Sharon Osbourne

Candles Are BANNED

At the Osbourne House

Don't even THINK about lighting a candle inside the Osbourne house -- because Sharon Osbourne tells TMZ, she's completely banned open flames from her home ... after an unattended candle nearly burned the place down last month.

TMZ broke the story ... Sharon forgot to put out the candle before going to sleep one night ... and the fire spread.

Thanks to the BHFD, the damage was minimal -- but on her way out of a Grammy party last night, the former "America's Got Talent" judge tells us ... she's done playing with fire.

"No more candles," she said.  "Only in church!"

Sharon Osbourne is an old battle-axe. And in addition she's a dumbass, apparently.

Is this a PSA against candles? Most people can use them responsibly without burning their house down. I think Sharon is overreacting. First she called the fire department after the fire was out. Then she is banning candles from her home.


The only ones that fall over and start fires are the tapers. You just have to make sure you blow them out before you lie down to sleep. Other candles burn themselves out. You just light them on a flame proof base.


If tapers aren't set perfectly straight and in perfectly still air, they can build up wax drippings on one side. Then the weight makes them keel over.


Is Sharon saying that she is a Catholic? They are the only ones who light candles in church. I thought she was half Jewish. I thought as was a lost soul.
