We love it when Kelly Osbourne spouts off. Her sharp tongue has taken on a lot of celebrities in the past, and she’s recently set snarky sites on Kate Middleton and Christina Aguilera. On her show, Fashion Police, she called Aguilera “the fat bitch she was born to be.” She went further to diss the soon-to-be Queen of England, Kate Middleton, while making an appearance on the Jay Leno show. Osbourne said it was “faux pas”of Middleton to recycle outfits, saying, “If I am going to be the future bloody Queen of England I’m going to wear that dress once because I’m giving up the rest of my life, all of my privacy. At least I can get a new dress every day!”

The judge made it clear this week that if she does not complete her probation that she’s going back to jail, stating further, “I’m not going to give her five extra minutes.

June 3rd was declared national “Lady Gaga Day.” During the ceremony, she was serenaded by a children’s choir and given a key to the city of Taichung.

We think this is the first instance where a country has ever named a national holiday after a pop star, and it comes as no surprise to us that it was Lady Gaga to gain this honor.

The network has already signed up for 10 episodes, and may have some success with this show given Sheen’s recent media antics that have renewed public interest in him.
