Share with others:
Doctors say Kelly Osbourne should suffer no long-term effects from her seizure last week and released the "Fashion Police" star from the hospital Monday with a clean bill of health, People reports.
"Thank you to all the Doctors Nurses Medical Staff & Employees @CedarsSinai Hospital for fixing me enough to go home its so nice to bein bed!" Osbourne, 28, wrote on Twitter after her release.
She fainted on the set of the E! show on Thursday. It was later determined that she had a seizure.
But her rep tells E! News that she was given "a clean bill of health" upon her release.
"Doctors ran numerous tests and determined that this was most likely a onetime episode of which there are no conclusive results," the rep said. "She is looking forward to returning to 'Fashion Police' this week and getting back to business and life as usual."
While in the hospital, Ms. Osbourne joked that the situation was dire. "My life is now like an episode of 'House,' " she posted on Twitter. "The impending fight against death and the look of fear in everyones faces!"
The Duggar clan is shrinking -- by over 50 pounds.
Jim Bob Duggar, 47, and his oldest son Josh, 25, of TLC's "19 Kids & Counting" airing on Tuesday nights at 9, are in a fierce weight-loss challenge with each other, People reports.
"I got back from Asia and looked at myself on camera and realized something had to change," says Josh.
Married to Anna, 24, and looking forward to the addition of the couple's third child this summer, Josh says he was at 238 pounds and not feeling healthy. In October, he started to cut back and make healthier choices -- and began to see the weight drop.
"I have learned not to grab that bag of potato chips or all that stuff full of sugar," says Josh, who last weighed in at 202 pounds.
Meanwhile, his father, Jim Bob, was starting to feel a little pudgy himself, he says, after his wife, Michelle, 46, started to leave him in the dust when they were out together.
"A few years ago, Michelle had put on some weight and her back was hurting, and the doctor said that if she walked every day and lost some weight she would feel better," he says. "She lost 40 pounds, did Weight Watchers and learned how to eat healthy and exercise. Then she started doing the elliptical, and she almost can run off and leave me. I could hardly keep up with her."
The busy father of 19 blames poor eating habits for his hitting 220 pounds, and says, "I wasn't feeling that great."
He and Josh discussed a weight challenge and both began eating healthier and working out. Jim Bob's third son, Joseph, 18, initially set up a workout plan for the pair. To make the contest more interesting, they've agreed that on April 1 whoever has lost the most weight will be waited on by the other. Right now, Jim Bob says he's about 199 pounds.
In addition to cutting out fried food and sugary food and replacing daily sodas with water, he's been building up to at least three miles per day on the elliptical, sometimes going as many as seven miles.
Both Jim Bob and Josh are both working with former NFL Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Steve Conley, who is now a personal trainer.
