Kelly Osbourne: I Caught More Flack for Being Fat Than Being High

The singer and reality stars dishes on why her biggest obstacle to date has been dealing with her weight

At 25, Kelly Osbourne has already weathered her share of troubles. The daughter of rocker Ozzy and TV personality Sharon has done three stints in rehab for drug and alcohol addiction -- but now, she says her hardest obstacle to date has been dealing with her weight.

"I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict," the now-slim starlet told Us Weekly. "I will never understand that."

At 5'2", Osbourne's weight once hit 160 pounds, putting her in the firing line for nasty comments and public scrutiny. She tells the mag that one day, while walking down the street, "some horrible obnoxious teenager screamed out a car window to me, 'You're fat!' I went to my parents bawling, 'I would rather be called ugly than be called fat!'"

Osbourne admits she "hated" herself because of her weight but was never motivated to fix it. "For a very long time, Mrs. Field's salted cookies were my favorite thing in the world....It's hard to get out of a hole you've dug so deeply."

But after years of yo-yo dieting, and a widely-praised stint on ABC's Dancing With the Stars, Osbourne has lost 42 pounds the healthy way -- with exercise and portion-control -- and she's finally feeling good about herself.

"I'm really proud to look in the mirror and not hate every single thing I see," she said. "I no longer think, why don't I look like this girl or that girl?"
