The Tale of Two Kellys

Kelly O’Donnell is a political reporter for NBC News. Kelly Osbourne is the daughter of aging metalhead and Dark Lord, Ozzy Osbourne. The two have very little in common, but due to the similarities in their Twitter handles, it has led to a world of confusion. Follow along. Last week, Osbourne suffered a seizure while working. She was rushed to hospital and sent home after several days. Doctors have given her a clean bill of health and have no conclusive diagnosis for what caused the seizure. Fans of Osbourne took to Twitter to offer words of encouragement and support. That’s where things get dicey. Osbourne’s Twitter handle is @MissKellyO. Kelly O’Donnell’s is @KellyO. See how that could be confusing?

On Wednesday morning, O’Donnell tweeted, “Since I get many tweets intended for @MissKellyO as in Osborne {sic}. I add good wishes for her quick recovery after health scare.”

See the tweets..One website, HornsUpRocks.com tweeted the news about Osbourne’s release from the hospital and used the wrong Kelly.


This led to one tweeter to remark, “Ozzy’s daughter works for NBC? Lol.” Clearly, someone was confused. O’Donnell and Osbourne look nothing alike. Although, it would be interesting to see how NBC would take it if O’Donnell traded her trademark red hair for Osbourne’s preferred shade of purple.
