Sharon Osbourne collapses from exhaustion, and says that she is taking a hiatus from The Talk.
According to Us Weekly, Osbourne had been in New York and Toronto last week, and had been keeping a very hectic schedule as of late. She was at her home in Los Angeles when she collapsed on Friday. Her rep released a statement explaining that Osbourne has been advised to take a month off of work.
“Upon her return she collapsed from mental and physical fatigue. Her doctors report that she is suffering from ‘extreme exhaustion’ and assessed that she most likely returned to work too soon after being hospitalized recently for pneumonia. Sharon has been advised and has agreed to to take a month hiatus to recover fully from these recent events. Sharon would like to thank everyone at ‘The Talk’ for granting her this time off and to all friends, family and others for their incredible support.”
News that Sharon Osbourne collapsed comes just months after she had hernia surgery. After the surgery, Osbourne came down with pneumonia. She missed some work while she was recovering, but it sounds like she didn’t take enough time off to completely get well.
On The Talk since 2010, Osbourne, 62, has been a staple alongside the other women (Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Sheryl Underwood, and Aisha Tyler), but is being forced to focus on her health at this time. It is believed that Sharon will return to the show after she takes this hiatus. According to Mail Online, it is unknown who will fill in for Sharon. In the past, her daughter, Kelly Osbourne, has sat in, and many think that Kelly could be asked to step in for the next month while her mom is recuperating.
Sharon Osbourne’s collapse has fans worried. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, many have wished her a speedy recovery. Sharon has dealt with her fair share of medical issues (she battled cancer in 2012), but has made her way back each time. This time should be no different.
