Since Kelly Osbourne announced her departure from “Fashion Police” on E!, rumors have started flying about her replacement. According to the latest speculation, a different reality TV personality might replace the former “Osbournes” star.
Osbourne left “Fashion Police” after Giuliana Rancic made comments about singer Zendaya’s dreadlocks. Rancic said the hair reminded her of the scent of marijuana. Despite an on-air apology from Rancic, Osbourne is still leaving.
Khloé Kardashian is among those being considered for the role, according to Us Weekly. The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star is already involved with the network, and she has been hosting some red carpet coverage as well as post-Grammy and Oscar specials. With more and more hosting gigs, joining the “Fashion Police” cast might be the next logical career move for Khloé.
Plus, Kardashian has the help of her mother and sisters. Her family reportedly signed a $100 million contract with E! last week. The deal also includes “further opportunities for the sisters,” Page Six reports. Hosting “Fashion Police” could easily be one of those opportunities.
However, Khloé may not want the job. “She was supposed to do it last time and passed. She may consider doing it again but the offer would have to be really high,” a source told Us Weekly. “It's a lot of extra work for her.”
Kardashian isn’t the only personality in mind for the job. NeNe Leakes is also reportedly being considered. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was a guest on “Fashion Police” in 2013 and was even rumored to take over Joan Rivers' spot before Kathy Griffin was announced. Yet the reality star may be busy with other projects.
Leakes is considering a spin-off with fellow “Real Housewives” star Kim Zolciak, Reality TV Magazine reports. The spin-off could take Leakes off of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” where she is currently the only remaining original cast member. However, the spin-off may not take Leakes out of the running for a spot in the "Fashion Police" cast. Since “Fashion Police” isn’t a daily show, Leakes may have time to host even if she signs on for the "Real Housewives" spin-off.
For now, the “Fashion Police” seat remains open. E! confirmed that “no decisions have been made” regarding Osbourne’s replacement.
“Fashion Police” will return on Monday, March 30 at 9 p.m. EST on E. Who do you want to see replace Kelly Osbourne? Sound off in the comments section below!
