Kelly Osbourne’s family starred in one of the first reality shows ever, so she’s no stranger to public criticism, and isn’t afraid to speak her mind!
Right now Kelly isn’t on a regular, weekly show, but she was in the clubhouse with Andy Cohen for Monday night’s Watch What Happens Live. Kelly was promoting her new memoir, There Is No F*cking Secret: Letters From A Badass Bitch!
Us Weekly shared the excerpt which read, “I’ve kept quiet about my Lyme disease, not only for fear of pharmaceutical companies coming after me because of the cure I found in Germany but also because it seems like the trendy disease to have right now, and I’m tired of seeing sad celebrities play the victim on the cover of weekly mags. Since I know firsthand how awfully debilitating it is, I know who really has it and who is just trying to prolong their 15 minutes. I don’t understand how anyone could think that the life you have to live with Lyme disease is glamorous.”
Of course, Andy asked Kelly if Yolanda was the target of her rage in the section in above, and she quickly shut down claims of a feud, and revealed that they are actually friendly!
“Absolutely not,” Kelly asserted. Elaborating, “I actually helped Yolanda. I put her in contact with the doctor who helped me. What annoys me is this is a real, real disease. It almost killed me and it’s incredible and you know this better than anyone how someone can take one sentence and make it seem so negative. And nothing about it is negative because I will do anything to raise awareness for it because I almost died from it and it is a debilitating disease that most of the time goes misdiagnosed,” Kelly explained.
I’m glad to hear that Kelly wasn’t writing about Yolanda, but now I’m curious to hear who she’s calling out! It’s tricky when it comes to judging someone’s health, because it’s really no one’s business how another person handles their battle; yet I can also see why Kelly gets so heated!
Usually I’m not a fan of Kelly’s, but Monday night’s WWHL was a fun episode and Andy brought out a good side of her!
