Life with the Osbourne family is a little bit crazy — but that’s how it goes!
The royal family of heavy metal first took us into their homes with the MTV reality show The Osbournes in 2002. While Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne, his wife Sharon Osbourne, and two of their children Kelly Osbourne and Jack Osbourne participated in the series, the couple’s oldest daughter Aimee Osbourne famously refused and has chosen to lay low throughout the years.
Aimee, 33, only appeared in a handful of the episodes, always with her face blurred, making her somewhat of the “forgotten” Osbourne child. While the show became a beloved staple of early 2000’s reality television and somewhat of a spectacle that lasted four seasons, Aimee remained, for the most part, out of the limelight and expressed a fear of being pigeonholed.

“I want[ed] to be a singer, and I felt if I’d stayed with The Osbournes and done the whole thing I would have been typecast right away,” she has revealed in the past.
It’s been 12 years since the finale and since waving goodbye to MTV, each member of the family has gone in a very different direction. While Ozzy, Kelly, and Jack have, in the past, admitted to various addictions, all members of the family are sober as of now.
“It may have been their thing but I didn’t want to do that,” Aimee has said. “I kept it together, mostly. For me, watching people get out of control, and be indulgent and dramatic was very silly.”
As for recent years, Aimee’s relationship with her siblings is still strained, though cordial.
“I wouldn’t say there is an ease between us, but there is an acceptance,” she continued. “Do we socialise? No.”
