Kelly Osbourne: It's funny dancing changed me

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne still finds it hard to believe that ballroom dancing taught her to find herself.

The reality TV star took part in popular US show Dancing with the Stars alongside professional dancer Louis van Amstel in 2009.

Kelly - who battled an addiction to prescription painkillers - credits the show with turning her life around.

"Louis taught me so much," she told the Lifestyle Mirror, explaining that he taught her how to eat healthy and work hard.

"'Cause who ever thought that Kelly f**king Osbourne would find themselves through ballroom dancing? I like myself now, and that's all that matters."

Kelly joined Joan Rivers on E!'s Fashion Police in 2010, where she and her fellow hosts discuss what's hot and what's not in the celebrity fashion world.

The 28-year-old feels lucky to be part of the weekly chat show.

"I have the best job in the world. Joan and Melissa [Rivers], G [Giuliana Rancic] and George [Kotsiopoulos] are my second family," she gushed.

"I'm finally starting to realise that it's a fashion-based comedy show. Joan tells the joke, I give the perspective of the eccentric youth, Giuliana gives the perspective of the modern day woman, and George is the style expert."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Scorpio:

You prefer to work out problems in secret, with no interference from friends and family. It's not that you don't respect other people's opinions. You simply know intuition is your best guide. In the past, you followed conventional wisdom, only to regret your choice. Don't make this mistake now, when there is an important career matter before you. Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
