Kelly Osbourne on weight gain reports: “I’m not – I’m the same size!”


Despite my general dislike of not-so-bright girls who don’t actually DO anything, I find myself liking Kelly Osbourne in a general way. I’m not saying she’s one of my favorites or anything, but I’ve liked some of her interviews and I don’t think she’s as bad as some of you think. And for some reason, people like to talk about her and whatever she’s wearing and how she’s gone legit, career-wise, these days with a new gig modeling for Material Girl and a spot on E! Fashion Police. All of this new legitimacy came shortly after Kelly lost a great deal of weight, and I suspect the legitimacy will only last as long as Kelly keeps off the weight. So… is she gaining some weight back? Kind of. Over the past month, I’ve seen some photos of her and read some reports about Kelly and her (alleged) weight gain. But then as I was looking through the new photos of her yesterday, I didn’t really see it, which makes me think she probably put on a few pounds and took them off very quickly. And now Kelly is denying that anything ever happened:

Everyone wants to weigh in on Kelly Osbourne’s weight. The 26-year-old actress and reality star told Us Weekly that she’s happy with her body, “but for some reason, the media isn’t!”

“[The media keeps] writing that I’m getting fat, and I’m not–I’m the same size,” she told Us on Sunday at the after party for the documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne.

“I work out half an hour a day and just eat what I want and I’m happy, so I don’t really care,” she said.

After shedding forty pounds, Osbourne told Us in February 2010: “I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict. I will never understand that.”

The outspoken star said she’s accepted “that harsh reality where I woke up and one day realized ‘I am my mother!’ But…if I could be anyone, I’d be her!”

One thing both women have in common? Their brutal honesty. “What’s the point in lying?” Kelly mused. “If you’ve got skeletons in your closet, some a**hole’s gonna dig them out, so just be honest.”

[From Us Weekly]

It’s kind of impressive that she can maintain that kind of weight by only working out a half an hour. Do you believe her? Meh. I think it’s more likely that she did gain a little bit and she just took it off quickly. And I’d just like to say, for the record: It doesn’t matter to me what size Kelly is. I’m happy that she lost weight and got healthy, but most women who struggle with their weight will yo-yo throughout the years, and blaring headlines about weight gains or losses are… well, they’re kind of mean, I think. I embrace some chunk on the ladies. Some do not. I think Kelly looks fine/cute at this current size, and I think she would still look cute with ten or twenty extra pounds. Same with Scarlett Johansson, same with Kate Middleton, same with just about everybody. Why are we so obsessed?

    I like her hair in the first photo – the style, anyway. I think it’s cute on her.

  2. Eve says:

    Did she use the “I’m still a size 2″ (a.k.a. female celebrities’s standard response for alleged weight gain) too?

  3. curmudgeon says:

    I have the same Kelly O issue. I want to hate all celebuspawn on principal. But I want to like this one. I don’t always, but the desire is there.

  4. merski says:

    Isn’t it kind of awful – the very idea of having to “officially deny” that you’ve gained a few pounds? Does the size of her ass really define her as a person? Should we even be talking about it? It all just seems a tad unhealthy. A young woman shouldn’t be forced to wake up in the morning with the first thought in her head being “OMG OMG OMG DID I GAIN WEIGHT?? OMG I’LL CALL THE TABLOIDS TO DENY IT AND THEN I’LL THROW UP A LITTLE!”

  5. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I don’t think she has the metabolism to eat whatever she wants and ONLY exercise 30 minutes a day. If she is only exercising minutes a day, my guess is, she’s heavily restricting.

  6. zxc says:

    Did she pay her taxes alredy?

  7. Delta Juliet says:

    I’m tired of all the weight talk. On both sides of the coin. It doesn’t bother me if someone is a little heavier and I don’t really want to talk about it and point fingers. On the other hand, if you lose 50 pounds, I don’t need to see you in a bikini on People magazine bragging about it. Stop drawing attention to it, stop talking about it, and it (the issue) will go away.

  8. YAY says:

    The issue won’t go away because we have the luxury of being able to be total mean dicks. Dicks that love to spout off what size they are and what size you should be. I don’t see this issue going away anytime soon. It will go away when there’s a food shortage and fat people are once again seen as wealthy. :)

  9. Wendy City says:

    It’s a big issue because Kelly made it a big issue. She was believing her own junk. Everyone “hated” her they were just “jealous” or my favorite “intimidating” other actresses because she lost weight. As far as Im concerned she was arrogant about it and now it is biting her in the ass.

  10. kazoo says:

    @wendy city, exactly.

    and she’s lying.

  11. Lady Jane says:

    In a world where Kelly Osbourne can be a model, surely there is hope for all of us. Because she looks like a mutant. She is like Rummer Willis. She looks off, like someone has put a permanent ‘skew/distort/perspective’ effect in photoshop on her head and face, and it follows her around wherever she goes. She can’t exercise off her head, mores the pity. Do I feel bad in saying these things? No I don’t because she is rich because of her senile rock star daddy and her bitch mom and an mtv reality show and I am poor. So she deserves all my vitriol….

  12. Shey says:

    She can lose all the weight she wants. She will always be unattractive. She makes out that weight loss will instantly change her when she has no other redeeming personal qualities. She is so rude she needs a smack in the mouth.

  13. MarenGermany says:

    “I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict. I will never understand that.”

    this quote stands for itself.

  14. LisaMarie says:

    She needs to wear her hair down mote often in like in the first pic. Much more flattering to her jawline.

    And good grief with the weight. Weight is not a static thing and its going to fluctuate even a lttle bit. I’m a short girl too (5’2″) and even just a pound can make the difference between a muffin top or a flat tummy.

  15. Twez says:

    She’s gained ten pounds tops. I think it’s an issue because that’s all she’s known for recently.

  16. Macey says:

    I really like her hair in that top pic.

    Her weight will continue to be broadcast since they made such a big deal out of her losing the initial weight. She’ll probably make headlines just b/c she’s bloated. I think she’s a small girl so even 5-10 lbs is going to show on her.
    Anyone that does the extreme dieting is going to be on a lifelong cycle of yo-yo dieting and ups and downs.

  17. Phoenix says:

    I’m really not a Kelly fan but I do feel a bit bad for her that she has to answer to weight-gain rumours (although I do think she probably had gained a couple of lbs.. no big dead).
    What annoys me about this is the ‘exercise 30mins a day and eat what I want’ statement. Maybe if she had always been a small girl I could let her off with a ‘high metabolism, small-boned, naturally slim’ excuse, but that probably isn’t the case for Kelly. She isn’t being specific though, maybe all she ‘wants’ to eat all day is some grilled chicken and salad.

  18. Stacia says:

    She a likeable person..I dont think its her weight IMO, but her gams…yes gams, esp. in the third pic. She has the most odd looking legs for a woman…the legs of a first string linebacker…but she seems like a lovely girl.

  19. Lemon Drops says:

    She only works out a little cos shes not taking her overactive thyroid medicine or whatever since shes afraid it’ll make her gain weight.

  20. tomas says:

    She’s an unfortunate looking girl with an unfortunate figure to match. Even at her best, it’s not good. I, for one, am sick of hearing about the long list of no talent celebrity off-spring. It’s become one ugly epedemic in this country.

  22. YAY says:

    It would be a very different world if hate caused mouth sores. :)

  23. Bodhi says:

    Yeah, doesn’t she have some thyroid disorder that she refuses to take acre of because it will make her gain weight?

    Way to be healthy, kelly

  24. GeekChic says:

    @Wendy city, you took the words out of my mouth (fingers?). It’s an issue because she made it one. She was on the cover of all those magazines talking about nothing but her weight loss. SHE put it out there and made it define her. I find it ironic that she denied any weight gain (which was a lie) and then went on about how she doesn’t lie, lol.

    I personally don’t care how thin or heavy she is, or if she gains or loses. What annoys me is when celebs cry about how people only talk about their weight/appearance, but yet it’s the celeb who brought it to everyone’s attention in the first place.

  25. kmn says:

    Not to be mean, but she has a rather unfortunate face. Even when she is super skinny, her face stays puffy. No matter how much weight she loses certain parts of her body don’t change, aka her cheeks and her calves stay wide. It seems like she has a body type that is just not meant to be super thin. And that would be absolutely fine and normal if she were not having to deal with unrealistic, unhealthy Hollywood standards.

  26. YAY says:

    So we all agree that if feels good to ridicule people based on what they look like. I’m right, right? :)

  27. Annie says:

    @#11 jane – I agree she’s not exactly model material but she’s hardly hideously ugly or distorted looking either. I see distorted and ugly looking women out and about every day and let me tell you Kelly ain’t that. In a couple of the pics posted here in fact she looks damn cute. Her main flaw is her thick calves but there’s not much she can do about that.

  28. Zoya says:

    Fat or skinny, she will always be ugly and talentless.

  29. Amy says:

    She actually has curves! I am jealous because I have NONE.

    Also I don’t think she made her weight loss an issue… when she went on Dancing With the Stars, she lost a lot of weight and the media started going on about it. And because it was everywhere, she kind of had to address it!

  30. Juu says:

    Her face is fat no matter how thin her body gets. It looks strange, like a baby doll head on a barbie body.

  31. JenJen says:

    I cannot believe she is on Fashion Police strutting her thunder thighs (and calves) around in those leggings. Yet, Jessica Simpson will never live down the Reindeer leggings, it doesn’t make sense to me.

  32. suckafrak says:

    do you guys also scrutinize people who are actually deformed? Or is it just ok call her ugly and fat because she has famous parents and you don’t like her. Im just curious. If anything, the comments on this thread just make me happy I’m not a dick.

    I do LOVE Kaiser, though! Great writing :)

  33. suckafrak says:

    OMG, my ex best friend went by JenJen and she was so mean to other women! She had a severe eating disorder and hated everyone including herself. JenJen, is that you? That would be hilarious!!

  34. Miss Marie says:

    Ladies, please don’t wear leggings in public if you aren’t svelte. It is really sad if you’ve bought into the idea that those look good on any figure! Hardly…

  35. Amanda G says:

    Kelly’s hair looks so much better in the top pic. She needs to find a hairstyle that compliments her awkward face. She will never be beautiful, but it seems as though she’s trying to make herself look ugly with the clothes/hairstyles she wears. I mean, leggings? Leggings and skinny jeans should never be worn by women who are not thin/petite. I’m not trying to be mean, it’s just the truth.

  36. JenJen says:

    @Sucka, nope, not me. I don’t have an eating disorder but do have the legs to pull off leggings but they are out of style. Point being Kelly does not know fashion. Making fun of deformed people? Gimme a break, she asked it for by judging how others dress. I am a happy person and don’t dislike other women. I’ve never seen your name before on here and you come out attacking me, so maybe you have issues yourself and looking to pick a fight, not gonna happen. Have a nice day Sucka!

  37. TeeTee says:

    I think she went and had her lap band tightened..

    JUST keeping it real.

    I actually like Kelly, sometimes.

  38. JPX says:

    She looks thin. I think the problem is that she has a huge pumpkin head and no amount of weight loss can change that. She can thank her dad for that face.

  39. sorrento says:

    She should be happy she gets any kind of press, what talent does she have?

  40. TXCinderella says:

    She has definately gained some weight back. Not much, but on a person her height, a little seems like alot.

  41. Tiffany says:

    If she is hyperthyroid and not taking her meds because of weight gain, she’s playing with her life. It will eventually cause a heart attack. I lived through it, ending up in CCU. I didn’t know that’s why I had lost an enormous amount of weight and I did gain 60 pounds after treatment and had to work danged hard to lose it and keep it off.
    I hate it when people notice your weight-I have heard a lot of it during my last few years and it sucks. Even now when I am thin, it bugs me that it is the first thing people notice and think it is OK to comment on.

  42. Mrs. Odie 2 says:

    She is clearly very short. It’s hard to stay thin when you’re short. And she has a fat girl’s face no matter what her body looks like. Bad luck.

  43. Forelithe says:

    Top picture- the fringed hair cut looks good and softens her jaw. Any one can wear leggings if your top is long and loose enough!
    Also it’s good to see anyone working as a model who isn’t the stereotypical ‘giant stick’ that has engendered generations of anorexics.

  44. Mario says:

    I don’t care how much she weighs she’s an ugly gold digging scum bag like the rest of her family. Get the hell off TV, you have no business criticizing the fashion choices other people make.

  45. Cirque28 says:

    KO doesn’t seem to be known for much besides being a rock star’s offspring, but… is she considered ugly? Huh?

    Really, I’m not trying to say, “c’mon everyone, be nice!” I just honestly don’t see it.

    She appears to have symmetrical features, clear skin, straight, white teeth, thick hair… in most cultures, these are signs of good health and attractiveness.

    Go look at pages and pages of criminal mugshots. Trust me, you will regain your perspective on what is fug and what is perfectly lovely despite OMG-not-having-Blake-Lively’s-legs.

  46. HotLatino says:

    Her legs are huge and her face is horrible-looking, she will never be thin nor pretty.

  47. Hakura says:

    I hate to say it like this, but Kelly really has set herself up for all this scrutiny, focussing SO much on the weight she’s lost (which is totally great), but she had to talk about it over & over, she had to be on lots of magazine covers in bikinis…

    She openly directed the public’s attention completely on her body, her weight status. So when she starts to gain, lose, or experience normal fluctuations like we all have, people take notice. I think she still looks lovely. I think she just has the misfortune of taking after her father in that any little weight she gains shows in her face. (SO hard to fix that, very frustrating.)

    I too find something very likeable about Kelly. (as others have mentioned, I’m also not the sort of person who thinks kindly of ‘reality stars/celebuspawn’, but for some reason, I just can’t apply the usual judgment on her. Weird that I’m not the only one.

  48. Dominique says:

    there are some mean comments on here!!! I do like her in a weird way for kind of turning herself around. Some people just have larger calves and she seems to fall in that category.

    I don’t have thin legs and I wear spandex to the gym. I’d rather have my toned legs with visible muscle than than thinner weaker looking legs, although I understand most don’t share my appeal. I’d take, say, Beyonce’s over Whitney Port’s legs for example, but I guess it depends for everyone

  49. MaudeLebowski says:

    Damn well said, Tiffany.

  50. Weight Gain says:

    Besides putting you at risk for some very real health poblems, excessive weight gain can create other kinds of dilemmas­ones that only are magnified when the bigger body is paralyzed or weak.

  51. kat says:

    i think she looks cute, and honestly, i don’t see any weight gain. i haven’t heard of her in any tabloid, let alone about her gaining weight.

    also, i agree that people are horrendous when it comes to a female gaining weight. what does it matter? the woman isn’t hurting you or your loved ones. let the woman do what she wants!
