Osbourne, who left the E! show after Rancic made some racist remarks about Zendaya‘s dreadlocks during the Academy Awards, slams her former colleague in new interview. Speaking with The Wrap, the 30-year-old says that while she hopes the newly revamped Fashion Police — which will also includeBrad Goreski and Melissa Rivers as panelists — will succeed, she won’t necessarily be rooting for Rancic.
“I will never admit to liking Giuliana because I don’t. I don’t think she’s a good person and I think she’s a liar,” she tells the publication, adding that she’ll still support the other co-hosts though.
“Brad is one of the most incredible people in fashion, he is funny as fuck,” she continues. “I am so happy for Melissa that she is filling that seat and I want that show to go on.”
Osbourne also blames the backlash she recently received for her racist comments about Latino immigrants on Rancic. According to the lavender-haired starlet, her remarks on The View, where she joked about how no one will be around to clean toilets if Donald Trump kicks all Latinos out of America, have been blown out of proportion because of Rancic’s previous snafu with Zendaya.
“Do you know why? Because of people like Giuliana Rancic,” she tells Us Weekly of the negative criticisms.
“Don’t blame me for other people’s mistakes. I wasn’t edited,” she says of the joke. “It wasn’t a premeditated attack. And if I watched it, I would hate me too. So I have no problem, and I would do whatever I have to, to make it right. But don’t compare me to her.
“You can see that they cut me off,” Osbourne adds. “You only saw a 6-second clip. When you watch the full episode, it’s a different story. But I’m not going to make up excuses because I don’t need to. I know who I am.”
Previously, ex-Fashion Police co-host Kathy Griffin claimed that Rancic’s comments weren’t a lapse in judgement, but rather premeditated as someone had written the offensive joke for her.
“I wouldn’t have said the joke in the first place. Some dude wrote it for her,” Griffin told Chicago Sun-Times in March, advising Rancic, “Don’t have anyone write you jokes or even suggest jokes for you on Fashion Police. You have enough great insider gossip from actually being ON the red carpet. That’s what fans want to hear the next day. Just talk and be yourself.”
