As long as there are red carpet disasters, it seems there will be a "Fashion Police" to cover them. The embattled E! show returned on Monday night after a six-month hiatus and lots of drama from two stars who left.
But at least in the case of Kelly Osbourne, there are no hard feelings. Osbourne publicly quit in the wake of comments made by panel member Giuliana Rancic about actress Zendaya's hair, but on Monday night had nothing but good wishes for the show's executive producer-turned-panelist Melissa Rivers:
Rivers, daughter of the late Joan Rivers, who was the show's guiding light, wrote back:
All of the social air-kissing didn't stop the show from pointedly looking back at its recent controversies; according to The Washington Post, "Police" opened up with a quip from Rivers in which she lint-rolled the studio carpet and noted, "I'm still cleaning up messes" before revealing the roller covered in purple and red hair. Purple — that's a reference to Osbourne's lavender locks. Red refers to to Kathy Griffin, who had been hired to replace Joan but also left abruptly in March.
The show's panel now includes Rancic, Rivers and stylist Brad Goreski; on Monday guests included comedian Margaret Cho and "Real Housewives" star NeNe Leakes. Mostly they talked about Sunday evening's MTV Video Music Awards ... but Cho had a choice zinger to send at the show before she left.
Echoing the phrase that got Rancic in trouble with Zendaya and social media, she noted of a picture of Miley Cyrus, "I feel like that hair probably smells like pot and patchouli."
Now, that's the "Fashion Police" we're used to. Good luck!
