We miss the mid ‘00s. Before the Kardashians took over our lives, there were so many good reality shows featuring famous families!
From The Osbournes to Hogan Knows Best, our thirst for entertaining celebrity TV created the first generation of reality stars — and made kids like Kelly Osbourne and Brooke Hogan household names (at least for a few years!)
Kelly previously spoke out about her time on the family’s MTV series, which ran for four seasons from 2002 to 2005. The 32-year-old, whose dad Ozzy is fondly known as the Godfather of Heavy Metal, told the Daily Mail in 2014, “I’ve been famous since the day I was born within the rock’n’roll world and I’ve been famous since my teens because of The Osbournes.”
She added, “I woke up one day and was one of the most well-known 16-year-olds in the world and it scared me — it literally happened overnight. I am so grateful that there wasn’t social media then. You’ve got to let people grow up, let them fall and pick themselves up again. I was a billion times worse than the kids that get a bad rap now. It really breaks my heart watching what some of the young people in Hollywood have to go through.”
