Like a lot of us, Kelly Osbourne has quit E!'s Fashion Police because things haven't quite been the same since Joan Rivers died, according to reports.E! released a statement confirming that Osbourne has departed:

"Kelly Osbourne is departing E!s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities, and 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 Monday, March 30, at 9 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement."

In the meantime, rumors are swirling about just why she decided to quit. It may not be a shocker given that she was threatening to quit after her co-host Giuliana Rancic came under fire for saying Zendaya's hair looked like it smelled like weed.

Rancic apologized, but Hollywood Life said she felt hung out to dry by E! and Osbourne. So it sounds like there was some bad blood there. But a source also told The Daily Mail, "The chemistry has not been the same between the hosts since the show came back on air and Kelly knows it's time to move on."

Radar says E! has talked about bringing the newly-ripped Khloe Kardashian on as a host.
