Sharon Osbourne talks to People about the Kardashians, why The Osbournes reboot fell through

Posted on


In a new interview with People, Sharon Osbourne held nothing back when asked about that other TV family and why the rumored Osbournes reboot fell through. 

“With the Kardashians, it’s amazing because I look at it in a business point of view and I see those three gorgeous girls influencing a young generation,” The Talk co-host told People. “But I also think they should be awarded for manipulation of the press and all of us because they do it brilliantly. I don’t think the show is real, which is no problem, but they’re manipulating their lives as long as the public is concerned.”

Osbourne maintained that her family’s stint on reality TV on MTV’s The Osbournes, which aired from 2002-2005, “came organically.” “Nobody came to us and said, ‘We’ve got an idea, will you do this?,” Osbourne said. 

And while there were talks of the show coming back, it was clear that a reboot wouldn’t come as organically. 

“We couldn’t come to an agreement on both sides,” she said. “It was business, not personal. And it’s hard with someone like Ozzy who travels the world: I can’t pull him out of his life for a certain time and say, ‘This is what you’re going to do’ because his life isn’t going to stop. He has a life. “
