“Fashion Police” co-star Guiliana Rancic wants to say “deuces” to lavender-tinted hair cohost Kelly Osbourne for having the audacity to take up for Zendaya and her dreadlocks instead of closing ranks with Rancic.
Rancic is looking at Osbourne twisted now because she feels Osbourne betrayed her for such a public support for Zendaya. And since Osbourne threatened to leave “Fashion Police” if Rancic didn’t apologize for it, Rancic is basically saying “go kick rocks.”
According to Hollywood Life:
“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.”
How Giuliana would be taken by surprise is beyond Osbourne. According to US Week:
“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 what can they really say? They can’t admit 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.”
