Does anyone realize that Kelly Osbourne hasÂ rejected the opportunityÂ to join Dancing With The StarsÂ nine times?Â WithÂ the recentÂ news that she has joined the fall 2009 cast,Â Kelly opened up to E! News about her battle with painkillers and her decision to finally appear on the show…
Kelly admitted that at times she was taking up to 50 Vicodin pills a day and had no control over her addiction.Â ”I had no control over it. I didn’t know what day it was. If I can share that pain and misery with someone to say, ‘Don’t do this,’ it means more to me to help one person than to keep my mouth shut,” she said.
Although Kelly rejected the idea of being on Dancing With The StarsÂ for several years, she said that she secretly wanted to do it. “There are a number of reasons mainly because it really scares me. It’s one of those shows that a lot of people who are trying to revamp their career go into and do. And moody me would be like, ‘Oh, that’s sad, I’m not doing that’. But secretly I’m like, ‘They look like they’re having so much fun,’” she added.
Kelly, who is partnered with Louis van Amstel, is happy with her decision. “I’m turning 25 during the show and I just don’t want to have any regrets anymore – I just wanna have fun. How many people in the world get an opportunity like this and get paid for it?”Â
Dancing With The StarsÂ kicks off Monday, September 21 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
