Amy Winehouse & Me: Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace V Dignified Kelly Osbourne Smack Down
IN today’s edition of Amy Winehouse & Me, Big Brother product Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace goes head to head with Kelly Osbourne in an I Knew Her Best Celebrity Smack Down. Horgan-Wallace on ITV’s This Morning to confide:
“The papers are saying the last time I was with her we were drinking. In fact the last time I was with her was in her house, in her kitchen, we were drinking tea and having a girlie gossip as I would with any friend. Just talking about guys…
“It’s devastating. I’m heartbroken anyway, losing Amy. I just want her back. But to have this thrown at me, and all the internet hate that I’m getting now.”
Sheesh! Where’s the perspective, people?
Cue Wino pal and official funeral attendee Kelly Osbourne:
“Any ‘friend’ of amy’s talking 2 the press/tv are not her actual friend’s. her real friends have more dignity then to get $ 2 talk about her!”
Russell Brand talked about Winehouse at length to TMZ. Is he not a pal? Daily Star hack Joe Mott talked about his mate Wino. Is Lady Gaga not a pal? A pox on those celebs who grandstand, using Winehouse’s fame to promote their own agendas – feasting off her remains.
And Kelly Osbourne has spoken about her friend Winehouse – with great dignity – on Twitter:
“i cant even breath right now im crying so hard i just lost 1 of my best friends. i love you forever Amy & will never forget the real you!”
“I just lost one of my best friends. I love you forever Amy and will never forget the real you!”
“Are you f***ing kidding me? You have no idea what you are talking about! It would be in your best interest to shut the f*** up!”
“I miss my friend. I’m going to be off Twitter for a while. Thank you for all your support!”
‘Today was the saddest day of my life!’
“I’ve dealt with addiction in my own family. It’s hard to speak to the person about it. What I will say is, it’s not glamorous it’s not exciting. There are a lot of people suffering from addiction and the first step is to admit it.”
Addiction is not glamorous – and if it takes a lot of very rich, very feted, very famous people with big media careers based on an exciting back catalogue and family connections to tell us how unglam addiction is, then they do us a service.
And on she goes, with dignity:
“She got herself completely well and she did the impossible, which was to get clean. I’m just so proud of her for getting past it and overcoming it. She did the impossible as I say and she really did.”
