It’s been an interesting week for The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne.

On Tuesday, Osbourne trashed U2, and forever earned a place in the hearts of the millions who are still trying to figure out how to delete that damn album from their iTunes.

Earlier today, however, Sharon shocked viewers in a very different way when she revealed that she once slit her wrist several times in an effort to show her future husband, Ozzy Osbourne, how much she loved him.

Sharon made the shocking revelation as part of The Talk‘s "Secret Week," for which each of the ladies was asked to confess something about their pasts that they’d previously kept hidden:

Osbourne says she’d never previously discussed the incident "out of embarrassment," and added that even her children had never heard the story before.


"I was 27, I was just going out with Ozzy at the time," Osbourne said. "And when we first got together, we would drink a lot…It’s about 4 in the morning and he says to me, ‘How much do you love me?’"

"And I’m saying I’d do anything for you. I’d give my life for you."

At that point, Sharon says she took a "dirty steak knife" and cut her wrists several times, saying, "I love you" with each slash.

Sharon says she’s been sober since shortly after that incident. Ozzy relapsed last year after over a decade of sobriety, but is reportedly completely drug free these days.
