Aimee Osbourne Explains Why She Didn't Want to Appear On Her Family's Reality Show

Aimee Osbourne is opening up about her decision not to appear on her family’s reality show The Osbournes.

The Osbournes ran on MTV for four seasons from 2002 to 2005. It followed the lives of parents Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne along with their kids Jack and Kelly.

In a new interview on New York’s Q104.3 radio station, the 36-year-old musician said that she “really valued” her privacy.

“To me, I’d grown up around having a pretty well-known dad anyway, and I always really valued my privacy within that family,” Aimee shared. “For me personally, for who I am, as far as morally, and also just to give myself a chance to actually develop into a human being as opposed to just being remembered for being a teenager, it didn’t really line up with what I saw my future as.”

Aimee did admit that The Osbournes “definitely worked great for the rest of my family,” but explained she “just knew it was never something that I would have been able to consider realistically.”

In the past, Aimee says that she thinks appearing on the show would have had a negative impact on her music career.

“I felt if I’d stayed with The Osbournes and done the whole thing, I would have been typecast right away,” Aimee admitted.

Aimee recently released new music for the first time in four years, which was released under her stage name “ARO.”

“I have been in a really great place creatively and personally which helps,” Aimee said of her new music. “I am forever interested and drawn to the unusual and love to combine genres. I definitely surprised myself with some of these new tracks.”

Sharon recently admitted that she regrets letting Aimee move out when she was only 16.
