Sharon Osbourne has finally opened up about what caused her emergency hiatus from the CBS daytime series “The Talk” in May 2015.
“I had a complete and utter breakdown,” Osbourne said Monday on the CBS daytime show. “I couldn’t think, I couldn’t talk, I could do nothing. My brain just shut down on me…I was doing too much of everything, thinking that I’m Superwoman, I’m so strong, I can handle this, I can handle that.”
Unfortunately, the workload proved too much and Osbourne was sent to L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital for observation. She was moved to a mental health facility when her problems were found to not be physical.
“My family put me into a facility and in this facility they diagnose you, and you do a lot of group therapy,” she said. “The group therapy was the best, because there were other people suffering from the same thing. I didn’t want to talk, didn’t want to eat, didn’t want to speak to anyone.”
Osbourne went on to say that it took “a good six, seven months” before she was able to come to grips with what had happened and find the best mix of medication and therapy.
Osbourne’s tribulations didn’t end there. She and her husband, legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne, briefly split earlier this year after it was revealed he had an ongoing affair with his hair stylist.
