After last week’s Fashion Police controversy regarding Giuliana Rancic’s questionable comments about Zendaya’s dreadlocked hair, Kelly Osbourne has exited the show.
As a reminder, Rancic tried to make a joke last Monday night which did not go over well with Zendaya or Rancic’s co-host Osbourne. The E! News host said, “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil and weed.” Zendaya, 18, was quick to share an Instagram post regarding the offense she took and Osbourne backed her when she tweeted that she does not condone racism and in turn, will be questioning her position on the show.
Less than 24 hours post scandal, Rancic apologized on air and Zendaya accepted the 40-year-old’s regret.
However, Osbourne quit the show only a few days later. E! released a statement saying, “Kelly Osbourne is departing E!’s Fashion Police to pursue 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.”
Executive producer of the show and the late Joan Rivers’ daughter relayed similar thoughts when she said, “Kelly Osbourne is a friend and has been a wonderful part of the Fashion Police family. I will miss her terribly and wish her the very best in all of her future endeavors.” Rivers continued, “As my mother always said, the show must go on and I plan to continue in the same spirit.”
No replacement has been named although rumors of NeNe Leakes and Khloe Kardashian are circling as potential candidates.
Dakota Johnson Hosts SNL
Just when you thought you saw every inch of Dakota Johnson in 50 Shades of Grey, SNL showed her funny side! The 25-year-old actress and daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson took the Saturday Night Live stage more than two decades after her famous mother did the same.
Some are saying that Johnson fell flat in the comedy arena, but we’re confident in her abilities to go outside her comfort zone (at least we can assume after her recent film performance). Johnson had an audience of family support, too! Her divorced parents reunited to support their daughter and were even part of Johnson’s opening skit.
Lupita Nyong’o Oscars Dress Returned
Last Sunday, Lupita Nyong’o completely stunned on the Academy Awards Red Carpet in a Calvin Klein gown that was covered every inch in genuine pearls. The dress, worth an estimated $150,000, was stolen from her hotel room at West Hollywood's London hotel after the show.
An investigation was in the works last week when police received an anonymous call on Friday afternoon that the dress has been abandoned in a bathroom on the second floor of the hotel.
The 31-year-old was a guest at the award show this year after numerous nominations last year for the moving film 12 Years a Slave. Although the 6,000 strung-pearled dress is returned, the investigation is ongoing.
Ryan Gosling Steps Out With New Tattoo
After welcoming daughter Esmeralda Amada with Eva Mendes in September, Ryan Gosling is showing his love with some art for all to see. While we’re unsure if the ink is permanent, The Notebook actor had the name “Esme” tattooed on the fingers across his left hand.
The new dad, 34, has not spoken publicly about fatherhood but his hand seems to have said it all.
Taylor Swift is Expecting…. A Godchild!
Taylor Swift is known for hanging out with a famous circle of friends. And her posse is growing because one of her friends is expecting a child later this year! The Hart of Dixie actress, Jaime King, revealed last week that she and husband Kyle Newman are pregnant with their second child after years of infertility struggles and welcoming their son James last year.
King revealed even more happy news Sunday night when she posted on Instagram that her bestie Taylor Swift will be "looking over" their addition as the child’s Godmother. How exciting! King wrote, “And @taylorswift will forever be looking over our new baby – we all love you!!!!Xx”
