Wanna piss off Sharon Osbourne? Ask her if she thinks there would be any controversy over the fact that a family with past drug issues like hers is hosting a family-oriented variety show. That's what one reporter (not us!) did this morning during the press conference call to promote the family's new show Osbournes: Reloaded.
"That must be the most ridiculous question I have ever been asked in my entire career," Osbourne spewed. "I'm really angry. Do you know how many people in this country alone suffer from addiction?"
"This is a terrible epidemic that covers every race," she continues. "It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, black or white. It's an epidemic of drugs and alcohol in this country. OK? And all my family are examples of being truthful about their condition and working through it and trying to better themselves as human beings."
She continues, "You know that we have been so open about our lives. My husband has struggled with addiction his entire life. And my son has been clean and sober for six years and lives a very, very strict AA lifestyle. And, so if anything he is a beacon of hope to any young person in this country who is struggling with addiction. So when you talk about family, we are family and we are a real family. I've taken real offense, because you know why? We're real people. And probably half of the people watching our show, they have someone in their family who has a problem with alcohol and drugs."
