Kelly Osbourne defends heavily pregnant friend Kim Kardashian

Share this:

Feisty Kelly Osbourne has rushed to her friend Kim Kardashian's defence after the heavily pregnant reality TV star was criticised for weight gain. One of Kim's fans, who goes by the handle @ForeverKardash, tweeted Kelly asking what she thought about the harsh words Kim was receiving from trolls. "I think its deplorable to call any pregnant women fat!" posted Kelly, in Cosmopolitan's online chat session.

The duo have been close friends for a while now, and the Fashion Police! presenter recently attended Kim's fairytale shower in June. She showed up to the Kardashians' mansion in a blue skirt and white blouse combo, accessorising with an appropriately-coloured baby pink studded Alice band, and adorning her hair with a floral head wreath. Other celebrities have showed their support for Kim and given words of encouragement, including mother-of-two Gwyneth Paltrow. "I think that women should support each other, especially through pregnancy," Gwyneth told ET Online. "It's a difficult time, and I think Kim Kardashian looks absolutely beautiful. And we're supposed to gain weight when pregnant, that's how God intended it."

 Jenna Dewan-Tatum, wife of Channing Tatum, recently gave birth to the couple's first child in May, baby girl Everly, and clearly understands what Kim is going through. "Let's all be kind to every woman out there who is expecting," she said. "It shouldn't be about how much weight someone has gained, their fashion etc. It's a beautiful amazing moment in time and not about vanity! Just try to enjoy the process! It's not a competition."

As someone who has faced a lot of criticism for her physical appearance, Kelly offered more advice on the online session. ''People who say terrible things are usually saying what they think about themselves," she told fans. In a public spat with Christina Aguilera last year, she slammed the singer for her weight gain, calling her "fat" and using expletives. She defended herself saying Christina had called her fat on many previous occasions.
