With the premiere of his highly anticipated return to reality television quickly approaching, Ozzy Osbourne has shared his worries with the world. He confesses that when he and wife Sharon first joined a reality show in California, it nearly pushed their family over the edge. As we gear up for Black Sabbath frontman’s relocation from Cali to Buckinghamshire on their new series, Ozzy can’t help but worry about what lies ahead.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, along with their two younger children Jack and Kelly, experienced meteoric success when The Osbournes aired from 2002-2005. Their eldest daughter Aimee wisely chose to not take part in this newfound fame for her parents. Nonetheless, Ozzy acknowledged that the shooting of the series had a substantial effect on his family life.
“I don’t know how The Kardashians have done it for so long. It sent us crazy at the end,” Ozzy said on SiriusXM. “I am not sorry I did it, but after three or four years I said, ‘Do you know what? We’re going to lose somebody because it is getting too crazy’.”

Despite his many years as part of the legendary Black Sabbath, Ozzy was taken aback by the level of fame and notoriety that their show brought to him and his family.
“There is rock and roll fame, which is pretty intense, but that Osbourne level was just unbelievable. The kids paid for it. They all ended up doing drugs. Jack got clean and sober on that show, Kelly messed up on that show, I was messed up and Sharon got cancer.”
While Kelly and Jack juggle their familial responsibilities in the US, it remains unclear what part they will play in the forthcoming series.
A release date for new series, which will air on BBC, is not known yet.
