Okay, so, Kelly Osbourne is pissed at her sister Aimee Osbourne, who’s pissed at MTV about The Osbournes, and MTV is pissed at her because she’s pissed at them. Aimee’s upset because “they edited it to make my dad look like a clown.” She says she “wanted to cry” because her dad “is a laughingstock and known as a stuttering alcoholic. After all his years of hard work and touring, this is how he’s being remembered and appreciated.” According to MSNBC’s Jeannette Walls and Ashley Pearson, “Aimee’s complaints, says a source, have infuriated some execs at MTV.”
