Kelly Osbourne has finally opened up about her departure from "Fashion Police," nearly two weeks after E! announced she was leaving the show.

During an appearance on "The Talk" Tuesday, Osbourne told the hosts — including her mother, Sharon Osbourne — that she is looking forward to starting new projects after spending half a decade critiquing red carpet style on the popular series.

"You know what, it was the five best working years of my life," she said. "I am so grateful for the experience — working with Joan Rivers for five years was incredible."

She added, "I learned so much and I'm excited for my future. I want to try new things."

E! revealed that Osbourne, 30, was departing the show to "pursue other opportunities" in late February, the same week she threatened to quit the show after co-host Giuliana Rancic mocked the dreadlocks Disney star Zendaya wore to the Academy Awards.

"I feel like she smells like patchouli oil ... or weed," Rancic said of Zendaya on an episode that aired the night after the Oscars.

Osbourne tweeted the following day that she doesn't "condone racism," and questioned her own return to "Fashion Police." She has not confirmed whether Rancic's joke prompted her departure.

"Fashion Police" is set to return March 30, though a replacement for Osbourne has not yet been announced.

"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," a representative for the network said in a statement.
