How Did Ozzy Osbourne Meet Sharon?, Sharon Rachel Osbourne (née Arden, originally Levy; born 9 October 1952) is an English television host, author, music manager, businesswoman and promoter as well as the wife of heavy metal singer-songwriter Ozzy Osbourne.
She came into public prominence after appearing in The Osbournes, a reality television show that followed her family’s daily routine. Osbourne later became a judge on the talent shows The X Factor and America’s Got Talent. Her autobiography, Extreme, has sold in excess of two million copies.
After the success of The Osbournes and The X Factor, hosting her own chat shows and securing advertising contracts, Osbourne was ranked as the 25th richest woman in Britain on the 2009 Sunday Times Rich List. Sharon and husband, Ozzy Osbourne, are currently ranked as the 724th richest people in Britain with an estimated joint wealth of £110 million. Sharon Osbourne is credited with reviving her husband’s heavy metal career by founding the summer Ozzfest tour. She currently lives in California and is one of five co-hosts of the daytime series, The Talk, where she discusses controversial topics and contemporary issues. The Talk premiered on 18 October 2010. BBC announced she’s expected to host a syndicated daytime version Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in 2012.
On the Sunday Times Rich List 2006, Osbourne was listed as the 44th richest woman in Britain and the 60th richest woman on the 2007 list. In the overall British list in 2006, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne appeared together as the 554th richest people with a combined wealth of £100 million. They are currently ranked as the 700th richest people in Britain maintaining the previous wealth estimate of £100 million.
Osbourne was quoted in The Guardian newspaper on 9 December 2006 as having sent her own excrement in Tiffany boxes on more than one occasion to people she felt had unreasonably criticized her or her family. When a journalist criticised Jack and Kelly, who were in their early teens, Osbourne sent a box of excrement with a note saying “I heard you’ve got an eating disorder. Eat this.”
Osbourne has stated that the biggest mistake of her life was to have an abortion. By her account, pressure from others, principally her mother, influenced her decision at the young age of seventeen to pursue the procedure.
Sharon Osbourne (then Sharon Arden) met her future husband, Ozzy, at the age of 18 while working for her father, Don Arden, who was managing Black Sabbath at the time. When Ozzy was sacked from Black Sabbath in 1979, Sharon started to date him and took over his management as a solo artist. Three years later, Ozzy and Sharon were married in Maui, Hawaii, on 4 July 1982.
For years the Osbourne marriage was plagued by alcohol, drug use, and violence, with Sharon having even been arrested for driving while intoxicated. The couple used to physically fight regularly and, according to Sharon Osbourne, they would “beat”. She has described herself as “a beaten woman” when she was at the hands of husband Ozzy where he once knocked out her front teeth. She once retaliated by throwing a full bottle of scotch at his head. The most notorious incident arose in August 1989 when Ozzy was arrested for attempted murder after he had returned from a peace festival in Moscow, Russia, and tried to strangle Sharon in a haze of alcohol and drugs. After the incident, he spent three months in rehabilitation as a result of his actions, after which time, Sharon Osbourne said she regained her strength in their relationship and did not press charges.
