Kelly Osbourne Opens Up About Troubled Past: I Wanted The Drugs ‘All To Myself’

23 Jul

Kelly Osbourne is all about speaking her mind and her latest interview with Cosmopolitan U.K. is no exception.

Gracing the publication’s September 2013 issue, the Fashion Police host opens up about her past drug addiction and how her mother, Sharon Osbourne, even had her placed in a padded room in order to help her kick the habit.

“I’ve been to rehab seven times and to two mental institutions. My mum even had me put in a padded cell once to scare me, but like a brat I just sat it out until she said, ‘Well, that’s not going to work’,” the 28-year-old tells the magazine. “But what I’ve learnt is that no amount of therapy or medication is going to work unless you want it to. Until you want to be a good person, you will never be one.”

She explains, “I was never one of those people who was like, ‘Let’s party; let’s go and do loads of coke.’ In fact, I would never even tell anyone I had drugs because I wanted them all to myself. I was quite selfish.”

Speaking candidly about the moments that made her want to turn her life around, Kelly says that she realized she needed to change after taking care of her sick her parents.

“When I was 18, I was set to play Lindsay Lohan‘s best friend in Freaky Friday. Then my mum got diagnosed with cancer. I was faced with the choice of a career or spending what could have been the last days of my mother’s life with her,” she says. “I said, ‘F**k you, career, hello, Mother’. I became my mum’s nurse 24/7. I thought I was going to lose her – it was awful.”

And after her dad, rocker Ozzy Osbourne, had an accident on his all-terrain vehicle in 2003, Osbourne remembers how she care fro him: “He couldn’t move from the neck down and was basically a paraplegic, so I slept on the floor by the side of his bed for four months. I brushed his teeth and washed his clothes, and every day we’d put on our swimsuits and I’d shower him.”

“Not many people can say they’ve wiped their mother and father’s arses more than they’ve wiped their own,” she adds.

Megan Fox Is Pregnant Again

9 Jul

Pulling a slightly slowed-down version of Jessica Simpson, Megan Fox confirmed late Thursday that she and her husband Brian Austin Green are expecting their second child together just 10 months after welcoming son Noah.

“I can confirm Megan is expecting her second child with her husband Brian. They are both very happy,” a rep for the actress told The New York Post.

The pregnancy is apparently still in its early stages, which means that Fox’s work on Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles won’t be impacted, according to the report. Which kind of plays out like all those times my dad wouldn’t let me skip school because I didn’t study for my economics exam. But, congrats either way.

Amanda Bynes’ Parents Visit Her at Hospital During Her Psychiatric Hold

27 Jun

A day after being placed on psychiatric hold, Amanda Bynes got a bid of support from family.

The troubled actress’ parents, mother Lynn Organ and father Rick Bynes, paid a visit to their daughter Tuesday at the medical facility in Los Angeles, Calif., where she is being held for for mental evaluation after allegedly starting a fire in a driveway of Thousand Oaks residential neighborhood.

Ventura County sheriff’s deputies detained Bynes, 27, Monday on an 5150 hold, which under California medical code, is applicable when “any person, as a result of mental disorder, is a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled.” Though said hold typically last up to 72 hours, authorities could seek extend it for up to two weeks if they can show she is a danger to herself, according to the L.A. Times.

Bynes has long had a volatile relationship with her parents: In her late teens, she sought to legally emancipate herself from them before withdrawing her petition. Throughout her recent months of bizarre behavior and trouble with the law, the former Nickelodeon star has claimed that she is not in contact with her parents. “I don’t speak to my parents anymore,” she tweeted in April. “They don’t talk to reporters on my behalf.”

While she wasn’t charge for the fire incident, Bynes is still facing several legal woes. She faces charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and possession of marijuana following her May arrest, when she reportedly tossed a bong from her Manhattan apartment. After a court date earlier this month, the former Nickelodeon star has another hearing set for Sept. 26.

The actress also has a DUI case pending in California, was sentenced to three years’ probation in May for driving with a suspended license in May, and had two separate hit-and-run charges against her dismissed in late 2012.

Kristin Cavallari Talks About Pulling Off A Secret Wedding And Why A ‘Laguna Beach’ Reunion Will (Probably) Never Happen

30 May

Kristin Cavallari is used to keeping reality storylines on the down-low, but when it came to her own real-life wedding story she shocked even herself that she was able to pull off getting hitched without a hitch.

“I’m kinda surprised we did,” the blonde beauty told Celebuzz. “We only invited our closest friends and family and we just told everybody not to tell anyone.”

Cavallari and her football player hubby Jay Cutler, who got engaged in 2011, tied the knot June 8 at the Woodmont Christian Church in Nashville, Tenn., a locale close to their hearts.

“We live in Nashville during he off season,” she said. “We had a vintage-y, rustic-y wedding, I found this awesome warehouse with cool exposed brick walls. It just felt right.”

So, how’s life as a newlywed? “It’s great! It feels the exact same,” she laughed.

The 26-year-old shoe designer has had a busy year organizing her hush-hush nuptials and giving birth to the Cutler family’s first baby, Camden on August 8, 2012 – but don’t expect this pro planner to plan any elaborate first birthday celebrations.

“We’re not big on having big birthday parties for babies, probably when he’s five we’ll do something when he can remember it,” said Cavallari.

But this mom knows her baby boy can’t have his big day without one special present.

“Maybe I’ll make him a little healthy cake because I’m a heath nut… and just hang out. He’s at such a great age right now where everything is so new and exciting for him and hearing him laugh is the best thing in the world.”

The League guest star says she’s going to stick with scripted TV for now and although she’d be up for a Laguna Beach reunion she’s pretty sure that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

“I feel like I did it when I was single, but now I have a baby and a husband it’s so far behind me… those days are over, which is good they need to be over,” she said laughing.

“I would actually be interested in doing a Laguna Beach reunion… But I don’t think they’ll have us do it because I think it’ll come out how fake it was… it just wouldn’t work,” she continued. “But I would love to, I think it would be fun.”

So we’ll just have to keep crossing our fingers.

Is Simon Cowell About to Become a Father?

27 May

Simon Cowell, the notoriously mean judge from American Idol and now The X Factor, is apparently expecting a child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman.

“[Silverman’s] around 10 weeks along,” a source for US Weekly said Wednesday.

US Weekly also points out on numerous, not-exactly-subtle occasions that Silverman is still married to Cowell’s close friend, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman. Technically, anyway.

“Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while,” a source said. “As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close.”

Congrats?

Billy Ray Cyrus is officially mending his “Achy Breaky Heart.”

That’s right. Miley Cyrus‘ parents, Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus, are back on. E! News reports that the pair, who filed for divorce this past June, are trying to make their marriage work.

Billy Ray and Tish were married 22 years before announcing their separation, but it looks like they’re rekindling the flame through couples therapy.

“I spoke to Tish and she told me they both woke up and realized they love each other and decided they want to stay together,” Ken Baker of E! News reports. “They recently went into couples therapy, something they hadn’t done in 22 years of being together, and it’s brought them closer together and really opened up their communication in amazing ways.”

Tish posted a cute photo of her and Billy Ray on Instagram Sunday night, captioning the photo “Date Night.”

Aww.

While Miley’s parents were out on the town, she was busy living life in Londontown to the fullest.

The “We Can’t Stop” singer was in the UK to promote her new music, and it seems like she truly enjoyed herself.

Miley partied with fellow pop singer Nicole Scherzinger, hit up Chanel, met some “Smilers,” and posed in some pretty risque outfits along the way.

Prince William On His Son: ‘We’re Still Working On A Name’

12 May

A day after giving birth to her son, the Duchess of Cambridge left St. Mary’s Hospital in London alongside Prince William and the heir, bundled in a blanket.

Just like his parents did in 1982, William showed his family off briefly before they left in a car for Kensington Palace.

Earlier, both sets of grandparents popped over to the Lindo wing for a visit. Carole Middleton gushed about her grandson, calling him “absolutely beautiful,” and telling the press that the first cuddle was amazing, according to the BBC‘s Peter Hunt.

The Prince of Wales was equally as delighted about his son’s new child, hinting to the press that all three would be out soon enough.

“Wait and see, you’ll see in a minute,” Prince Charles told reporters when he left.

Hospital staff joined the crowds behind barricades before William and Catherine came out to answer a few questions. Catherine was visibly moved by the outpouring of excitement. Her Royal Highness appeared to fight back tears as people cheered on her new family.

William told members of the press that he and his wife were “still working on a name,” while he held his son.

“He’s got her looks,” William said endearingly, and noted that he had “a good pair of lungs on him, that’s for sure.”

“I’ll remind him of his tardiness when he gets older,” William joked, acknowledging that Baby Cambridge was a wee bit overdue.

Afterwards, Will snapped his son in the carseat then hopped in the driver’s seat of a Range Rover en route to Kensington Palace.

What Kate Wore and HELLO! Magazine noted that Catherine wore a light blue dress by Jenny Packham with La Pierre Imperia wedges.
