Fans of the long-running hit makeover show What Not to Wear were shocked when Clinton Kelly admitted in his new memoir that he “loathed” his co-host, Stacy London. But former viewers seemed to have missed the signs!
As RadarOnline.com reported, Kelly, 47, told all about his tumultuous relationship with London in his new book, I Hate Everyone, Except You. "I either adored her or despised her, and never anything in between,” he admitted. He blamed the long hours and her attention-seeking ways for the feud.
It seems fans missed the signs of a rift. Despite ten years as constant companions, the former friends do not follow each other on Twitter.
The pair hasn’t been spotted together publicly since March 2015 — but only when London, 47, made a public appearance on Kelly’s current show, The Chew.
He’s also given hints of bad blood in the past. After working together for ten years straight, Kelly ripped into his co-host in a 2013 interview. “We have had our ups and downs quite frankly. There were some seasons where we just could not look at each other,” he admitted. “Actually, I feel like that was one season to be perfectly honest.”
In 2014, a year after the show wrapped, Kelly confessed he didn’t miss his former gig at all. “Some of the contributors were very difficult and negative and that meant the week could be hard,” he said. “So you’re stuck all week with this person who was carrying around this negative energy. It could be stressful. I don’t miss that.”
He also appreciates the space from London. "There’s a part of me that will love Stacy London forever, and a part of me that would be just fine if I never saw her again for the rest of my life," he writes.
Kelly had drama on his new show as well. When southern chef Paula Deen visited The Chew in early 2015, he said she acted like a “f***ing b***h” while filming.
