"The Talk" star Sharon Osbourne opened up about the reason behind her absence at the studio as she shared that one of her granddaughters came down with the novel Coronavirus.


The new episode of CBS's "The Talk" had the hosts sitting in the studio as they observed the social distancing rule. However, the famous faces were missing as Sharon Osbourne, had to broadcast from home.

In her virtual hosting, the television personality made it known that her granddaughter, Minnie, contracted COVID-19 but was doing fine.

The clip shared to "The Talk's" official Instagram page showed that the little girl did not get the virus from any family members, and so far, no other person has been infected. Osbourne gave her co-hosts updates saying:

"She's okay, she's doing good," she added of Minnie's condition. "I don't have it. Her daddy [Jack Osbourne] doesn't have it. Her mommy doesn't have it. Her sisters don't."


Sharon shared in the video that Minnie, 3, got it from one of her dad's workers. To this effect, the star grandma stated that it was evident that children could contract COVID-19.

The butterfly effect of Minnie's diagnosis forced other family members to be in the recommended 14-day quarantine period.


When asked about when she would be able to return to the studio, Osbourne gleefully shared that she had one more week of quarantining as she emphasized that she does not have the novel Coronavirus and has tested negative several times.

Prior to Minnie's COVID-19 diagnosis, the little girl enjoyed a fun vacation with her family in August. On Instagram, Minnie's dad, Jack Osbourne, showed off their splendid family time, which had his girlfriend, Aree Gearhart, in attendance. 


Little Minnie is one of three daughters born to Jack, from his marriage to Lisa Stelly. Their divorce was finalized last year as they came to a joint custody conclusion.

The butterfly effect of Minnie's diagnosis forced other family members to be in the recommended 14-day quarantine period. However, her loved ones are only keeping up hope that the virus does not extend.


Minnie's famous grandpa, Ozzy Osbourne, is a high-risk individual due to his age and Parkinson's disease diagnosis. These days, Ozzy, also known as the "Prince of Darkness," has to stay indoors while staying safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, this might prove to be a somewhat tricky development for the heavy metal icon who enjoys touring. His loved ones confirmed this during an exclusive People talk as they made it known that Ozzy was always bored when he was not on the road.
