7/1/02 - Accompanying an article about Kelly Osbourne - Daughter of Ozzy Osbourne, and one of the stars of MTV's The Osbournes - in PEOPLE magazine, was a photograph of Kelly in her bedroom where photographs from Valley of the Dolls and specifically of Sharon Tate adorned the walls. There was no mention in the article about Kelly's interest in Sharon but you can certainly see that she is a fan of the sixties and her bedroom is very influenced by Valley of the Dolls. The Osbournes is the highest rated program ever on MTV in it's history. It follows the everyday life of rock star Ozzy Osbourne, his wife Sharon, and two of their children - Kelly and Jack. [Click on the photo to see the enlargement of Sharon on Kelly's wall.]
