A lot of interesting things have happened to Sharon Osbourne on the set of The Talk, but it was her conspicuous absence from the show yesterday that proved to be the most intriguing. Over the weekend, reports spread that she and husband Ozzy Osbourne are calling it quits and her choice to play hooky was pretty ominous.
Today, she was back on her show and sought to clear the air about her husband moving out of their home (then moving back in after she moved out) on the heels of cheating rumors. She walked out onto the set to huge cheers and a chant of “Sha-ron, Sha-ron, Sha-ron!”
She was refreshingly candid, which is a rarity when it comes to big celebrity breakups. When asked why this bump in the road of their marriage was the last she could handle, she simply said, “Because I’m 63 years of age, and I can’t keep living like this.”
Most excellently, she came out holding a glass of lemonade, which Julie Chen pointed out before Osbourne quipped, “I’m loving it!” as she sipped. I don’t want to ruin this very of-the-moment cultural reference by spoon-feeding it to you or anything, but it certainly gives credence to the rumors that she got cheated on.
Watch above to watch her thank her cohosts and friends for their support and reiterate how empowered and happy she is feeling in the wake of the split. Whether the separation willl lead to a full-blown divorce remains to be seen, but given how open Osbourne is being, it is safe to assume we will know soon enough.
