While her parents and siblings became the first family of reality TV in the early 2000s, Aimee Osbourne happily stayed out of the spotlight. But that decision still affects her relationships with sister Kelly Osbourne and brother Jack Osbourne.
“I wouldn’t say there is an ease between us, but there is an acceptance,” Aimee recently told The Independent of her siblings, who’ve both struggled with drug addiction.

“Do we socialize? No,” the 32-year-old added, explaining that their rock ‘n roll lifestyle made her an outsider.
“When you are already surrounded by that kind of thing, you either surrender fully and accept it as your destiny, or you think to yourself, ‘You know what? I’m not going to try that actually,'” she shared.
“[Drugs] may have been their thing but I didn’t want to do that. I kept it together, mostly. For me, watching people get out of control, and be indulgent and dramatic was very silly.”

Now following in dad Ozzy Osbourne‘s footsteps, Aimee is attempting to break into the music industry, and released a single, “Raining Gold,” earlier this year.
As for the MTV show that made her family a household name, she stands by her decision not to participate.
“Back then, I still felt I was trying to figure out who I was in the chaos of family life, so why on earth would I want that portrayed on television?” she explained. “I wanted to protect myself, my parents, my siblings too. They were very young, very impressionable.”
