Ozzy Osbourne has slammed Access Hollywood co-host Billy Bush for attacking his daughter Kelly over the Giuliana Rancic/Zendaya Coleman TV feud.
Billy Bush accused Kelly Osbourne of throwing her Fashion Police co-host Rancic “under the bus” when she appeared not to notice the TV presenter’s ill-advised remarks about teenager Zendaya’s dreadlocked look at the Oscars, when she suggested the child star “smelled of weed” during a show, which aired on Monday.
At the height of the fall-out, Osbourne, who is friends with Coleman, even threatened to quit Fashion Police if the feud wasn’t resolved, prompting Access Hollywood presenter Bush to suggest Kelly should have said something when the segment was taped, so it didn’t air on Monday evening.
He said, “Kelly Osbourne threw her under the bus, in my opinion,” adding, “Giuliana is taking the hit for this. That joke that Giuliana delivered, it was a written joke… which means there were a lot of people involved.”
Ozzy has now taken aim at Bush for dragging his daughter into the drama.
He hit Twitter on Friday and wrote, “@BillyBush stop acting like a b**ch. Act like a man. Lay off Kelly or we’ll be going to hospital to get my foot out of your a**. God Bless.”
@BillyBush stop acting like a bitch. Act like a man. Lay off Kelly or we'll be going to hospital to get my foot out of your ass. God Bless.

Bush responded, “Need to book an opthomologist AND a proctologist.”

The TV host addressed the feud on his Access Hollywood Live show on Friday morning, stating, “I respect any dad speaking up for his daughter… (but) Kelly’s 30 now.”
He also revealed Kelly Osbourne auditioned for the job of his sidekick on the morning show, but lost out to Kit Hoover.
