Reckless Paparazzi Make Sharon Osbourne Worry for Kelly’s Safety
Sharon Osbourne called in this morning to talk to Ryan and guest co-host Selena Gomez, and spoke about a variety of things from Kelly’s weight loss, America’s Got Talent and the price of fame.
When Ryan asked Sharon about how she felt about Kelly’s weight loss, Sharon told Ryan that, “she is still the same girl. I loved her then before, and I love her now…she’s a young woman now.” When asked what was the secret to Kelly’s changed physique? “Dancing,” she answered.
Sharon, who is a judge on the number one show on television, America’s Got Talent, told Ryan that it has been a, “great season,” and that they’ve had “totally different acts, very varied and each one unique”. When asked about the final four she revealed that not only is Michael, but Ozzy’s “pick” as well.
Sharon then discussed Jackie Evancho, the young girl with the voice which Sharon believes is a, “God given gift”. Sharon told Ryan that 10 year old Evancho knows, “how to handle it” but at the end of the day, she is still a ten year old girl. Sharon laughed and said, “she’ll come in and play with my dogs.” When asked about the other judges, Sharon joked that Piers Morgan’s head couldn’t “fit into the room” and that his “entourage gets bigger every week.” Then Sharon got serious and said, “God, we have so much fun. We really do.”
At the end of the interview, Sharon discussed the new talk show she will be on with hosts Julie Chen, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert and Marissa Jaret Winokur, which will be airing October 18 on CBS. “We’re all very different,” Sharon said, “You know, it’s time for another group of women to come and discuss pop culture.” The show, which will be similar to The View format, will have the ladies talking about everything from current news, celebrities and obstacles women face on a day to day bases.
When Selena Gomez asked Sharon for some advice on how to handle the fame, Sharon opened up about how although she has been in the business for a long time, it still bothers her. She told Selena about how the other day while having a girls day with her daughter, paparazzi were following them everywhere and how she had a meltdown in a bookstore. “I was in the bookstore having my meltdown,” she told Selena, “and I looked outside and there was a homeless person and I thought…what the hell am I on about?”
