Kelly Osbourne Criticizes Former Co-Host Giuliana Rancic as "Irrelevant" on "The Osbournes Podcast

Kelly Osbourne criticized her former “Fashion Police” co-host Giuliana Rancic as irrelevant during Tuesday’s episode of her family’s “The Osbournes Podcast.”

“We don’t need to give her any f–king anything,” Osbourne, 39, said of Rancic, 49, after her mom, Sharon Osbourne, mentioned the entertainment reporter.

Kelly’s brother, Jack Osbourne, and their father, Ozzy Osbourne, recalled the incident where Rancic made a “f–king racist comment” about Zendaya’s hair on the E! talk show in 2015. Rancic had commented that the “Dune” star smelled “like patchouli oil and weed.”

Jack mentioned that he has not “seen anything from [Rancic] in a very long time,” to which Kelly responded that she “wouldn’t know because as far as I’m concerned, she doesn’t exist.”

Zendaya, 27, spoke out against Rancic’s comment at the time, stating on Instagram that “there is already harsh criticism of African-American hair in society without the help of ignorant people who choose to judge others based on the curl of their hair.”

Rancic faced significant backlash for the remark and publicly apologized to Zendaya, acknowledging that her words were “outrageously offensive.”

Despite not being the one to make the remark about Zendaya, Kelly was inadvertently involved in the scandal, which ultimately led to her departure from “Fashion Police.”

E! ultimately canceled the series in 2017.

Kelly and Rancic had co-hosted the fashion commentary show alongside the late Joan Rivers and George Kotsiopoulos since its premiere in 2010.

Reflecting on the incident, Jack mentioned reading a news article where Zendaya said, “Yeah, f—k Juliana Rancic.”

“Good for her,” Kelly applauded.

Zendaya addressed Rancic’s comment in a 2021 interview with W Magazine, stating, “That’s how change happens. And it made me think, How could I always have a lasting impact on what people saw and associated with people of color?”

The incident inspired Mattel to create a Zendaya Barbie doll dressed in the same outfit and hairstyle that sparked Rancic’s controversial remark.
