Sharon Osbourne only gets busy with Ozzy on birthdays and holidays

Pride of Britain Awards

Another day, another dose of celebrity TMI. I apologize in advance for the mental pictures this story may conjure. On Monday, the panelists on The Talk talked about intimacy issues. When Valerie Bertinelli asked Sharon Osbourne about her bedroom activities with her rocker hubby Ozzy, she said, “This is a bone of contention in our house.” (I kept reading “boner” instead of “bone” and now cannot stop giggling like a kid.)

The 65-year-old Sharon, whom I still miss on AGT, went on to say that she thinks her 69-year-old husband has a “problem,” stating, “He’s just like a rabbit.” Apparently, for Ozzy, sex doesn’t end at 60, but he and Sharon’s libidos aren’t quite equal, especially after being together for 37 years. As she put it, “I’m like, you know, birthdays, Christmas. At this point in my life, special occasions. It’s Thanksgiving! Why not?”

Sara Gilbert reminded Sharon that when she was asked about sex a few years ago, she quipped, “I’d rather have the flu,” which led her to joke, “No wonder he fiddles other people!” She quickly correcting herself with, “No, he doesn’t, he doesn’t. He’s a good boy.”

Ozzy’s need for sexual affection isn’t anything new. Last year, he was caught sleeping with Sharon’s hairdresser, and in an interview with The Telegraph, Sharon says that Ozzy cheated on her with six women. Last May, after the scandal, Ozzy and Sharon renewed their vows in Las Vegas. At the time, Ozzy told Hello, “For me, this was actually our real wedding day. This is the one that I will remember. Sharon and I have been through so much, and this honestly feels like a new beginning.” Maybe he is being a good boy, who knows?

I still can’t help but wonder if Ozzy was really asking Sharon for sex. He’s so famously marble-mouthed – as any viewing of The Osbournes would demonstrate – that he could just be looking for a cozy pair of socks. I just hope I’ll be up for it at least on special occasions when I’m in my mid-60s.

    I would have never thought that Ozzy had such a drive… He seemed so out of it on his TV show and it was like 15 years ago.

  2. Christina says:

    He probably takes Viagra or something.

  3. LT says:

    Does he really have that much of a drive or does she not have any? It doesn’t sound like his libido is all that high – hers is just nonexistent.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Nonexistent or just curled up in a ball dead on the bedroom floor because of all his cheating and that whole strangling her thing? I think she has fallen into the classic trap of trying to be the “strong” wife who forgives, blames the other women and will hold her family together at any cost, when really she would be better off walking away. There is no strength in staying and accepting abuse for any reason. They are two addicts in a pattern. They are both addicts

      Sharon should read up on Intermittent Reinforcement in relationships, that little bit of love doled out randomly is addictive in itself, that is why she cannot leave him. They are both addicts.

  4. Kittycat says:

    He apparently ‘cheated’ on Sharon with a Russian teenager. He super gross.

    But khloe must be be taking notes on how to have this type of relationship.

  5. Beth says:

    I absolutely love Ozzy and Black Sabbath, but I’d never want to touch him. Considering how much cheating on Sharon he does, I don’t know why she still wants to get busy with the pig even on birthdays and holidays

  6. Darla says:

    Putting aside all of his crap, is it so terrible if at 65, and after being with the same man for decades, you just aren’t interested any more? I’m not saying that all 65 yo’s have no sex drive, so please don’t misunderstand. But for a serial monogamist like me, I can’t imagine being all that excited about having sex at 65 with a man I’ve been doing it with for over 30 years. I mean, if you reach a point where sex just isn’t something you want anymore, shouldn’t that be okay? I’m sorry but I have seen a thing or three, men wise okay? And I don’t believe that at over 60 they are getting it up without viagra too often. So now they pop those pills and their wives have to be into it on a regular basis? What if they’re not?

    • LT says:

      If that works for both parties in the relationship, then great.

      Personally, I would NOT be ok with zero physical intimacy in my marriage – even at 65+. And intimacy doesn’t have to mean viagra-enabled. There are other ways for couples to be physically close.

      • Vizia says:

        Yup, whatever works. Plenty of women I know say, post-childbirth, that they’d be fine with never having sex again. And plenty of women I know in their 60’s and 70’s are still happily sexually active, they just adjust their techniques somewhat around aging issues (there are books about sex and aging, if you’re interested in that kind of thing). And I certainly know men 60+ who have no need for viagra whatsoever!

    • Beth says:

      I know multiple couples in their 60’s, including my parents, (who have been together for 45 years), don’t share a room or have sex because of health problems. My 69 year old father with severe back problems, and early dementia, and my 62 year old mom with her multiple health problems and oxygen tubes, seem to have lost their sex drive. No sex doesn’t mean no love or interest in each other though

    • Eden75 says:

      I can’t imagine not having sex with my SO, even at 65. My parents are still very into each other, at 63 and almost 70, together for 44 years, and my grandparents were still active right up until my grandmother became very ill with Alzheimer’s, together for 66 years.

      It’s different for everyone though. I can’t say that I blame Sharon, Ozzy’s past is well known, even if he doesn’t remember most of it.

      **Edited to add: I know for a 100% fact that my parents do not use Viagra or any variant thereof. My dad has been a heart patient for almost 26 years so it is not allowed. I also know that they are still into each other because I made the mistake of stopping by last weekend without calling first. Ya, don’t do that if you are going to visit my parents.

    • Jesma says:

      Darla, it is only ok if your partner agrees. I would not be ok with my partner imposing his celibacy on me. My dad is 75 and my mom is 68 and they have a very active sex life. He doesn’t take anything because is suspicious of meds and doctors and doesn’t need it so far. They are both healthy though. They jog, bike, swim, and go dancing weekly. If my husband wanted to stop having sex, I wouldn’t leave him. That being said I might look elsewhere for intimacy.

  7. KLO says:

    I thought they got divorced.

  8. HK9 says:

    In my mind, that would make sense since I only picture Ozzy to be conscious on major holidays and no Sharon, we know Ozzy’s a bad boy-that’s how you got him remember?

  9. Veronica S. says:

    Honestly, some people do legitimately undergo hormone shifts that undermine their sex drive in later years. It’s entirely possible she’s just not very interested anymore. The way I look at it, as long as she’s okay with it, they can do what works for them. It’s their marriage. They can figure it out.

    • Eden75 says:

      This, exactly. Not everyone goes through menopause the same or comes out the other side the same. Whatever works for them is right.

  10. Jh says:

    Now, why would she ruin a perfectly good holiday?

  11. Catfoodjunkie says:

    Ladies – unless you’ve been with the same fella 30+ years and are in your 60s, you can’t possibly know how you’ll feel about it then. I guess I’m irked at these steadfast predictions. Sh*t happens, people adjust.
