The drama between Sharon Osbourne and Kim Kardashian over the meaning of feminism has now dragged into a second week. Osbourne says she was misquoted in an interview with The Telegraph in which she paper reported her having said that Kim Kardashian acts like a “ho” and calls it “feminism.” Noting that Kardashian had appeared to respond to Obsourne’s alleged comments with a quote and by posting a nude photo to Instagram, Osbourne told The Talk that the situation had gotten “ridiculous” and that her actual quote hadn’t been “rude.”

“[The interviewer] asked my opinion and I gave it,” said Osbourne. “Whatever she does she’s showing her body, which shows she’s a strong, grounded woman and she’s not ashamed of her body. And that’s great, but people have been doing that since day one and people have been stripping and whatever since day one. It doesn’t make you a feminist.”

Responding to Osbourne’s latest discussion of the controversy, Kardashian told E! News that she had never claimed to “post nude photos in the name of feminism.” In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia last week, Kardashian had noted that while she had once claimed to not want to be labeled as a feminist, that she nonetheless “[feels] in my soul that I’m a feminist.”
