Kelly Osbourne has finally broken her silence about leaving the “Fashion Police” television program last month. She did so while serving as a guest co-host on the daytime talk show “The Talk” this week.
“It was the five best working years of my life. I am so grateful for the experience. I can’t even. Working with Joan Rivers for five years was incredible. I learned so much. I’m excited for my future now. I want to try new things, ” Osbourne said.

This was the young star’s first appearance on television since leaving “Fashion Police” and she did so on a show that has her mother Sharon as one of its regular hosts.
But Osbourne’s statements were a far cry from explaining to the public exactly why she chose to abruptly leave her show. In fact, we still do not know if it was her choice to leave or if she was fired by the E! Network on which “Fashion Police” airs.
All that is known for sure is that the 27 year old daughter of the much more famous former Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne, who has a Jewish maternal grandfather, was infuriated by comments which Rancic had made about singer Zendaya’s hair at the Oscars. Rancic said that she smells like a hippie pot smoker.
Osbourne, a friend of the singer, was incensed by what she felt was a racist remark and went on a series of Twitter rants which included:
“Im giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel. contactually Im not allowed to speak!”
And, “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!”
A few days later Osbourne was off the show.
