On a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, set to air Monday, Kelly Osbourne opens up about her family shared battle with drugs and alcohol and overcoming obstacles.
"I was ashamed of myself. I didn't want to tell my parents," said Kelly.
After years of seeing her father Ozzy struggle with his addictions, it became hard to face her own demons!
"My mom had been in a relationship with my father for years and years trying to get him sober. I was completely ashamed that I would have to go to her and now tell her that her daughter has issues as well," she continued. "I felt like I let her down – but what I didn't realize was that if I would have went to her a long time ago, she would have helped me no matter what."
The Dancing with the Stars contestant first experimented with drugs at 13, which spiraled out of control during the filming of The Osbournes and became a coping mechanism to deal with public disparagement regarding her weight.
"It was a lot for me to handle," divulged Kelly, "and I didn't handle it very well."
At least, she's learned!
Keep up the good work, bb!
