Sharon Osbourne publicly addressed her marital issues during an appearance on her daytime series The Talk on Tuesday. News emerged at the weekend that Sharon had split from her husband of 33 years, Ozzy Osbourne, and she chose not to take part in Monday's taping of the chat show.
But the next day she was back, pointedly walking out carrying a glass of lemonade – seemingly a reference to Beyoncé's Lemonade, an album about a husband’s infidelity.
Sharon Osbourne has spoken for the first time about her split from Ozzy
"I'm doing great," she told the audience. "I really, really am. I honestly am empowered and I have found this inner strength. I can handle this."
It has been alleged that Ozzy, 67, was unfaithful with celebrity hairdresser Michelle Pugh, but Sharon chose not to address the claims. "I honestly at this point today have no idea what I'm doing with the rest of my life," she explained.
"I just need time to think about myself, and what do I want for the rest of my life. (I'm) getting to the last chapter of my life. I really want to think carefully about where I want to go… because I am 63 years of age and I can't keep living like this."
The couple have been married for 33 years
Sharon also revealed that Ozzy had returned to their marital home in Beverly Hills on Monday – which led to her leaving. "We're talking," she said of their current status. "I spoke to him last night. I'm not with him, but I speak to him."
She continued: "I don't know what I want. I've got to follow my heart and I don't even know what my heart is telling me right now. I'm just trying to take it all in, process it and do it calmly and in a timely fashion."
Sharon did make it clear that she still loves her husband. "I love Ozzy dearly," she said. "He's given me unbelievable life, he's given me three gorgeous children. I love him."
Sharon also thanked all her fans and co-hosts for the outpouring of support. "It's honestly given me strength," she added. "I'm not gonna cry about anything, because there's nothing to cry about."
