Kelly Osbourne

Osbourne dishes it out

Kelly Osbourne doesn’t mince words when it comes to Christina Aguilera. On a recent episode of E!’s “Fashion Police,” while mocking Aguilera’s outfit, Osbourne unloaded. “Maybe she is just becoming the fat bitch she was born to be,” Osbourne said. The anger apparently comes from personal history: “She called me fat for so many f—ing years. So you know what? F— you! You’re fat, too.”

Paltrow: I’m not prim!

Gwyneth Paltrow is looking to shake up her image. “It’s good to shock people who think of me as the prim Gwyneth Paltrow,” she tells Elle magazine. One way she’s looking to do that, under the guidance of some very famous friends, is by exploring a music career. “Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z — they think that I should just go do it by myself. That I should go in a studio and see what happens,” she says. “And if it’s good, do it. And if it’s not, don’t. So that’s probably what I’ll do.”

Vergara not an early bird

Though she’s already a parent, “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara isn’t as thrilled about doing the whole pregnancy thing again, she tells Redbook magazine. “When I had [my son] Manolo, I was 19, and I had the energy for everything,” he says. “My boyfriend now wants to have kids, and I don’t even want to think about it. I would have to get into that mind-set again, the waking up early.”

Jason Statham moves in

Jason Statham is looking to settle down, and he’s found just the place. The “Transporter” star purchased Ben Stiller’s $11.5 million Hollywood Hills home, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The 10-bedroom Mediterranean-style home with guest house near the Hollywood Bowl was originally listed for $12.5 million.
