Playing Giuliana Rancic Hints She Won't Be Returning to 'Fashion Police'

Following all the recent Fashion Police drama -- including both Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin departing the E! show -- Giuliana Rancic hinted on Monday in an interview with Today that she also won't be returning.

Giuliana made headlines in February when she commented that Zendaya Coleman's dreadlocks hairstyle at the Oscars made it seem like she smelled like "patchouli oil or weed," which she later apologized for after getting called out by the 18-year-old former Disney star.

The 40-year-old E! News host confirmed that Fashion Police will be returning in September, but when asked by Savannah Guthrie if she'll be returning to the panel, she coyly said, "We'll see."

"That's our next interview Savannah," she joked.

As for her controversial dreadlocks comment itself, Giuliana blamed it on the editing.

"I thought that the joke was not edited in the proper way, and that's just something I have to live with," she said. "I made a reference to the hippie culture. I talked about patchouli oil, which is a hippie perfume. And in the editing process, some of the gestures I made, some of the things I said were taken out for time. I made peace signs, I said 'bohemian' twice -- those were taken out for time. So when the joke aired, some people were offended by it."

"I find racism reprehensible," she stressed. "I don't tolerate it at all. Nor have I ever. I think that's really important for me to get that out there, because that's been the hardest part of all of this -- that someone could believe that I actually ... would have racial undertones in the things that I do. Absolutely not."

Giuliana also addressed rumors about her thin frame in the new interview, which she recently told People magazine is a result of taking cancer-suppressing medication. In 2011, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy.

"I do not have an eating disorder," Giuliana said. "I have never had an eating disorder. I wanted to be very clear about that. In fact, I eat a lot. People always love to tweet: 'Eat a burger.' I eat burgers. It's not working."
