    This is not about what Rancic said. Joan said far far worse things about a lot of people and Kelly giggled along. There is obviously something else and this was the OUT she needed or wanted.. GR statement was dumb but hardly something so horrific Kelly would quit over. She had no problem using the show to make snide comments about women she had a beef with.

    so I say there is another reason. I never understood why she or GR were there to give fashion advice anyway.

    I was thinking how the cast seemed to be “happier” than ever on the last episode too…like laughing more than usual, etc. I think they should cancel the show at this point. It’ll never be what it was w/Joan And I preferred George over the new dude.

  • Violet

    I agree with you, something else is/was going on and she used the Rancic debacle as a way out.

  • RayBann

    Will FP ever be successful without Joan?

    I noticed that too. It was like the FP with Joan, but this time they were all trying to be Joan.

  • Marianne Steinmetz

    Kelly is a hypocrite …to laugh at others and now to draw a line in the sand over someone most never even heard of…Joan would be very disappointed in her for not being a loyal Joan Ranger!

  • VanityInsecurity

    Leaving to pursue other interests? Like what? This girl has NO talent whatsoever.

  • Stephanie

    This is just an easy way for Kelly to leave. Shes prob been thinking it for a while

    Good riddance to her and whatever color that grayish mowhawk hair is. She was probably going to get bounced by the network anyway and this gave her a way to save face. Not going to be missed.

    I wonder if she has been contemplating leaving ever since Joan passed away and was looking for a “sign”. She seemed to really love Joan, like in a grandma sense versus just an older friend. I haven’t watched FP in a loooooong time, so my opinion is very skewed but I remember how devastated she was when Joan passed away. I’m honestly surprised the show is even attempting to continue without Joan. I know Melissa is apart of the show, so I can see her wanting to try and continue but maybe the show should just end.

    I read some “source” (and yes, I know, sources aren’t reliable but this one kinda makes sense) say that Guiliana was attempting to be as funny and sassy as Joan by being hard and mean with her comment that she said about Zendaya. And it failed, horribly. That’s the problem with shows that attempt to continue when the big star leaves or passes away. You can’t replicate THEIR talent with someone who’s never done anything on the level of the big star. It just makes the entire show look like it is flailing, like a fish out of water.

    Fashion Police hired Griffin but she seems not to be a funny mean as Joan Rivers so Guilana tried to take over that spaced and failed big time. The new guy they brought him act too superior like we don’t remember that just a few years ago he was an assistant for Rachel Zoe. Kelly is probably jumping boat at the right time. The show will probably be canceled because Joan was Fashion Police.

    he truth is that Joan Rivers Fashion police was Katie G. tried, but it’s not real funny! Joan was improvising genius, and his comments were hilarious. She offended many celebrities was sour, I forgave anyone, and everyone saw it as a comedian. Kelly was waiting only an excuse to leave, I could see that she understood the lack of humor and disagreed with the rudeness.JulianaRancic? Please always was unnecessary! And was in the FP because he wants to equal the Ryan s. on many other programs. But, be criticizing sets having a giant head like hers is a joke! The woman can wear gold, always look like a giant lollipop! And speaking of lollipop Zendaya for your dreadlooks? Nobody deserves, Juliana! The program ended with Joan …

  • Irene

    Good riddance, Kelly! She never had any right to be on that show, anyway. Her “fashion” sense was non-existant and her personal style was laughable. If she didn’t have a famous last name she’d be working at a bowling alley.

    P.S. Giuliana’s comment was not racist. It referred to a look that is often associated with marijuana and hashish smokers.
