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).
