Sharon Osbourne Sobs for Jack on Dancing with the Stars

Sharon Osbourne cried watching Jack Osbourne on ‘Dancing with the Stars’.

The showbiz matriarch couldn’t hold back her tears as her son took to the dancefloor on Monday evening (16.09.13) with his professional dance partnerCheryl Burke for the first night of the new US ballroom dancing series.

Jack has had a difficult year, having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012, followed by the tragic news his wife Lisa Stelly had miscarried their second child.

The brave star’s father Ozzy Osbourne and Lisa were also in the audience to support the 27-year-old star and his pledge to raise awareness of the degenerative nerve disorder by appearing on the show.

Sharon posted a series of emotional messages  about Jack on Twitter, encouraging people to vote: ”@OfficialOzzy and I are SO PROUD of @JackOsbourne! He’s never danced before & he just did fabulous on @DancingABC! pic.twitter.com/uQXGyCY9WB”

Meanwhile, his older sister Kelly Osbourne – who placed third on the show in 2009 – was distraught to be missing his debut performance due to her London Fashion Week commitments.

She wrote: ”In London almost 1am I can’t sleep all I am thinking about is my brother @JackOsbourne I cant stand that Im not there to support him #dwts

”don’t FORGET to VOTE for my brother my hero @JackOsbourne #dwts

”To all my #kellyheros PleaSe keep me posted on how @JackOsbourne is doing on #dwts! I need updating!!! (sic)”

Jack scored a solid 23 for a foxtrot to the tune of ‘Pack Up’ by Eliza Doolittle.

He told the crowd: ”Right now I’m physically able to do ‘DWTS’ but it might not always be this way so I don’t want to miss this opportunity.”

Ozzy Osbourne Starts House Fire Cooking Bacon

Ozzy Osbourne almost set fire to his home when frying bacon this week.

The 64-year-old Black Sabbath rocker tried to make a breakfast sandwich at his Beverly Hills, California, mansion on Wednesday and nearly burned down the property for a second time this year.

Supposedly Ozzy was too dazed to pay full attention while cooking.

‘Ozzy has just got back from four months abroad on tour, and was still a little jet-lagged and disorientated,’ a source told British newspaper The Mirror.

‘Shortly before bedtime, he went to make himself a little snack. Unfortunately, when frying the bacon, he managed to set light to the pan and triggered the smoke alarm.’

His wife Sharon was in the UK filming The X Factor at the time and she took to Twitter to lament over the accident immediately after it happened: ‘I’m in London, @OfficialOzzy is in LA making a bacon sandwich last night and the fire brigade ended up at our house!!’

But luckily emergency authorities were on the scene quickly to assist.

‘Because the Osbournes’ alarm system is so advanced, and Ozzy has form for this kind of thing, an alert was immediately sent to the LAFD ‘ and officers were dispatched,’ the source detailed.

‘Ozzy was mortified when he realised the fuss he’d caused and apologised profusely to the fire crew. He has promised to be more careful, and less gung ho, in future.’

Ozzy and Sharon suffered another fire scare in January.

After the couple fell asleep before extinguishing a candle which exploded in its glass vase and sparked a small fire in their living room, Ozzy singed his hair and injured his hand while trying to put out the blaze.


Authorities arrived to rescue the couple in time and Sharon, 60, told TMZ shortly after the accident she would be banning candles from the home.

Please follow The Mac Wire  on Twitter and Facebook.

Singer-turned-TV personality Kelly Osbourne will wed her fiance Matthew Mosshart in her native U.K. summer of 2014.

The 28-year-old daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne confirmed she is engaged to the vegan chef last week, but revealed he had actually popped the question during a romantic New Year’s Eve moment on vacation in Anguilla.

Now Kelly’s mother, Sharon, has spilled a few details about the happy couple’s big plans.

During Monday’s episode of her daytime show The Talk, she said, “My daughter Kelly is now officially engaged and she’s planning a summer wedding next year at our home in England.”

The bride-to-be has also given fans a peek at her custom-made Tiffany engagement ring by taking to her Instagram.com blog on Saturday to show off the new sparkler.

Sharon Osbourne To Testify in Michael Jackson Case

Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne has been subpoenaed to testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial.

Opening statements in the battle between the King of Pop’s mother, Katherine Jackson, and concert promoters AEG Live began in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday and on Tuesday, Ozzy Osbourne’s wife was served with papers demanding her attendance to serve as a witness for the prosecution.

The TV personality had previously been named as a potential witness after confessing that she may have evidence to support Katherine’s claim that promoters were negligent in ignoring life-threatening health concerns while organizing the Thriller hitmaker’s doomed This Is It comeback gigs.

Speaking out during an episode of her chat show The Talk in early April, Osbourne said, “There were certain people that worked at that company (AEG Live) that knew that Michael Jackson was not well and didn’t care because it was business. And, at the end of the day, whether he performed or he didn’t, they would still make money, and I’ve had conversations with certain people at that company who have said exactly that to me.

“If they would like me to go to court, the Jackson family, I will stand up and tell you who said that to me.”

Osbourne was served with court papers shortly before filming began on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk, and she has no problem with the order.

She explains, “I was like, what do you do (after being served)? You do your duty. Somebody asks you to come to court, you are subpoenaed and you do your duty.”

Katherine Jackson is reportedly seeking more than $40 billion from AEG Live executives for loss of future earnings and other damages. She also wants the concert bosses to be held responsible for hiring Conrad Murray, the medic who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for causing the superstar’s death in 2009.

Ozzy Osbourne Films Black Sabbath Return

Ozzy Osbourne’s son Jack followed his father and his Black Sabbath bandmates to document their big return on camera.

The group reunited for a handful of shows last year and announced plans to release a 2013 album of new material, and they have been busy in the studio in recent months.

They released a new YouTube video of their studio sessions this week, and Britain’s The Sun newspaper reports reality TV star-turned-filmmaker Jack Osbourne is the brains behind the clip.

Speaking about the new material in the video, Ozzy says, “This new Black Sabbath album is quite possibly the most important album of my career.

“I want it to sound current but still have that Sabbath vibe. I make an album that I like and then if someone else likes it – great.”

Jack Osbourne has previously recorded his father for 2011 documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne.

Ozzy Osbourne Injured in Fire

Ozzy Osbourne required medical attention on Thursday morning after singeing his hair and injuring his hand while tackling a fire at his home in Beverly Hills.

A candle the rock icon and his manager wife Sharon had left burning through the night exploded in its glass vase and sparked a small blaze in their living room and quick-thinking Ozzy, whose arm had been bandaged up following hand surgery on Wednesday, tried to air the room as Sharon rushed to collect some water, but her efforts to extinguish the oily flames only caused the fire to spread, singeing chunks of the rocker’s long locks in the process.

Firefighters were called to the scene and quickly put out the blaze, and Sharon is thankful for their prompt response.

Revealing all about her early morning drama on The Talk on Thursday, she explained, “Everybody is fine. There was only Ozzy, myself and the dogs in the house last night.

“At five o’ clock (in the morning), I heard a noise like metal had fallen. I thought it was my housekeeper coming in and she had dropped her keys on the tiles, that’s what it sounded like, so I didn’t pay any attention. A few minutes later, my eyes are stinging and my throat’s closing up, (I thought), ‘Something’s weird smelling in here’.

“Then my dog started to bark. I go downstairs and the whole living room (was on fire). The candle had burst and the cracking sound was the glass and the candle exploding…

“My husband had an operation on his hand yesterday so he’s in a complete cast… He comes down and goes, ‘Oh, the fire, the fire!’ (and tries to put it out) with his hand in the cast. Then he opens the French doors and I go into the kitchen and throw water on it and it erupted…

“Ozzy’s front of his hair from (his ear down is), gone! His eyebrows (are gone)… he’s got like, skinned cheeks. We are, like, two idiots, it was like The Three Stooges… Everything you are not meant to do – go to bed with candles alight, open the doors and put water on – we did it all.”

The couple got a telling off from the emergency workers and now Sharon has warned other candle lovers to be extra careful.

The reality TV star also used the opportunity to issue a sincere apology to Ozzy and vow never to light another candle in their house ever again.

She said, “They (the firemen) come up, they give us a lecture, and Ozzy’s like, ‘She’s been doing this to me for 32 years! You tell her, you tell her, no more candles!’

“I apologize to my husband because he put himself out. He made his hand worse, it started to bleed, the whole nine yards, and I’m sorry and I love you and I will never light a candle again…

“I want to thank the firemen from Beverly Hills Fire Station because you are magnificent there and I want to say to everyone out there, please, please check your candles before you go to bed.”

Black Sabbath Announce New album, 2012 World tour

The original members of Black Sabbath  have confirmed they’re heading back into the studio to record an album of new material with top producer Rick Rubin.

Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Ward, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler reunited for a press conference at the Whiskey A-Go-Go in Los Angeles on Friday morning (11Nov11) – the 41st anniversary of their first concert at the fabled venue – to announce big plans for 2012.

As well as recording their first studio album together since 1978, the group will tour the world and headline Britain’s Download Festival in June (12).

Earlier this month (Nov11), guitarist Iommi revealed the band had secretly regrouped and rehearsed at Osbourne’s home in California.

He told Billboard.com, “It was for a bit of fun, and to see if we could all play. It was good, but it was just purely, ‘Let’s have a go and see what happens.'” The four original members of the group reunited on and off between 1997 and 2006 for live events, but a feud over the band’s name drove a wedge between Iommi and Osbourne and led to a brief legal battle which has since been dropped.
