Ozzy’s Daughter Aimée On Why She Didn’t Appear On The Osbournes

Why eldest daughter Aimée Osbourne elected not to feature in iconic MTV reality series The Osbournes.

With Ozzy, Sharon and Jack Osbourne reuniting for a new paranormal TV show, it’s got us reminiscing over the family’s legendary MTV reality series, The Osbournes, which ran from 2002 – 2005.

Featuring the aforementioned trio plus Kelly Osbourne, it was the most-viewed programme ever on the channel, running for four seasons. But it didn’t include the Osbourne parents’ eldest daughter Aimée, who moved out of the family home at the age of 16 to avoid being caught on camera.

Now, she has revealed that this was a choice that she made to protect her own privacy – especially given that her dad was already a certified heavy metal legend with Black Sabbath, and there was therefore public attention on them all.

“For me, I had grown up around having a pretty well-known dad anyway… I always really valued my privacy within that family,” Aimée tells New York’s Q1043.

“For me personally, and 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.”

She continues that it “definitely worked out great” for the rest of her family, but, “I just knew it was never something that I would have been able to consider realistically.”

Meanwhile, a brand-new Ozzy documentary, Biography: The Nine Lives Of Ozzy Osbourne, is premiering on Labor Day, September 7, at 9pm ET/PT via A&E.

Previously, Jack – who is a producer on the film – has spoken of Nine Lives as a whole, and credited director Greg Johnston for his work on how it came out: “We have such a long history of working with him, and he has such an understanding of us, personally, as a family, and my father’s career that it was very much a no-brainer to have him take the helm. I think he knocked it out of the park.”
