Just when you thought the feud between Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic was over, comments from one of the women just reignited the whole fight. Following their very public spat, Osbourne is continuing to throw shade at her former “Fashion Police” co-star.
Osbourne hasn’t been on the show for several months, but it’s still among the top things about which the 30-year-old gets asked in interviews. Recently, the Wrap reported, she was fielding questions at the 4th annual NYX Face Awards in Los Angeles when she started talking her departure from the hit E! series and Rancic.
“I will never admit to liking Giuliana because I don’t,” she told the outlet. “I don’t think she’s a good person and I think she’s a liar.”
The very harsh words come in reference to their feud, which was sparked during the Oscars when Rancic made a joke on “Fashion Police” about singer Zendaya’s dreadlocks smelling like “patchouli oil and weed.” The joke received significant outrage from fans who thought it was racist and caused Rancic to later issue an apology, which Zendaya accepted. However, Osbourne was apparently not ready to give Rancic a pass, going on a Twitter tirade about the issue.
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!

Eventually, it was announced Osbourne would be leaving the show to “try new things,” Entertainment Weekly reported. However, many believe her conflict with Rancic was the No. 1 cause of her quitting.
Rancic has yet to comment on Osbourne’s charged words, and it’s possible she won’t. As previously reported, just weeks ago Kelly Osbourne found herself on the hot seat after some comments she made on ABC’s “The View” were interpreted by many as racist. With her nemesis Osbourne on the ropes getting bashed by the court of public opinion, Rancic appeared on E! News to report the story but stopped short of adding any personal commentary saying:
“I don’t think I need to comment,” she said. “I’ve got to take the high road on this.”
“Fashion Police” will return with Rancic, Brad Goreski and Melissa Rivers starting with coverage of the MTV Video Music Awards. According to Variety, the show will then test out this new format for six more episodes through the end of the year.
