Giuliana Rancic Is Leaving E! News

For 10 years, Giuliana Rancic has delivered daily Hollywood happenings on E! News. But the network has confirmed that she’ll be leaving her post as nightly host of the celebrity gossip show. But, while her consistent presence will cease on Aug. 10 on the home of the Kardashians, the 40-year-old mom-of-one isn’t going anywhere.

“For more than a decade, I was fortunate enough to play a role in the success of E! News and will miss my family at the show,” Rancic said in the statement to Us Weekly. “At the same time, I am excited to not only continue as host of two major franchises on E! but also executive produce the aspirational new show Rich in Faith for Oxygen as well as take my wine and clothing lines to the next level.” She added, “This is such a thrilling time for me and I thank the gang at E! for understanding my desire to embark on this next chapter in my life.”

Rancic will retain her role as co-host of the show Fashion Police — which has been struggling recently, in part due to Rancic’s comments regarding Zendaya’s dreadlocks (she said her hair smelled of “weed” and “patchouli”) but mostly due to the loss of Joan Rivers  — that returns Aug. 31. She’ll also continue her red carpet reporting at major award shows on Live From the Red Carpet.

Kathy Griffin: I Wouldn’t Have Said That Zendaya Comment.

Zendaya, Giuliana Rancic, and Kelly Osbourne have all weighed in on the so-called joke Rancic attempted to crack about Zendaya’s dreadlocks on Fashion Police last month. Comedian Kathy Griffin took her turn Tuesday.

In an email interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, Griffin was asked if it would have been so controversial if she had been the one to utter Rancic’s line about thinking Zendaya “smells like patchouli oil… or weed” because of the teen star’s hairstyle on the Oscars red carpet. “Probably not,” replied Griffin, who replaced the late Joan Rivers as host in January. “But I wouldn’t have said the joke in the first place. Some dude wrote it for her.”





How E! Failed Giuliana Rancic In ‘Fashion Police’-Zendaya Debacle: What You Didn’t See.

E! Entertainment has stood by silently while its longtime star Giuliana Rancic has been embroiled in controversy over comments she made on the Oscar edition of “Fashion Police” about Zendaya Coleman.

Individuals close to Rancic told TheWrap that they’re disappointed about the way events unfolded in the wake of the comments as the network has still yet to admit its role in the debacle.

Not only do the individuals say the joke was written for her, but “Fashion Police” producers edited out footage that would’ve given more context to the comments and possibly could’ve saved her from being characterized as a racist.

Kelly Osbourne Threatening To Abandon Fashion Police?

Reports say that Kelly Osbourne is threatening to abandon her position as co-host of E!’s Fashion Police, following an unfortunate incident involving Disney Channel star (and Osbourne’s friend) Zendaya.

First, a quick recap: During Fashion Police‘s post-Oscars special on Monday, co-host Giuliana Rancic made a (terrible) joke about Zendaya’s dreadlocks, one that insinuated the K.C. Undercover star’s hair smelled like marijuana. Zendaya, feeling that the joke also had racist connotations, posted an open letter on her Instagram account, urging anyone with such comments to “contemplate a little before opening your mouth” in the future.
