Musicians Who've Made the Move to Reality Shows

Ozzy Osbourne, Snoop Dogg, MC Hammer

Reloaded: Sharon Osbourne Shoots Down "Ridiculous" Question

Osbournes: Reloaded

Have you missed the Osbournes? If yes, then break out the earmuffs because the family is making its television comeback.

Instead of just witnessing the dysfunction like we did on MTV's The Osbournes, Osbournes: Reloaded (premieres Tuesday, 9:20 pm/ET, Fox), the new show from the first family of rock (or, as Kelly puts it, "the first family of being f---ed up"), takes on a classic family-television format: the variety show.

It's fair to point out that the Osbournes are no Osmonds. But just don't point it out to matriarch Sharon Osbourne. One unlucky journalist recently experienced the proud mother and wife's wrath when she asked during a conference call if ... read more

Kelly Osbourne's Dramatic Life

It's tough to come of age on TV, much less to do it on a reality series that follows you and your foulmouthed family 24/7. But that's just what 19-year-old Kelly Osbourne did on MTV's The Osbournes. Now, the reformed wild child (so reformed in fact that, prior to our interview, she grimaced and asked for water after mistakenly sipping from a mixed alcoholic drink) takes on scripted television. Once again, she's coming of age — this time playing the sweet, sexy and self-assured Deborah on ABC's new teen soap, Life as We Know It (debuting Oct. 7). TV Guide Online: Was it hard to move from reality to scripted drama?Osbourne: Um, no. It actually was not. I was really shocked at how easy and how natural it came to me, and how much fun I had doing it. So I'm really excited. TVGO: After your MTV antics, did you have to win over the cast to respect you as an actress?Osbourne: No. We were instantly friends. TVGO: It seems read more

Premise: Reality TV's first family of dysfunction features rock icon turned domesticated dad Ozzy Osbourne, matriarch Sharon and teenagers Jack and Kelly. Ozzy's half-baked antics and incoherent rhetoric are surprisingly endearing (albeit peppered with profanity and incredibly---bleeping---vulgar). His kooky brood's adventures, a perfect mix of the mundane (house-training pets) and the magnificent (Ozzy and Sharon dine at the White House), struck a chord with TV critics and viewers alike.
