In a tell-all autobiography Dannii Minogue is claiming that she lived in hell working with Sharon Osbourne on UK’s X Factor.
Dannii says, “What could have been a dream job was at times a complete nightmare.”
According to Minogue, Sharon began bullying her first before filming her first live episode in October 2007 when Sharon burst into her dressing room.
“Sharon snapped, ‘All this bullocks in the press is ruining my life. You could be telling them I’m a nice person but instead you’re adding fuel to the fire by saying nothing.’ I told her: ‘Sharon, I’ve never said anything bad about you, and I wouldn’t say anything bad about you…But she didn’t seem interested. ‘I don’t need this!’ she squeaked. ‘I’m a mother, for fuck’s sake, do you think I need all this shit in my life?’ I tried reasoning with her. ‘Sharon, they are just stupid press stories about a non-existent feud. All I’ve ever done is tell people how much I admire you but they don’t want to print it.’ ‘Oh, don’t play the innocent,’ Sharon spat. ‘Cos if you wanna play games, Missy, I’ll play… don’t you worry, I’ll play!’”
Even Minogue’s appearance was chastised by the loud rocker wife of Ozzy Osbourne. “She said I’d had too much Botox and plastic surgery and looked ridiculous, and I was nothing more than a mosquito she wanted to flick away. On one chat show, goaded by an almost salivating Graham Norton, Sharon rolled around on the studio floor, pointing at her backside, and comparing my face to it.”
Dannii returns to X Factor later this month, when Sharon is supposed to make a surprise appearance. This could get ugly. Will the celebrity moms take the high road and set a good example for their children?
