Former “Dancing With The Stars” contestant Kelly Osbourne knows whom she is rooting for on season 11. Kelly says that her vote is going to Bristol Palin, for her bravery. “I have a real soft spot for Bristol Palin,” said Kelly. “I really do. I think she’s going out there and trying, and to not have a family member in the audience is the hardest thing in the world.” Let’s hope Mama Palin can make it to some of the performances, because I am sure this beats any kind of elementary school dance recital.
