Also sitting down with E! to reveal the private side of Kelly are her mother, Sharon; her father, Ozzy; her brother, Jack, and one of her closest friends. The E! Entertainment Special: Kelly Osbourne premieres on November 20 at 11:00 PM on E!.
Jack Osbourne on Kelly’s thirst for fame:
“She will probably kill me for saying this…but the truth is that Kelly really wanted to be famous.”
Sharon Osbourne on Kelly’s unusual upbringing:
“When Kelly was one month old, she was on a plane to see her dad in Palm Springs at Betty Ford Center. She wasn’t the average child from the average home.”
Kelly on her pre-teen years:
“I never really felt like I fit in anywhere, because I didn’t want to be a popular kid, I was clearly not a jock, not smart enough to be a nerd…and it was just very uncomfortable for me.”
Kelly on her mother’s battle with cancer:
“My dad is at home losing it because his biggest fear in the world is to lose my mom…it’s his biggest fear. And my brother couldn’t handle it…so, I was always just there trying to figure out: how they hell am I going to deal with this?”
Kelly on her self-esteem issues:
“I did take care of everyone else but myself. But that’s because I hated myself- I didn’t like myself at all…in any way.”
Jack on Kelly’s drug addiction:
“It hadn’t been an easy battle for Kelly. She wasn’t one of these people that went into treatment once and it worked. Kelly’s had to go in a few times.”
Kelly’s “Dancing With The Stars” partner, Louis van Amstel:
“I don’t think I’ve ever been more proud of anyone ever than Kelly Osbourne.”
