Sharon Osbourne Admits She Had the ‘Toughest Year of Her Life’ after Her Husband’s Accident
On “The Talk,” Sharon Osbourne revealed that 2019, with her husband’s many health scares, has been the most trying time for her yet.
Ozzy Osbourne, her husband of 36 years, has been plagued by many undesirable incidents this year. The health scares kept happening one after the other; he suffered bronchitis, pneumonia, and even had a home accident.
As if that weren't enough, he had to undergo surgery to correct complications from a past injury.
The unfortunate series of incidents resulted in Ozzy canceling or postponing stage appearances and many more. Sharon, ever the doting wife, explained that it had been a very tasking year while co-hosting the famous CBS' daytime talk show "The Talk".
“Probably this year has been the toughest year of my life. My husband's illness. His accident has been absolutely devastating to me, to everybody. And it's definitely been the most toughest ride I've had so far, and I hope the only tough ride. I can't take anymore.”
The Osbournes have been married for so long but have also had their shares of the bad times. An immense battle with addiction to alcohol and drugs almost destroyed their marriage. Ozzy even once physically abused Sharon while he was in a drunken haze. At the time, it seemed like the pair were on the verge of a divorce, but that never happened.
They instead formed a close-knit bond which couldn't be more evident as Sharon passionately spoke about her family on the show. The mother of three exuded great honesty disclosing that their past troubles don't measure up to those of this year.

Proud to partner with @MediaplanetUSA on their recently published Opioid Awareness campaign, which sheds light on the opioid epidemic in the U.S. My family has been deeply affected by opioid use, and it is my goal to change the conversation about the unfair stigma attached to addiction.

Sara Gilbert, who is also a co-host on the show, prompted the famous author by asking:
"What was it like to read that it was also [your son] Jack's toughest year?"
In response, Sharon said:
"I cried, and I felt so proud that he's my boy and the way he conducts himself."
Her honest demeanor during the show elicited several reactions from fans, and they took to Twitter to send out well wishes to the couple by commenting on a post by the “The Talk” team.
“You are such a strong and unique woman ... Ozzy must be so proud to have such a wonderful wife …”
Sharon is indeed admirable for remaining strong through the turbulent times, but she is not free from the damaging effects. She recently made an appearance on “Loose Women,” and it was there she detailed how her depression became overwhelming and caused her to attempt suicide.
