Osbourne Family Matters

Osbourne Family Matters


In anticipation of The Osbournes: Loud and Dangerous on Fox, we asked actress/musician Kelly Osbourne to share the parental wisdom she remembers most:

1."If they don't leave you alone, tell them that your dad is going to come to school and bite their heads off." That was my mum's advice for when people bullied me. It didn't work.

2."Never sleep with your knickers on because you need to let your body breathe." Hearing that from my mum as a child made me think that my vagina actually "breathed" and frightened me so much that to this day I never sleep without knickers on.

3."Never take sexy pictures of yourself, write steamy love letters, or make a sex tape." My mother taught me this years before sex tapes became a Hollywood trend.

4. "Never go number two on a tour bus." As kids on tour with my dad, he told us that all your waste goes into a tank that doesn't get emptied often. I once experienced what happens when someone does go number two: The smell came out of the air vents, and to this day we still call the unknown pooer the Mystery Log Rider. I know you're out there somewhere.

5. "Take all our luxuries away, and at the end of the day, all we have is each other." You never know what is going to happen. But I do know I'll always have my family.
