PureDWTS Season 17 Jack Osbourne Keeps Smiling And Persevering

“It’s been interesting times as of late,” he (Jack Osbourne) told PEOPLE after Monday’s show. “But, you know, you persevere through it and you keep on smiling and do what you can.”

Don’t you just love some of the messages that some of the celebs have to share with the world every season on Dancing With The Stars? I love when people are fighters and refuse to be a victim. Jack Osbourne talks with People.com about how he’s coping with his health conditions, a recent loss, and dancing on Dancing With The Stars.

“We take it easy,” he said, following his 23-point foxtrot that brought his mom Sharon to tears in the audience.

“I’ve just got to listen to my body and pay attention to where I’m at, and not overdo it. I’ve been trying to get a lot more sleep, which has been good.”

Multiple sclerosis affects the central nervous system. “It could theoretically start playing around with my nerves,” says Osbourne – which could affect everything from his eyesight to his toes.

For now, he’s following his doctor’s orders, which sound perfectly reasonable.

“It’s funny,” he says. “When you get diagnosed, they tell you, ‘Get a good diet. Exercise daily. Sleep a lot. Minimize stress.’ It’s kind of like, shouldn’t everyone do that anyway?

Yep, they sure should!! More at People.com.
