired, hinting that she wanted to leave the show:
I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW!

Though Rancic apologized and Zendaya accepted it, Osbourne still decided it was time for her to move on. She told The Talk hosts, “I’m excited for my future. I want to try new things.”
Meanwhile, there’s been quite a buzz surrounding who will replace Osbourne on Fashion Police. We’ve heard rumors about Chrissy Teigen, Khloé Kardashian and NeNe Leakes, but E! has made no official announcement just yet.
