Kelly Osbourne has broken her silence since leaving Fashion Police, with only good things to say about her five-year run.

The TV host, 30, made her first appearance since the announcement of her departure from E!’s fashion talk show, visiting CBS’s The Talk to co-host a segment that aired Tuesday, alongside her mother, Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood.

When Chen asked how she was feeling about the recent news, Osbourne responded: “It was the five best working years of my life. I’m so grateful for the experience.”

The TV personality also saluted her late mentor and co-host Joan Rivers, who was replaced by comedian Kathy Griffin.

“Working with Joan Rivers for five years was incredible. I learned so much,” she told the hosts, also adding that she is looking forward to a new chapter in her life. “I’m excited for my future now. I want to try new things.”

The network announced on Feb. 27 that Osbourne would end her run after four seasons, saying that the star was leaving in order to “pursue other opportunities.” Her decision to exit came in the wake of controversy surrounding cohost Giuliana Rancic, who made racially charged remarks about Zendaya’s dreadlocks on the 2015 Oscars red carpet.

Fashion Police is still scheduled to return on March 30, although no announcement has been made regarding a replacement for Osbourne.
