Celebrity Spot-Lite: Kelly Osbourne vs. Christina Aguilera
Who doesn’t love a good cat fight? Well, actually, I can think of a lot of people who don’t (my dad, my postman, my gynecologist…too far?), but too bad! This one is too juicy to pass up.
Apparently there has been a scandalous feud between Kelly Osbourne and Christina Aguilera for years now about HangryHippo’s “favorite” topic…weight! According to Celebitchy (fabulous site) via UsWeekly:
After Joan Rivers, 78, said Aguilera looked “stuffed into” a Givenchy LBD at an event in Munich, Germany last month (and likened her to “Snooki‘s Scandinavian cousin”), Osbourne chimed in: “Maybe she is just becoming the fat bitch she was born to be. I don’t know. She was a c**t to me. And she bought my house!”
Osbourne’s digs at 30-year-old Aguilera’s fluctuating weight didn’t end there. “She called me fat for so many f***ing years,” Osbourne continued, “so you know what? F**k you! You’re fat too.”
Ironically, Osbourne opened up to Us Weekly in Feb. 2010 about her own weight struggles. “I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict. I will never understand that,” the reality star, who checked into rehab for drug and alcohol addiction three times, said. The 5-foot-2 Osbourne, who once weighed “almost 160″ pounds, recalled once walking down the street when “some horrible obnoxious teenager screamed out a car window to me, ‘You’re fat!’ I went to my parents [Sharon and Ozzy] bawling, ‘I would rather be called ugly than be called fat!’”
After years of yo-yo dieting, Osbourne shed more than 48 pounds thanks to her 2009 stint on Dancing With the Stars — and she’s kept it off since!
“I just commit to half an hour a day. It doesn’t seem overwhelming and I can handle that,” she told Us in Oct. 2010. “I do half an hour on the treadmill and when I feel like doing more, I’ll do a few sit-ups and some weights.”
Like I said: ESCANDALO! So, let’s take a look at Kelly and Christina, shall we?
So, basically, both of these celebrities have struggled/are struggling with their weight and yet have decided to turn it into a vicious feud between the two instead of a) being open and honest about their struggles, b) leaving the other the hell alone, or c) banding together to form a singing duo of BBW sistas? Yes? Yes.
It is common knowledge that Kelly Osbourne has had many ups and downs with her weight (anyone with a whole layout in UsWeekly following her weight loss/gain trajectory is definitely on our radar…and how terribly revealing about our societal obsession with weight, by the way), and recently XXXtina (my private nickname for Ms. Aguilera, pronounced “Triple X Tina”) has definitely been in the limelight for the same issues, but really do you have to go and call someone a “fat bitch” in a public forum? And then you have the nerve to say how traumatized you have been when people have called you yourself “fat” in the past? I smell a HANGRY HIPPOCRITE if ever there was one…
