Kelly Osbourne collapsed on the set of ‘Fashion Police’, might have had a seizure

Every so often, I’ll get it in my head that something is seriously wrong with me and I’ll obsess about it for like a week and then I’m over it. Currently, my obsession is that I’m going to have a stroke. I have no basis for this fear other than I was reading an article about strokes. I’m just saying – with this story, my new crazy obsession is going to be visualizing myself having a seizure. Yesterday, something happened to Kelly Osbourne while she was filming an episode of Fashion Police. She collapsed and either had a seizure or something that looked a lot like a seizure. Poor Kelly:

Kelly Osbourne was just rushed to an L.A. hospital after suffering a seizure while taping her show “Fashion Police.”

An ambulance rushed to the scene and Kelly was taken away by stretcher. People held up white sheets to shield her from the media and a white sheet was covering her entire body, including her face.

Kelly was sitting in a chair, shooting the show in front of a full studio audience. Melissa Rivers was sitting next to her, filling in for Giuliana Rancic. Kelly turned to Melissa and said, “I don’t feel good,” and then she fell out of the chair and started shaking. Melissa then turned Kelly’s head to help her. Someone from the audience — some kind of emergency responder — then ran up and helped.

Kelly came around a few moments later, but her handlers wanted to have her hospitalized anyway. We’re told it’s the first time Kelly has ever suffered a seizure.

The incident occurred at the E! building on Wilshire Blvd., just before noon.

We do not know what triggered the episode. As for her condition, it’s unknown … but Joan Rivers — who was also present on set when Kelly suffered the seizure — tells TMZ, “She is fine. We just saw her.”

[From TMZ]

That’s incredible scary, especially for someone without any kind of history of seizures. There are any number of reasons why Kelly might have had a seizure or a seizure-like collapse, so please everyone, don’t jump to the conclusion of “drugs” or “epilepsy”. I will say this though – every so often, the tabloids claim that Kelly is still using and abusing drugs and alcohol, although I’ve often thought the ‘bloids were full of it. I was just putting that out there – I have no idea if that’s what happened here.

Meanwhile, Kelly’s rep told E! News last night (hours after Kelly had been hospitalized): “Kelly Osbourne fainted on the set of E!’s Fashion Police today. She was taken to a local hospital for further testing and is awake, alert and in stable condition. She will be staying overnight for observation as a precautionary measure. There are no further details at this time.” So, no mention of a seizure, just “fainting”. OK. Send out some good thoughts to Kelly!

    I sincerely hope Kelly is alright! By the looks of her Twitter she seems to be in good spirits, which is always a good sign.
    My old training partner had a hypoglycaemic seizure once when he didn’t eat at all during a sportive and bonked. Just another armchair diagnosis to consider!
    Best wishes to Kelly and her family. I can’t imagine this is coming at a particularly brilliant time, considering her brother’s diagnosis (not that there really is an ideal time to faint or have a seizure.)

    good thoughts to kelly.

    you can experience a seizure as an adult from childhood concussions. at least that’s what a doctor told me. scared the ever living hell out of me because i was a clumsy head banger.

    • MonicaQ says:

      Aw damn, I’ve had about 9 in my life playing football–ironically more in pads than I have in contact flag football. Well, something else to be worried about besides the blown out knee and separated shoulder -.-

      Get better Kelly. You and the other chick on the show are the only people on Fashion Police I can deal with because I just can’t with Joan Rivers and the dude next to her.

    • Hakura says:

      @Poppy – “you can experience a seizure as an adult from childhood concussions.

      …I had never heard that. In 1st grade, while on recess in school, I (was tiny) was running but looking back at my friends, where-as a rather stocky boy was doing the same, trying to catch a football. We ran SMACK into eachother, but where-as he brushed himself off & got up, I couldn’t. I crawled on my knees toward the teachers, but passed out face down on the cement. -_- I had to be picked up by ambulance & taken to the hospital. Definitely counts as a childhood concussion.

      About 2yrs ago, I was home on my computer, sitting on a stool, & had a sudden seizure. Lost consciousness & fell onto the floor (which made a crashing sound & is the only reason anyone found me). We just assumed it had to be some accidental overdose or something, since we couldn’t think of anything else.

      About a year later, I had another seizure (out of nowhere), so they thought I had meds that were mixing badly, or some dosage was too high, or just an accidental OD of prescribed meds, taking them too soon, or something. But the idea that my previous head injury could’ve been involved in any way is interesting to consider.

    Haha that’s what she gets for being a overweight drug addict. I don’t feel bad for her at all. Karma is a real bitch!

    • Lolly says:

      And the award for bitchiest post ever goes to…

    • SW says:

      Karma is a bi*ch, like you apparently. Can’t wait for Karma to catch up with you!

    • Lynn says:

      I am glad or here’s thought this was a tasteless, unnessisary comment. I have seen a lot of siezers and they are scary. Lips go blue, eyes roll back, body siezes up and shakes or sometimes not. They wake up confused, weak… might have urinated on themselves or crapped their pants. Cause the body losses all control. Wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

      • I REALLY CAN’T BELIEVE HOW HEARTLESS SOME PEOPLE ARE.MY DAUGHTER HAS HAD SEIZURES FOR 3 YEARS BEFORE THEY FOUND OUT WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HER.THIS WAS ON AN EVERY DAY BASIS.THE DOCTORS SAID SHE HAD MENTAL PROBLEMS .EVERY DOCTOR WE WENT TO Said the same without even looking into it futher.i took her to three hospitals one night because my daughter started talking out of her head.she started telling me my son was telling her funny things and he was playing son died 3 days before.the doctors than found out her brain was shrinking and she had excessive fluids around her brain and also that she was missing the bottom part of her brain an had a tumour on the front part of her brain which no doctor wants to touch in fear that her brain will also that she needed a shunt put in to run from her brain to her stomach to get the fluids to flow right.she has been through 3 operations on her brain since than.she was 23 when this happened she is now 35 years old.she was a straight a student who went on to get her masters an now has 2 jobs working as a social worker for cancer paients an troubled teen agers.she also has a 3 year old boy that she is raising by herself.she is a terrific mom! i tell you all this because no one should judge because you really don’t know whats going on with a person.i understand if you dislike a person but saying that that was good for her.i think you better check your values………..may god bless the souls of the haters!

    • Steve says:

      You are so right karma is a bitch and she wears 6 inch spike heals so watch out you have a sharp tounge and she might be looking for you next karma that is ! Ps this is your conscience speaking !

  4. smartyparty says:

    Kaiser I know exactly what you mean about feeling like something is wrong with you, I get the same way. Whenever I feel any strange sensation or headache I think “Brain aneurism!” or something equally redic. Glad to know I am not the only one.

    I sincerely hope Kelly is in good health and that this was a minor thing. And Britney (comment #3) what an ugly thing to say. You are talking about karma and THAT is how you comment? You obviously have no understanding of what you speak of.

  5. Darcy says:

    It may not have been a seizure. I get all twitchy like that when I faint, and it’s just something I’m prone to when my body is stressed, not indicative of a serious illness.

    • Laura says:

      Yeah, the one time I fainted my husband thought I was having a seizure (his sister has epilepsy, so he was freaking out and called the paramedics) – but it turns out I was just being twitchy, which is completely normal when you faint. Pretty sure my episode was triggered by low blood sugar…

  6. Rhea says:

    Whether it’s seizure or not,I hope she’s okay. My son once had a seizure because of a high fever. What a nightmare it was for me who never once see a seizure happening to people in my life except in the movie.
    I could relate with what her family must be feeling hearing her condition.

  7. lucy2 says:

    My friend’s son just has a seizure out of the blue, and they’ve run a zillion tests and can’t find anything wrong with him. Scary.
    Hope Kelly is OK, and if there is some sort of issue, she gets better.

  8. Eleonor says:

    My theory: she is going to get marry right? Is it possible she is on some strict diet??

  9. Jag says:

    Some diet pills and energy drinks have been causing seizures and even heart attacks. My guess – and it’s just a guess because I don’t know her – is that she’s taking diet aids to remain thin and they caught up with her.

    • Meow Mix says:

      This was my first thought as well. Or the other possibility (this happened to me when I was younger) is that if she smokes and takes birth control pills she could have had an ITA.

    • DreamyK says:

      I guess she got hit on the head by some rocks at her hotel late last year? Brain injuries are weird. Seems like the window for that has passed, though?

      I will say this: I’ve never known anyone who had out of the blue seizures at her age.

      Dehydration can certainly do that to a person, but then she would have dry mouth and wouldn’t have enough spit to do her show?

      She is built like a fire plug: short and stocky. It must take tremendous effort on her part to keep her weight down. Also, her fiance is, in my opinion, gaunt. Some ladies freak out about their weight when with a man who is on the slim side.

      • WickedSteppMom says:

        1 out of every 10 people will have a seizure at some point in their life, for some reason, and many will *never* know the reason why. It can happen to anyone, of any age, from infancy to elderly. Some will go on to have more seizures & be diagnosed w/epilepsy (1 person every 4 minutes) and some will never have another seizure.

        It bothers me that people take a possible seizure so lightly just because this woman has a history of diet/drug issues. That doesn’t make her any less worthy of care. There are more deaths from seizures/seizure-related illness/injury annually than from breast cancer (significantly more), yet people feel the need to brush it off as “she probably didn’t eat enough, she probably took some pills.” Her brother has a neurological condition, so it’s really not that far of a stretch that she also could, especially after receiving a head injury (and yes, the seizures can manifest months, or years after the injury.)

  10. Talie says:

    I think the reason for suspicion comes from her reps statement… I’m pretty sure TMZ has the right story, so it’s a bit strange not to address the seizure.

  11. Bedge says:

    A faint can look like a seizure. Generally after a neurological seizure, the person is dazed a confused for a while. After a faint, you generally know where you are and what’s going on very soon after. In a lot of cases, people will have a warning/aura when about to have a siezure, although a faint can happen before you know whats hit you. One seizure doesn’t mean epilepsy. Just some general guide lines from someone who has unfortunately been down that path …

    • Sisi says:

      Yea my dad once fainted and it looked like he was having a seizure or a stroke. He was shaking, utterly disorganised, slurring. Very scary. Turned out he just had Noro-virus and needed to throw up so badly that there was enormous pressure on his nerves. He just fainted, but it looked AWFUL, like worst of the worst awful. After some mindblowing projectile vomiting, he was totally fine.

      Hope Kelly is doing okay.

    • WickedSteppMom says:

      In the 25 years I’ve been having seizures, I’ve never had an aura-which is very common. It really depends on the person. I do have confusion during to postictal period afterwards though. My daughter has a completely different type of seizures than I do, and she doesn’t get an aura before OR the confusion afterwards, and never even knows she’s had a seizure unless we tell her.

  12. MissHayley says:

    When I was 16, I was getting blood drawn for a routine physical and the exact same thing happened to me. I was only out for a half a minute but they said there was “seizure-like behavior”. Tests showed nothing abnormal whatsoever and I’ve not had any episodes like it since . . . Doctors finally said I probably had not eaten enough that day. I sincerely hope that this is what Kelly has experienced, and that she will be on the mend soon.

  13. ojulia123 says:

    Oh, I hope she’s okay!

  14. Annie says:

    If it’s true that she has a drinking problem and then she quit cold turkey, the seizures could be from withdrawal. Kinda like what happened to Mindy McCreedy on Celebrity Rehab.

  15. T.C. says:

    Sounds very scary for the poor girl. I hope she’s O.K. I don’t know why her reps want to change the story from a seizure to fainting. There is no shame in having a medical problem like a seizure.

  16. janie says:

    Good thoughts for Kelly.. She is a sweet girl & has come a long way with her sobriety. There is no karma at work!

  17. cecizahn says:

    Oh poor Kelly. Here in Mexico, a newspaper wrote that it was due to a panic attack

  18. Mandy says:

    Poor thinkg! I hope she feels better soon and that this is nothing serious.

  19. KellyinSeattle says:

    I love Kelly and hope she’s all right.

  20. Mew says:

    Was told not to jump into conclusions about drugs or epilepsy but I guess disordered eating could go on that list too. Wrong sort of dieting can raise the risks for seizure a lot.

    So scary for a young person. :/

  21. Chickenlishus says:

    She said atDM that rocks had fallen on her head from a hotel, and they gave her a $1000 bottle of champagne for the “inconvenience”. Nothing was said about the connection, but it is completely plausible this incident is related to her seizure.

  22. F5 says:

    She must have seen Joan w/o make-up D:

  23. Stef says:

    I hope she’s okay. I think Kelly is a good example of someone who transitioned from “child star” ish type fame to a decent self reliant person. If anyone remembers the show, she was a mess of a disaster, one of those kids you see going down a bad route in life and I think she definitely could have. But I think her gig with E! and her weight loss and everything kind of kept her on a semi decent track. I have no idea if there is any validity to whether she does drugs – she may, she may not. But for someone who i think had a lot stacked against her in terms of whether she’d be a success or whether she’d be a Lohan, I think she came out very well, looks healthy and happy and parlayed a nice little gig for herself within E!. I hope she gets better and all is okay.

    • Noi says:

      she was a child star? famous parents and a failed music career = child star please. no one paid her any mind until she got on DWS which she ain’t so to say ppl actual cared if she became a Lohan who at that time was ok is ridiculous.

  24. Jack says:

    i dont like her but i hope that she is ok. i dont wish this kind of thing on anyone.

  25. Lulu says:

    I do know that she has hyperthyroidism and the last we knew, she refused to medical treatment for it because it was keeping her thin.

    I have no idea if this is related, just throwing it out there.
