Kelly Osbourne followed through on her pledge to quit “Fashion Police.” She resigned on Friday.
The daughter of hard rock legend Ozzy Osbourne was long at odds with the producers of the show even before her showdown with show co-star Giuliana Rancic over her racist comments about Zendaya’s dreadlocks.
