This year, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, will celebrate their 36th wedding anniversary. Sharon met Ozzy when her father, Don Arden managed Black Sabbath. Arden fired Ozzy in 1979 then Sharon became his manager and the rest as they say, is history.
In light of the success of managing her husband, she formed Sharon Osbourne Management and branched out to manage other acts such as Motorhead, Lita Ford, Queen and Smashing Pumpkins just to name a few!
Amongst all the craziness, she and Ozzy had 3 children, Aimee, Kelly and Jack. Kelly & Jack were featured on their reality tv show, on MTV, The Osbournes where you got to step into a day in the life of how much work it took to keep that family together. There were a lot of crazy antics and was never a dull moment!
In 2016, Sharon and Ozzy had split for almost a year due to Ozzy’s cheating scandal with his hair stylist, Michelle Pugh. However, a year later, they renewed their vows to one another and seem to have gotten past it. Thank goodness!
Sharon went on to be on several tv shows such as The X-Factor, America’s Got Talent, & The Talk. She has also written 3 books, “Extreme” (co-written with Penelope Dening) of her difficult childhood with her father and also touched base on the highs and lows of her marriage to Ozzy. Secondly, her book “Survivor” which was all about her overcoming colorectal cancer, which she did with grace. And finally, her book “Unbreakable” which is a story about her family’s ups and downs, trials and tribulations as well the highs like becoming a grandmother for the first time and seeing her children overcome obstacles.
Mrs. O. is the glue that keeps them all together and she has done one hell of a job.
