Sharon Osbourne Slit Her Wrists to Prove She’d Die for Ozzy
I honestly didn’t realize that Sharon Osbourne still has a TV show, but apparently she does, and according to Classic Rock, she recently went on that TV show and told this fun story:
“I’ve never discussed [this] out of embarrassment. I was 27 and I was just going out with Ozzy at the time.
“When we first got together we’d drink a lot. We had a session of partying and it’s about four in the morning. He says to me, ‘How much do you really love me?’ And I’m saying, ‘I’d do anything for you. Anything, I absolutely adore you. I’d give my life for you.’
“I’m like, ‘I’d die for you.’ I went to a room service table and there was a steak knife. I get the knife and I’m like, ‘I love you so much’ – and slash, slash, slash on my wrist.”
So, needless to say, someone called emergency services. Sharon tried to convince them that she was just a “dramatic drunk,” but they didn’t buy it, and put her “lockdown.” When people notice and ask about the scars, she says she was attacked by a dog. Which, in a very metaphorical sense, is true.
Y’know, people always judge Sharon of being this allegedly totally heinous witch who won’t let Ozzy retire and is determined to suck every last penny out of the guy’s fame before he dies. But then you remember that he once tried to kill her, and then you learn that he once watched her get up, walk to a room service table, pick up a knife, declare her adoration for him, and then slit her wrists, and then suddenly you’re like, “Well, come on, be reasonable, this poor woman has endured a lot and she should get something out of the goddamn marriage.”
