Sharon Osbourne has returned to The Talk and finally opened up about her unexpected separation from husband Ozzy Osbourne after 33 years of marriage.
Sharon took Monday off from The Talk after reports of her split from Ozzy surfaced over the weekend, but the 63-year-old former America's Got Talent judge decided to get back into her normal routine on Tuesday and break her silence.
"I've have missed you all," Sharon told her fellow co-hosts at the start of the show while sipping on some lemonade, according to E! News.
Ironically, Sharon's drink of choice is the name of Beyonce's latest album, Lemonade, which includes fiery tracks about men cheating and women seeking revenge. Reports have circulated infidelity was the cause of Sharon and Ozzy's separation.
"I've been avoiding looking at any pictures, reading anything. I know what's going on. I don't need to read about it and see about it because it's like putting salt on a wound. I don't need to," Sharon said on The Talk, adding that she's "doing great" although clearly emotional.
"I honestly cannot thank people enough for backing me, for saying they love me. Everybody here at my home supporting me, sending me messages of love. I honestly, honestly am empowered and have found this inner strength. Okay -- what's next? I can handle this."
Sharon also answered some questions for the ladies at the table, revealing in the process that Ozzy has returned home and she therefore opted to leave.
"It's right for me. I have no idea what I am going to be doing for the rest of my life," Sharon explained.
"I don't know where I am going, who I'm going with and I just need time to think and really think about myself and what I really want for the rest of my life because this is really like getting to the last chapter of the book and I really want to think about it very carefully where I want to go."
She added, "I am 63 years of age and I can't keep living like this."
Sharon is currently speaking to Ozzy, however, she's unsure whether she should file for divorce.
"I honestly don't know. I can't cry about anything because there's nothing to cry about," Sharon noted.
While Sharon confessed she loves Ozzy "dearly," especially because he's given her "three gorgeous children," she doesn't know what the future holds for them.
"I just want to say that when I know what I'm going to do for the rest of my life, who I'm going to be spending my life with and what I want to do with it -- you will be the first to know," Sharon concluded, according to E! News.
"I have to follow my heart and I don't even know what my heart is telling me right now."
Sharon and Ozzy met in the early 1970s when he was a member of the band Black Sabbath. The pair wed on July 4, 1982 and later welcomed their children Aimee Osbourne, 32, Kelly Osbourne, 31, and Jack Osbourne, 30.
Everyone in the family, except for Aimee, starred on the MTV reality showThe Osbournes between 2002 and 2005. Sharon later judged America's Got Talent from 2007 to 2012.
