K.C. (Zendaya) makes an interesting lunch on the cafeteria table in this new still from tonight’s all-new K.C. Undercover.
In “Photo Bombed”, Marisa (Veronica Dunne) has been named a finalist in a photo contest and her winning photo could be in magazines and billboards everywhere. But there’s a problem — her entry photo is of K.C.!
This is also the ep where Marisa might find out about K.C.’s spy life!
“Photo Bombed” airs TONIGHT Sunday, February 22 @8:30 PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
While chatting with RyanSeacrest.com, the 17-year-old actress opened up about the topic.
“Can I just first of all start off by saying that Zendaya looked absolutely stunning and gorgeous at the Oscars,” Bella started out. “Her dress was also beautiful!”
She added, “I know Giuliana and I know Zendaya, and I know them both personally, and honestly Giuliana is a really sweet person. And Zendaya has been on Fashion Police as a guest and Giuliana just goes on and on about how much she loves her. So I think when Giuliana made that comment, although this doesn’t justify it in any way, I think that she didn’t mean it like that and it just came out wrong because she really loves Zendaya.”
Bella continued on, “People have to remember that there is so much criticism going out to teens and the way they look and the way they dress … people are just growing up. We’re all growing up. We’re all trying to find ourselves. So what? We make some mistakes. So what? We look good on a red carpet finally. We’re all trying to find ourselves here.”
Here’s what the 18-year-old actress wrote on Instagram, “Studies have shown that even though we try to act without prejudice, sometimes it’s just hidden inside us due to our past or surrounding. That hidden prejudice is often influential in our actions. it’s our job to spot these issues within others and ourselves and destroy them before they become hurtful. I have so many people looking up to me, that I couldn’t be scared, wait it out, nor could I just stand up for me; I had to do it for WE. It is in important in this journey, to remember that just because someone has inflicted hurt upon us, it does not give us the right to do the same.
“Body shaming and other hurtful tactics will never get the job done. As hard as it was to stop MYSELF from being ignorant and from posting the first mean words that came to my mind because I was hurt, I had to think about the bigger picture. Instead, I sat for two hours on my phone, doing my research and formulating an educated response.
“Giuliana, I appreciate your apology and I’m glad it was a learning experience for you and for the network. I hope thatothers negatively affected by her words can also find it in their hearts to accept her apology as well. From a quote we all know by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., ‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out have; only love can do that.’ Let’s be that light and spread that love.”
Zendaya is getting a ton of support from celebs after being the victim of some mean comments from Fashion Police co-host Giuliana Rancic and now one of her idols, India Arie, has written a lengthy blog post praising the young star.
When she slammed Giuliana‘s comments, Zendaya suggested that people listen to India’s song “I Am Not My Hair” before judging others.
“I wanted to jump in and defend Zendaya – but she’s doing that BEAUTIFULLY herself. VERY. WELL. DONE. It’s a powerful thing to be a TEENAGER in the public eye, and feel empowered to speak up in your own defense. STUNNING!” India started off her post.

The 40-year-old TV personality apologized during a brief E! News segment, which you can watch below.
“I’d really like to address something that’s weighing really heavy on my heart. I want to apologize for a comment that I made on last night’s Fashion Police about Zendaya‘s hair,” she said. “As you know, Fashion Police is a show that pokes fun at celebrities in good spirit, but I do realize that something I said last night did cross the line.”
Giuliana continued, “I just want everyone to know that I didn’t intend to hurt anybody, but I learned it’s not my intent that matters. It’s the result. And the result is people are offended, including Zendaya. And that is not OK. Therefore, I want to say to Zendaya, and anyone else out there that I hurt, that I’m so sincerely sorry. This really has been a learning experience for me. I learned a lot today and this incident has taught me to be a lot more aware of cliches and stereotypes, and how much damage they can do. And that I am responsible, as we all are, to not perpetuate them further. Thank you for listening.”
