The definition of a good daughter!
Kelly Osbourne is in an extremely great place in her life, between her Fashion Police gig and being engaged, so she’s able to look back on her padded-cell past and gain some wisdom from it.
Which really helped her when she had to take care of her Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne!
The TV personality told Cosmo UK:
"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. 'I said, 'F— you, career, hello, Mother.' I became my mum's nurse 24/7. I gave her injections and medicines when she had seizures. I even had a parking space at the hospital with my name on it. I thought I was going to lose her – it was awful."
Wow! She’s gone through so much and she’s only 28-years-old!
Then, in 2003, she had to take care of her DAD who got into a quad accident, saying:
"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."
And in typical HIGHlarious Kelly fashion, she added:
"Not many people can say they've wiped their mother and father's arses more than they've wiped their own.”
This group definitely had as far from a normal upbringing as you can imagine, but they all made it through, and Kelly's parents have some wonderful kids to show for it.
