Kelly Osbourne Returns to "Fashion Police" After Seizure

Mehdi TAAMALLAH/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Just two weeks after suffering a seizure that sent her to the hospital, Kelly Osbourne is back on the set of E!'s Fashion Police.

Host Joan Rivers tweeted the news Thursday saying, "Welcome back Kelly!!! THRILLED to have my darling @MissKellyO back on set at @e_FashionPolice. XOXO."

The 28-year-old first shared the news on Wednesday when doctors gave her the all clear. "#SoHappy I just got the al clear from my doctor to go back to work tomorrow!!!!" she said.

Osbourne is already in full swing, traveling to Amsterdam to do press. "...I'm so excited to be here its not even funny!" she tweeted Friday.

Osbourne was released from the hospital last week after suffering a seizure on the set of E!'s Fashion Police.

A rep told E! News that Ozzy Osbourne's daughter received a clean bill of health before leaving the hospital. "Doctors ran numerous tests and determined that this was most likely a one-time episode of which there are no conclusive results," the rep said.

Joan Rivers Knocks Princess Diana, Shocks British Viewers

Angela Weiss/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Notorious gossip queen Joan Rivers is at it again and, as usual, no one is off limits when it comes to her jokes.

The 79-year-old comedian shocked British viewers Friday when she took a dig at the late Princess Diana on a British-themed episode of her late-night E! talk show, Fashion Police.

‘If you ever want to go to Paris, fly, don’t take the tunnel,” Rivers said on the show. The comment was referencing Princess Diana’s death in 1997 when she crashed in a tunnel during a high-speed car chase.

The usually outspoken comedian was critiquing Kate Middleton, wife of Princess Diana’s son William, when she made the joke that shocked fellow hosts, and Brits Kelly Osbourne and Cat Deeley.

Rob Shuter, host of Naughty But Nice on AXS Live and friend of Rivers, wasn’t surprised by the comedian’s Princess Di dig.

“Joan is not one of those people that censors herself,” Shuter told ABC News. “If she thinks it’s funny, she’s going to say it.”

The comedian, who has made jokes about everyone from Michael Jackson to Whitney Houston, believes nothing is off limits, Shuter said. But the Diana joke launched backlash among British viewers.

“There are plenty of other subjects to make fun about in a show about fashion,” British viewer Andrew Henry told the Daily Star magazine. “But that was one step too far. Cruel, vicious and disgusting.”

Shuter said, “In Britain it’s very shocking. It’s a very different sense of humor over there. I think we’re used to Joan in America.”

Rivers has had a long relationship with Prince Charles, Shuter said.

“She took Kathy Griffin to Buckingham Palace,” Shuter said. “That tells you that Joan Rivers knows them very well.”

The Princess Diana comment was not out of character for Rivers, who Shuter insists has a heart of gold. “When you take these jokes out of context, they’re really jarring,” Shuter said.

“You have to remember the source and it’s Joan.”
