Sharon Osbourne, one of the five hosts on CBS’ The Talk, is taking a break for at least a month after recently collapsing from exhaustion. No worries though, says a representative for the talk show host. She has no plans of leaving the show permanently.
People reports that Osbourne, 62, collapsed on Friday evening after a back-to-back trip to New York and Tokyo. After she landed back home in Los Angeles, Osbourne, under extreme mental and physical exhaustion, had a physical breakdown. According to her representative, she’ll be taking a month off of her duties as talk show host to fully recover.
“Sharon has been advised and has agreed 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.”
The incident comes shortly after Osbourne battled a nasty case of pneumonia. Her representative also indicates that she didn’t have time to fully recover from her illness before getting back to work, which plays a part in her recent exhaustion. The pneumonia surfaced after Osbourne underwent hernia surgery earlier this year.
Osbourne has been on the receiving end of unfortunate health over the past years. In 2002, she was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, followed by a double mastectomy in 2012. That same year, her son, Jack Osbourne, 29, announced his battle with multiple sclerosis. Sharon blamed herself shortly after learning of her son’s disease, which has already left him with 60 percent vision loss in one eye, along with dizziness, tremors, and extreme fatigue.
“I kept thinking: ‘What did I do wrong, what did I eat or drink when I was pregnant?’ I feel like it’s somehow my fault. If it was me, you’d think: ‘Ozzy had a reputation and it caught up with him’, but Jack is such a good guy.”
Meanwhile, MTV recently announced an upcoming pilot series, Fancy Bastards, an animated half-hour comedy show in which Sharon Osbourne will co-star alongside Brittany Snow, Jessica Lowe, Natasha Leggero, Nasim Pedrad, John Roberts, and daughter Kelly Osbourne.
With more than 40 years in the entertainment business as a music manager, talent show judge, reality show star, and talk show host, Sharon Osbourne has many fans and supporters of all ages wishing her a speedy recovery.
