Sharon Osbourne Using Ozzy's Sisters On Her New TV Show (4/7/2006)

Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne has offered husband Ozzy's sisters a big break into the entertainment industry.

The former reality TV star is sending the Black Sabbath rocker's siblings Jean, Trisha and Gillian to the streets as reporters for her new UK ITV chat show.

A show insider says, "They did their first job on Tuesday. The idea is to call them the Ozzettes and have them interviewing celebrities on red carpets. It's funny because they're basically fifty-something housewives from Birmingham, and couldn't be more different to your average entertainment hacks."

In related news, Sharon recently snubbed an $8.5 million offer to turn her colourful life story into a movie. Hollywood studios have been involved in a bidding war to persuade the rock matriarch to allow her soul-baring autobiography EXTREME to be adapted for the big screen. But Osbourne, married to former hellraiser OZZY OSBOURNE, found writing the book so harrowing she refuses to upset her family by dredging old traumas up once again. She says, "The book was hard to write. And I feel the book covered it all." Extreme chronicles her family's highs and lows - including alcoholism, drug abuse, bribery, Ozzy's arrest for attempted murder and her own fight against cancer.
