E! has announced that Kelly Osbourne is departing Fashion Police, the network’s red-carpet review show.

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! Entertainment said in a
statement Friday.

Fashion Police will be back on March 30 scheduled, but there’s been no decisions on Osbourne’s replacement.

The show returned in January after the death of Joan Rivers, but
longtime viewers complained the chemistry was off: Kathy Griffin, the
heir apparent to Joan’s throne, came off too felicitous.

That left Giuliana Rancic to pull out the knives.

Joan could get away with politically incorrect remarks—she shit on everyone, after all. But at the 2015 Oscars, when Guiliana joked that Zendaya’s dreadlocks probably “smells like patchouli oil or weed,” the public cried foul.

Osbourne spoke out against the incident and, in a tweet, threatened to leave the show.

Eventually Rancic made an apology, which Osbourne seemed to accept

But a day later she was out the door.

TMZ reports Osbourne’s unhappiness with being on FP predates the Zendaya incident, citing tension on the set since the first episode following Joan died.

Maybe the show musn’t go on?
