Deep in lockdown on both sides of the Atlantic, rock ‘n’ roll enfant terrible Kelly Osbourne Zooms in from LA to join Anna Barnett in London for a raucous, insightful, and poignant episode of The Filling podcast.
It’s boss and former employee reunited (did you know that back in the day Anna was Kelly’s assistant?) where they examine lifestyle transformations, new TV projects (EXCLUSIVE!), Sharon’s lack of cooking skills, and Kelly’s much treasured Chicken Cottage keyring. Serious question: does this mean she gets a loyalty discount?
Also, can it be true that Ozzy – The Prince of Darkness – has acquired a quarantine tan?
01:00 – 03:15) Kelly details what lockdown life looks like for her in her new LA apartment and her coping mechanisms for combatting loneliness. Has she really taught herself to cooking during this difficult time?
14:00 – 19:00) Sensitively discussing her personal struggles with addiction, Kelly praises the power of her rehab treatment and three a half years of sobriety.
23:30 – 25:00) Kelly lists some of her favourite English foods. She also discusses the differences between UK produce and that of the US. Which does she prefer?
25:30 – 26:40) Was Sharon a good cook growing up? Here Kelly details her childhood food memories and growing up between the US and England. And, yes, turkey dinosaurs were involved.
29:30 – 31:15) Fascinatingly Kelly is eager to return to the UK (home as she calls it) for good. Here she explains why and what’s holding her back?
36:00 – 38:10) Kelly details how productive she’s been during lockdown. Exclusively, she teases new TV projects she has in the development pipeline. Does this include a return to reality TV for The Osbournes?
