Being on “The Osbournes” gave Sharon a bump in Hollywood. She landed her own talk show called “The Sharon Osbourne Show,” but it flopped after one season. In 2006 she tried again with a talk show of the same title, but it did not make it off the block.
Her next adventure as a judge at “The X Factor” was significantly more successful and she paneled for three seasons. In 2010 she landed her most enduring gig as a co-host on CBS’ “The Talk.”
Osbourne Media Plays a Part
The film about the Osbournes will be co-produced by none other than Osbourne Media, the family-run label. In collaboration with Sony and Polygram.
Polygram will be a great partner for the Osbournes, it has co-produced pop music movies about The Velvet Underground, the Beastie Boys, and Ariana Grande.
The Time Sharon Hid Ozzy’s Clothing
Smack in the middle of Ozzy’s aptly titled “Diary of a Madman” tour, the height of his riotous rock and roll lifestyle, this happened.
Sharon, completely fed up with Ozzy’s drunken debauchery every single night, decided to hide all his clothing from him. Problem solved? Nope. He put on one of her dresses and went out on the town in a wild rampage.
Getting Fired From The Talk
When Sharon landed “The Talk” it was the beginning of a career that was truly her own. She stayed on the air for ten years and was loved for her spunky perspectives. The network canned her over backing Pirce Morgan in his controversial case, an accusation that was very difficult for this spitfire soul that has braved Ozzy Osbourne for over thirty years.
Her plea reverberated around the media. Claiming her innocence on “The Talk” that fateful day she squealed that if anyone should be crying, it should be her. But the mistake of taking Piers Morgan’s side would haunt her.
In a tweet the following day, Sharon reached out to defend herself and beg for love and compassion. She apologized deeply for offending anyone. She acknowledged she is not perfect but “still learning” and promised to “continue to learn, listen and do better.”
Clearly stating that she does not accept misogyny, bullying, or discrimination of any kind, it was too little, too late. She was forced to resign a few weeks later.
