Giuliana Rancic has confirmed she is returning to co-host Fashion Police, following the controversy surrounding her comments about Zendaya’s hair.

The 40-year-old’s controversial comments about Zendaya’s dreadlocked hair at the Oscars led, in part, to both Kathy Griffin and Kelly Osbourne quitting the panel of the E! show.

But following speculation that Giuliana would not be coming back for another series, the mother-of-one is proud to be returning.

“Once it comes back, it’s gonna be a show that I'm proud to be on and that people are proud to watch,” she told US TV show Extra.

Giuliana’s remaining co-hosts have yet to be revealed. And she revealed E! producers are not in any rush to find replacements for Kelly and Kathy as yet, because they want to make sure they get the right fit for the remaining seats.

“I’ll tell you this and this is the truth, right now they’ve held off looking at people because now we’re on this hiatus, right now all the focus is on the actual show itself and the format of the show, and the segments and tone of the show; once they figure that out, then they’ll figure out the cast,” she said.

Kathy quit Fashion Police last month after only seven episodes, after taking over from the late Joan Rivers in January. She later opened up about her decision to leave the show during an interview on The View.

“I kind of felt like I was being forced to comment about pictures of beautiful women in perfect dresses, and say kind of bad things. … As a feminist and a comic, it just didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” she explained. “It’s a little different than what felt to me sort of like a dog-pile. I was hoping we could talk about the events themselves and the shows, so I didn’t want to say that Meryl Streep didn’t look great, because she looked great. So sometimes it felt disingenuous to me.”
