In her new memoir, 'There Is No F***ing Secret: Letters From a Badass B***h', the TV host has revealed that her mother Sharon took the drastic measure to send her to the facility in a desperate bid to get her clean.
The 32-year-old star - whose father Ozzy Osbourne has battled drug and alcohol abuse issues and sex addiction - writes: ''Mum once locked me in a mental institution for three days and it scared the hell out of me ... I had to wear paper shoes, since I could potentially kill myself with a shoelace and wasn't allowed to have anything metal not even a spoon. I was suicidal by medical standards but I heard mum's message loud and clear: stop using drugs before I was gone for good.''

The revelation comes in Osbourne’s upcoming book, ‘There Is No F**king Secret’.
In her upcoming book There Is No F**cking Secret: Letters From A Badass Bitch, Kelly writes that Ozzy ended up being rushed to hospital in the same ambulance as his wife, after downing a handful of pills and washing them down with vodka.

This year's Download Festival turned out to be a very wet weekend with constant downpours and thunderstorms throughout the three days, but what would 'Drownload' festival be without a little bit of rain? Thick with mud and soggy from the rain, the crowds all gathered looking for a fantastic time and with phenomenal headliners Rammstein, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden the weekend was never going to disappoint. Aside from the wrestling and the creative Zippo lighters that you could engrave in the Zippo Encore booth, as well as get hold of the limited edition Download Zippo lighter, the music line up for this year's festival was phenomenal - and we can't wait for the next Download festival already.
There were multiple highlights throughout the weekend, and as we stocked up on burgers, we headed down to the Lemmy stage to catch one of the more out-there acts of the weekend - Babymetal. Babymetal were mesmerising as they always are, with hit songs Gimme Chocolate and Road To Resistance taking the crowd by storm. A giant circle pit opened as the Japanese J-pop/metal band took to the stage and gave a fantastically choreographed performance as always.

We're still no closer to predicting how this is going to end.
It's been a month since Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne appeared to go their separate ways after the latter's alleged affair with an LA hair stylist, but things have gone a little quiet since then. And with Sharon supporting Black Sabbath at Download Festival, does this mean their relationship is on the mend?
Sharon Osbourne supports her husband
Sharon looked positively glowing with pride as she watched her allegedly adulterous husband perform with his band Black Sabbath at Download Festival in Donnington, Leicestershire on Saturday (June 11th 2016), sparking rumours that their 34-year-long marriage may not be as over as everyone thinks.
The couple’s split was announced last week, after 33 years of marriage.
Sharon Osbourne is said to have called in divorce lawyers in order to end her 33 year marriage to Ozzy Osbourne, according to TMZ. The reports come just one day after the estranged couple shared a stage together at an LA press conference to announce the merging of Ozzfest and Knotfest. However their appearance together was not a sign of a reconciliation and Sharon is now said to be moving ahead with the divorce.
Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne are divorcing.
On Tuesday (May 10th) Sharon confirmed her split from Ozzy, when appearing on ‘The Talk’. “I've been avoiding looking at any pictures or reading anything. I know what's going on," Sharon said. "I don't need to read about it and see about it because it's like putting salt in a wound. So I don't need to.”
Is one of showbiz's most explosive marriages coming to an end?
It surfaced over the weekend that Sharon Osbourne had thrown her husband Ozzy Osbourne out of their $10 million Beverly Hills mansion after alleging that he'd been cheating on her with a celebrity hair stylist. So far, it's all been a bit of a mess, but both Ozzy and Sharon have spoken out publicly now.

Sharon Osbourne confirms the return of family reality show 'The Osbournes'.
One of MTV's most popular reality series is finally coming back. Sharon Osbourne has revealed that 'The Osbournes' will make a brief return in the form of a six to eight short episodes, though MTV will not be airing it this time around.
The Osbournes are back!
The family's matriarch Sharon Osbourne confirmed the re-shoot on 'The Talk' earlier this week, but insists that the show will mark more of an update in the family as opposed to an actual major series. 'At most, there will only be six to eight episodes and a catch-up on our lives and where we are now, because it's been so long since we've been seen as a family and our family has grown', she commented on the show. 'We have a granddaughter and a gorgeous daughter-in-law.'
Sharon Osbourne admits she did not hesitate to ask for a divorce during Ozzy's alcohol and drugs lapse.
'The X Factor' judge has always epitomised female strength with her bouncing back tenfold after every ordeal she has been through. But now she unveils exactly what happened when Ozzy started binging on prescription drugs and consuming alcohol after seven years of sobriety, and how she demanded a divorce from the love of her life following 30 years of marriage, all in her new book 'Unbreakable'. According to the Mirror, the book reveals how she found incriminating texts messages on Ozzy's phone regarding his drug hunting and the pain she went through on revealing to her children Jack, Kelly and Aimee that she wished to separate from him just before they were to celebrate their 30 year anniversary.
And she has every reason to make such a rash decision, having previously given the former Black Sabbath star many chances to curb his alcoholism and drug use after several episodes of physical abuse from the troubled rocker; one being when he was arrested for attempted murder after attempting to strangle her in 1989.
Kelly Osbourne and her boyfriend Matthew Mosshart are now engaged after two years of dating
Matthew Mosshart, brother of The Dead Weather/The Kills lead singer Alison Mosshart, has popped the question to his girlfriend Kelly Osbourne, who is the daughter of Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne. Mosshart, a vegan chef-turned model, mustered up the courage to ask Kelly to marry him whilst the pair were on holiday on the island of Anguilla in the Caribbean. The couple met whilst at model Kate Moss and The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince's wedding in 2011, where Matthew's sister Alison was best woman. They tried out a distance relationship at first - Osbourne lives in L.A whilst Mosshart lived in New York, but after a year he made the decision to uproot his NY home and job to be with his love on the other side of the country - the "biggest sacrifice," according to 28-year old Kelly.
Matthew Mosshart & Kelly Osbourne Are Now Engaged.
She told Hello! Magazine via Sky News that her engagement ring was inspired by her father's earring: "I used to hold my finger up to his ear when I was little and say: 'I want a ring like that'. Now I have one." In a rather romantic statement, Mosshart had admitted "I knew she was The One pretty early on," with Kelly claiming to All Voices that her boyfriend's vegan diet and positive attitude to healthy eating helped the TV personality, who has previously struggled with her weight, shedding 63 pounds last year. The pair are clearly as smitten as possible, with Kelly proclaiming "Matthew has broken down every one of my walls. There's nothing I wouldn't do in front of him."

"Sinners be damned": Black Sabbath are back with a delightfully evil single 'God Is Dead?' from new album '13' and a monster stadium tour.
Showing the blackest of their hearts - now presumably kept pulsing with pacemakers - Black Sabbath have released first single from new album 13 : 'God Is Dead?' with an accompanying video that depicts swirling green galaxies, blood bathed streets and eerily fuzzy TV screens.
At first listen, Black Sabbath's brand new single 'God Is Dead?' has all the tell-tale signs of Rick Rubin's slick production; a man whose capable hands are famed for reinvigorating scores of rock bands, such as ZZ Top.
The track settles into clonging, downbeat death-knell guitars and decidedly evil lyrics from Ozzy, with some "novel" rhyming ("out of the gloom I rise up from my tomb into impending doom"), which forms the first 6 minutes of their 9 minute epic, before picking up pace and volume, eventually breaking out climatically into pure metal heaven as Ozzy cries out "God Is Dead!" over Geezer's rolling drumbeat thumps and a classic heavy riffage that will bring tears of joy to fans.

Bassist Geezer Butler has said that he would be up for another album if the rest of the group were
Metal overlords Black Sabbath are back, and not for the first time either, only this time round they've got a brand new album full of original stuff. And this might not be the last time we see the Brummie boys in the studio either, with bassist Geezer Butler admitting in an interview this week that he would be open to another album.
Featuring an almost entirely original line-up (drummer Bill Ward was not present for recording because of health problems) since 1978's Never Say Die, the band will stay true to the title of their last album with Ozzy Osbourne as frontman and release 13 later this month. Although it has been labelled as the 'final' album from the band, by the press and Sabbath themselves, after a string of successful reunion shows over the past year, Geezer spoke with Billboard this week when he revealed that he has been encouraged by the success to enough to think that another album could be a possibility.
"Let's put it this way; it's taken us 35 years to do this one," Butler told Billboard, "So if there's gonna be (another) album there's gonna be an album but I don't want to say if there's going to be a follow-up. I wouldn't mind doing another Sabbath album with them, though."
After weeks apart, the two played husband and wife again at a Beverley Hills gala this weekend.
It looks as though Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are back on good terms with each other, with the reunited married pair sharing a kiss on the red carpet for the 'An Evening With Women' event in Beverley Hills on Saturday (May 18). This is the first time the two have looked like a couple again since Sharon reportedly through Ozzy out after his addiction to booze and prescription drugs began to get the better of him.
This weekend, the Sunday People reported that the pair were ready to make amends in their relationship, with Ozzy flying back to the U.K. to rekindle their marriage. The pair were lived apart in Los Angeles for three weeks prior to this weekend, and were spotted without their wedding rings at various occasions before Sharon flew back to their Buckinghamshire mansion recently. Sharon has returned to Britain to begin filming for the X Factor, with Ozzy following her shortly after in a bid to get back in his wife's good books, a tactic that seems to have worked.
Sharon and Ozzy share a smooch on the red carpet this weekend
Sharon Osbourne defended her husband and her marriage on the latest episode of "The Talk"
Everyone knows by now about Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s marital troubles. After Ozzy’s addiction to prescription drugs came to light recently, rumors started swirling that Sharon was thinking of divorcing her troubled husband. The bottom line however, is that there will be no divorce. Sharon made that clear in a recent interview on The Talk: “Everybody knows he’s been struggling with this [substance abuse] his entire life and I never knew that he was using prescription drugs. I knew he was drinking occasionally, but I didn’t realize to the extent. It’s our business — we’re dealing with it; we’re not getting divorced. "However, am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes I am — I’m devastated right now."
Like many celebrities recently, Sharon also spoke out against the media’s role in distorting the facts for the sake of drama and a good headline: “Everything that was printed in the tabloids has been distorted," Sharon said Tuesday. "There’s always a little seed of truth to everything that gets reported, but then it gets very distorted. The only thing that’s true was the Facebook posting that my husband did on his Facebook where he said he’s been using alcohol and prescription drugs for the last year and a half … and that he has been in a very dark place. That’s true. It’s very true."
She might be devastated, but she’s sticking by her man.
Sharon Osbourne is currently living in a hotel as she awaits the completion of her new house.
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have moved out of their Los Angeles home and are living apart, according to The Sun. The couple, who have been married for 31 years, haven't seen each other for three weeks since they moved out the property but are thought to still be in a relationship.
Sharon and Ozzy are known for their rows and fiery relationship, though it appeared to work for them - or did it on-screen, in their hit MTV show. However, the fights appear to have taken their toll and Sharon is staying in a hotel until her new house in Beverly Hills is renovated, while Ozzy is renting a property two miles away. "They are living at different addresses and are not spending any time together. They row a lot," a source said, "They aren't acting like husband and wife. It is unusual to not even have dinner together when both of them are five minutes apart."
A friend of the couple also told the paper "Sharon and Ozzy have had plenty of opportunities to meet up but haven't spent any time together at all." The couple have been spotted without their wedding rings at numerous events this year, and Sharon recently alluded to the personal problems by tweeting about having a "really tough year."

Black Sabbath have revealed that they are recording their first album together with original members for the first time since 1978's Never Say Die, with the album set to be titled 13.
Three of the original four members - Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler - have been in the studio recording the long awaited album for the past few months, enlisting the help of Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk on drums to stand in for Bill Ward. Unfortunately health problems have plagued Ward and as such, with a heavy heart, the band have had to continue without him. Iommi assessed the situation with Ward in November last year, telling Blaring Out magazine: "We'll always have a heart for Bill, but I think it's gone past that now, because it's gone on so long I don't see that happening at the moment."
In the interview, Iommi also revealed that the album will be 15 tacks long and it has also been revealed that the album was produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, who has worked with such artists as System of a Down, Jay Z, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, Metallica and Johnny Cash. On top of this, the band have also announced a number of tour dates for the near future, in Australia, New Zealand and Japan's Ozzfest, and are expected to extend these dates as well as perform on the festival circuit.

Sharon Osbourne is no stranger to cancer, having battled it 10 years ago when colon cancer reared its ugly head. In a preemptive move, she has undergone a double mastectomy to reduce the risk of a return.
Her decision comes soon after Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer Campaign, in which the former X-Factor judge played a part. "For me, it wasn't a big decision, it was a no-brainer," she told Hello! "I didn't want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me. I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl." For Osbourne, her health is more important that her appearance, and as someone who's experiences cancer before, you can only sympathise with her decision. "I didn't even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way," she told the magazine. "I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time. It's not 'pity me', it's a decision I made that's got rid of this weight that I was carrying around."
The whole experience has put her off plastic surgery, as the 60-year old Brixton born star aims to prolong her life, rather than maintain the vain aesthetics of it. "Sometimes I'll see a photo and I'll think, 'My face looks plastic'; it can look so unnatural from certain angles," Sharon says. "Now I am definitely, definitely done. You can't buy your youth back, no matter how much money you've got I won't be going under the knife again."

Sharon Osbourne took the huge decision to have a double mastectomy following her discovery that she was carrying the gene that caused 50 to 80 per cent of carriers to develop breast cancer.
The American Idol judge and wife of Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne has already suffered from colon cancer that spread to her lymph nodes; a diagnosis that was given in 2002 and was subsequently beaten despite being given only a 33% chance of survival. 'I've had cancer before and I didn't want to live under that cloud [of breast cancer]: I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy', she revealed to Hello! Magazine in a tell-all interview. It's a 13-hour operation that can take several weeks to recover from but Sharon refuses to feel sorry for herself. 'It's not 'pity me': it's a decision I made that's got rid of this weight that I was carrying around', she said. 'For me, it wasn't a big decision, it was a no-brainer.' She insisted that the decision was easy having just welcomed her first granddaughter Pearl into the family: 'I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl. I didn't even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way.'
The once plastic surgery obsessed star who has spent £300,000 on surgical enhancements could possibly thank her recent family traumas for being less concerned with her physical appearance; it has only been a matter of months since her son Jack was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and Sharon has freely and emotionally admitted it has not been easy to cope with.
ZZ Top are to be honored as living legends by the editors of Classic Rock magazine. The bearded rockers, writers of songs such as Gimme All Your Lovin', follow in some illustrious footsteps indeed, with previous winners of the award including the likes of Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop and Rush, and the band will join them when the Classic Rock Roll of Honor ceremony takes place in London later this year.

Despite making some of the most uncompromising music of the last 30 years, Motorhead for some strange reason, cross all boundaries. This is undoubtedly down to the enduring appeal of Lemmy - a man who's stuck to his guns and done things on his own terms to the point where he has just ended up being accepted.
Which gives credence to the fact that If you spend long enough doing something and which such conviction, people will eventually come round to your way of thinking. As a rock 'n' roll icon his influence has touched almost everyone who is anyone and the most surprising thing of all about this documentary is the sheer breadth of people who have fallen under his influence. The usual rock crowd is to be expected. Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Metallica etc but its appearances of others such as Jarvis Cocker, Peter Hook (Joy Division), Mick Jones (The Clash), Marky Ramone (The Ramones) and Billy Bob Thornton that most surprise.

Rocker Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that he can't remember anything from his quad bike accident in 2003 which left him in intensive care in a UK hospital.
The former Black Sabbath frontman is a guest on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross tonight on BBC1 and discusses the accident with Ross, which occurred just days after his last appearance on the show.
"I can't remember what happened, my heart stopped twice, the first thing I remember was seven days later but I was only going at three miles an hour. I always used to say I'm going to die by the time I'm 40, I always thought something like that would happen to me," Ozzy said.
Ozzy, 58, also spoke of his two children, Jack and Kelly Osbourne, who were thrust into the spotlight during their teenage years on the TV reality show which was filmed at the Osbourne's home.
"Overnight they were celebrities and didn't know how to handle it. [Now] Jack's great, he goes round and lectures in schools, tells them his story, young people can relate to him," the rocker said.
"At the beginning [the TV show] was great fun but then it got really tiring. You'd get a creepy feeling there was a camera around you all the time even when there wasn't."
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's home in Buckinghamshire was burgled in 2004 and Ozzy tackled an intruder who managed to get away with a valuable quantity of jewellery.
"I sleepwalk a lot, I was naked," the rocker said. "There was this guy bent down. I thought 'am I dreaming?' Like a fool I ran at him and then thought 'now what', so I just let him go."
Also appearing on the chat show tonight are Doctor Who star Freema Agyeman and presenter Justin Lee Collins.
The programme will be shown on BBC1 at 22:35 BST.

Having now seen "Little Nicky," in which Adam Sandler plays the retarded son of Satan, I have formulated a hypothesis I'm calling the Sandler Theory of Exponentially Obnoxious Returns. It goes something like this:
Adam Sandler goes out of his way to make each gimmick character he plays ("Billy Madison," "Happy Gilmore") more grating than the last, just to see how far he can push it before his easily amused fan base will turn on him.
His most detestable character to date had been "The Waterboy," but that Southern-fried dope was mister congeniality compared to Nicky, the little devil that couldn't. Sandler spends this entire movie with his face screwed up in a hit-by-a-shovel grimace and speaking in a silly, raspy voice like a little kid pretending to be sick so he can stay home from school. There's no joke here. It's just Sandler's version of stretching as an actor.
