Kelly Osbourne will be joining Dr. Phil‘s talk show as a special contributor, starting Wednesday, March 24, and making additional appearances through the remainder of the season.
“Kelly is an excellent addition to our show because she’s experienced a lot of what many of our younger viewers may be going through,” Dr. Phil told Entertainment Tonight. “She has dealt with drug addiction as well as addictions within her family.
“She’s also fought the battle with obesity, and the public scrutiny that often accompanies it. She is well-armed and up to the task of being our special contributor.”
Kelly has been working hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle and promote a positive body image for young women. She rejects the Hollywood ideal of being stick thin, and is an activist for women leading healthy lives.
“I am excited to be a part of Dr. Phil as a contributor for the show,” Kelly said. “It offers a great opportunity for me to bring a youthful perspective and opinion on the issues that affect our selves, our families and society as a whole, and I’m very honored to be a part of it.”
“I really hope I can use my life experiences to do some good,” she added.
For Kelly’s first assignment, she will be taking part in a panel alongside Dr.Harold C. Urschel III, founder of the Urschel Recovery Science Institute, The Insider correspondent Chris Jacobs, and California Attorney General Jerry Brown in a discussion about prescription drug use in Hollywood, and its effects on today’s teens, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Keep up the positive activism Kelly!
