Kelly Osbourne Says She ‘Helped Yolanda’ Hadid Fight Her ‘Debilitating’ Lyme Disease

The former 'Fashion Police' host defended the 'RHOBH' star against her haters.

Yolanda Hadid can count on an unexpected friend when it comes to battling Lyme disease.

While on Watch What Happens Live last night promoting her new book, There Is No F*cking Secret: Letters From a Bad*ss Bitch, Kelly Osbourne revealed that she went out of her way to help the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star in her fight against the illness.

“I actually helped Yolanda,” Kelly told host Andy Cohen. “I put her in contact with a doctor who helped me.”

Yolanda dealt with major drama on Housewives when her cast mates began to voice their concerns that Yolanda’s ongoing battle against the disease wasn’t legitimate and was just for show.

And for Kelly, who has battled the disease herself, that sort of doubt is all too real and frustrating.

“What annoys me is that this is a real, real disease. It almost killed me,” she vented to Andy. “I will do anything to raise awareness for it because I almost died from it. And it is a debilitating disease that most of the time goes misdiagnosed.”
