The relationship between Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne seems to be a mutual one. Ozzy is the crazy, creative one and Sharon, is the calm, cool and collected manager that keeps him sane. However, according to Wednesday’s episode of the The Talk, that wasn’t quite always the case. In fact, Sharon revealed during “Secrets week” on the show that she slit her wrist with a steak knife to prove her love for her then-boyfriend. On the show, she admitted that when she was 27 and dating Ozzy, the two were drinking heavily on night:
“I was 27, I was just going out with Ozzy at the time … and when we first got together, we would drink a lot together,” she explained of when she was touring with the Black Sabbath rocker. “We had a session of partying … and it’s about 4 in the morning and he says to me, ‘How much do you really love me? ‘… And I’m saying, ‘I’d do anything for you, anything, I absolutely adore you … I’d give my life for you.'” “I’m like, ‘I’ll show you how much I love you, I’d die for you’ … so I went to a room service table … and there was a steak knife,” she said. “I get the knife and I’m like, ‘I love you so much’ and slash, slash, slash on my wrist.'”
She showed the knife scars to her shocked co-hosts and the audience. She said that after calling an ambulance, she tried to say that she was just being a “dramatic drunk,” but the authorities took it as a suicide attempt and put her on lockdown. She says that until earlier in the week, she told everyone that she’d been attacked by a dog. Osbourne is 61 now, which would put the time of the initial incident around 1980, the same year Osbourne released his first solo album Blizzard of Ozz. The two would go on to marry in 1982.
