Today in “…” news of the day, Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she once slit her wrists in order to prove her love for husband Ozzy Osbourne. I guess ratings were low, because she actually decided to tell this story on The Talk as part of the show’s Secret Week theme. Girl, some secrets are better never being told (via US Weekly):
“I’ve never discussed it out of embarrassment of how stupid I was at the time to do such a thing to myself,” Sharon said. “I was 27, I was just going out with Ozzy at the time…and when we first got together, we would drink a lot together,” she started out. “We had a session of partying…and it’s about 4 in the morning and he says to me, ‘How much do you really love me?’…And I’m saying, ‘I’d do anything for you, anything, I absolutely adore you…I’d give my life for you.’”
The redheaded 61-year-old then went on to admit she physically hurt herself in a dramatic attempt to prove her love.
“I’m like, ‘I’ll show you how much I love you, I’d die for you’…so I went to a room service table…and there was a steak knife,” she said. “I get the knife and I’m like, ‘I love you so much’ and slash, slash, slash on my wrist.’”
Cocaine’s a hell of a drug, I guess? I know people do stupid shit when they’re drunk, but that sounds to me a lot like narcotic-fuelled mania. I’m glad she realizes now how stupid she was, but why even share that story?
In any case, clearly even slitting your wrist with a steak knife doesn’t mean your love is eternal – these two have had their fair share of problems (though they are still hanging on by a thread, for whatever that’s worth).

Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have had their share of marriage troubles, but seeking out the help of a counselor did nothing to help their relationship, apparently, as Ozzy just got pissed off and became uncooperative. Wow, that’s super hard to believe! Can’t see that at all!
Here’s how Sharon explained it to Hello:
“It was something we’d never tried before. But actually, it just made Ozzy angry.
“We gave it a go, but it wasn’t for us. What we’ve done we’ve done together and with the help of our family.”
Well… isn’t that kinda part of the problem? If counseling makes him angry, maybe he needs to work through why the hell that’s the case rather than you just abandoning the whole thing because of it. Sure, therapy doesn’t work for everyone, but if you’ve got legitimate issues and want to be committed to making a relationship work, you probably need to do something about it.
But what do I know? These two have been married for almost 32 years, so they must be doing something right (or they just never see each other and Sharon leaves Ozzy to start his bacon fires in peace). Anyway, he’ll apparently be 10 months sober come Christmas, so that’s worth celebrating!

Listen, I feel Ozzy Osbourne on this one – sometimes you just need some bacon. Shit is delicious – the uncured, thick-cut stuff, that is. Oh, and the back bacon that you can only seem to get in the UK. Ugh, now I want bacon. In any case, it’s likely a reverie just like mine that led Ozzy to his Los Angeles kitchen to fry up some of the good shit (not THAT good shit – he’s clean now!). Unfortunately, he, uh… set the place on fire.
Los Angeles firefighters were called out to Ozzy Osbourne’s home again on Tuesday night after the rocker sparked a blaze while making himself a late-night snack.
The Black Sabbath frontman was injured during a fire that broke out at the California home he shares with wife Sharon Osbourne back in January and there was another drama there overnight.
There were no other details about the latest fire drama or the damage caused at press time.
January’s early morning blaze, which was caused by a candle, left Ozzy with singed hair, no eyebrows and minor burns to his face.
Damn, two fires in a year. Someone needs to supervise this guy, seriously! Also, minor suggestion – has he ever thought of getting a George Foreman grill? No bacon grease spray all over the place AND you can drain off some of the fat – almost 42% of it, from what the box says (I just bought a new one, okay?).
In all seriousness, glad he’s okay. Here’s how Sharon broke the news on Twitter:
Sharon Osbourne kicked husband Ozzy out of their house because he apparently started using drugs and alcohol again. In April she said,
We’re not getting divorced. However, am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes, I am — I’m devastated right now. He’s been using alcohol and prescription drugs for the last year-and-a-half…and he has been in a very dark place.
Good news for them and all you fans of celebrity couples who don’t get divorced — they’re moving back in together. All aboard the crazy train once more. From TMZ:
Sharon insisted she wouldn’t take Ozzy back until he cleaned himself up — and to prove she meant business, she moved out of the family home and into the Beverly Hills Hotel.
But now, it seems Sharon’s convinced Ozzy’s winning the war with his demons … because the two not only walked the red carpet together at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday (and shared a kiss) … they also went home together after the show.
We’re told Sharon is determined to help Ozzy stay off the junk — she’s even hired a “sober team” to monitor the rock star 24/7 and help him steer clear of potential hazards.
In this story TMZ says she moved out but we’ve also read that he was the one who moved out. Point is, they’re apparently back together in the same house. Unlike Kris and Bruce Jenner. Here’s hoping Ozzy’s doing well and this works out.
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have had a tough go of things lately and are living apart, which we recently found out is a result of Ozzy’s relapse back into drug and alcohol use. They’re not headed for a divorce or anything, but understandably, things have been pretty hard for them as a couple and for Sharon in particular, who discussed it on The Talk on Tuesday.
“Everybody knows he’s been struggling with this his entire life and I never knew that he was using prescription drugs,” she said. “I knew he was drinking occasionally, but I didn’t realize to what extend. It’s our business — we’re dealing with it. We’re not getting divorced. However, am I happy? No. Am I upset? Yes, I am — I’m devastated right now.”
“He’s been using alcohol and prescription drugs for the last year-and-a-half…and he has been in a very dark place. That’s true. It’s very true.””It’s a disease that not only hurts the person that has the disease but it hurts the family,” she continued. “It hurts people that love you and we’re dealing with it.”
Well, it’s a shame that stars are forced to make any kind of public announcement like this when it’s a very private issue – though I suppose the fact that Ozzy made his announcement about relapsing public kinda forced her hand. I can only hope he really does get back on the wagon and stay there, though we all know addiction is a life-long battle, no matter if you’re clean for 40 days or 40 years.
Sharon Osbourne has been through some shit with Ozzy over the years and their relationship drastically improved when he got clean. All that sort of went down the tubes when he started drinking and using drugs again over the past few years, leading to the couple living apart and sparking rumours that their marriage is over.
The good news, Sharon’s not filing for divorce and hopes to eventually reconcile with Ozzy. The bad news is that it’s not going to happen until he’s clean again for a long while.
Sources connected to the couple tell us … even though Ozzy says he’s been sober for 44 days … it’s not enough for her. She’s been living with this most recent bout of drug and alcohol abuse for a year-and-a-half, and Sharon is saying 44 days doesn’t make that go away.
Ozzy has admitted … his boozing and drug use caused their split but he’s confident Sharon will NOT end their 31-year marriage by filing for divorce.
Our sources say … Sharon’s intention is not to end the marriage, but she believes she has to make it clear to Ozzy once and for all … she can’t handle his substance abuse.
Sources familiar with the situation say there will be NO divorce. As one person put it, “They’ve been through hell and back together. They’re not breaking up.”
Good for her. I could put up with a lot of shit but the thing with drugs is that they change the kind of person you are and make you capable of some serious fuckery. It’s probably really painful for Sharon to be away from him, but everyone’s got to draw the line somewhere. I do hope that Ozzy gets clean and stays that way, and not just for the sake of his marriage, but I’m with Sharon on this one.
Ozzy Osbourne has had a hairy past with drug and alcohol addiction, and while it never completely leaves you, he seemed to be staying clean and doing well. He was, actually – until the past few years, when he had a relapse which may or may not have contributed to his marriage problems with wife Sharon.
Writing on his Facebook page, Ozzy admitted to having gone back to abusing substances but said that he’s been clean for roughly 6 weeks and hopes to continue on that path.
For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. I was in a very dark place and was an asshole to the people I love most, my family. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober.
Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing. I’m just trying to be a better person.
I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends and my band mates for my insane behavior during this period………and my fans.
Damn, Ozzy, that’s rough. Good for him for admitting that he has had a problem and vowing to get back on the wagon. Having slip ups is going to happen in life, but here’s hoping he manages to stay clean and sorts stuff out with SHARONNNNNNNN!
