Here are the gals that had the top Bikini Bods of 2010:

The pop singer-turned-reality TV star recently began the long process of having her body art painstakingly removed by lasers, admitting she was drunk when she had most of the designs inked.

And now Osbourne admits she had most of the needlework done just to create a rift between her and her famous parents Ozzy and Sharon.

Ozzy Osbourne Happy To Ditch TV Shows

7/5/2010 7:30am EDT
Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy Osbourne is glad he's revived his rock career - because he feared he would be remembered for his shambolic appearance on reality TV show The Osbournes.

The former Black Sabbath frontman was catapulted back into the public eye when cameras captured his madcap antics for the series, which first aired in 2002. His heightened profile became the springboard for his 2007 comeback album Black Rain - and the rocker is delighted he has since managed to shrug off his bumbling TV image and return to his music roots.

He tells Metal Hammer magazine, "You know what? That TV celebrity that I beca...

Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy Osbourne has revealed the real reason behind his shambling appearance on reality show The Osbournes - he smoked pot in a secret room hidden from the cameras.

The former Black Sabbath frontman entertained viewers with his confused behavior and rambling monologues when film crews moved into the family home in Los Angeles.

Kelly Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne struggles to understand why she was once subjected to harsher criticism for her appearance than for her illegal drug-taking. The wild-child daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne began experimenting with substances when she was 13 and insists she was a "full-blown addict" by the time she became a TV star in her family's hit reality series The Osbournes.

However, she is baffled as to why she was berated more for her looks and fuller frame than for her substance abuse - and she still can't comprehend the public's fixation with her figure.
