The child of Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly doesn’t even have a shadow of her famous father’s talent. In fact, most regard her as one of the most annoying celebs out there. She hasn’t been able to build a career of substance. Still, her parentage has helped her land some decent presenting roles, and she also had a spin on Dancing with the Stars.
