E! New’s Giuliana Rancic has confirmed she is transitioning from her day-to-day position.
Rancic has been covering red carpets with E! for the last decade and has brought us some great moments and some brow-raising comments. The most recent was earlier this year when the co-host made a comment about Disney star Zendaya Coleman’s dreaded hair at the Oscars saying it looked as if she smelled like, “patchouli oil and weed.” This caused both long time co-host Kelly Osbourne and new co-host Kathy Griffin to both resign from Fashion Police.
“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. 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. 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,” said Rancic in a statement.
Rancic will begin her transition starting Aug. 10, but still remain on Live From the Red Carpet and Fashion Police that is set to return with co-host Brad Goreski and Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa Rivers on Aug. 31.

When “Kardashian” is mentioned, most likely the first name that comes to mind is Kim, or maybe Kourtney. While Kim and Kourtney took the spotlight, Khloe, the youngest of the three sisters, seemed the fade into the background. When Keeping Up With The Kardashians first began in 2007, she was easily forgotten about, and the public loved to ridicule her because she was different from her sisters. Khloe was a lot taller and had a bigger frame than Kim and Kourtney; many people also thought her less attractive. However, over the past few years, Khloe has gone through an amazing transformation. Once the underrated, ignored sister, Khloe is now taking the spotlight and proving all of her haters wrong.
These two pictures say it all. Back in 2009, when the Kardashians’ show was
This year at the Oscars, the Fashion Police were adapting to one major change: it was their first Academy Awards without Joan Rivers, who died in September at the age of 81. The hit show had been off the air since Rivers’ death, and their return to television was anything but smooth.
Giuliana Rancic, a prominent member of Fashion Police, got herself into some trouble when she made a racist comment about former Disney star, Zendaya. Rancic criticized the actress’s dreadlocks by saying, “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil… maybe weed.” The comment immediately did not sit well with the public, particularly Zendaya. She took to twitter to address the issue, tweeting, “There is a fine line between what is funny and disrespectful… I was hit with ignorant slurs and pure disrespect.” The actress went on to say that Rancic’s comment was based off of a stereotype and was incredibly offensive.
Zendaya took this particularly personally because many of her family members have dreadlocks as well, and she respects them a lot.
