The Osbournes on Billy Ray Cyrus’ remarks on Miley: ‘really inappropriate’

Kelly and Sharon Osbourne were on the Piers Morgan show last night, and as these two have done so many times before, both individually and as a unit, they critiqued someone else. At least this one isn’t likely to result in a bitchy back and forth public feud. Piers asked the combative duo what they thought about Billy Ray Cyrus trashing his daughter’s route to fame, and Kelly called it “inappropriate” while Sharon said that Miley made her dad relevant again.

MORGAN: What do you make of what’s going on at the moment in Hollywood with — there’s two interesting things I thought for you guys to talk about. One, the Charlie Sheen thing, which is ongoing. And the second thing is what Billy Ray Cyrus said about Miley Cyrus, that he wished as a parent he had never let her go down the route she’s gone down, in terms of fame and stuff.

K. OSBOURNE: I think that’s a really inappropriate thing for someone to say, especially when what they did together gave that person their career back. And it’s not fair to do that to your own child.

MORGAN: Really?

K. OSBOURNE: It’s really inappropriate thing to say.

S. OSBOURNE: I do too. I don’t think he should have done that in print. He may think it. It might be, you know —

K. OSBOURNE: He might have meant it in a different way. But in black and white, it seems so just harsh, especially because I love Miley. She’s a dear friend of mine. I know how hard she works. She works so hard. I just think that that discredits everything she’s done in her life, not just for herself, but her whole family. It’s disrespectful.

MORGAN: She’s built an incredible career for herself. She’s very young.

S. OSBOURNE: She’s very talented.

K. OSBOURNE: And him.

S. OSBOURNE: Yes, she made him relevant again.


I don’t disagree with them. Last night I saw that HLN Showbiz Tonight show on in the background when I was eating out. There was no sound and I just saw the headline “Osbournes trash Billy Ray Cyrus” or something and figured they were talking smack as they always do. In reality they kind of said what a lot of people did about this controversy when it first came out. Billy Ray has since made up for this, but I don’t expect Kelly and Sharon to follow gossip as slavishly as we do and know every detail about it. Piers Morgan is stirring the pot, and you would think that he would be up on the news that Billy Ray has since backtracked from these comments.

In other Billy Ray Cyrus news, the mullet is still trying to make up for that same “Hannah Montana destroyed my family” GQ interview. He gave an interview to Parade and said that he just hopes Miley is happy. He’s no longer saying she should give up on fame. “As long as she’s happy and loving making music — and I know she loves acting — that’s all that matters.” That’s much different from saying that the show destroyed his family, that he was underpaid and that he would “erase it all [the fame] in a second if I could.”

He later explained that he was a “mess” when he did that GQ interview and compared talking to the press at that time to going grocery shopping when you’re hungry. I had a lot of respect for the guy after that and felt like he was just saying his piece and trying to do the best he could. He was hurt by the breakup of his marriage, he’s since gotten back together with his wife Tish and called off the divorce, and he’s trying to make nice now. It may have been “inappropriate” to say all that at first, but Piers didn’t do his homework by bringing up that controversy from February without mentioning that Billy Ray apologized nearly a month ago. Piers also never asked Kelly and Sharon about their separate issues with paying taxes and owing money to the government. Now that’s what I want to know about. I don’t care what they think about the royal wedding. (More on that here.)

Here’s Kelly talking about her drug problem and how she turned her life around. She has Bride of Frankenstein hair and major bulimia face! It’s like she’s piling the hair up on her head to distract from her cheeks. You don’t get those chipmunk cheeks from normal weight gain, but I guess she’s looked like that for a while. Sharon’s face looks like a mask. How long until Kelly starts messing with hers too?

    Well we all know the Osbournes are the epitome of good taste and class.
    *eye roll*

  2. jc126 says:

    Somehow, maybe it’s the eyeliner, Sharon and Kelly look alike in those pics, but I distinctly recall thinking that Kelly was the female version of Ozzy in a screenshot from DWTS. Like eerily so.

  3. Cherry Rose says:

    I will respect the Osbournes because they are deeply committed to their family. If one gets attacked, the others swoop in to defend. It’s nice that they don’t constantly release press statements about each other or constantly bicker in the media (ala Lohan family).

    Also, it’s been looking like Kelly is starting to gain back some weight that she previously lost.

    As for the chipmunk cheeks, she’s always had a very strong jaw, so I don’t know if it’s from that or because she’s bulimic.

  4. curmudgeon says:

    Much as I love Sharon Osbourne, her family is the epitome of poor taste in public. And her daughter is a cute but talentless celebutard who for some odd reason is dressed like Tammy Wynett. Doesn’t she do fashion commentary now? LMAO

  5. OtherChris says:

    Kelly, who is a cute girl, needs to go back to her darker hair. She literally looks older than her mom in those pictures.

  6. original kate says:

    “Yes, she made him relevant again.”

    sadly sharon is right about this. as for kelly’s face she has always had a wide jaw -she really looks like a young ozzy. maybe she has an ED, i don’t know, but her cheeks have always looked that way.

  7. serena says:

    They seems sisters. Disgusting.

  8. SolitaryAngel says:

    Look. It really bothers me that most everyone hates on the Osbournes; I really respect Ozzy, because for all the years he was so fucked up, Sharon stayed with him and gave him the courage to finally stop doing drugs. Now he’s the father/husband/man I always knew he could be. He’s come so far and still makes kick-ass music! And he loves his family to death. He has earned some f*cking respect.

    No, Sharon is NOT a quiet little wifey; she ran their family and Ozzy’s career by herself for many many years—you can’t do that without being a strong person with a strong personality.

    THAT being said, however, Kelly is still immature and growing; but sometimes she and Sharon just need to drink a nice hot cup of STFU.

  9. Tabby says:

    Dislike them. They’re like a couple of Stygian witches.

  10. mln76 says:

    I like Sharon despite her arrogance because she’s a smart woman but I can’t stand Kelly she is an idiot who can’t even be bothered to pay her taxes and doesn’t have any talent,looks, intelligence yet she makes her living criticizing everyone else. I have so much for the other Osbourne sister who refused to be associated with that reality show.

  11. Hollowdoll says:

    I think Sharon’s a tough cookie. I respect her for having to make hard decisions to keep her family together. It isn’t easy. But it sure is easy to judge. The Osbournes are a lot classier that Sheen. The family is screwed up but at least they are some what in touch with reality and not a danger to those around them. Just my opinion of course. 😉 As for Kelly people are “famous” for a lot less. And least she’s not out doing sex tapes and stealing.

  12. Betsy says:

    I actually find them funny for some reason, but look at the first photo. Scary!

    Do NOT mess with those two because girlfriends will cut a b itch!

  13. jdao says:

    I agree with OtherChris – Kelly looks older than her mom here.

  14. Ur Favorite Bartender says:

    Kelly’s thumb is like, really long. It made me do a double-take then it made me chuckle. Then I ate a mini Reese’s and drank some diet peach tea. So far its a good morning 🙂

  15. The Bobster says:

    I still see Quagmire in Kelly. Giggedy giggedy goo.

  16. margaritachum says:

    @ SolitaryAngel
    i agree 100% with you.

    i love ozzy’s music to death and sharon is a tough one but someone has to be.=)
    she’s a bitch sometimes but so am i. 😉
    ozzy is a nice guy that made mistakes and wasn’t kind to her somtimes but she stood by him and help him and if that’s not love i don’t know what it is.

    but i hate kelly’s hair. what is she trying to look? a 50 year old woman? even 50 years old don’t use their hair like that anymore.

  17. seri says:

    People should stop saying fat faces are Buliemia faces. Us fat-cheeked peeps can’t help it, and it sucks ass when that’s all anyone says, pointing out your slender body and blubbery face 🙁

  18. Alice says:

    I disagree about Miley being talented but I agree with the rest. Besides, did he ever stop the fame machine? No. He let it roll until she turned into a monster.

  19. Amanda G says:

    The Osbournes have always been hypocrites. They are always judging and pointing fingers, but don’t seem to realize that they are doing the same thing as the rest of Hollywood. I mean, their family reality show made Ozzy relevant again years ago, so how is that any different than Miley/Mullet?

  20. harfang says:

    Kelly and Miley are genuinely fairy close friends, and I honestly think the Osbournes are right about this. You could accuse them of piggybacking the Cyruses for attention, but they themselves have been a parent-daughter team, in management terms as well as work, for a long time. It’s legitimate for them to have an opinion on this.

    But what the flusk is up with Kelly’s face? She’s a very pretty girl with lovely skin. Why is she wearing Tussaud’s makeup? Ew.

  21. DetRiotgirl says:

    You know what I think is inappropriate? Kelly’s hair in that top pic! Big, blonde hair is not her friend!

  22. Maritza says:

    I like these two but I wish Kelly would darken her hair, she is looking older than her mom.

  23. normades says:

    Kelly is not a “cute girl”. She is way fug

  24. Rosanna says:

    Sure I forgot how SO’s idea of “good parenting” is enabling your kids to do whatever they want and feel that they should never be criticized for their choices. Freedom comes with responsibilities… you do what you want, and so do others (criticizing you and your choices is included in the package).

  25. irishserra says:

    One trashy family to another.

  26. skilo says:

    I apologetically love the Osbournes.I know this dates me but I grew up listening to Ozzy, and still love him. In their show you could see that they all really love one another. They aren’t perfect, none of us are though. I guess it’s cause I’m from the south but I think she looks good in the big hair in the top picture. But in the second pic you can see how damaging being blonde is for her, it is totally fried looking there.

  27. Truthzbetta says:

    It’s weird how many people have famebacked Ozzy.

    His whacky family is talentless yet they’re all faux celebs now.

    Ozzy is a 4 real icon though. Weird that we now are subjected to the families of some of the famous. Mathematically I refuse this new nonsense.

    The 15 min rule needs to be reinstated.

  28. Cletus says:

    I love Ozzy SO HARD that my love for him spills over and gets on his family. Also, anybody see that ep of The Osbournes where Sharon threw a HAM at her neighbors for pissing her off? Trashy? Yeah. AWESOME? Damn straight.

  29. Hakura says:

    @Curmudgeon“Much as I love Sharon Osbourne, her family is the epitome of poor taste in public.”

    I have to disagree with you, there. No one outdoes the Kardashians in terms of poor taste. (Though the old school version of the Osbournes would be a close second.)
