It’s been more than six weeks since Giuliana Rancic’s comments about Zendaya’s dreadlocks caused all hell to break loose on Fashion Police, with her co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin. So ridiculous!
Giuliana appeared on The Today show on Monday to clear her name, which happened to be the same day Kelly posted the cryptic tweet. Still feuding?
Rancic blamed the controversy over her recent comments about Zendaya on Fashion Police’s poor editing.
Giuliana stated, “I think it’s time to just tell the truth. I thought the joke was not edited in the proper way. That’s just something I have to live with. It’s very important for me to get out there and tell the real story.”
Osbourne posted this tweet that raised eyebrows:
Insiders reveal that Kelly Osbourne’s tweet was fired at Rancic.
“The tweet is definitely about Giuliana,” said one insider. “They’re totally feuding.”
A second insider notes that Osbourne is angry that Rancic won’t own up to her actions.
They said, “Kelly cannot understand why Giuliana keeps talking about editing when there was a whole audience and crew who heard and saw otherwise!. Kelly thinks Giuliana should have been truthful, apologized, and moved on”.
Am I the only one that thinks the whole controversy over that comment is totally ridiculous? Much ado about nothing!
After the dreadlock controversy, Osbourne and Kathy Griffin have quit the show. It’s also unclear if Rancic will return. When asked, she simply said, “We’ll see.”
Giuliana pretty much confirmed rumors of a feud, telling HuffPost Live of Kelly and Kathy, “I haven’t [been in touch] with them at all. I can’t speak for them, what they meant by those comments. Nothing good can come from trying to speak to them.”
Giuliana also suggested drama with her co-stars goes back long before her February comments.
She stated, “When Fashion Police came back on after Joan [River] ’s death, it was the exact same format that they had created for Joan, but it couldn’t succeed. She was so unique in the way she delivered comedy — the format was built around her.”
