In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kelly Osbourne, the renowned TV personality, shared insights into her views on relationship dynamics, particularly focusing on the often-overlooked realm of bathroom etiquette.

Kelly, alongside her mother Sharon Osbourne and brother Jack Osbourne, shed light on their family’s unique perspective on maintaining romance and harmony in relationships.

Kelly Osbourne, 39, emphasized the importance of maintaining boundaries, particularly when it comes to bathroom habits. “There are certain rules like bathroom etiquette, you have to have it in your relationship.

One of my No. 1 rules is I don’t want to know when you need to use the bathroom,” she asserted. For Kelly, preserving a sense of mystery and romance is crucial, and discussing bodily functions while in the bathroom is a line she refuses to cross.

“As far as I’m concerned, nobody poops,” she humorously declared, highlighting her commitment to keeping certain aspects of her life private.

According to Kelly, maintaining a sense of individuality within a romantic relationship is essential for its longevity.

“You’ve got to save something for yourself,” she explained, indicating that her bathroom schedule is where she draws the line. This sentiment is echoed by her family members, who emphasize the importance of boundaries and mutual respect in relationships.

Kelly’s romantic journey with Slipknot rocker boyfriend Sid Wilson began in early 2022, culminating in the birth of their son, Sidney, at the end of that year.

Despite the demands of parenthood, Kelly remains steadfast in her belief that maintaining boundaries, including those related to bathroom etiquette, is crucial for a healthy relationship.

The Osbourne family’s unique perspective on relationships extends beyond bathroom boundaries. While they agree that putting family first is paramount, each member also has their own set of relationship principles.

Jack Osbourne, 38, follows the adage “don’t go to bed angry,” emphasizing the importance of resolving conflicts before bedtime. Sharon Osbourne, the family matriarch at 71, believes that loving your partner and considering them your best friend are key ingredients for a successful relationship.

The Osbournes’ discussion of bathroom etiquette isn’t limited to theory; they have firsthand experience with breaking and upholding these rules. During an episode of their family podcast, “The Osbournes Podcast,” in November 2023, they recounted a particularly memorable incident involving Sharon Osbourne and her husband Ozzy Osbourne.

The story goes that Sharon, in a bold move to prevent Ozzy from smoking marijuana on a family vacation, defecated into a Ziploc bag filled with his drugs. Kelly, discovering her father’s stash, brought it to her mother’s attention, only to be met with Sharon’s refusal to partake in the act herself.

In a hilarious yet daring move, Sharon took matters into her own hands (quite literally) and defecated into the bag, sealing it back up and returning it to its hiding place. When Ozzy discovered the prank, he reacted with understandable outrage, nearly knocking a door off its hinge in a fit of anger.

The incident, which occurred in 1995 during a family stay at the Four Seasons hotel in Hawaii, highlights the Osbourne family’s unorthodox approach to handling delicate situations. Despite the chaos that ensued, it serves as a testament to their close-knit bond and willingness to go to extreme lengths for one another.

Reflecting on the incident, Kelly Osbourne recalled her father’s reaction, emphasizing that the marijuana in question was of low quality, jokingly adding, “It was dirt weed. It had seeds in it.” 

The Osbourne family’s candid discussion of bathroom etiquette provides a refreshing take on relationship dynamics. While their approach may be unconventional, it underscores the importance of setting boundaries and maintaining a sense of individuality within romantic partnerships.

Whether it’s through humor or bold actions, the Osbournes demonstrate that navigating the complexities of relationships requires both honesty and a healthy dose of irreverence.
