“I didn’t. I think once the real story got out and the true intentions came out, everyone understood the story,” E! host tells Meredith Vieira
Giuliana Rancic revealed that she never even considered leaving E!’s “Fashion Police,” during an appearance with her co-hosts on “The Meredith Vieira Show” on Monday.
“No, I didn’t,” Rancic said when Vieira asked if she had ever thought about quitting. “I didn’t. I think once the real story got out and the true intentions came out, everyone understood the story.”
She continued to say that during the show’s hiatus, fans on the street would plead with her, begging that the show stay on the air.
“It’s such a fun show, Joan Rivers made ‘Fashion Police,'” she said. “We would like it to go on, I’ve been there from the beginning.”
Osbourne quit “Fashion Police” in February, following backlash over remarks made by Rancic about actress Zendaya’s dreadlocks hairstyle at the Academy Awards. Griffin left shortly after, forcing E! to put the show on hiatus in March.
Rancic, and co-hosts Melissa Rivers and Brad Goreski dodged the question about whether or not there was any hard feelings with Griffin and Osbourne.
“We are just excited because we know the network is happy with us right now because they give us on tape days breakfast and lunch. That’s a big deal,” said Rivers.
“The Meredith Vieira Show” airs on NBC.
