'Proud' Sharon Osbourne Revealed The Real Reason Why Kelly Quit 'Fashion Police'
Last week, Giuliana Rancic's red carpet comments about Zendaya's dreadlocks -- she claimed they smelled like "patchouli" and "weed" at the Oscars -- caused a real stir, supposedly leading her fellow "Fashion Police" host Kelly Osbourne to quit.
Well, it's a "supposedly" no more -- Kelly's mom Sharon Osbourne expressed pride in her daughter's strong stance on the matter, via a tweet that essentially confirms that Kelly quit over Rancic's comments:
".@KellyOsbourne, I am so proud of you. You can never be bought. You always wear your heart on your sleeve. #ProudToBeYourMum," she wrote on Friday.
That same day, E! confirmed that Kelly would be departing the show she helped launch five years ago.
Sharon is no stranger to taking strong stances in times of media controversy. In 2012, she left NBC's "America's Got Talent" when the network cut ties with her son Jack Osbourne after becoming aware of his multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Kelly seems to have inherited her mother's moral compass.
Since the media firestorm erupted, Rancic has apologized, and she claimed that someone else wrote the joke in the first place.
Osbourne's departure comes five months after the death of the show's founder, Joan Rivers. Melissa Rivers, Joan's daughter and executive producer of the show, posted a message about Osbourne on Friday night:
"Kelly Osbourne is a friend and has been a wonderful part of the Fashion Police family. I will miss her terribly and wish her the very best in all of her future endeavors. As my mother always said, the show must go on and I plan to continue in the same spirit." Rivers wrote.
