"As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought: 'The odds are not in my favor,'" said The Talk co-host. "I decided to just take everything off."

The procedure lasted for 13 hours and took place in the summer of 2011.

Osbourne - who has left America's Got Talent - said the decision was a simple one and she doesn't want anyone's pity.

"I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother," she said, referencing son Jack's newborn. "It's not 'pity me.' [This is a] decision I made that's got rid of this weight I was carrying around."
