It seems like the death of friend and Fashion Police co-star, Joan Rivers, has affected Kelly Osbourne more deeply than we might have realised.

The star has openly discussed her grief at the passing of the veteran comedienne and even broke down during a TV interview earlier this month when sharing memories of the star, but recent reports have suggested that Joan’s death may be having a negative effect on Kelly’s sobriety.

Ozzy and Sharon’s daughter has made no secret of her past struggles with alcohol and substance abuse, but, unfortunately, it seems like her past demons may be making an unwelcome reappearance.

The star, who recently turned 30, was seen this month in West Hollywood club, The Nice Guy, downing drinks and becoming increasingly more drunk.

A source, speaking to In Touch Weekly, said: “She was struggling to walk normally. She had been knocking back gin and tonics with her pals for hours. They drank until we closed- one of the guys she was with helped her get to the door.”

Kelly has spent time in rehab and drug treatment facilities in the past and claimed they helped her overcome these issues, so we hope she knows help is on hand if she needs it.



We’re all still reeling from the sudden death of veteran comedienne Joan Rivers, but as they say in Hollywood the show must go on.

Talks have been ongoing since Joan’s death in August regarding her replacement on style show, Fashion Police, and it has been confirmed that Kathy Griffin, Joan's on-screen daughter in 90’s TV show Suddenly Susan, will be the woman to take her place.

Kathy Griffin, a comedienne and TV presenter in her own right, was offered the position last month but was unsure if she was going to take it, saying “I don’t know if the situation is correct at this time for me or right for me at this time.” Seems like the fifty-four-year-old red head has thought it over and decided to go for it. We think she made the right choice!

Aside from a new presenter, the show on E! which made its screen debut in 2010, will be undergoing a format change. Instead of our weekly dose of catty comments and fashion tips, the programme will only air during award shows and other high profile events. Aw sadface!

Kathy will be joining regular hosts Kelly Osborne and Giuliana Rancic on the popular show and we’re sure her outrageous sense of humour will be a perfect fit.




It hasn’t been long since Kelly Osbourne lost her co-star and mentor Joan Rivers, and the loss still cuts her deep.

In a recent interview with Today, Kelly was overcome with emotion as she told the presenters how she always included a jacket in her designs each season for the comedian.

Kelly had to then ask if they could move forward with the interview and away from the subject of Joan, who passed away in September.

Joan co-hosted Fashion Police with Kelly along with Giuliana Rancic and George Kotsiopoulous and it has since been confirmed by E! that the popular show will continue with her. 

However, it looks like Fashion Police isn't the only TV show Kelly will be working on next year!

Her mum, Sharon, has recently confirmed that the reality TV show that made the family famous, The Osbournes, would be returning for an eight-part special. 



Kelly Osbourne has paid a very special tribute to her friend, the late Joan Rivers.

The star, who was extremely close to her Fashion Police! co-star, has revealed a new tattoo dedicated to the comedienne.

Taking to her social media channels to unveil her bee inking, the 29-year-old hailed Joan as her “miracle”, writing:

“‘If you looked at aerodynamics, at science, the bumble bee should not be able to fly. Physically, it was just not anatomically equipped to soar. Yet it did, defying gravity, defying logic. The bee was a creature that defied and beat the odds, a miracle.’ Thank you for being my Miracle”.

The former reality star headed to the famous Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlour in Hollywood for her latest piece of artwork.

Kelly was devastated after learning the news of Joan’s death last month, saying that “losing her was like losing my second mom.”

What a sweet dedication to Joan.



The official cause of comedienne Joan Rivers’ death has today been revealed.

According to the report released by the New York City medical examiner’s office, Joan’s death was caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain, brought on by complications of surgery.

The official statement reads: “The cause of Ms. Rivers’ death is anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with propofol sedation for evaluation of voice changes and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The manner of death is therapeutic complication. The classification of a death as a therapeutic complication means that the death resulted from a predictable complication of medical therapy.”

The Fashion Police! presenter passed away on Sept 4th, having gone to a medical clinic to undergo a routine throat procedure.

It was reported shortly after that the 81-year-old had stopped breathing, and had been rushed to hospital for emergency treatment.

Joan’s daughter, Melissa, later broke the sad news of her mother’s passing in a statement.

Describing Joan’s death as ‘peaceful’, Melissa added: “My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”



Kelly Osbourne is pretty furious this morning.

The star has taken to social media to blast the press for writing “fictitious” stories regarding Joan Rivers, expressing her anger in a spectacular Twitter rant.

Kelly was clearly riled after a report emerged over the weekend which claimed that the 29-year-old was planning to adopt the deceased comedienne’s dogs.

The article reported that Kelly, who was extremely close her Fashion Police co-star Joan, was keen to take in her four dogs in the wake of her death.

While the article seems pretty harmless, clearly the privacy invasion during such a sad and difficult time has rubbed Kelly up the wrong way.

The reality star vented her fury this morning, tweeting: “WTF is wrong w/ people, why can’t you just let her RIP? Instead U [sic] still choose 2 write fictitious stories about her dogs to make $! #Sickening”.

Kelly was devastated after Joan’s passing last month, releasing a statement in which she said that she was “completely heartbroken”, describing Joan as “my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the only grandmother I ever knew.”

Poor Kelly. With Joan’s unexpected death still so raw, it must be extremely difficult to have to face these kinds of stories each day.

There is worry for Kelly Osbourne after she was hospitalised for pneumonia yesterday.

The TV star shared an image of herself looking rather pale in the hospital, writing: “When you have a cough go to the doctor or you will end up like me! #Pnuemonia.”

Oh no, the poor thing – hopefully she will be on the mend soon.

Kelly has been a busy lady in recent weeks following the launch of her very own clothing line called Stories…By Kelly Osbourne which she teased followers about for months.

However, Kelly is also heartbroken after her Fashion Police co-star, Joan Rivers passed away yesterday.

Kelly shared a lovely photo of Joan on her Instagram account and wrote: “@joanrivers you were one of the best gifts life has ever given me!”

The star also took to her Facebook page and wrote a touching tribute to the deceased comedienne: “I’m completely heartbroken by the loss of my beloved Joan. Not only was she my boss, she was and will always be my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the only grandmother I ever knew. She was family and I will never forget her. Laughter will be difficult for a while but when I’m sad, lonely or upset all I will have to do is think of Joan and a smile will cross my face. Laughter is what she gave us and laughter is what she would want us to do in remembrance of her. Melissa and Cooper, my thoughts are with you and I love you both so much. Joan, thank you for taking me in and loving me as a daughter. I will miss you deeply and will always hear your voice in my head saying ‘my darling get out there and be you!’”


There is frightening news emerging that Joan Rivers is currently undergoing serious surgery after a routine medical procedure went awry. 

The comedian was undergoing surgery in Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC when complications occurred. 

Joan reportedly stopped breathing and is currently undergoing medical care. 

Details are still emerging but we will keep you updated as things develop. 

We wish her all the best for a full recovery.

Update – 6.30pm: Joan is now reportedly in a stable condition. Get well soon Joan!



In her new book Diary of a Mad Diva, Joan Rivers has slammed Kristen Stewart for sleeping her way to the top, hinting that she’s done it more than once.

The fashionista is known for her cruel comments when it comes to what people are wearing, but this is particularly below the belt, even for her!

Rivers wrote:

“Many stars only do one thing well. Of course, the best one-trick pony is Kristen Stewart, who got a whole career by being able to juggle directors’ balls.”

Did we read that correctly, or did Ms. Rivers use “directors’” plural, as in, more than one?

Back in 2012 Kristen was spotted cheating on her then boyfriend Robert Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders on the set of her film Snow White & The Huntsman. However, we thought he was the only one.

Is Joan Rivers hinting that this wasn’t the first occasion that Stewart got cosy with a director?


Joan Rivers went too far this time with comments she made on ‘The Today Show’ in the US. Watch the video for the full reveal of what crossed her lips. Shocking!



E! Fashion presenter, Joan Rivers is known for speaking her mind and she didn’t hold back when it came to her thoughts on Gwyneth Paltrow.

The presenter spoke about how Gwyneth, was the most difficult celebrity she ever had to interview.

“The worst criticism was, ugh Gwyneth Paltrow. She came and yelled at us, but she stood up. She can’t sit down ’cause she’s got a stick up her rear end.’”

But Joan wasn’t done and went onto comment on Paltrow’s looks in her usual blunt way.

“The world’s most beautiful woman voted by Helen Keller and Stevie Wonder. Not my favourite.”

But it seems the feeling is mutual, as Gynweth spoke in 2013 on how she never wants to end up looking like Rivers.

“I’ve probably tried everything. I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I’m 50. I’ll try anything. Except I won’t do Botox again, because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!”
