Sharon Osbourne didn’t cry for dad
Sharon Osbourne didn’t cry when her father died.
The reality TV star was devastated when her dad, rock ‘n’ roll manager Don Arden, passed away three years ago following his battle with Alzheimer’s Disease but says she couldn’t shed any tears because she had none left.
Sharon - who reconciled with him in 2002 after a 20-year estrangement - said: “I believe I did the right thing by him, in the end.
“He gave me a lot, really. He gave me a great education in life and the work ethic I have now. When he died, I had him sent back to the UK to be buried and I sat with his body in the mortuary … but I didn’t cry - I just couldn’t, because I had cried over years and years .”
Sharon - who married rocker Ozzy Osbourne 28 years ago - also revealed she would never give up on their union, even though it’s tough at times.
The mother-of-three said: “There is a hideous epidemic of marriage being bound up with people’s careers. Everybody needs to stop looking for perfect, cardboard cut-out partners because that won’t work and it won’t last. If you have children and there is still love there then you have to keep trying and absolutely exhaust that love before you opt out. But if you don’t have children, then just head for the hills.”
