Kelly Osbourne, who I have to whole-heartedly say is looking fecking sweet these days, is the latest cover model for Shape magazine – the magazine, if you’ll remember, who apologized recently for having LeAnn Rimes on its cover because they had second thoughts about promoting a homewrecker.
The, you know, far-less-controversial and always-angelic Kelly Osbourne, however, is a good fit for the mag’s cover this month, obviously, and it’s all due to her svelte new figure that she just can’t stop showing off.
On what inspired Kelly to lose the excess weight:
“I was called fat and ugly in the press almost my entire life. I understand that being judged by others comes with the territory, but it broke my heart and ruined my self esteem. 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.”
On figuring out what worked best for her body:
“He [her partner on Dancing With the Stars] made me eat turkey burgers and salads…Then I started losing weight and realized, ‘Oh, it’s true what they say: Diet and exercise really work!’?”
On how she feels about her body now:
“I used to eat chips and cookies and drink soda all day long … I had to start making better choices. [Now] I indulge with pizza and cheese—I love Brie—and have cookies sometimes. But now, when I’m full? I stop eating! It may have taken me 26 years to figure it out, but I’ve finally learned how to do it right.”
On being able to fit into sample clothing:
“Now every designer will send me anything that I want, and I can’t believe that I am in this situation. I opened up all of these zip bags last night from Marchesa — off the runway — and I can’t believe that it fits me.”
Good for you, Kelly. You definitely deserve the – finally – good publicity.
