Many fans of the show theorized that scenes of reconciliation between Sharon and her father had been heavily scripted. One instance is the time Ozzy demanded that his wife call her dad. “I strongly suggest you pick up the [freaking] phone and call him.” Then, he said he regretted it.
According to him, that was the worst thing he has ever done as now they are always on the phone with each other.
The Pets Drive Ozzy Mad
A lot of the drama and comedy at “The Osbournes” revolves around pets. There are cats and dogs in the mix, but they all cause problems, especially Lola, constantly triggering Ozzy.
Lola’s bad behavior even drove Sharon to hire a pet therapist.
It Wasn’t All Fun and Games
Halfway through the show’s four-season run, Sharon was diagnosed with a serious medical condition. The dramatic news affected the entire family as they braced to lose her.
Ozzy was also in an ATV accident where he injured himself badly. Luckily, both parents were treated and recovered.
Taking the Good With the Bad
In an interview with “The Telegraph,” Ozzy memorably said of the reality show, “The good side was that it was the biggest thing since sliced bread around the world.”
However, he added that the stress of the show drove him and his kids towards substance abuse.
Kelly Is an Open Book
Kelly talks about it in her memoir recalling the bad times during which she would take an increasing amount of pills every day and hoping to never wake up. Thankfully, Sharon forced her daughter into a treatment center.
Since then, Kelly has gone there several times and stayed sober for four years this last stretch. According to her post on Instagram, she relapsed again in 2021.
