“Then the next day, I had two glasses and then the next day I had bottles,” she said. “Like full bottles for yourself?” asked Willow Smith. “Yes,” Kelly replied.
“For the first two days, I could handle drinking one drink,” she continued. “And suddenly, everything was falling apart.” She realized she had a real problem after being “s—face” at her boyfriend’s house.
“He looked at me and I felt like he saw me. And I was like, ‘Oh no, I never want him to look at me that way again,'” she recalled. “He was disappointed, because he didn’t see that side of me. Hope you never see him again. It was embarrassing, because for the first time, I really care how he feels and I care about mine.” How behavior affects her. I just want to be the best version of myself to my family, my boyfriend and my friends. I was the farthest thing from her. I’ve never had a boyfriend who would support me in that area Ho.”
Osbourne explained that her “drug of choice is alcohol,” telling women that she’s a “closet drinker” who doesn’t really like being drunk with others. “That’s why it gets really dark and lonely,” she explained, “I like that it doesn’t make me feel. I want to be numb to everything,”
“I was introduced to alcohol because I came from an alcoholic family,” said Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter, who has been very open about her own demons. “I grew up with my father, if not probably the heaviest drinker I’ve ever seen in my life.”
She explained that her troubles began when the family moved to America at the age of 13. “I just fell over the edge,” she told Smith, “she didn’t really fit in,” felt “really, really insecure” and compared her experience to stepping into the movie “Clueless.” . After getting a really bad case of tonsillitis, she was given Vicodin and became addicted.
“That’s all I needed. I went to every voice in my head saying ‘You’re fat, you’re ugly’… and all of a sudden, every voice fell silent and felt like life had given me Hug,” she said. “Very quickly I went from Vicodin to Percocet, Percocet to Heroin because it was cheap. I was caught buying it and the very next day, my mom put me in rehab. I went to rehab for the first time. I was 19 years old. And I’ve been going in and out of those places ever since.”
Osbourne said, because of her addiction, she now feels “far behind as a woman” in life. “I would have liked to get married and have kids by now. My brother has three daughters and I would have loved to have some kids by now,” she said, “but that wasn’t in the cards for me. There was no mother.”
Talking more about her family, she said that she has always been a “daddy girl” and goes to him for “everything”. She notes that it’s “weird” how they turned an addiction like “so ugly” into “something that’s actually really beautiful” because of how they and Jack can bond over it. Jack recently celebrated 18 years of sobriety.
“I always tell her, I know it’s not a competition, but I’m so jealous of the way she’s handling her recovery,” she said of Jack, whom she said most of all. Credited with helping her recover after a recent relapse. .
Talking a little bit about her spartan journey, Osbourne also revealed how much mental adjustment she had to go through when she first cleaned up.
“I didn’t think I deserved to be in any room and then I put on so much weight, so I thought everyone looking at me was like, ‘She’s fat and disgusting,'” Kelly said. “You have to get in touch with the vulnerabilities and the things that triggered you. I’ve never gone to quiet work… so to do things again for the first time, it was really scary.”
She said that she actually took two years off from the spotlight and actually went to therapy to decide that she not only wanted to be sober, but also wanted “the life I’ve worked for and The opportunities that have been given to me and I don’t want to take another day lightly.”
Lastly, they touched on her gastric sleeve surgery and how it changed her outlook on life.
“It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. It re-trained my relationship with food,” she said. “[Now] I use it as fuel and something that is a reward. Just like I can get addicted to drugs, I can get addicted to food. Not having that passion is the best gift I have given myself out of moderation. I love my body now, I love what I’m changing and discovering new things I thought I’d never be able to do.”
