Sharon Osbourne returned to The Talk for the first time since her high-profile split from husband/temporarily hard to locate metal icon Ozzy. As is standard with all relationship developments and drama from late April onwards, lemonade was served.
This morning’s edition of the syndicated gabfest had Sharon back on the program after taking Monday off as the media and public attempted to sort out what caused Ozzy to be booted after 33 years of marriage. After all, if the Osbournes could survive Osbournes: Reloaded, what else could possibly cause their union to full-on crumble? As you may have guessed from the beverage, Ozzy’s alleged infidelity might be the key Jenga block.
“I honestly cannot thank people enough for their backing me. For saying they love me. For everybody here at my home, supporting me, sending me messages of love,” offered Sharon in front of a supportive audience that chanted her name to start the show. The English multi-hyphenate confirmed the news that she and Ozzy have broken up (“It’s true.”), although the Black Sabbath frontman is still welcome in the home. Why? Because Sharon’s moved out and Ozzy’s moved back in.
The Osbourne matriarch is no stranger to speaking her mind and on today’s episode she was remarkably candid about how she’s been feeling following this potential end to her relationship.
“I honestly at this point today, have no idea what I’m going to be doing for the rest of my life. I don’t know where I’m going, who I’m going with, and I just need time to think, and really think about myself — about what do I really want for the rest of my life because this is, like, getting to the last chapter of this book. I really want to think about it carefully, about where I want to go… Because I’m 63 years of age and I can’t keep living like this.”
In addition to co-hosts and studio audience members rooting for Sharon at this complicated juncture in her life, daughter Kelly posted a pic on Instagram that was also a show of support. Or awful timing if she’s the new surprise spokeswoman for the California Lemon Council.
