Sharon Osbourne

911 Tape ...

A Clue to the Split?

0417-sharon-osbourne-911The Sharon Osbourne 911 tape -- where she desperately calls a dispatcher asking for help after a candle at her home lit a table on fire -- may be a clue to the marital strife that led to their split.

We've re-listened to the tape -- recorded January 17 at 4:45 AM -- and you hear Ozzy at the beginning, sounding somewhat incoherent. It's possible Ozzy was no different than normal, but we now know he's only been sober for around 45 days after 1 1/2 years of abusing drugs and alcohol, so that would mean he was using at the time of the 911 call.

So here's what we have. Someone lit a candle and then carelessly let it burn. Ozzy was off the wagon. It was 4:45 AM.  Sharon sounds like she's the one who was blindsided.

On the other hand ... Sharon told TMZ shortly after the incident that SHE was responsible.

Was it Sharon's fault or was she covering up for Ozzy?

Seriously, why does the media have to look at some things in this way?? Just because his words are slurred a little bit doesn't mean that he is using again and it's leading to their divorce... If you have ever had a fire in your house, it's a pretty excitable moment! He could have just very well been caught up in the moment and couldn't find the words to say. My son has severe ADHD and when he gets over excited, I can't understand him at all. Stop over reacting to it and let them be.

Sharon Osbourne is an attention whore. Stop feeding her ego by posting this crap. What an idiot, she is.

those 2 have been together for so long, it's no point in breaking up over something so minor. they just need to smile and have a good laugh about it and move on with their lives. if Ozzy wants to get Sharon back, all he needs to do, is get her one of these:
