Giuliana Rancic Rises Above Ruckus Over Kelly Osbourne's Racist Remark

Giuliana Rancic had every opportunity to take a shot at Kelly Osbourne over her flippant racist remark on Tuesday, but took the dignified high road.

Osbourne was appearing as a guest host on The View yesterday and tried to take a pot shot at Donald Trump over his recent anti-Latino remarks.  The women were discussing Trump's inflammatory comments about Mexicans, with Rosie Perez agreeing that there is an immigration problem in the US  and that many Latinos agree it does need to be addressed, however Trump's racists remarks don't help.

Enter Miss Kelly Osbourne,  She quipped in a most spectacular display of misjudgement;

"If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who  is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?"

There was an awkward silence and a gasp of shock, Perez objected to the comment and the other co-hosts scrabbled to clarify the point, including Osbourne who quickly realized she had fucked up.

There were reportedly tears backstage during the break, but the ladies had made up by the end of the show and Perez apologized to Osbourne on air for being "overly sensitive" saying;

"Kelly Osbourne is on our disdain should go to only Donald Trump, so I'm sorry darling."

Kelly ended the mutual love in by saying;

"No, you don't have to apologize to me, I love you Rosie."


Others on social media weren't so quick to show Kelly the love and forgiveness though;

Osbourne release this statement to make it clear she is not a racist;

"I want to start by saying I ALWAYS take responsibility for my actions. In this particular case I will take responsibility for my poor choice of words but I will not apologize for being a racist as I am NOT. I whole-hearted f--ked up today. I don’t want to bulls--t anyone with lame excuses. Although, I was stopped mid-sentence by Rosie and couldn’t finish my point I will not let Rosie take responsibility for my words. I should have known better as I was on The View and it was live. I’ve learned a very valuable lesson. It is my hope that this situation will open up a conversation about immigration and the Latin community as a whole. By the way I clean my own f--king toilets."

Conspicuously quiet was former Fashion Police co-star, Giuliana Rancic.  Bearing in mind Kelly completely threw her under the bus during the whole Zendaya-racist-hair-remark debacle, she must have been champing at the bit to dole out some karma.  Remember how Kelly threatened to leave the show unless Giuliana "made it right" and even though Rancic publicly apologized for the remark, Osbourne quit the show anyway? This was her chance for revenge!

Well Giuliana was at Craig's in West Hollywood on Tuesday night and there were a load of paparazzi there asking her about Kelly's cock up.  She didn't rise to it though, she just gave them a dazzling picture.

Sometimes you say more by just staying silent and classy...
