She was vocal after her departure from Fashion Police.
And now Kelly Osbourne has spoken out about Joan Rivers being replaced by her daughter Melissa on the show.
She told People magazine on Thursday: ‘This is what should have happened from day one. Melissa always should have been there.

‘When [Melissa] called me to tell me, I was like screaming, jumping up and down because I’m like, ‘Continue the legacy!”‘
The former star of the E! show – who quit earlier this year amid controversy surrounding panellist Giuliana Rancic’s comments about Zendaya Coleman – has insisted she has a lot of love for her show family.’


She added: ‘I will always, always love, love, love the time I spent working with Joan (Rivers) and George (Kotsiopoulos) and Melissa.
‘They’re the most incredible people. They’re still part of my family.’
Kelly voiced her thoughts when she was attending Logo’s Trailblazer Honors in Manhattan Thursday.

The 30-year-old daughter of Ozzy Osbourne paired her punk-inspired frock with a spiked metallic clutch and grey suede pumps.
The perennially purple-haired presenter had her make-up applied by Jasen Kaplan for the telecast airing Saturday on Logo TV.
Kelly – who’s been unemployed since quitting E!’s Fashion Police – just guest-starred on the 14th season of Project Runway, which returns August 6 on Lifetime.
And after 13 guest-hosting stints on CBS’ The Talk, Osbourne is reportedly trying to have her mother secure her a more permanent position.
‘Sharon is trying to cut a deal with The Talk,’ a source told Radar Online. ‘She wants to share the job with Kelly.’
Meanwhile, Melissa recently admitted her appointment on the E! show makes her feel like she’s coming back ‘home’.


About her new job, she shared: ‘It’s exciting! It’s good to feel like I’m home, [and preserving my mother’s] legacy.’
The news of Melissa’s role was confirmed last month by Jeff Olde, executive vice president of programming and development for E!
He said in a statement: ‘We are pleased to now also feature Melissa in front of the ‘Fashion Police’ cameras, as she joins returning panelists Giuliana and Brad [Gorescki].’
