Kelly Osbourne “learned so much” from being on Fashion Police.
The 30-year-old stunned fans when she announced last month that she would be quitting the E! programme.
And now Kelly has spoken for the first time since her shock decision, insisting she will always look back fondly on her time on the show.
“You know what, it was the five best working years of my life,” Kelly said, while appearing on The Talk alongside mother Sharon on Tuesday. “I am so grateful for the experience… working with Joan Rivers for five years was incredible.”
Kelly’s decision to leave Fashion Police came after several weeks of controversy for the show.
Host Giuliana Rancic caused a scandal when she suggested that singer and actress Zendaya’s dreadlocked 'do at the Oscars made her look like she smelled of “patchouli oil and weed”.
Following the airing of Giuliana’s snide remark, Kelly took to Twitter to make it clear she was not happy about it.
“I DID NOT MAKE THE WEED COMENT. I DO NOT CONDONE RACISM SO AS A RSULT OF THIS IM SEREIOULSY QUESTIONONIG STAYING ON THE SHOW (sic),” Kelly tweeted.
Giuliana later apologised to Zendaya, who gracefully accepted her apology.
However, Kelly made no reference to the Zendaya scandal when she appeared on The Talk to discuss her departure from Fashion Police.
Instead, she focused on the things she had loved about starring on the show.
“I learned so much and I’m excited for my future,” she said. “I want to try new things.”
It has been rumoured reality star Khloé Kardashian and singer Christina Milian are both potential candidates to replace Kelly, but confirmation has yet to be revealed.
