Sharon Osbourne confirms split with Ozzy Osbourne
Sharon Osbourne talked on CBS's "The Talk" on May 10 about the split from her husband of 33 years, Ozzy Osbourne. You can read some excerpts below.
Asked if it was true that she kicked Ozzy out of the house, or if that was just "made up," Sharon said: "No it's not a rumor. It's true!" As to whether or not that situation was permanent, Sharon said: "No, he's back, and I'm out of the house. Ozzy and I are talking, I spoke to him last night. I'm not with him, but I speak with him. He's given me an unbelievable life and he's given me three gorgeous children and I love him. I'm just trying to take it all in, take it all in and process it."
Sharon said she has been trying to stay away from media reports about the split: "I've been avoiding looking at any pictures or reading anything. I know whats gone on, and I don't need to read about it, it's like putting salt in a wound and I don't need to."
About her future: "I'm doing great. I really, really am. I'm honestly empowered and I have found this inner strength and I'm like, 'What's next?' I don't know where I'm going, who I'm going with, and I just need time to sit and really think about myself and what do I really want for my life. I honestly at this point today have no idea what I'm doing with the rest of my life. I just need time to think about myself, and what do I want for the rest of my life. I'm getting to the last chapter of my life. I really want to think carefully about where I want to go… because I'm 63 years of age, and I can't keep living like this."
Asked if she thought that she and Ozzy were breaking up for good, Sharon said: "I honestly don't know. At this point I cannot answer that, because I don't know what I want. I've got to follow my heart, and I don't even know what my heart is telling me right now. I'm just trying to take it all in, process it and do it calmly and in a timely fashion."
