Dr. Phil welcomes a new addition to his long-running show -- and only ET has the inside scoop.
Kelly Osbourne will be joining "Dr. Phil" as a special contributor, beginning on Wednesday, March 23, and then make additional appearances through the remainder of this season.
"Kelly is an excellent addition to our show because she's experienced a lot of what many of our younger viewers may be going through," said Dr. Phil. "She has dealt with drug addiction as well as addictions within her family. She's also fought the battle with obesity, and the public scrutiny that often accompanies it. She is well-armed and up to the task of being our special contributor."

"I am excited to be a part of 'Dr. Phil' as a contributor for the show," Osbourne says. "It offers a great opportunity for me to bring a youthful perspective and opinion on the issues that affect our selves, our families and society as a whole, and I'm very honored to be a part of it." Osbourne continues, "I really hope I can use my life experiences to do some good."
Osbourne's first assignment is to join a panel alongside Dr. Harold C. Urschel III, founder of the Urschel Recovery Science Institute, "The Insider" correspondent Chris Jacobs, and California Attorney General Jerry Brown in a frank discussion about prescription drug use in Hollywood, and its effects on today's teens.
"We're excited about having Kelly as part of the 'Dr. Phil' team," said executive producer Carla Pennington. "We see her role not limited to that of just a studio guest, but someone who we can send out in the field to gather information and to do interviews, particularly with young people, on a more comfortable and even playing field."
"Dr. Phil" airs weekdays in syndication. Check your local listings for the time and station in your city.
