Ozzy says 'The Osbournes' Sharon Osbourne now cancer-free
By Wade Paulsen, 04/02/2003
The Associated Press reports that Ozzy Osbourne says his wife Sharon is now cancer-free after months of treatment.
Sharon announced last year, as reported here, that she was suffering from colon cancer which had spread to her lymph nodes and that she was beginning chemotherapy to combat it. The medical tests and chemo were captured during the second season of The Osbournes reality TV show on MTV.
The AP reports that Ozzy also said that he was unprepared to deal with both the cancer and his show's cult-hit status: "With Sharon's cancer and the success of the TV show, I lost it last year, I just freaked out. I think I had something like a nervous breakdown — my nervous system just imploded. This is all too much for me sometimes."
Uh, we don't know who really said this, but we doubt it was Ozzy. Why? Because it's more than 40 words long without ever once using a swear word (the f-word alone should have appeared about 5 times), and it's reasonably coherent.
