Kathy Griffin, who had been brought in to replace the late great Joan Rivers, also quit, in a not so thinly veiled move of support.
In an interview with Huff Post Live on April 7 Rancic revealed that she hasn't talked to Kelly, or Kathy, since the incident:
"There's nothing good that can come of trying to speak for them, [or guess] what they meant by their comments."
Following the shock departures, E! announced that the series would go on hiatus for several months. Rancic supports this move saying:
"When Fashion Police came back on after Joan's death, it was the exact same format that they had created for Joan, but it couldn't succeed. She was so unique in the way she delivered comedy — the format was built around her,"
Rancic's memoir Going Off Script was released on the same day as the Huff Post interview, and just the day before Osbourne tweeted;
Which according to US Weekly was DEFINITELY aimed at Giuliana.
Rancic did not directly respond to the tweet but chose to comment more generally on internet bullies:
"The only thing a negative comment can do is ruin my day. Instead of getting off social media altogether, there is so much good that outweighs the bad,"
She could also of course have been referring to the criticism she receives about her skinny figure.
But there definitely seems like there's more than a little unfinished business between these two.
