Could there possibly be a future fashion police officer in the prominent Kardashian household? It is possible.
Now that there is an opening on the show, Fashion Police, due to Kelly Osborne abdicating her position because of her co-star Giuliana Rancic’s, racist comments about Zendaya’s appearance at the Oscars, Keeping up with the Kardashians (KUWTK) star Khloe Kardashian, has her eyes on the open position. The question now is whether Kardashian, is the right person to fill Kelly Osborne’s stilettos.
Although the reality star is used to being in front of the camera, whether she is filming her hit reality show, or just taking an afternoon stroll, there is no indication as to whether she would make a good talk-show host. Being a reality star is quite different than hosting a show. However, it is reported that Kardashian has already obtained the support of Fashion Police’s Rancic, who is supposedly pushing E! to give the star a shot. Kardashian seems to want it bad enough.
According to Hollywood Life, the starlet is “desperate” to snag the role and is “going crazy” for it, afraid that someone else will take the role. The question is, does she want the job so she has something else to do rather than star on her family’s hit reality show, which returns to E! on March 15, or if there is an ulterior motive. Due to her ongoing feud with Amber Rose who is said to be considered for the job as well, it seems that the answer is clear. According to an insider, “She would rather do the show for free if it made E! not select Amber Rose for the Job.” The source continues with “It is now more important for her to not have Amber Rose on the show than being on the show herself.”
Rose is not the only one that Kardashian is up against. Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes, has been making headlines about the possibility of her becoming the next policewoman for the Fashion Police. This too, does not sit well with the 30-year-old star. According to a source, “Khloe is feeling the pressure and losing her mind that the Fashion Police producers are considering the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.”
That being said, one may not consider Kardashian a worthy successor, if all she wants the job for is so her enemy cannot have it. In fact one might not agree with this reasoning at all. Plus, there is the possibility of Leakes winning the position, which would also potentially upset Kardashian.
Since she is familiar to E! viewers due to KUWTK, as well as appearing with a microphone in hand at the E! After Party, Kardashian does have some experience under her belt that my benefit her in the long run. However, if given the chance, the question remains as to whether she will rise to her fans expectations and do her duties with elegance and grace, or if she will use her new position to make matters worse with her nemesis, Rose. The outcome remains to be seen.
Along with Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, Amber Rose, Naya Rivera, J. Alexander, and Louise Roe are also being considered as possible candidates for the spot on Fashion Police. The show returns to television on March 30 at 9pm.
