Popular TV host Sharon Osbourne is only a few episodes into her new TV talk show but has had to take a break and put it on the backburner. Her husband, Ozzy, has COVID-19 and has been hospitalized. She left the show to fly home and be with her family.
Osbourne has been the subject of many controversies and has been forced to rebuild her career as a TV host. She also addressed how much her career means to her, even if it is not as important as her family.
Read on to find out what she said.
Sharon Osbourne Is Very Worried About His Health
She announced Ozzy’s COVID positive result on her new show, The Talk, and said, “I spoke to him and he’s OK. I am very worried about Ozzy right now. We’ve gone two years without him catching COVID, and it’s just Ozzy’s luck that he would get it now.”
According to TMZ, Osbourne was very emotional and broke down in tears when she made the announcement but then patched herself up and assured herself and the audience that her husband of over 40 years would pull through and recover.
Osbourne revealed that she and their adult daughter, Kelly Osbourne, have both recovered from COVID. She said, “It’ll take me a week to get my old man back on his feet again, and I will be back in a week. We’re gonna get a negative test by next week.”
Ozzy Osbourne Has Had Several Medical Issues Recently
During an appearance on Good Morning America, Osbourne, who is also Ozzy’s manager, revealed that he has Parkinson’s disease and that the rock star is handling his health challenges pretty well. He has also recently suffered from pneumonia and a staphylococcus infection.
The 73-year-old also recently had surgery after a bad fall, so all this and his age are definitely worsening his COVID diagnosis. It’s no wonder that Osbourne has to put the show on hold and fly home.
During the announcement, she also said that she’d “hold him and kiss him” with “about three masks on when she finally gets back to him in the United States.” She also said, “My family is my life. I can’t believe my luck. I’m missing the show and I’ve only been there three days.”
Her New Job Means So Much To Her
Just a day before she announced her break from the show, she had an interview with a similarly controversial friend and TV host, Piers Morgan, on Fox Nation’s Piers Morgan Uncensored, where she spoke about her career and how much her new job means to her.
The 69-year-old said, “It’s very important to me. It’s something that I love. And I, just, again, you know, didn’t want it to end my career in such an ugly way.” The show is her official return to TV after she was fired from CBS’s The Talk after a messy Meghan Markle/Piers Morgan controversy.
During the interview, Morgan asked Osbourne about Ozzy’s health, and she said that he is currently okay and has a final surgery planned to get him back to good health. She also shared that Ozzy is “dying to come back home.”
CBS Fired Sharon Osbourne After Her Meghan Markle Incident
Osbourne’s exit from CBS came after a situation arose involving her, Morgan, and Markle. It started in early 2021 when Morgan openly criticized Markle on his show Good Morning Britain about her interview with Oprah and accused her and Prince Charles of lying.
Osbourne defended his statements on an episode of The Talk, stated that he wasn’t racist, and said she had also been unjustly accused of being racist. The situation got so ugly that Osbourne had to issue a public apology days later, and the studio later launched an internal investigation into her.
They eventually fired her when former co-hosts alleged that she had made racist comments several times during her work on the show. She has made it clear severally that she is resentful towards the studio for her treatment and forced exit.
