Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Rachel Osbourne (née Levy; born 9 October 1952) is an English television personality, businesswoman, and author. She is married to heavy metal singer-songwriter Ozzy Osbourne and first came into public prominence after appearing on The Osbournes (2002-2005), a reality television show that aired on MTV, which followed her family's daily life. Osbourne later became a talent show judge on television shows such as The X Factor (2004-2007, 2013-2017) and America's Got Talent (2007-2012). Osbourne is credited with reviving her husband's heavy metal career by founding the summer Ozzfest tour. Since 2011, she has been a co-host on the daytime series The Talk. Osbourne is one of the original hosts from its launch in October 2010 and the only one still with the show. In September 2014, it was announced that Osbourne would become an occasional panellist on the British lunchtime television programme Loose Women as part of the show's relaunch. On both shows, Osbourne and co-hosts/panellists discuss topical issues, ranging from daily politics and current affairs, to celebrity gossip. Osbourne has also established herself in the publishing industry, releasing three autobiographies and one novel. Her first autobiography, Extreme, went to number one on the Sunday Times Bestseller List (UK) where it remained for 15 weeks and sold over 621,000 copies in hardback, becoming the biggest-selling autobiography since British records began and the most successful female autobiography in history.
