Is Zendaya Capitalizing on the Giuliana Rancic Controversy?

There's no such thing as bad press, remember?

Giuliana Rancic’s joke about Zendaya’s dreadlocks on Fashion Police may have been a blessing in disguise. At least for Zendaya. The 18-year-old actress and singer got major exposure she wasn’t anticipating, and now may be benefiting from it.

The Gossip Table explains how Zendaya is being approached with more business opportunities than ever before, and we can imagine the way she handled the situation with maturity and grace helped. She’s had interview after interview and has appeared on shows such as The View, where she was asked about her rumored collaboration with Taylor Swift. (She beat around the bush, but you know that would be huge for her.)

She’s even been sounding off on what she hopes to see in the future of Fashion Police, saying: “If they are able to enlighten themselves and make it a better Fashion Police, then that’s positive and good. That’s what we want.” Does this mean she’ll be considered as one of the show’s new hosts?

Whether she’s purposely capitalizing on the situation or not, you can’t deny that if you didn’t know who Zendaya was, you definitely did after everything happened.

Pizza is bae. And yes, I still say bae.
