Sharon Osbourne revealed during a guest appearance on BBC’s ‘Graham Norton Show’ that her biggest regret was the time she spent away from her children while traveling the world with Ozzy in order to manage his band, Black Sabbath.
She acknowledged, “We both worked to continue a lifestyle we had become accustomed to and we had to travel so my kids spent quite a time away from us and you can never get that back.”
Osbourne admits, “It was the biggest mistake I ever did, but would I have wanted to live a lesser life? You make the most of what you have.”
Kelly and Jack both publicly struggled with addiction issues but their mother hasn’t let that color her high opinion regarding her children. She stated emphatically, “I don’t know how, but Jack and Kelly came out just great.”
Jack is married to Lisa Stelly and they have a daughter, Pearl. Outspoken Kelly O is engaged to Matthew Mosshart.
Earlier this year Sharon and Ozzy split because of his drug use but have since reconciled. She reports, “He stopped because he knows what he was going to lose, not just me but everything. He says we’re like bread and butter. We fit together so perfectly.”
The family dabbled in a reality show ‘The Osbourne’s' circa 2002-2005, with oldest daughter Aimee Osbourne posing in promo photos but opting out of appearing with the rest of her family during the four season series. She is now 30 and continues to keep a very low profile — unlike her siblings who have both gravitated to television.
For the record, we didn’t miss one episode of ‘The Osbourne’s' and can still vividly recall Ozzy yelling S-H-A-R-O-N. Good times!
