Osbournes Say Reality TV was the Biggest Mistake They Made
In 2002 ‘The Osbournes’ aired on MTV to high ratings and making every member of the Osbourne family a household name. The family however now regrets doing the show.
On a recent interview on the Graham Norton show, Sharon would call the reality show, “the biggest mistake” of her life. “We both worked to continue a lifestyle we had become accustomed to and we had to travel so my kids spent quite a time away from us and you can never get that time back,” she admitted. “It was the biggest mistake I ever did, but would I have wanted to live a lesser life? You make the most of what you have. I don’t know how, but Jack and Kelly came out just great.”
Jack was recently on Dancing with the Stars, while Kelly has recurring host role on Fashion Police. But even though his kids have turned out to be successful, Ozzy agrees with his wife that the reality show damaged his family. “The kids couldn’t handle it, my wife couldn’t handle it: She had colon cancer,” he told the Quietus. “On the one hand it was phenomenal, on the other hand I had to watch my family [suffer].” Ozzy himself fell off the wagon. He added, “Would we do it again? I dunno. I don’t think so.”
