After Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday to reveal that Ozzy was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease last February, Sharon appeared on her own show, CBS’ The Talk, to declare that nothing will keep them from trying to get Ozzy healthy enough to go back out on tour.
An emotional Sharon thanked everyone on The Talk, as well as Ozzy’s fans and their friends, for the “outpouring of positive reaction from everyone that watches the show, and our friends, it’s heartwarming.”
She added, “People have been amazing with their outpouring of love for my husband, and I thank you. Friends that we haven’t spoken to in years have come out and supported Ozzy, and it makes me feel good.”
When the audience applauded, Sharon said, “I thank you so, so much, and we’re not gonna stop until Ozzy is back up there on that stage where he belongs. It was what he’s born to do and that’s it!”
While the 71-year-old metal legend currently is taking medication, Sharon revealed while on Good Morning America that she and Ozzy, having exhausted their options in the U.S., were going to Switzerland in April to consult a doctor who might be able to boost his immune system.
In late May, Ozzy is scheduled to start a tour in support of his upcoming album Ordinary Man, which is due out next month.
