Kelly Osbourne has officially quit E! Network’s hit show “Fashion Police.” The news came over the weekend just shortly after the controversy regarding a comment host Giuliana Rancic had made about singer Zendaya on the show.
“Kelly Osbourne is departing E!s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities, and we would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years, during which time the show became a hit with viewers,” E! said in a statement.
With Osbourne gone, the rumors have started to swirl over who will replace her spot on “Fashion Police,” with Khloe Kardashian leading the pack.
Kardashian may not be an obvious choice, but the reality star does love her shoes!
Some may forget Khloe takes part in designing the Kardashian Kollection clothing and footwear line, and she is one of the sisters who founded the popular retailer boutique Dash since 2006.

Kardashian definitely knows shoes, often wearing (and Instragramming) piles of Timberland boots, Nike running sneakers, Christian Louboutin styler and heels from her own collection.
“Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Friday, March 30th at 9:00 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement,” E! continued in its statement.
Though E! did not say Osbourne made her decision over Rancic’s comments, she made it clear via Twitter she was not happy with the situation.
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!

Rancic had made a comment about the 18-year-old actress Zendaya on the show after the Oscars, saying “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil … or maybe weed,” referring to the singer’s dreadlocks.
Zendaya quickly responded to the comments saying it was “outrageously offensive,” which prompted Rancic to publicly apologize. Zendaya wrote on her instagram: “Giuliana, I appreciate your apology and I’m glad it was a learning experience for you and for the network.”
Who do you think should be Osbourne’s replacement? Sound off on the comments below.
