Jack Osbourne, son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, revealed earlier this week his diagnosis of the autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis. Jack and fiancée Lisa Stelly welcomed daughter Pearl Clementine just two weeks ago. People magazine reported the 26-year-old new father was "angry and frustrated and kept thinking, 'Why now?'"
Experts aren't quite sure why the characteristic inflammation and nerve damage occur, but according to the National Institutes of Health, the multiple sclerosis symptoms typically include muscle weakness, numbness or tingling sensations and problems with coordination and vision. More common in women, MS is usually diagnosed between age 20 and 40, and symptoms may start out mild, come and go or become so severe that a person becomes unable to speak or walk. Marshall of Rock sends positivity and well wishes in this life battle for Jack.
There is no known cure for MS, although Osbourne, 26, says he plans to manage the disease with medication and holistic treatments. Sharon Osbourne emotionally broke her silence on her son's Jack Osbourne's recent diagnosis with MS on her show 'The Talk.' With tears streaming down her face, Sharon thanked "everyone for all their texts and goodwill and love they send to us..." Jack and his finacee will be on 'The Talk' today and we'll post that video as it becomes available.
Sharon Osbourne also stopped by 'Conan,' later in the day, addressing Jack's MS diagnosis. "He is doing so amazing. He is so strong and so positive and, yes, my son will conquer." Sharon even managed to have a laugh with Conan, revealing that hubby Ozzy has graduated from texting to sexting, and he sent her a pretty dirty pic on Valentine’s Day.
Ozzy Osbourne is a Grandpa now as son Jack Osbourne and his fiancée, Lisa Stelly, welcomed daughter Pearl yesterday (Apr. 24). Baby girl weighed in at 8 lbs., 6 oz. An editor (Rosie Nixon) for the UK's Hello magazine first revealed the news on Twitter.
"HELLO! can exclusively announce the safe arrival of @MrJackO & @lisamarstelly's baby girl Pearl weighing 8lb 6oz. Love & congrats to them!" the editor wrote. Jack then retweeted the message, confirming the news.
After announcing they were expecting their first child less than two weeks after confirming their engagement, Osbourne, 26, admitted he was “excited [and] a little nervous” about becoming a father.
Ozzy is certainly a proud Grandpa, but new Grandma Sharon Osbourne will be doing most of the spoiling of her new Grandaughter, saying, I’m going to be the grandmother from hell because I am going to spoil this baby so bad. My son and Lisa are going to be like, 'Get her out of here!’"
"Today I witnessed my first grandchild being born, life changing experience,” the proud grandma Tweeted last night. "She is an angel."
Congrats to the new parents!
The Osbourne family will return with their own show as Toronto’s Cuppa Coffee Studios is producing ‘The F’n Osbournes,’ a 20-episode stop-motion animated series.
Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly Osbourne voice themselves in the series. Jack and Sharon will also have a role in shaping the show’s scripts. Sharon is currently a co-host on 'The Talk,' the CBS daytime talk show, but the rest of the Osbourne family hasn't been part of a TV show since the failure of 'Osbournes: Reloaded' on FOX. That show only lasted one episode.
"Teaming up with Cuppa Coffee has spawned a great opportunity to produce a unique animated prime-time show," said Sharon, who shares executive producer duties with Jack. “I’ve been excited about animating our often crazy lives for a while now." Jack swears the show will be “a radical and humorous new spin on our family."
Cuppa Coffee also produced MTV's 'Celebrity Deathmatch.' Founder Adam Sheehan said about the new Osbournes project: “Although it is a cartoon, it’s certainly not one for little kids, bearing in mind the family that are at the root of it,”
Cuppa Coffee will shop the series at the MIPTV market in Cannes, France in April.
The first-ever Rock & Roll Roast with Guitar World Magazine honoring Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society) took place last Thurday noght (Jan. 19) at The Grove in Anaheim, California. It was presented by Epiphone Guitars and sponsored by Monster Energy Drink, EMG Pickups, Revolver Magazine, Marshall Amplification, Dunlop, Eagle Rock Entertainment and Samson, with a portion of all proceeds going to the MusiCares charity.
Roastmaster Sharon Osbourne told Rolling Stone exactly what she had in mind for the roast. "I’ve got to be step on his balls tonight," she said of Wylde. "I’ve known him since he was 18. He calls me 'mum,' and I feel like his mom. So I can be disrespectful, horrible, mean to him for two hours and get away with it."
For Osbourne though, it was all done with a great deal of love. "My kids grew up with Zakk. Jack was about eight months old when Zakk first came to the band. My son is now 26 and having a child, so that’s how long he’s been with us," she said. She also spoke on behalf of her husband, Ozzy, who was scheduled to be there, but is now in England working on the Black Sabbath album. "Ozzy is very proud of Zakk – very, very proud. He’s proud of the man he’s become – he's sober and fabulous."
Others there to pay tribute and trash Zakk included: Fozzy's Chris Jericho, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Slipknot and Stone Sour's Corey Taylor, as well as comedy and roasting vets Jim Norton, Brian Posehn, Jim Florentine and more. A video bit featured Wylde's wife emerging from under a table and a very pleased William Shatner teasing Wylde. Also speaking via video were Judas Priest's Rob Halford, American Idol judge Randy Jackson and contestant James Durbin, with whom Wylde performed on the show last season, as well as Steel Panther, the Ultimate Warrior, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G.
Some of the best one-liners included:
Comedian Brian Posehn to Chris Jericho: "Comedy is hard, isn't it? Stick to sucking at everything else."
Comedian Jim Norton to Scott Ian: "You look like Ben Kingsley eating a raccoon." [referencing the Anthrax guitarist's trademark beard.]
Current Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G. to Zakk Wylde (via video): "Zakk, I grew up learning all of your riffs and solos. Then I learned how to play real music."
Scott Ian on Zakk Wylde: "Zakk's guitar playing is way less diatonic and way more gin and tonic."
Zakk Wylde on Sharon Osbourne: "There's a lot of faces up here, and Sharon's is probably the newest. I'm kidding, Mom. You don't look a day over artificial."
Zakk Wylde on Scott Ian: "Scott's been playing lots of poker lately, and like Anthrax, they can both barely pull a full house."
Zakk Wylde on Corey Taylor: "Corey Taylor was in a Tenacious D cover band called Pugnacious P. Now he's in a Nickelback cover band called Stone Sour."
Brian Posehn to Scott Ian: “So you're responsible for Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit (thanks to Anthrax's early collaboration with Public Enemy on a remake of 'Bring The Noise'). On behalf of everybody, (screw) you."
Posehn offered a detailed breakdown of potential future honorees. "I think Ozzy would be a good one, I think Lemmy (Kilmister, Motorhead) would be good. There’s a lot to make fun of and he seems like he has a sense of humor," he said. "Lars (Ulrich, Metallica) would be good, James (Hetfield, Metallica) would be horrible. You could not go after James Hetfield. (Megadeth's Dave) Mustaine might be good. I’d be a little afraid of him, depends on what day you catch him."
Ulrich and Osbourne were popular choices. But Sharon Osbourne had a different metal icon in mind for next year, one that we would pay to see. Asked who she'd like to see roasted in 2013, she replied, "I think Axl Rose, and I’m the woman to fuck him."
Here's the appearances of Rockers from this past week on the talks shows, either sitting down for an interview or performing. Ozzy was out promoting his new book "Trust Me, I'm Dr. Ozzy" on a couple of shows, and Evanescence and Chris Cornell performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Evanescence performed on Thursday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live (Oct. 13) and played "What You Want," the first single from their new album, "Evanescence". They also performed "Going Under" as a web only performance on jimmykimmel.com:
Chris Cornell of Soundgarden performed his great new solo track "The Keeper" from the "Machine Gun Preacher" soundtrack on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night (Oct. 12)
Ozzy, Sharon and Jack Osbourne sat down for the full hour on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" (Oct. 11) to discuss "The Osbourne's" MTV show, getting sober, the incident where Ozzy nearly killed Sharon, and more. Jack Osbourne also that he and his fiancée Lisa Stelly are expecting their first child.
"I'm excited. I'm a little nervous." Jack said. Ozzy reportedly jumped for joy and hearing the news, saying "I'm shocked. I think it's fabulous." Sharon said, "I'm happy because it's what Jack wants so I'm happy, and I've always wanted to be a grandma so it couldn't be better." Ozzy already has four grandchildren; two each from daughter Jessica and son Louis from his previous marriage to Thelma Riley.
Video footage (Oct. 12) of Ozzy Osbourne's wife/manager Sharon Osbourne announcing on her CBS daytime talk show "The Talk" that she will become a first-time grandmother next April can be seen below.
Ozzy also appeared on NBC's The Today Show on the morning of October 12th. The interview was conducted by former President George W. Bush's daughter, Jenna Bush Hager:
