Appearing on her show “The Talk” on Tuesday, Sharon spoke publicly for the first time about her split from her husband of 33 years, just days after news broke that Ozzy had allegedly cheated on her with a hairstylist.
“Because I’m 63 years of age and I can’t keep living like this,” Sharon said in response to Sara Gilbert’s question of why she finally initiated a split.
The longtime couple, who have three children, nearly divorced in 2013 after Ozzy fell off the wagon.
With her head held high and no visible tears, Sharon walked out on set Tuesday holding a glass of “Lemonade” — an ode to Beyoncé’s new album about her husband Jay Z’s alleged affairs.
Sharon confirmed that she initially kicked Ozzy out of their home, but that he has since returned and she’s left the house.
At this point, Sharon doesn’t know whether the breakup will lead to divorce. “At this point today, I have no idea what I’m going to be doing with the rest of my life. I don’t know where I’m going, who I’m going with, and I just need time to think about myself and … what I really want for the rest of my life.”
Sharon did not appear on Monday’s edition of “The Talk,” with co-host Julie Chen explaining Sharon’s absence by saying, “There were many tabloid headlines this past weekend about her and Ozzy … Sharon understandably took today off.”
