A look at Sharon Osbourne’s net worth and reality TV career

Sharon Osbourne’s success as Ozzy Osbourne’s manager

Sharon’s connection to the music industry goes beyond her marriage to Ozzy Osbourne. Born in London, she is the daughter of legendary music manager Don Arden and after starting as a receptionist for his company, she took on solo projects from the 1970s.

The combination of an outspoken and unfiltered Sharon with the brooding lead vocalist of Black Sabbath resulted in a successful collaboration. During her stint as the band’s manager in 1979, the duo fell in love. However, Ozzy was married at the time to Thelma Riley.

Amid their complicated relationship status, Ozzy was fired from the band due to alcohol and drug problems. Thus, taking this opportunity to help resurrect him as a solo artist, Sharon became his manager and continued to take his career to new heights. Unperturbed by his image as the “Prince of Darkness”, she stood by him. On their 40th anniversary, Ozzy even thanked her saying, “If it wasn’t for Sharon, I’d be dead.” After heading for a brief split in 2016 due to Ozzy’s infidelity, the couple got back together a year later and also renewed their wedding vows.

Under Sharon’s strict management, Ozzy managed to earn his massive fortune as a solo artist. His active musical career from the 1980s to 2022 accrued good fortune, and he officially retired from touring in January 2023. The hard rock musician is among the first artists to earn USD 50 million from merchandise sales.

Under her management label, Sharon Osbourne Management, Sharon also managed other artists such as The Smashing Pumpkins and Motorhead.

The Osbournes: Sharon and Ozzy’s dysfunctional family on reality TV

MTV’s reality show, The Osbournes, featuring the famed rock and roll couple with their kids Aimee, Jack and Kelly unleashed Sharon’s personality as the perfect fodder for reality TV. As the unapologetically honest matriarch, unafraid to give tough love to her family, Sharon left viewers hooked. The reality show ran from 2002 to 2005 and didn’t shy away from portraying the family’s controversies. Offering a rare peek into the domestic life of Ozzy and Sharon, the pre-Kardashian era show served as an iconic introduction to reality TV entertainment.

The show ranked high on ratings as it covered the Osbourne family’s big moments including Ozzy’s near-death experience in a quad bike crash. Eccentric moments such as the family hiring a dog therapist, or Sharon throwing ham into their neighbour’s yard left fans glued to the screens. While the family decided to eventually wrap up the show within four seasons, they continue to share their crazy stories on The Osbournes podcast.

The reality show started with every member of the family reportedly taking home USD 5,000 per episode. Although the gold ratings earned them a massive hike in later seasons with the number rising to USD 5 million. Talking about The Osbournes on Celebrity Big Brother, Sharon shockingly revealed that Ozzy was stoned on every episode of the show.

Her biggest controversies

To refresh your memory, Osbourne received public backlash for her confrontation with co-host Sheryl Underwood on an episode of The Talk. She received flak for defending Piers Morgan’s controversial take on Meghan Markle’s comments about mental health issues during the Oprah Winfrey interview.

Osbourne and Underwood had a heated exchange on-air and shortly after this, she exited the series. This is not the only time that she found herself in the middle of a scandal; in 2008 she was accused of assaulting a woman who insulted her husband. Sharon allegedly was involved in a catfight with a former Playboy model on the US reality show Rock of Love.

Her feuds with other high-profile personalities have been well-known, such as the beef between her and Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden. Their decades-long feud ignited during Ozzfest 2005 when Sharon was accused of allegedly sabotaging the band’s performance.

Likewise, she recently also shaded Adele, James Corden and Ellen DeGeneres during her recent appearance on Celebrity Big Brother 2024. She shocked everyone by mocking Vogue Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour by saying, “I think she’s the C-word” on the show.

How Sharon Osbourne spends her fortune?

Sharon has spent a significant amount of money on plastic surgeries and has openly discussed the same. She publicly shared that she has spent approximately GBP 300,000 on cosmetic procedures.

While speaking to The Telegraph, Sharon admitted that she is a massive spender and said, “‘I’ve spent a million on cosmetic surgery and too much on designer clothes.”  In 1999, she spent over USD 120,000 on a facelift, tummy tuck, eye lift, abdominoplasty, liposuction and botox.

Sharon’s big splurges also include a USD 2 million Tiffany & Co ring which she admitted was a gift to herself. She and her daughter Kelly Osbourne were also accused of inappropriately flaunting their wealth after they showed off expensive home items such as a statue worth GBP 8,000 and a cushion costing GBP 800 on a show.

The real estate portfolio of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne is quite impressive. The couple reside in Los Angeles and own a house in Buckinghamshire, England. The couple also owned a sprawling mansion in Hancock Park which they put up for sale at USD 18 million. The Osbournes sold a West Hollywood condo for USD 4.8 million last year.
