You may have heard that Kelly Osbourne had a rough patch for awhile. You may have also heard that she picked herself up from the bottom and looks as good today as ever.
Kelly has learned to survive through a wicked drug addiction and nasty remarks about her weight. Two things that she considered once went hand-in-hand.
The daughter of legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne said that prior to losing 48 pounds during Dancing With The Stars, she was often bullied about her weight and the negative feelings made her turn to drugs.
“I understand that being judged by others comes with the territory, but it broke my heart and ruined my self esteem,” she admitted. ”It sets you up to hate yourself in a huge way. I was so angry about the things people said about me. I truly believe it’s the main reason I turned to Vicodin and ended up in rehab three times. I just hated myself.”
It’s really great to see Kelly sharing her personal story to hopefully detour others from turning to drugs in order to cope with insecurities.
