"The Talk" Host Leaves Show On Third Day To Care For Husband

Fans of the Osbournes may be unsurprised that Sharon tested positive as she had to leave her new show in its first week to nurse her partner, who first contracted the disease.

On Wednesday, May 4, The Blast disclosed that the matriarch of the Osbourne household had to take a break from "The Talk," which airs weeknights on TalkTV.

Sharon reportedly told the channel she would be flying back to Los Angeles urgently as Ozzy was diagnosed in the middle of the night. She said:

"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."

73-year-old Ozzy has struggled with other health issues. He reportedly battled a severe infection and pneumonia. He also received a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in 2019.

Sharon's love for her husband of almost four decades was greater than her commitment to her show. Nevertheless, she noted she would miss being away, saying:

"I can’t believe my luck. I’m missing the show, and I’ve only been there three days. I can’t believe it. Three days and I’m missing the show, but I will be back. I know I will."

The "Sharon Osbourne Show" alum explained that she would be taking a week off to get her partner back on his feet and believed she would get a negative test result by then.

Sharon opened up about Ozzy's Parkinson’s diagnosis in February 2019 while appearing on "Good Morning America". She explained:

"It’s PRKN 2. There are so many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body."

The former "X Factor" judge said that her husband experiences days that can range from good to really bad while battling his condition. 

Ozzy, who also appeared on the show, explained how he feels to be a Parkinson's disease warrior. He said:

Ozzy assured his supporters that he was “far from” dying and could not wait to create some new music for them to enjoy.
