Kelly Osbourne admits that opening up about her recent relapse wasn’t easy for her. The 36-year-old TV personality appeared on the Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino podcast where he shared what it was like to publicize the topic of a relapse after almost four years of sobriety.
“It’s not the nerves, it’s, you’re embarrassed. I’m so embarrassed,” Osbourne admitted. “It happened. I am acknowledging it and moving on because I am human.”
Earlier this month, Osbourne opened up about his relapse in a candid Instagram Stories video.
“I relapsed. I’m not proud of it. But I’m back on track,” he said at the time.
Osbourne added in his podcast appearance that he could have continued without sharing his struggles, but chose not to.
“The reason I shared it, because I could have moved on and no one would have known, no one would have known … I live a life of rigorous honesty,” he continued. “If I’m not honest, I get sicker. On the show they say, ‘You’re as sick as your secrets.’ And I don’t want to have secrets. ”
Although he did not go into detail about his relapse, Osbourne noted: “I held back before going too far.”
Osbourne plans to delve into his struggles with sobriety, as well as his weight loss journey, on his next podcast. The Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher Show, which opens on May 4.
