Fashion Police is going through some alterations. With an open seat on E!’s Fashion Police after Kelly Osbourne quit last Friday, Feb. 27, the network continues to look at possible celebrity replacements, in addition to names previously reported by Us Weekly.
Two other names being considered for Osbourne’s vacant spot include Chrissy Teigen and Amber Rose, a source reveals.
Teigen, 29, was a red carpet fixture during the 2015 awards show circuit, during which she accompanied her husband, Oscar and Golden Globe winner John Legend, to shows, and sparked Internet memes for her cry face. The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2014 cover model has the support of millions of fans on Twitter, with whom she discusses a range of topics including trends, her personal life, and soup.
Another source tells Us that Naya Rivera is a possible replacement option. “Naya is talking to E! about being on Fashion Police,” the insider says of the pregnant actress. “They are really intrigued, especially since she was so controversial during her View appearances and got so much press.”
The first insider says, however, that at this stage in the search process, nothing is concrete as producers continue to deliberate about what to do with the popular show once helmed by the late Joan Rivers.
“They are thinking they might just use subs the next few months,” the source tells Us, “and not rush to make a decision.”
E! confirmed to Us last Friday that Osbourne, 30, one of the original co-hosts on Fashion Police, was leaving after her colleague Giuliana Rancic’s controversial quips about Zendaya Coleman’s dreadlocks at the Oscars. (While Rancic apologized for her insensitive comments about the singer on E! News, Osbourne, a pal of Zendaya’s, was upset about the entire fiasco.)
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter publicly lashed out against critics who blamed her for making those statements about Zendaya. “I WILL NOT BE DRAGED [sic] INTO THIS!” she tweeted at the time. “The situation is being rectified like ADULTS by both parties. I hope you can leave it to them & do the same! You guys do realize that @Zendaya is my friend, right?”
E! maintained that Osbourne was leaving Fashion Police after five years with the show “to pursue other opportunities.”
The series — now hosted by Rancic, Kathy Griffin (who replaced the late Joan Rivers), and Brad Goreski (he filled in for the exited George Kotsiopolous) — will still return as planned later this month on Friday, Mar. 30. E! told Us last week and Friday that “no decisions have been made” on Osbourne’s replacement.
