Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
After only 7 episodes on Fashion Police, Kathy Griffin is dunzo! Make room for NeNe Leakes?? Or (gasp!) Porsha Williams?? Both reality stars have been wishin’ and hopin’ and prayin’ and…thirstin‘! But no word yet on whether either would even be considered as a co-host. In the mean time, there’s two open spots on the bench.
Kathy tweetedthe announcement yesterday, saying she doesn’t want to “contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance” anymore. After replacing her personal hero and comic icon Joan Rivers (their meet-ups on Kathy’s former reality show, My Life of the D-List were EPIC!!) Kathy says she “discovered that my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show & now it’s time to move on.”
E! shared: “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 Friday, March 30th at 9:00 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement.”
Zendaya quickly gained a ton of supporters, including Ava DuVernay, Solange Knowles, Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, and Khloe Kardashian, and Giuliana responded to the backlash with a formal apology on E! News. Zendaya put out another statement via Instagram in response to Giuliana’s apology.
Unless you have been under a rock all day.. you know that Zendaya Coleman took offense to a comment Giuliana Rancic made on Fashion Police about her dreadlocks. Giuliana said the hairstyle makes Zendaya look like she reeks of patchouli oil and marijuana. Holy stereotype, right?!?
As a follow up to the non-apology apology she tweeted earlier today, Giuliana addressed the issue tonight on E! News. “I do want to address something that is weighing very heavy on my heart. I want to apologize for a comment on last night’s Fashion Police about Zendaya‘s hair,” she said.
Long story… On Fashion Police, Giuliana criticized Zendaya‘s choice to wear her hair in dreadlocks on the red carpet. She said, “I feel like she smells like patchouli oil or weed.” Needless to say, Giuliana’s comment didn’t sit well with Zendaya. She felt it “outrageously offensive” and needed to be “checked.”
Thursday’s new cast reveal did not impress me, but I will tune in to cheer on my favorite pro dancers. When did the pros become a bigger draw than the stars?! That said, I remember not knowing much about Emmitt Smith, Gilles Marini, Donald Driver, and Zendaya beyond their profession, but I grew to love each of them on their season. So I hope the same happens this time around.
Below are photos of the stars – Antonio Sabato Jr, Betsey Johnson, Alfonso Ribeiro, Janel Parrish, Lolo Jones, Tommy Chong, Bethany Mota, Randy Couture, Michael Waltrip, Sadie Robertson, Tavis Smiley, Lea Thompson, and Jonathan Bennett – with their pro partners. This coming Monday brings us the Bachelor in Paradise finale – who’s watching that hot mess?!? – then the new season of Dancing with the Stars kicks off Monday, September 15.
