Sharon Osbourne is married to rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, with whom she has three children.From Publishers Weekly:
Having raised her profile from wife of shock-rocker Ozzy and mother of three creatively dysfunctional kids to a celebrity in her own right with the hit reality TV show The Osbournes, Sharon Osbourne lets fans in on her early tumultuous years during the British rock-and-roll scene in this raunchy, take-no-prisoners memoir. Born in Brixton, London, in 1952, the only daughter of a Jewish singer from Manchester, Don Arden, and his Irish dancer wife, Osbourne grew up among entertainers grasping to survive in the cutthroat business and with little time to nurture her childhood. Indeed, a strong theme in Osbourne's frank account is how her father, who became a formidable manager of early rock-and-rollers like Gene Vincent and the Animals, used her as a pawn in his get-rich schemes; by 15 she had quit school and started working at her father's office, repelling creditors and appeasing bailiffs. Arden's fortunes rose and fell, and Osbourne met and partied with hip rockers like ELO and Black Sabbath, originally fronted by Ozzy Osbourne. From London to L.A., the riot of parties didn't quit, and the drinking usually escalated to violence and destruction of hotel rooms, especially during the Osbournes' long, improbably durable marriage. Fond of luxury and her bed, Osbourne is rip-roaring chatty and never boring. (Oct.)
