One thing is for sure, anything that Sharon Osbourne wants to do or wants to say – Ozzy Osbourne will stand by her side every step of the way; even if it’s not the best stance to take either.
Taking a look back, Sharon was fired from The Talk as it was said that she hurled racial slurs in the direction of co-host, Julie Chen. This claim came from multiple un-named sources, but it would, of course, be problem enough to end Sharon’s run on The Talk.
Sharon would deny these claims and eventually, we would catch word of the family moving out of America to move back to England. While there has been a bit of silence since the move was first spoken about, recently, Ozzy explained that the decision to move was inspired by the backlash toward Sharon from the March 2021 exit from the daytime talk show, The Talk, following her defense of Piers Morgan’s controversial remarks questioning the validity of Meghan Markle’s discussion on mental health during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“When my wife got called a racist on [The Talk], she is absolutely not a racist,” Ozzy told Consequence. “Her friend is Piers Morgan… She didn’t say, ‘I agree with him.’ She just respected his ability to have freedom of speech. That’s all that she said. And she got a lot of flak from that, so we actually had to have f–king armed guards and all that.”
Sharon also spoke to the outlet for the interview, explaining that Los Angeles is no longer the “heaven” she once thought it was. “In the ’70s, if you loved music, this was the place to be. It’s not that hub anymore. It’s not exciting anymore. It hasn’t gone sideways, it’s gone down,” she said. “It’s not a fun place to live. It’s dangerous here. Every big city’s got crime, but I don’t feel safe here. Neither does Ozzy.”
Ozzy, however, then expressed another strong desire to remain stateside: “To be honest with you, I don’t want to go back [to England]. F— that.”
Ozzy also said he doesn’t want Johnny Depp to play him in a movie, “I don’t want to have anyone like Johnny Depp act as me.
