Kelly Osbourne is telling all. The outspoken youngest daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne will release her first book, to be published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons next spring, according to Us Weekly. And based on the title, you can bet she won’t be holding back on anything.
Kelly’s Osbourne’s tell-all is titled There’s No F*****g Secret and it will detail her life growing up in the famous rock ‘n roll family as well as how she spread her wings in adulthood.
“Growing up in the spotlight has come with its ups and downs and my life has been far from normal, but I am finally at a place where I feel empowered to be who I really am,” Kelly said in a statement about the forthcoming book. “I’m so excited to share an uncensored look at the stories that have shaped the woman I am today, which I hope will encourage and inspire others to find their own confidence and self-acceptance.”
Kelly Osbourne will reportedly write about her experiences with bullying as a teen, her struggles with substance abuse, and two rehabs stays in 2004 and 2009 for painkiller addiction. In addition, she will dish on her reality TV fame with her family on MTV’s The Osbournes, as well as her later career as a lifestyle host and style icon on E!’s Fashion Police.
Entertainment Weekly revealed that Kelly will also discuss everything from self-esteem and beauty to “learning to love and accept yourself for who you really are.” In addition, the book will give readers a unique look at the events that have shaped Osbourne’s life in the form of letters.
While this will be Kelly Osbourne’s first book with Putnam, it’s not her first time writing about her life. Kelly previously released the book Fierce in 2009. The book included stories of her famous dad’s struggles with sobriety and her own stories of life on the road as a rock star’s daughter. The book was part autobiography and part self-help book aimed at teen girls, and on the title page of Fierce, Kelly poignantly dedicated the book to “every young woman who’s ever felt lost.”
Of her addiction to painkillers, particularly Vicodin, Kelly Osbourne wrote that drugs always be a struggle for her.
“They will always be an issue for me until the day I die,” Kelly wrote in Fierce. “It’s all or nothing for me, I’m afraid.”
Kelly Osbourne also detailed the public scrutiny over her weight when she was younger and first thrust into the spotlight on her family’s MTV reality show.
“What I’ve learned through the media is that they look down on someone for being fat far more than for being a junkie,” Osbourne wrote.
Last year, Kelly Osbourne also contributed to the book A Letter To My Mom, Lisa Erspamer’s collection of tributes written by celebrity offspring to their mothers. In her poignant letter to her mom Sharon, Kelly admitted that as a teen she had a fear of growing up to be like her and was “adamant” about creating her own identity.
Of course, a lot has happened Kelly Osbourne since her first book was released seven years ago and she has definitely created her own identity since then. And this time, it sounds like she is really telling all and won’t be keeping any secrets from fans.
“People always ask me what my secret is, “Osbourne said in her book release statement. “I can no honestly say that There’s No F*****g Secret!”
