The doctor is in...and so is Kelly Osbourne! Yes, reality star (Dancing with the Stars, The Osbournes) and rock royalty 25-year-old Kelly Osbourne will be making her debut as a special correspondent on the The Dr. Phil Show.
Entertainment Tonight reports that Osbourne will serve as a special correspondent on Dr. Phil McGraw's show throughout the season. Her first appearance on the show, which will air this Wednesday, March 24 (check local listings for time), will feature Osbourne "in a frank discussion about prescription drug use in Hollywood, and its effects on today's teens."
McGraw, 59, said of Osbourne joining his team, "Kelly is an excellent addition to our show because she's experienced a lot of what many of our younger viewers may be going through. She has dealt with drug addiction as well as addictions within her family. She's also fought the battle with obesity, and the public scrutiny that often accompanies it. She is well-armed and up to the task of being our special contributor."
The feeling was mutual from Osbourne who said, "I am excited to be a part of Dr. Phil as a contributor for the show. It offers a great opportunity for me to bring a youthful perspective and opinion on the issues that affect our selves, our families and society as a whole, and I'm very honored to be a part of it," adding, "I really hope I can use my life experiences to do some good."
