If you need to get caught up, here's a brief summary of what's happened thus far:
Giuliana made some pretty awful comments about Zendaya's hair on the February 23rd Oscars episode of Fashion Police, which aired Monday night:
"…I feel like she smells like pachouli oil… or weed!"
Let the groans ensue.
Well, Zendaya made an incredible statement detailing precisely why this was offensive, Kelly Osbourne threatened to quit over Giuliana's remarks, Giuliana apologized, and Zendaya accepted her apology.
Although this might have been where the drama ended, a source says that Kelly WARNED Giuliana not to include the remarks, and that the segment was taped three times:
"They did the Zendaya segment three times. Three different takes. On the first two takes, Kelly said 'Guys, we can't say this. Zendaya is a friend of the show.'"
Of course, the producers on the show did go through with it.
"Giuliana said the words 'patchouli oil' and 'weed' three times. They all heard the three takes."
With ample warning and more than enough time to nix the idea, WHY did the producers go through with this?
