Kelly Osbourne on struggles with weight and drugs

Kelly Osbourne, who checked into rehab for drug and alcohol addiction three times, told US Weekly she had a harder time dealing with her weight.

“I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict,” the former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant said. “I will never understand that.”

She recalls one painful incident involving a teenager who screamed “You’re fat” to her from a car window.

Osbourne, 25, who lost 42 pounds with portion control and exercise, said, “I’m really proud to look in the mirror and not hate every single thing I see.”

Osbourne’s diet and workout plan will be featured in US Weekly Friday.

    So happy for you Kelly! I'm sure your folks are SO proud of you for lots of reasons, but mainly because they see how you're trying to make your way in this world by doing it the right way.

    Getting healthy and being happy are a great way to be. Keep up the good work.

    FYI: You were wonderful on DWTS. I had never watched the show but was hooked watching you dance. You've grown into such a lovely young lady.

    By Today's standards, Marylin Monroe would be considered fat.Women are suposed to have curves. I don't think Kelley was ever Fat, just rounder. I blame the Media

    You go Kelly, I did not follow your life much until you were on DWTS I was rooting for you all the way. You are so cute, we all do stupid things growing up. I had a weight problem all my life, then I figured it out it is not about losing the weight as much as it is about being comfortable in your own skin and loving yourself. Once you can do that the weight will drop off. You are so lovable and easy to love, I don't even know you and I love you...love yourself as much as others love you....your worth it.

    Hey Moron Mark who wrote: " February 24th, 2010 2:35 pm ET

    Because being overweight and offensive are the same thing, "head diva"?

    NO – because she was a young foul mouthed girl who is growing into a beautiful healthy women. Not because she was over weight. Pay attention and use your reading comprehension.

    Wow...and I was trying to be nicer for lent. 🙂 – Joke.

    Nice to see she's making efforts to be healthy, but she's still completely talentless. If her father wasn't Ozzy Osbourne, no one.... and I mean NO ONE would have EVER heard of Kelly.

    Kelly...love yourself for who you are. I saw you on DWTS and loved you from day one. But, mostly I loved each time you walked over to your daddy and kissed him. I lost my dad 4 yrs ago and I still miss him. Hugs n Kisses....stay true to yourself. 🙂

    the United States accepts a weird standard of weight and beauty.
    for example, i am a 19 year old male, and am 6 feet tall. medically speaking, they say i should weight around 155-160. i weigh 170 and feel too skinny!!!
    what's up?

    What's sad is everyone that feeds the sterotype. Why now is she ok.

    She either was or wasn't depending you on what you thought of her.

    Imagine is the last thing you should look at.

    I'd rather you hate me that decide by my appearance whether I'm worthy enough.

    I was not impressed with Kelly when I saw her a few times on the "Osbornes". But when she came out on Dancing with the Stars, she seemed to have blossomed into a beautiful young lady. What a delightful change – she's really quite stunning.

    Since the comment of the person that said fat and offensive are the same thing, I conclude that you must be fat...because I find your comments very offensive! Think before you speak!

    Head Diva – What does being foul mouthed have to do with anything? I don't see it having anything to do with the exercise and portion control Kelly Osbourne practiced to get herself healthy. Just because someone uses words YOU might not approve of doesn't make them unhealthy.

    Don't you love when people attempt to come off sounding legit and then they go and screw it up with an insulting comment? See "Head Diva in Charge"...

    @ Kelly – Keep up the good work, you're looking righteous. 🙂
