“Kelly’s my girl!” Betsey Johnson told us backstage after her show on Feb. 14. “She was just perfect, wasn’t she?” Betsey, we couldn’t agree more! From the second Kelly Osbourne danced down the runway covered with hay and thew her hat into the crowd, we knew we were in for a real show! The audience, including Melissa Joan Hart and Matthew Settle, cheered while sipping on mini bottles of Martini & Rossi. So, how did the collaboration come about? Betsey tells us all she had to do was ask! “We asked and Kelly said, ‘I would love to walk in your show!’,” Betsey said. “There was no big deal, no pressure, no money.” Wouldn’t you jump at the chance? I know I would! Just yesterday, broke the big news that Kelly was going to strut her stuff on the runway. Betsey tells us Kelly was so excited she even sent her a very special Valentine! “She’s been so excited, she sent me a big live person pink monkey who brought me a banana and danced around and sang a Valentine’s Day song,” Betsey told us. “It did a cart wheel and a back flip!” What a surprise!
