E! may not have to search far to find a replacement for Kelly Osbourne on Fashion Police; Khloe Kardashian is interested in the gig.
“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,” a source explained. “It’s a lot of extra work for her.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 30, has the needed experience for the job. She was one of E!’s Oscar pre-show coverage correspondents this year, and she also did a stint on E! News from 2013-14.
Kelly quit the show after Giuliana Rancic refused to take her advice and said on-air that actress/dancer/singer Zendaya looked like she “smelled like patchouli oil…and weed” because of her dreadlocks.
Zendaya publicly slammed Giuliana for being racist, prompting Giuliana to issue a video apology. At first, Kelly said that she wouldn’t get involved in the debate, but later sided with Zendaya, whom she called a friend. She eventually left the show, saying that she planned to pursue “other opportunities.”
Kelly was an original host of the show along with Giuliana, Joan Rivers and George Kotsiopoulos when it launched back in 2010. The show returned for its fourth season in January after the Golden Globes, with Kathy Griffin replacing the late Joan.
Khloe isn’t a confirmed co-host yet, but E! says the show will return March 30 at 9 pm.
