This just in: Kelly Osbourne is human. And hurting.
Just as her professional stock soared earlier this year, her personal life took a bit of a tumble, as her engagement to 20-year-old model Luke Worrall imploded amid allegations of his cheating. And she's still not over it.
"It's been the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with in a long time, and I'm not over it," the 25-year-old told Ellen DeGeneres of her breakup with her fidelity-averse ex.
"And for a while I thought…a small part of me wanted to still be with him, but it's not right. The best your relationship is ever going to be is how it is when you're dating. We weren't happy anymore. I had to go to the next step in my life and so did he, and unfortunately…"
…he got kicked to the curb. Though we'd argue that's not such an unfortunate occurrence for the Fashion Police cohost.
But while the future may be better, the present is, well, pretty sucky. And though it's not her first broken heart, Kelly said that it has proven to be her most devastating.
"This one sucked way more…because I was going to marry him. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him and part of me still really does, but there is a huge part of me that doesn't. Because I need a man that's going to stand next to me and say, 'I don't care what anyone else says, that's my girlfriend, shut up.'
"And not many people will do that."
Count her rumored new Gossip Guy beau among them…but only due to the smallest of technicalities…
But just like her dream and so far theoretical boyfriend, Kelly has never been one to shy away from speaking her mind, particularly when it's controversial, but even when it's just plain unexpected. Like the celeb she's thrown her support behind on Dancing With the Stars.
Surprisingly, it's not Margaret Cho, who partners this year with Osbourne's former dance mentor, Louis van Amstel, but another "star" altogether. Yep, file this under "Things We Never Thought We'd Hear From the Mouth of Kelly Osbourne":
"I have a real soft spot for Bristol Palin. I really do. I think she's going out there and trying and to not have a family member in the audience is the hardest thing in the world. Half of that show is family support and to go out there that first week and not have anyone there and having everybody looking at you the most, I give her so much credit."
Come to think of it, maybe they do have more in common than meets the eye: one's the former first daughter of reality TV, the other's the former first daughter of Alaska. Forget a DWTS support squad, we smell a sitcom.
