The Osbournes

"The real figures are more," Ozzy's wife and manager said this week in a wild interview. 

"Everybody always needs more money," Sharon told The National Post, a Canadian newspaper. 

Sharon spoke for the first time about the lengthy, rabbit-punching negotiations with MTV for a second season of the hit show. 

Her tactics to pressure the network into a deal included prematurely announcing a deal last month during an appearance on the Tonight Show, weeks before MTV agreed to its terms. 

For its part, MTV played hardball too — refusing to air Kelly Osbourne's new video and keeping the series off the air in Britain until it had a new deal. 

"We've always done well," she conceded. "But we've never been offered millions by anyone before. 

"And I spend like a [expletive]. 

"My philosophy is, I don't want to be the richest person in the graveyard. I don't want to regret anything. I don't want to wait. I want to taste it, live it, [expletive] it, eat it all now." 

The expletive-laden Osbournes is billed as the first reality sitcom and when it debuted last winter it became an instant smash hit overnight — landing at the top of cable's ratings chart with as many as 8 million viewers . 

The show's producers spent months living in the Osbourne's palatial Beverly Hills mansion filming Ozzy, Sharon and two of their teenaged kids, Kelly 16, and Jack 15. 

The end product was an intimate, wacky look at one of the world's most famous alcoholic, drug addicted heavy-metal rockers who also happens to be a great, albeit unconventional, dad.
