Earlier this week, Giuliana Rancic came forward to finally explain what really happened when she made that tasteless joke about Zendaya’s hair at the Oscars on an episode of Fashion Police. Both Rancic and the show experienced backlash from fans and also from now ex-cast members like Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin. Rancic said her “patchouli oil or weed” joke was cut for time, and her references to hippie culture, like making peace signs and using the word “bohemian,” were edited out and that is the reason why the joke appeared to be so offensive.
Kelly Osbourne allegedly isn’t buying it. Osbourne has been a vocal player in this recent Fashion Police debacle, so when eagle-eyed Twitter users spotted what they believe to be a subtweet aimed at Rancic, they took the bait.
Liars ALWAYS get caught!

On Monday, Osbourne tweeted “Liars ALWAYS get caught,” which considering the timing of the tweet – happening just a few hours after Rancic’s interview on the Today Show aired – seems a little shady. Of course, unless Osbourne herself comes out to confirm that yes, the tweet was aimed at Rancic we can’t be 100% sure it was directed at her, but needless to say, the timing of the tweet is really quite curious.
There are rumors that Osbourne told Rancic during the taping that the joke was not a good idea, but she insisted on telling it anyway. According to Kathy Griffin, the joke was written by someone else, and not Rancic herself.
All we know is that this entire thing is a mess.
