Kelly Osbourne has left E!’s “Fashion Police,” the network announced Friday.

The move comes after days of back and forth on the TV personality’s part following Monday’s episode. In the episode, co-host Guiliana Rancic recapped the Oscars red carpet with her colleagues, including Kathy Griffin and Brad Goreski, and said of singer-actress Zendaya’s hair: “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil and weed.”

Osbourne, declaring herself a friend of Zendaya’s threatened to quit the show, though she seemed to sing a different tune after Rancic made an on-air apology.

“It takes a strong women to apologize & makes a forgiving women even stronger! #ThisTooShallPass,” Osbourne tweeted Thursday.

But things have changed yet again over the past 24 hours.

Kelly Osbourne is departing E!s ‘Fashion Police’ to pursue other opportunities,” read the statement from E! network Friday afternoon. “We would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years, during which time the show became a hit with viewers. ‘Fashion Police’ will return, as scheduled, on Friday, March 30th at 9 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement.”

Monday’s Oscars recap episode was Osbourne’s last.
