Ch-ch-changes! Kelly Osbourne may have quit the E! style series Fashion Police on Friday, Feb. 27, but it seems like the network is already thinking of possible replacements. A source tells Us Weekly that both Khloe Kardashian and NeNe Leakes may be in the running.
“They did the Zendaya segment three times,” an insider previously told Us. “Three different takes. On the first two takes, Kelly said ‘Guys, we can’t say this. Zendaya is a friend of the show.'” (An E! rep denied that there were three takes, saying, “There was only one take of Giuliana’s comments. Kelly did let the group know Zendaya is a friend of hers.”)
The joke was kept in, however, and Rancic later apologized for the hurtful comment. To make matters worse, Rancic’s friend Billy Bush later slammed Osbourne for supposedly throwing Rancic under the bus.
Kardashian, oddly enough, most recently joined Osbourne and Rancic at the Oscars on Sunday, Feb. 22 — when the whole debacle began. Kardashian even applauded Zendaya amid the controversy. “You are a gorgeous, intelligent young lady!” she tweeted. “I love all that you represent! Keep empowering and shine bright!”
A second source tells Us that it is “very possible” that the reality star will join the show. “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,” the insider says. “It’s a lot of extra work for her.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, meanwhile, appeared on Fashion Police as a guest in 2013. In September 2014, it was rumored that Leakes would replace the late Joan Rivers, a spot that eventually went to comedienne Kathy Griffin. Brad Goreski then replaced George Kotsiopoulos.
